I've heared of this, autistic people who are extremely talented with 1 thing, but all the rest is off (like counting, cooking, anything...)
there is also an autistic kid who can draw anything he sees extremely accurate... they are gifted, too bad they are not really accepted by society

#8, check #4 for the whole story.
#7 if you take away autism, you are actually taking away what makes him so good in music...

#1 we call them Idiot Savanths - the people who are good in only one thing.
There are a lot of them living in our planet. There are some who are just good in drawing, in calculating complex math formulas, and in eating and screaming like this one http://www.snotr.com/video/2840

"He can barely count to 10". Yeah, but he can easily count to 4 though!

Not all autistic people are "Rainmen", those who are helped raise awareness to their problems. Don't stop at urban myths, a simple lookup on Google will open a world of knowledge.
My personal uneducated theory is: for some forms of genius you have to be autistic.

#10 just fyi, the word is 'savant', from the french verb 'savoir' meaning 'to know'.
Amazing talent, and look, his daddy loves him so much he's in a fucking home for the blind, nice one pops.....
