Uhmm .. What did I say? Well, yes ... I said:


Why now?
 Because one of my closest friend can't hide his handicap anymore.
 Because in todays entertainment environment we are all affected.

I am a musician. Am I affected?
 Most probably, yes. If you have had temporary problems with Tinitus,
then again yes.

What is Tinitus?
 Tinitus is a satanic noise unrelated to your environment, emerging out
of clear blue sky, reminiscent of those 50s tapes of electronic music
you always hated.

How do I aquire Tinitus?
 Wrong question!

How do I avoid to aquire Tinitus?
 Use ear protection. Never trust your manager should he say you are
better looking without them. Use common sense as in: Oh my goodness!?
Isn't this insanely loud? .... hello?

Take care of the volume in your walkman/ipod.

What are the consquences of Tinitus?
 You will become Beethoven, but not nescessarily with his compositional

Was that supposed to be funny?

Is it so that you yourself is becoming deaf?
