A Serious Interview With Basshunter About Tourette's Syndrome

Post categories:

Fraser McAlpine | 16:28 UK time, Friday, 11 July 2008


There's not a lot I can add to this interview, except to say it has entirely changed my opinion of the man doing the talking.

It's with Jonas Altberg, the hell-raising dance-monster we all know as Basshunter, and it's about how he overcame the debilitating effects of Tourette's Syndrome, and took control of his life to such an astonishing degree that people in a similar situation now come to him for tips.

Give it a listen...

    I am so impressed and revered by Mr Altberg, he has beaten such a difficult condition and he is so right that he is a light in the dark for other people with this aspect to their personality. He is amazing, and although I don't have this syndrome and so cannot empathise, I hope that those who do can see the hope he offers.
