Here's an excerpt from an article on earplugs for musicians. I don't know
what Roger Miller looks like, because they've used a picture of Pete. It's
interesting that Pete can't use these earplugs. I guess he needs to hear
every nuance of the music.
Miller is just one of a long line of illustrious personalities who have
hearing problems caused by loud music.
US President Bill Clinton (news - web sites) was fitted with high-tech,
in-the-canal hearing aids in 1997, after complaining that he "often cant
make out what hecklers occasionally shout at him while he is making
speeches," according to his spokesperson at the time.
Doctors have said the former president's saxophone playing and penchant for
rock music contributed to his hearing loss.
And Pete Townshend, of legendary British rock group the Who, has what he
describes as "severe hearing damage" which began as "tinnitus, ringing in
the ears at frequencies that I play guitar."
