Some people prefer not to socialize often. Why in this crazy world does that now have to be labeled with a disease...caps lock...anger...hope he doesn't read this and cancel the tour...
Aspergers is not a disease, it's not even a disorder, it's just that some people's brains are literally wired differently. I'm sure there have been millions of people that went undiagnosed, just thinking they were weird, awkward, got bullied and teased, etc because they could not fit in socially, etc and struggled not knowing there were others like them and a valid reason (not a negative thing, just a concrete reason) some people might have always truly felt 'different' all their lives. People with Aspergers aren't obvious to others in whats going on with them, a lot of times its a purely internal awareness that they feel excluded in ways they cant seem to explain from the rest of the human race.
Knowing you are OK and there are others out there you could possibly relate to or at least have acore thing in common with is very relieving and validating.
The most common feeling when a person discovers they have Aspergers: 'Well that explains a lot!" (Sometimes everything!) because people are born with it and have it all their lives and a lot of times never find out.
Also: a lot of people with Aspergers tend to have narrow focuses of what they are into... With some people it changes on a regular basis, like every three months they have a new obsession level interest, with others its a looooong term interest or hobby. Aspergers people tend to be highly logical and exacting about details, and this includes musical performance, if one has an aptitude for it. If someone with Aspergers had a long term interest in music, they would not necessarily need the natural born talent because with that level of intense interest, just the time taken to practice would override the need, but I honestly think all three of these guys are terribly, naturally gifted in their chosen instruments, and the world is a better place because they were driven to become good at what they did and came together as a unit.
Seriously, no matter what the circumstances had to be in order to have them come together, I'm very glad they did.
I don't care if he has Aspergers or not, but if he did it wouldn't be a bad thing, it would just make sense.
