Piano Man 'Link to Sussex'

A suggestion that a mystery man who stunned carers by giving a virtuoso piano performance may be from the Sussex area is being investigated, his social worker said today.

The man has not uttered a word since police picked him up wandering aimlessly near the beach in Minster on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, in the early hours of April 7, dressed in a dripping wet suit and tie.

All efforts to communicate with the shy and agitated man, aged in his 20s or early 30s, have failed, leaving experts baffled as to his identity and where he is from.

Staff at the Medway Maritime Hospital, Gillingham, gave the mystery man a pen and paper in the hope he would write his name or draw his country’s flag.

Instead the patient, dubbed the “Piano Man”, drew highly detailed pictures of a grand piano, showing not only the keys but also the intricate inner workings of the instrument.

His social worker, Michael Camp, showed him a piano in the hospital chapel and to his amazement the man delivered a stunning, two-hour performance of classical playing. Since then, he has written music, but remains mute.

the man is probably a savant

Hello VS :)

Yeah, they still haven't found out who the guy is. Personally, I think he was dumped on the street like a puppy who's owner couldn't look after any longer: 'Free to a good home'
