The Who rocker Pete Townshend fears his music career will come to an end in the next few years, because of problems with his hearing.
The 64 year old has suffered from partial deafness and tinnitus for many years, and admits the condition is now so bad he is having to cut back the amount of time he spends recording in the studio.
And he has to limit his onstage performances because his hearing issues are affecting his ability to play live.
He says, "My hearing trouble makes it quite difficult for me to work in the studio for long periods of time. I have to be quite careful not to work too much, and not to tour too much. As I get older my hearing is naturally falling off with age so I'm having to take great care."
