Townshend Nearly Deaf

Rock legend Pete Townshend of The Who is nearly deaf. That's according to bandmate Roger Daltrey who says Townshend is nearly "stone deaf. Daltrey tells a UK newspaper that Townshend "deafened himself in the recording studio, and when we last performed he had to stand right next to the speakers to hear anything. I don’t know what Pete will do. I don’t want to do a tour and have him end up completely deaf.”
