Eric Clapton reveals he's going deaf from tinnitus

Eric Clapton says tinnitus is causing him to go deaf

"Then I have to go through the whole threshold of getting calluses [on the fingers] back, coordination".

Eric Clapton attends the premiere of "Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars" during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto on September 10, 2017.

The 72 year old said despite this, he's still working.

In a recent interview with BBC Radio 2, famed guitarist Eric Clapton said he's experiencing hearing loss and ringing in his ears, also known as tinnitus. I mean, I'm going deaf; I've got tinnitus.

The hearing issues follow a 2016 disclosure by Clapton that nerve damage has made playing guitar, among other things, a challenge for him.

Shepard Smith Hits Trump With A Brutal Fact Check On Russia Investigation
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said Wednesday he hopes President Donald Trump does not try to direct him to "take control" of the Russian Federation probe.

Confirming that he still plans to perform live, Clapton added: "The only thing I'm concerned with now is being in my seventies and being able to be proficient". I'm hoping that people will come along and see me just because, or maybe more than because I'm a curiosity.

The film offers an intimate profile of his life, including his traumatic childhood, his rise to rock stardom, his struggles with drug and alcohol abuse and the tragic 1991 death of his young son Connor.

Clapton said of the film, "It's very hard for me to sit through because it goes on so long about the hard part of my life, [but] I think it's important for people to see that there's a happy ending".

With hits such as Wonderful Tonight, Cocaine, Tears in Heaven, and Layla, Clapton has won 17 Grammy Awards, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.
