Huey Lewis Discusses Hearing Loss

Huey Lewis says that he hopes his battle with hearing loss doesn’t spell the end of his music career. His struggle with Meniere’s disease, an ailment that affects the inner ear prompts vertigo and other disorienting symptoms, forced Huey Lewis & the News to cancel their tour dates for the rest of 2018. “I haven’t come to grips with the fact that I may never sing again,” Lewis said on Today. “I’m still hoping I’m gonna get better. They say a positive attitude is important. I can do everything but what I love to do the most, which is a drag. I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again.” Lewis adds that he first realized things weren’t right with his hearing at a performance in Dallas back in March. “As I walked to the stage, it sounded like there was a jet engine going on,” he recalled. “I knew something was wrong. I couldn’t find pitch. Distorted. Nightmare. It’s cacophony.” Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
