“I’m deaf now. I cannot hear any more,” he told the outlet. “It’s years and years of being on the road and being two feet in front of symbols and drums. So high frequencies, I can’t hear anymore. I’ll be listening to people and they’ll tell me their names and I can’t hear anymore.”
“It’s scary because my job is hearing,” he added. “[The future] is absolutely a worry of mine.”
