I have a project for english for our "Handicapped" unit. We have to research famous people who have diseases or disorders who lived through it and name some contributions they made to the world. Does anyone have any examples for me that would be easy to find a good amount of information on? Thanks.
Gear
-Ibanez Soundgear SRX3EXQM1 (yeah, long name)
-Fender Rumble 100

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your sig if you are one of the 8% who stayed with real music.

Does having the intelligence of a 12 year old count as a disorder, because 80% of musicians fall under that category.
I'm a stupid jackass.

Syd Barrett didn't have a disease or disorder, but he was mentally ill.

Django Reinhardt had half his left hand burnt and paralyzed. He still played guitar.

Ludwig Van Beethoven suffered from tinnitus.

Daniel Johnston was bi-polor. Is that a disorder, or just a mental illness? Or both?

beat me to him.
yeah, bi-polar disorder is a mental disorder, so technically it's both.

Some blind musicians are Blind Lemon Jefferson, Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Willie McTell, Sonny Terry, and Ray Charles.

James Booker had severe schizophrenia (sp?) and thought that the CIA was after him.

Jerry Garcia was missing his middle finger on his right hand.

Oh, and Woody Guthrie had Huntingtons.
98% of teens have been around or have had alcohol. Put this in you sig if you like bagels.
