Oct. 20, 2022 – Patton said he ultimately became depressed and was diagnosed with agoraphobia. According to the Mayo Clinic, agoraphobia is defined as “a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed. You fear an actual or anticipated situation, such as using public transportation, being in open or enclosed spaces, standing in line, or being in a crowd.”

Ultimately, Patton said that fear of going outside and being around people drove him into a pattern of excessive drinking and alcoholism. His diagnosis forced the cancellation of a string of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle shows.
