The Vines rocker Craig Nicholls avoids using the Internet and refuses to own a cell phone, insisting he finds modern technology impossible to comprehend.

The Australian singer/guitarist, who suffers from Asperger syndrome, is adamant he feels "no connection" with the world and admits he cannot even drive a car.

Nicholls, who is preparing to release new album Wicked Nature, the follow-up to the band's 2011 record Future Primitive, tells NME magazine, "I really have no connection to anything. I can't drive a car, I don't have a mobile phone, I can't work computers or the Internet or anything. I don't understand it, so I don't fit in. It seems alien to me but it's this big part of most people's everyday lives."
