He’s born blind in his right eye (Nervus Opticus, nerve pathology).
He went to the Menntaskólinn við Sund College, where he got in touch with bass player Goggi Holm & drummer Ágúst Ævar “Gústi” Gunnarsson in the smoking room. They started to play Smashing Pumpkins songs. Gústi gave a violin bow to Goggi as present, but Jónsi started to use it on his guitar. He didn’t use it after the Takk album.
