My suspicions have been confirmed- my hearing is about 50- 60% of what it should be for a man of my age. It's the music that's done it, from playing and going to concerts and clubs.

Looks like I'm wearing earplugs to gigs from now on. I don't want to end up like Bob Mould or John McGeoch.

How are your lugs doing?

I might actually get some earplugs for practices etc.

I played a gig a few months ago and my left ear was ringing insistently for 2 weeks solid. It's gone away now, but I can definitely tell I've lost a bit of my top-end hearing response. I used to be able to hear the 19Khz whistle of the TV when it was switched on, now I can't hear it anymore.

My brother has permanent tinitus in his right ear, from 1 gig he went to when he was 18.

Wear ear plugs, they save your hearing.

My hearing is fucked. I usually have trouble hearing people speaking at normal volume.
Unfortunately this doesn't seem to stop me getting woken up/kept awake by twatty loud housemate all the time.

Is it MikeH's noise that's waking you, or the feel of his hands on your shoulders and hairy belly against your back?

Which one? Me coming home pissed and being loud or Lee running up and down the stairs and jumping up and down in his room all night.
