Am currently taking a break from live peformances, having developed a quite severe hearing impairment in my right ear, along with bad tinnitus and headaches on the same side. It's possible this may be due to an acoustic neuroma (a small tumour growing around the auditory nerve). Or it may just be a combo of too much gigging and old age. Am waiting for an MRI scan to see if surgery might is required. Either way, my left side hearing remains reasonable. So, once it's all sorted, I hope to start doing a few acoustic shows - though quite possibly in mono!
