Eighties new wave pop icon Gary Numan has diagnosed himself with anti-social disorder Asperger Syndrome after studying the symptoms of his communication problems. The CARS hitmaker recalls hearing about the neurobiological disorder when he was much younger but so little was known about it back then that doctors were reluctant to confirm he was a victim. But Numan, real name GARY WEBB, is convinced he has the disorder and it explains why he has considerable problems with communication and social skills. He tells London newspaper Metro, "It was suggested I had it when I was younger but no one knew much about it then. "I've read a lot about it since and I fulfil some of the diagnostic criteria... Because of Asperger, I see the world as a hostile place."
