Tinnitus may end Townshend’s career
Guitarist Pete Townshend told Rolling Stone
magazine that he is suffering from a return of his
tinnitus, a painful ringing and buzzing caused by years
of exposure to high levels of sound. He says he will
test a new in-ear filtering system during the Who’s
next gig, at the end of March. If it doesn’t work, he will
give up performing.
