The Times News Article: Rowdy gigs have left me deaf, says The Who’s Roger Daltrey


Daltrey, 74, declared himself “very, very deaf” at a solo performance in Las Vegas and implored his young fans to wear earplugs. “The trouble with these ear things that I wear is that I am very, very deaf,” he said. “And I advise you all — all you rock’n’roll fans — take your f***ing ear plugs to the gigs . . . If only we had known when we were younger. We are lip-reading.”
