Hearing Loss Impairs Queen Drummer

Performing for decades with massive sound systems did irreparable damage to the hearing of Pete Townshend. Roger Taylor of Queen recently revealed that he also has lost a good portion of his hearing.  The drummer called the steep decline in his ability to hear '...inevitable and hardly surprising given what I've been doing for the last 40 years'.  Increased difficulty picking-up on conversations in social settings and the need to have the TV volume up higher than his wife wanted it brought Taylor to the realization that he was suffering from far more hearing loss than most people his age.  He says the inability to hear clearly would have hurt his vocal abilities were it not for hearing aids he now wears in both ears.
