Celebrities too experience ear noise and tinnitus.

If you are in your 50s and 60s, you may be experiencing constant ringing in your ears and other ear noises known as tinnitus. It has been discovered that baby boomers who grew up listening to loud music are more likely to have this problem compared to previous generations.

To prove the damaging effects of listening to high volume music for years, we can look at the roster of veteran rock musicians who now suffer from constant ringing in the ears and other ear noises caused by tinnitus.

Here is a partial list of rock and roll royalty who have admitted to having tinnitus and hearing problems:

– John Entwhistle and Pete Townshend of The Who. Townshend is completely deaf in one ear as a result of an onstage explosion, high decibel concerts, and excessively loud volume in headsets.
– Mick Fleetwood, drummer of Fleetwood Mac, confessed in a recent Rolling Stone Magazine interview that excessive volume and a lack of caution led to his own hearing problems.
– Neil Young of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Jeff Beck of the Yardbirds, Ted Nugent, Huey Lewis, and Bono (U2) have all experienced tinnitus or other hearing problems during their careers.
– Musicians from Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and My Bloody Valentine have also experienced varying degrees of hearing loss over the years.

However, it’s not just loud music that causes hearing problems. Other entertainers and celebrities have also suffered from hearing issues:

– Both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy developed tinnitus-like challenges after a prop explosion during the filming of a Star Trek episode in the late 60s.
– Actor and comedian Steve Martin acquired tinnitus while filming a pistol-shooting scene in “¡Three Amigos!” in 1986.
– Famous individuals such as Barbra Streisand, Morgan Fairchild, Peter Jennings, Larry King, Richard Thomas, and presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan have all experienced ear noises associated with tinnitus.

It’s important to note that having tinnitus does not necessarily mean you will lose your hearing completely. However, if you are experiencing constant ringing or any other unusual sounds in your ears, it is recommended to schedule a hearing exam as soon as possible.
