Famous 80s musician Huey Lewis recently opened up about the loss of his hearing over the years.
The Huey Lewis and the News frontman explained how his diagnosis with an inner ear disorder called Ménière's disease has affected his ability to listen to music.
"It's cacophony for me. It just sounds like noise," he said of what he hears when listening to tracks.
"It occurs in all frequencies with harmonics and other things, and what happens with my particular hearing loss, is not only is it hearing loss, but it ends distortion to the bottom end," the 73-year-old explained of his condition, which began in his late 30s.
"He said, 'Jimi Hendrix had one ear, Brian Wilson had one ear, I have one ear and I'm in a barbershop quartet,'" the "This is It" singer remembered. "When he said, 'You only need one,' he was actually right. You can do pretty much anything with one ear."
However, Lewis had also lost hearing in his left ear by 2017.
