Foo Fighters star Dave Grohl has revealed that his deafness is causing problems in his marriage because his wife has to repeat herself all the time. The former Nirvana drummer admits all rock star marriages have the same issue – because loud music kills normal conversation.
Grohl told women’s magazine Elle: “Any woman who’s going to date a rock musician has to be prepared to repeat herself every 10 seconds. I’m virtually deaf… my wife asks me where we should go for dinner and it sounds like the schoolteacher from the TV show Charlie Brown!”
I checked the original article on Elle and he doesn’t say whether he has hearingaids or whether he might get some. Dude, people don’t have to sound like the teacher from Charlie Brown!
