Swedish Man Gets Benefits For Heavy Metal Addiction
No mention of the type of metal Roger Tullgren listens to. IMHO, glam metal would qualify for at least being taken away by friendly men in white coats for "observation."...The results of a psychological analysis enable the metal lover (Roger Tullgren, age 42) to supplement his income with state benefits...
"His new boss meanwhile has given him a special dispensation to play loud music at work. ..."
"I have been trying for ten years to get this classified as a handicap," Tullgren told The Local.
"I spoke to three psychologists and they finally agreed that I needed this to avoid being discriminated against..."
His heavy metal lifestyle was classified as a disability, an assessment that entitles him to a wage supplement from the job centre...
"Some might say that I should grow up and learn to listen to other types of music but I can't. Heavy metal is my lifestyle," he said.
