18. I'll see your Craig Nicholls and raise you a David Byrne

From a young age, Byrne had a strong interest in music. His parents say that he would constantly play his phonograph from age three and he learned how to play the harmonica at age five. In his journals he says, "I was a peculiar young man borderline Asperger's, I would guess."
