Noel Gallagher has revealed that he was recently diagnosed with tinnitus.
Speaking to Talk Sport, he said: “I went for a brain scan. They did find it… I’ve got a bizarre ringing in my ears. I think it’s just through playing guitar for the last 20 years, so I had to sit in a tube in the hospital. The funny thing is they give you these headphones and I chose classical music. It came on and it was the exact music I play to my little kid when he goes to bed. I was in there for 25 minutes. It was horrible”.
Commenting on the diagnosis, he said: “It’s an accumulation of many things but I’ve had a bloody great time doing it all and if I do eventually die of brain disease, it will have been worth it”.
Tinnitus Awareness Week this year takes place from 4-10 Feb.
