Former Dream Theater and current Sons of Apollo drummer, Mike Portnoy, has shared a new post on his official Instagram account, revealing his biggest phobia for the first time.

In the statement, Portnoy explained that he describe him as a germophobic. Germaphobic is a person with an extreme fear of germs and an obsession with cleanliness.

As you might imagine, the coronavirus outbreak may have caused him to make this interesting statement. However, Mike said that he was a ‘social distancing’ supporter before coronavirus disease.

Here’s what Mike Portnoy said:

“Call me germaphobic, but I was a supporter of this whole “social distancing” thing way before it was in fashion!! 🤣😷”

He also wrote:

“I can’t wait for the next phase…. ‘Social media distancing!’ 🤣”

An Instagram user named pimre commented and said:

“I haven’t felt so peaceful in public places in ages.”

Another fan named laureldoumasorensen wrote:

“Introverts be like, this is what I wanted my whole life.”
