Kinda...

As shown in this video, Neal will be on the next Spock's Beard album, which is being worked on as we speak. Neal is helping out with some writing, and I guess playing too. I know he wrote stuff for the last album "X", but I think he has more of a hand in the writing of the album this time around.



I don't have X or any other post-Neal album, but if he's going to be this prominent on the next one, I'll have to do some catching up, especially with the warm reception X has gotten.

I would prefer he work on new Transatlantic with Portnoy. X is a decent listen, when I first downloaded it, I gave it one listen and thought mehhh.
Just recently listened with a more open ear and it is grwoing on me.
 
I guess Neal cannot sit still for long.

Question then would be whether or not Portnoy joins Neal in Spock's Beard...

He stated that he is not re-joining them, but that he just worked on material for the new album. He is still remaining solo.

To get the hits of course.

Actually, Portnoy would have a better chance of joining The Flower Kings than Spock's Beard (if youve been following the TFK Appreciation Thread)

I do really like how Neal has been helping the Beard, though it's kind of weird.

Yes.....all these groups are now much more projects than actual bands...which is fine by me. I think TFK will be next......

^ No way. The Flower Kings is Stolt, Bodin, Reingold, and Froberg; not just Roine Stolt.

Thanks for posting... I was so busy around the holidays that I missed this one!  A new SB album with Ted Leonard on vocals and Neal writing material?  Very interested to see how this turns out.  Nick is a phenomenal drummer and backup vocalist, but I was never huge on him as a front man.

On a completely different note, you gotta love how Alan plays lead guitar with his fingers but bass with a pick (apparently).  Weird  :)

Fall? Is that the name? Or does it mean this Autumn?
Coldness doth get away with the badness.

Excerpts from rough mixes of five songs from the upcoming Spock's Beard album, to be released (tentatively) in fall, 2012. Spock's Beard is Alan Morse, Ryo Okumoto, Dave Meros, Ted Leonard and Jimmy Keegan, More to come.
