Subject: RE: Musicians with Hearing Aids
Bob, if you played a lot of loud rock music, you may have lost more hearing than you think. I'd suggest a visit to a good audiologist...you may not know how much you're missing. To find a reputable audiologist, check out the website of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association -- there's also general information there about hearing loss and hearing aids.

By the way, vixen, I searched the ASHA site for "music", and couldn't find anything specific. But I'll bet if you asked them, they could point you to an audiologist with a special interest in musicians, who might be able to give you some useful information.

Aloha,
Mark (who fortunately hears OK, but some of my little patients don't)
