These Are 4 Musicians You Have Aviophobia In Common With
You're not alone if you have aviophobia, which is the fear of flying and prefer to travel any other way but that way. I also have aviophobia and prefer to either drive or take the Amtrak on long distant travels.
I made a list of my 4 favorite and popular musicians that share aviophobia with me. I've never enjoyed flying in a plane and certainly didn't enjoy it the last time when I was 5. I remember the little turbulence I felt I would be praying to God that I wouldn't lie to my parents. There are even people who are afraid of being in a car which must make life even harder on them. Even the time I was in high school, I was a Junior at Coronado High School when we spent the whole day watching the news on September 11, 2001. That was just another reminder of why I feared flying and will always be afraid to fly. Now TMZ caught up with Post Malone and discussed that close call he had in the sky.
As many as 12.5% of Americans struggle with a phobia in the United States.
Now Post Malone recently had a scare when he was on a plane that left him worried. He right off the bat says how he hates flying and explains the play by play in the plane that day.
As for Blink 182's drummer, Travis Barker didn't mind flying until that one fatal night that changed him. After he was involved in a plane crash and survived, he also developed aviophobia. Of course, any kind of traumatic experience like this would give you aviophobia!
Not only did Thom Yorke have aviophobia, he also developed a phobia of cars from a car crash he was in many years ago. His car accident was in 1987 and later would also be a part of songs like "Karma Police" and "Rabit In Your Headlights."
Johnny Cash not only had a fear of flying but also had a fear of snakes. A lot of people assumed Johnny Cash was fearless but in reality, he did have a few fears.
