Former Dream Theater and current Sons Of Apollo drummer, Mike Portnoy, has posted a new photo on his Instagram account and showed off the priceless picture from his childhood.
As you might already know, Mike Portnoy has a supergroup named ‘BPMD’ which is featuring Exodus singer Bobby Blitz, Machine Head guitarist Phil Demel, and Mark Menghi.
Today, BPMD’s official Instagram account has revealed an unseen childhood photo of Mike Portnoy in which he can be seen while playing drums at the age of four or five.
On his Instagram account, Mike also reposted the photo and didn’t write any message over the caption area, but the band’s page did. Here’s what BPMD wrote about the photo:
“There you have it, folks! Baby Mike Portnoy getting an early start on the rest of his life! Throwback Thursday drum machine.”
A fan named Florian asked:
“Playing Neal Peart?”
“Neil Peart wouldn’t record his debut album until 6 years after this photo! I was definitely listening to the Beatles (and still am…)”
