I was so glad when he came out publicly with it. I have suspected for a while that he might have AS, don't ask me why.

he is such a lovely chap as well.

Nice one Chris. :D

I sometimes wonder if Morten Harket might have it. I love him, he's talented and a gorgeous genius, but noticed he always fiddles with his ear pieces like they're annoying him, and has a difficult relationship with other band members.

Things that are not surprising. I'd suspected for a while too. Special interest is birds I'll bet.
