Rockers against tinnitus

SHEFFIELD, UK—Rockers with tinnitus will team up on an album to help the British Tinnitus Association  raise awareness of tinnitus, a sometimes-tormenting condition that is especially prevalent among musicians.

Coldplay and the Black Eyed Peas are among the internationally popular bands that will perform on the album, which is being produced in partnership with Eddy Temple-Morris, a British DJ, record producer, and TV host.

The album will be called I Am The One In Ten, which alludes to the percentage of tinnitus suffers in the UK. All the groups involved have at least one member with the condition.

The goal is to inspire research into the causes and treatments of tinnitus, as well as to attract investment in that area.

  1. I have had tinnitus for the last 13 years in my left ear. Have good days and bad days with it. Sometimes I just want to reach in and tear it out but have managed to not go nuts yet. It does not prevent me from sleeping which is a good thing. I contacted this , at least it seem to happen when, I took zyiban to aid in quitting smoking. I succeeded with that but was left with the lovely ringing in the one ear. More like locuses in the field sound. I have been able to tolerate and handle the sound and don’t think I have lost any hearing, as of yet, because of. I did in my youth love my music turned way up and used a walkman, with it blasting a number of times, so this probably contributed to having this and perhaps not the medication, don’t know. All I know is I have this, so sad, but have no choice but to carry on as best I can. It has not gotten to the point that I need to seek medical help and when it does, I will. Fingers crossed. lol
