'If my hearing is going to be a problem, we're finished' says the guitarist
The Who‘s Pete Townhsend has revealed that the group’s future is uncertain after his tinnitus returned.
“If my hearing is going to be a problem, we’re not delaying shows, we’re finished,” he admitted. “I can’t really see any way around the issue.”
Despite the problem, Townshend added that he will be testing a new in-ear monitoring system during the group’s Teenage Cancer Trust gig at London’s Albert Hall, to help remedy the problem.
The painful ringing and buzzing that Townshend endures, has come as a result of years of exposure to high volume.
