ERIC CLAPTON Says He's Going Deaf: Rolling Stone
Eric Clapton revealed that he was going deaf while discussing his ongoing health issues in an interview with BBC 2. Clapton, who’s 72 years old, noted he plans to keep performing live, but said, "I've got tinnitus, my hands just about work. I'm hoping that people will come along and see me, maybe more than because I'm a curiosity. I know that is part of it, because it's amazing to myself I'm still here."
He only has one show coming up, which is in Hyde Park in London this summer. There’s also a new documentary about his life that’s out, called Eric Clapton: Life In 12 Bars.
