Meet Jack, Luke, and Saul. These three friends are members of a British rock band that…uh…rocks. Really rocks.
Not only that, but they’re also on the autism spectrum.
They’re not the only musicians in their up-and-rising band, The AutistiX, but they form a defining part of it. The band plays cover songs, as well as their own original numbers (some of which concern the autism experience).
And they’re good; at one of their gigs, they got a standing ovation from an audience of over 1,000 people! These guys really know how to use their talents. Autism doesn’t get them down.
This just comes as proof that talent knows no labels.
To learn more about them, check out this video (and watch out for Luke, their bassist. He likes to photobomb (videobomb?) his colleagues!).
Want to hear from another musician on the spectrum? Check out this kid with ASD who gets to perform with Jack Black!
