Rocker Bob Mould is convinced the U.S. military will soon develop a cure for tinnitus.
The former Husker Du star has suffered from the distressing ear-ringing condition for years but insists he has "learned to live with it".
He is also adamant the illness is not worth worrying about because medical technology is moving so quickly that experts will soon develop a solution.
Mould tells Uncut magazine, "My head rings all the time, but I've learned to live with it. I figure, the U.S. military, they're on the leading edge of concussive hearing loss because of the troops in the field. So I'm guessing in 10 years they're gonna have a device I can snap on my ear and it'll retrain the muscles. I think those things may exist, but there's no point now. I'm going on tour in a couple of months!"
