Prince's hearing

HOW did he protect his hearing during his long and loud career? I started the Prince's vocal cords thread, so I might as well work through every isolated body part if no one minds.

It is to where he can hear himself and his music too which helps keep him in key.

Great question! I wonder if he had tinitus, that constant earring issue.

Surely I'm not the only person who noticed that, in later years, he was back to using "old-fashioned" on-stage monitors? I wonder why? hmmm

It also has to do with strategically placing the monitors on and around the stage to protect your hearing too.

At concerts, I always see the performers wearing the special ear plugs. If you look hard enough during some videos of Prince's live performances, you will see he wears earplugs.
