Former Dream Theater drummer currently works with Sons Of Apollo, Mike Portnoy, has shared a new photo on his official Instagram account today and showed his reaction after seeing himself at the third spot on ‘The Greatest Prog Drummers: An Essential Top 25 Countdown’ list.

As you may check out the list of Discover Music’s Brett Milano, they put Mike Portnoy to the third place of The Top 25 Greatest Drummers of all time and called Mike the ultimate prog-metal drummer and a whizkid. While putting Mike on the third spot, they have selected King Crimson’s Bill Bruford as the best drummer of all time.

In the caption of the post, Mike re-shared his thoughts on categorizing the musicians and stated that music is not a sport despite he feels honored and flattered after seeing the list. Over 3K followers of Portnoy have pushed the like button to show their respect for him.

Here is what he said:

“As I always say, music is not a sport…it’s purely subjective and there is no greatest”, only ‘favorites…’

But it’s always flattering to be recognized in these types of articles…

Thank you! 🙏”
