Live Blog: A Day In The Life Of Jordan Rudess

Today we get to hang out with Dream Theater keyboard player Jordan Rudess. As well as taking care of the extreme prog keyboard duties with the band,  Jordan is an extremely accomplished pianist as well as having a great interest/obsession in new technology. He also has a software development company  Wizdom Music working on apps (Sample wiz, Morphwiz, Geosynth, Spacewiz, Tacyon) for iOS, Android and Miccrosoft tablets too.

Armed with his phone, he'll be posting updates throughout the day.

Assuming he could stay awake 24/7 for an entire week, that might might just about be enough time for him to name-check his list of endorsement deals.

JR should wear a Hare Krishna braid out the back of his shaved dome while also wearing a clown's Yama Yama suit like Zippy The Pinhead. It would deflect attention away from his bombastic music. He's already got the billy goat/bridge troll goatee, he might as well take it over the top.

Not sure about this "Blog" thingy on Sonicstate

Nick - suggest you think about abandoning it. Nice try, but it ain't working. Beginning to feel a bit -- "icky", entering the territory of 'heads up our own asses' if you know what I mean?

Synth Fan, I'm not sure I follow you, sure my blog post was perhaps a little self indulgent, but I needed to test the system to ensure it worked. Both the Steve Stevens and Jordan Rudess have proved to be pretty popular, we have some others line up too which I hope will be equally so. If you want to email me privately, so I can better understand your thoughts, I'd appreciate it
