Tourettes Syndrome Series-Disabled Legend Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in 1756 and died in 1791. In late 1992, the British Medical Journal published an article by endocrinologist Benjamin Simkin, M.D. speculating that Mozart had Tourette Syndrome. Apparently he wrote several letters to his cousin Maria that contained many obscene words, especially words having to do with bodily functions. It has also been documented that he was hyperactive, suffered from mood swings, had tics, and loved made-up words. Despite these behaviors, we will probably never know for certain whether Mozart had TS.

Mood Disorders Series-Disabled Legend Kurt Cobain

Kurt Donald Cobain born 20, February 1967 and died on 5 April, 1994 was an American musician, best known for his roles as lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the Seattle-based rock band Nirvana. Throughout most of his life, Cobain battled depression, chronic bronchitis, and intense physical pain due to an undiagnosed chronic stomach condition. This last condition was especially debilitating to his emotional welfare, and he spent years trying to find its source. However, none of the doctors he consulted were able to pinpoint the specific cause, guessing that it was either a result of Cobain’s childhood scoliosis or related to the stresses of performing.

Mood Disorders Series-Disabled Legend Brian Wilson

Brian Douglas Wilson was born on 20 June, 1942 in Hawthorne, California. Brian is an American musician best known as the lead songwriter, bassist, and singer of the American rock band The Beach Boys. Wilson was also the band’s main producer, composer, and arranger. Psychologically overwhelmed by these failures and by the birth of his first child in 1968, Wilson began to take on a diminished creative role within the Beach Boys. After the failure of “Break Away”, Wilson spent the majority of the following three years in his bedroom sleeping, taking drugs, and overeating. Some of his “new” contributions were remnants of SMiLE (e.g., “Surf’s Up”); those that were genuinely new reflected his depression and growing detachment from the world.
