    (November 7, 1959- )
    Born with birth defects caused by thalidomide
    Known for his interpretation of German lieder
    He is just four feet tall.
    He has hands, but no arms.
    He only has seven fingers.
    When he performs, he must stand on a chair to be seen.
    Because of his disability, he cannot take stage roles, and performs only in concert.
    He brags about having a tall girlfriend (as if there would be something wrong with having a 'little' one).
    When he was a kid, other children called him a freak.
    He was rejected from music school because it was impossible for him to play the piano.
    He is unsentimental about his handicap, and doesn't want anyone to feel sorry for him.
    Unlike some other famous musicians with disabilities (are you listening, Andrea Bocelli?), he is actually an extremely gifted artist.
    He has denounced racist German and Austrian politicians in public.
    He loves teaching.
