Eleven outstanding musicians with disabilities / disabilities
Grateful Dead band guitarist Jerry Garcia. Childhood, in an accident, was his brother's ax cut his right middle finger, from his right hand middle finger left only one knuckle, almost equal to nothing. However, he became a guitarist of Grateful Dead for thirty years (1965-1995). In addition, he was named the thirteenth place by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the "100 Best Guitarists of The Day" His excellent performance inspires numerous guitarists. So look around playing band friends, always for their own excuse, said: "I finger too thick, not playing properly", do not know if they ever thought, these names left the history of the guitarist, if Your fingers are not broken, their achievements can go up, but you are complaining about the finger too thick here! ? Well, think about it.
Sammy Davis Jr.
1954, because of a motorcycle accident, causing him to lose his left eye, but you know? Through his untiring efforts, he finally became a great singer, dancer and even an actor later, with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin (both of whom are well-known stars in the world) and others In the same generation on an equal footing. He also won the Grammy "Lifetime Achievement Award", and in 2002 was admitted to the "Grammy Hall of Fame." Remnants of the best portrayal of waste, it is worth all of us to follow suit, a less left-eyed people can be so positive and energetic upward, not to mention our eyes full of us?
The jazz legend guitarist, who burned his left hand in a fire in 1928, also caused a contraction of the "tendons" of his left ring finger and his little finger, making it impossible for him to open his fingers like most people did. However, his name is widely known, depends on what? It is his perseverance and relentlessness. He used his normal fingers as much as possible, and as a result, he developed his own style of play that was unique to the world and did not learn or play.
James "Munky" Shaffer
Lead singer and guitarist Paul Stanley of the classic rock KISS band. Under the scary appearance of Paul Stanley, fancy agile clothing, there is an unknown bitter story. Paul Stanley is naturally born with the disease of the deformity of the ear, the so-called "small ear syndrome," causing his right ear to be almost completely free of cartilage, and only a few cartilages also have very, very deformities. In his primary school, he was not as popular as the stage, his classmates ridiculed, humiliated, and even deaf in front of him. These were commonplace. Even after school, he had to go home with a school bag because if he walked too far Slow, it will be around the class learn to tease, push. For him, this life painful to him, I do not know how to be good. As you know, patients with small ears such as him can easily distinguish the source and direction of the sound, so he often does not know where they are, and therefore is often bullied by his classmates.
This childhood, let him develop a home stay habits, he likes to listen to music at home, only to wear headphones, can let him temporarily forget the pain and cruel real life. He is said to love the music of Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and others. When he was seven years old, he got a guitar as a birthday present. Then he met Gene Simmons (KISS band bassist, KISS band so far only Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons are veterans), his best friend and partner in life, Gene Simmons did not despise him because of Paul Stanley's disability, Instead, Paul Stanley found a unique identity. Then you know the rest of the story, is not it? Paul Stanley sang "God Gave Rock n Roll To You," and I think he was singing his own story, and he thanked God for giving him rock music.
Mountain lead singer / guitarist Leslie West. In 2011, Leslie West had to amputate his right foot because of diabetes. But I did not expect him to release a solo album last year, the name of the album is to listen to the tears, called "Still Climbing" (still up). Like a symbol of him even less a foot, but he still want, and will still continue to climb up. What I want to say is that if such a spirit is not a rock spirit, what is the spirit of rock? This is the Real Rock n 'Roll SOUL !!!!!!
Big Toe singer and guitarist (and sometimes even bassist) Mark Goffeney. Mark Goffeney, born with no two hands, relies on his determination and determination to learn how to play guitar and bass with his feet and build a band that has always been known as "Big Toe". ? He did not give up because of natural disability, but with such a self-deprecating group name, let yourself shine in the music world. In 1999, he released the album of the same name, great acclaim.
Maybe Mark Goffeney is the most famous on the list, but his talent, but also let him lean legend, you want to find a musician like him, I think it is extremely difficult. Looking at Mark Goffeney, you should know that the so-called Rock n 'Roll is really ubiquitous in response to KISS's "God Gave Rock n Roll To You," and I think one of the most valuable things God has given us is rock music It!
Victor "Moulty" Moulton
At the age of fifteen, Justin Biebe lost in the entertainment industry because of his premature reputation, causing him to lose his brain and shame. With these two kinds of disability, young Justin did not give up on themselves ... ... He is completely let go of their own degenerate deep no grudge. He called marijuana, ten prostitutes in one night, drunk driving and lost eggs to his neighbors' house. He did not give up himself because he had lost his brain and shame. He is brave, very hard, very generous to tell the world: "Yeah hey hey ~ ~ Yo, I have no brain and no shame. Hey ~ ~ ~ ~". Even without a brain, no shame, so what? He was really adored by the music that scared the bears to scare off, won the music awards without knowing a few, and the albums were sold out of the tens of millions of pieces. Once you see someone actually can be self-righteous to this point, even if he has no shame, no brain, but he still can stand in this world, Bravo, Justin Bieber!
Well, this is one of today's eleven musicians (the last one I do not know), who have never given up on themselves even though the body has a great flaw (the last one is to give up and can not give up ), Continue to inspire the energy of music, to pay tribute to those great ROCKER, but also to the last one of the great Second Two acts tribute!
