Herbie Hancock needs hearing aids, its a sad thing for a musician
Thats horrible. My heart goes out to him and to Phil Collins who had to stop making music for health issues and MASSIVE hearing loss as well.. as a musician, i'd rather have lost my legs.....
Apparently Cream was so loud that Clapton and Ginger Baker once stopped playing mid song and Jack Bruce didn't even notice.
Clapton has talked about his noise induced hearing loss for years. At 70 years old I'm guessing age related hearing loss is just compounding the problem.
Reading the headline I instinctively reached to turn the volume down to what I was listening to. Protect your ears as much as you can!
Very sad. Hope he keeps playing for many years. One of the best guitarist and songwriters ever.
That is probably the most tragic fate for a musician that I can think of. Musicians just don't play music, they love music too. To have a passion ripped from you is to have a part of your soul destroyed.
