Eric Clapton Reveals He's Losing His Hearing

Tinnitus is a ringing sound coming from inside the ear, often a symptom of a more severe condition, such as hearing loss or an injury. While the issue can be age-related or caused by ear injury, it can also be caused by noise-induced hearing loss. "The only thing I'm concerned about now is always being in my seventies and now being able to be skilful. I mean, I'm going deaf, I've got tinnitus, my hands just about work", Clapton said on Radio 2. "I mean, I'm going deaf, I've got tinnitus, my hands just about work".

Claptonis due to perform in London's Hyde Park on July 8, 2018.
