Some musicians, such as Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, and Chris Martin, have tinnitus from very loud music. Beethoven also had tinnitus. Loud noise is the leading cause for tinnitus. Musicians are prone to it, as well as hearing loss. That’s why you should wear hearing protection at concerts. Musicians are exposed to loud noises over a long period of time, but it only takes one time to incur hearing damage.
