“I think education about tinnitus and hearing protection is important because I can tell you from personal experience how awful it is when you can’t hear the appropriate sounds to what you’re seeing…. For us musicians especially terrible, but yet for every person, because you get the feeling of going crazy: The tinnitus accompanies and disturbs us not only in our social life, but, and this is even more intimate and much worse, when we are alone and want to have peace. Advances in tinnitus research can help many of us get rid of it, or at least live better with it.”
