Both brothers experience a ‘ringing’ in their ears when no actual sound is present
Beady Eye frontman Liam’s Gallagher has revealed that he suffers from tinnitus – the condition that causes a ‘ringing’ in the ears when no actual sound is present.
The condition affects a number of musicians who’ve been subjected to large amounts of loud noise over the years. Both Chris Martin of Coldplay and The Who’s Pete Townshend are sufferers and Liam’s brother Noel revealed he was diagnosed earlier this year (2013).
“Without a doubt I have tinnitus. You’re not a proper rock’n’roll star if you don’t,” Liam told The Sun after Beady Eye’s instore gig at London’s Rough Trade East on Monday (June 10). “I learned to live with it a long time ago. I put up with it – I just talk really loudly over it. I’m proud of it. Anyone who doesn’t have ringing in their ears can *!@% right off.”
