I like this list and your items order: of course a genius deaf musician and a drummer with one hand should be on top. - Metal_Treasure
Everyone is special in his own way
Playing piano is one of the hardest instruments to play,you have to listen every key of the piano in order to play a piano but when a musician is deaf and he is playing piano he can't listen then he is more than musician.and that is one of the reasons that he is one of the greatest musicians of all time - zxm
Zxm, I'm really happy that you have made this amazing list.
Beethoven is one of my most favorite musicians, he was a music god. - Ananya
What a wonderful voice, what a legend.. - Ananya
His voice is god gifted, he knew this when he was just a kid - Ananya
He had to to tune down his string to make them easier to bend and invented heavy metal in the process. The irony is that he lost his finger tips in a metal pressing factory. All hail the Godfather of Metal! - TheStargazer
Wow, I did not know this. He gets us diabetics then, and he's a very good singer. - Martinglez
What? I didn't know this! I can't believe it's true... - Metal_Treasure
Tinnitus is noise in the ears, usually ringing or buzzing.
Blindness is something bad but it's not related directly to music/singing condition whereas tinnitus is. Hansi is a hero. - Metal_Treasure
This is noise in the ears, usually ringing or buzzing, luckily - sometimes it's music. Tinnitus is a big challenge for a musician, especially a singer - imagine a live show and Hansi sings one song but in his ears there's something else. Tinnitus was one of the reasons he wanted to become a guitarist and not a singer. Nevertheless, he's one of the greatest metal singers with one of the best live performances.
Hansi: “Throughout my career my ears have been the biggest problem. I do have tinnitus, which luckily disappears from time to time, but does also come back. Since my ears work differently every day this is a big challenge for every engineer. Apart from that I constantly have to struggle with sinuses, which especially on tour can cause severe problems, because of Blind Guardian‘s rule "do not cancel a show due to illness". - Metal_Treasure
Yeah that's true, but that didn't effect his amazing skills - Ananya
He is not famous as many other musicians here but when I heard some of the songs and came to know that he is blind and he plays piano and keyboards then it made me think that he deserves more recognization,so I added him,just you can think how Beethoven showed his inspiration and then this man showed something like him(Beethoven) - zxm
Albino people can't stay in sun along with many other problems, but no natural force couldn't stop from becoming a legend - Ananya
I try to add him again, and make it more simple (thanks to admin for renaming properly his disabilities):
His right leg is one inch and a half shorter than the other one, and his spine twisted after a fall he took dancing on an amplifier, which left him with a slight limp. He said: "As I began to lose unlimited use of my body, I had to start using my head. I'm a much more remarkable person mentally than physically." - Lotuscandy
