After the release of last year’s "Three Wise Monkeys," bassist Alberto Rigoni (solo artist, TwinSpirits) is all set to start working on its follow-up album.
As an avid Dream Theater fan, Alberto Rigoni has been covering and playing the band's songs since the start of his career. Saying that "Erotomania" was the first song he learned to play back when he was 16 brought him to pay a tribute to the band by covering this song on his brand new signature model of Dingwall AR5 bass, a mix between the ABZ and Z3 series.
