NUMAN!!

3/8/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The 50-year-old resurfaced at a music festival in England, looking woebegone.

Gary Numan

Gary is considered the king of synthpop and his fans were called Numanoids.

Numan married one of his fans and suffers with Asperger Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder.

Gary Numan F-ing rules. He is a pioneer of industrial music, mixed jazz and dance, and weirdness.

I agree, he looks cool for his age. he has not sold out. it's not like he's wearing a polyester suit and selling cars. more power to him. rock and roll.

He looks like that guy from the band the CARS...Okasek?

I thought people with Auspergers Sydrome dont like to make eye contact as it confuses them. He's staring right through the camera...

Arrgh! Why is it that so many folks make a success of their talents, only to have Fate/God/Allah/Spirit/atheist Sam Harris have them then spend the fruits of their labours and talents on their health or the health of loved ones?
OK, maybe Fate/God/Allah/Spirit/atheist Sam Harris gave them those talents precisely to acquire the means to fight for their health...
But then we have those [c]rap-music devils who make a success of their non-talent, like Chris Brown, only to beat up on a woman; or we have real musicians like Jackson Browne who in a coke-frenzy beat up on a woman (Darryl Hannah), or like Ike Turner, or like real athletes like OJ Simpson who in a frenzy beat up and later killed his wife and an innocent man (Ron Goldman).
'Tain't fair. "Cars" was a great piece of influential music. Not like "Skinny Puppy" 's would-be "Industrial" music that's all recyclable industrial waste. But then I digress...

Kind of looks like a 50 year old version of Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day.

You don't "suffer" with Asperger's syndrome! It's just a different "operating system" than typical people have. Not better or worse.......just different!

wasted days and wasted nights    

His song seems prophetic nearly thirty years later--maybe the one way any of us will be able to afford to live is in cars.

ONE HIT WONDER....!!...yeah right...

yet again another so called 'news site', has got it so terribly wrong,

if the writer of this little article had done his homework instead of running of with his mouth...or should that be fingers?...he'd have easily found out that Gary Numan has released over twenty albums since he started out....how many other artists have managed this?????....NOT BAD EH ?..ESPECIALLY FOR A ONE HIT WONDER...
