JOHN LARKIN / SCATMAN JOHN picture
Scatman John (real name: John Paul Larkin) was a singer and jazz/pop pianist famous for singing despite having a Speech Impediment which made him stutter. Although born in America, he was much more popular in Europe and Japan than he ever was in the U.S. He is best known for the somewhat self-titled song "Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)". He died from lung cancer on December 3, 1999 at the age of 57.

He is considered a very inspiring example of how someone with a disability can turn his life around. He turned his stutter into an advantage in his music as scat singing has a lot of repetition in it. He even points this out in his debut song.
