Did Brian Wilson have a stroke?

I remember a co-worker saying his picture on the CD BRIAN WILSON looked as if he'd had a stroke.

1. Not that I know of. Just took WAY too many drugs.
I saw him on his first big tour in ages in the early 2000s. The man may be out of his mind, but he's still got it musically.

3. Maybe he has false teeth? Can't that make a person's speech slurred? nt

5. His hearing might have gotten worse as well
If I remember correctly, he's always been partially deaf in one ear, due to an incident of child abuse early in life.

Murry Wilson is burning in Hell for what he did to his kids.

7. I think the rampant drug abuse is the more likely culprit.
I haven't heard anything about false teeth.

4. Most Likely Tardive dyskinesia from antipsychotics
Tardive dyskinesia most commonly occurs in patients with psychiatric conditions who are treated with antipsychotic medications for many years.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardive_dyskinesia

Tardive dyskinesia is characterized by repetitive, involuntary, purposeless movements. Features of the disorder may include grimacing, tongue protrusion, lip smacking, puckering and pursing of the lips, and rapid eye blinking. Rapid movements of the arms, legs, and trunk may also occur. Impaired movements of the fingers may appear as though the patient is playing an invisible guitar or piano. Patients with Parkinson's disease have difficulty moving, while patients with tardive dyskinesia have difficulty not moving.

6. My daughter watched a Family Ties re-run from the mid- to late-80s last night.
Guest stars? The Beach Boys. B.W. looked quite drugged and almost zombified then, as well. It almost did seem like a stroke, from the way he held his body. Strange.
