“I support the German Foundation Tinnitus and Hearing Charité because, unfortunately, I myself have suffered from tinnitus for a long time. Therefore, I know what it means to have ‘one’s peace’.

I pay much more attention to my ears and health today than I did many years ago. Because tinnitus can be prevented and you can also live well with it if you take care of yourself and your body and get information in time!”

“For me as a musician, my hearing is the most important sensory organ. Hearing is everything. Of course, I know what it’s like to have tinnitus and that’s why I think research and protection are very important, because that sound drives you crazy. So please, protect young people and workaholics from this terrible noise. Let’s hear some good music!”

“In my role as an ambassador for the British Tinnitus Association, I’ve been working really hard for years to raise awareness of tinnitus among musicians, DJs and even doctors – and most importantly recently – , the government.

One in ten people in the UK suffers from tinnitus, but the government does not support research. That has to change. I put out the album titled ‘I am the one in ten’ in 2016, where every artist on the CD has tinnitus, as well as everyone else involved in the production and release of the record, from the person who designed the cover to the one handling radio promotion. Among the artists involved in the album are Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas and DJ Fresh.

Education is the key to government funding and we must do all we can to get through to those in power. I wish you much success in your educational work in Germany.”

“I find education about tinnitus and especially the protection of hearing infinitely important, so legislators should finally introduce a phon limit on unreasonable noise generation in public places by motorcycles, lawnmowers, etc., and especially in bars and discos by hearing-damaging excessively loud music – hearing is life and being deaf, life on the sidelines.”

“Tinnitus research and education is important to me, first because we musicians are at increased risk and want to use our ears for life if possible. However, as tinnitus has become more and more a common ‘disease of civilization,’ our society needs to be made more aware of it and prevention needs to be done.”

“I think education about tinnitus and protecting hearing is important because without hearing sound and the world, our lives would lose so much quality and depth.”

“I think education about tinnitus and protecting your hearing is important because hardly anyone knows how it gets lodged in your ear and how you can get it out of there (hosted it myself as a guest for a year, unfortunately)!”
