The Slice

Loud concerts and hearing loss

"Let's just say that thanks to George Thorogood and Neil Young my husband and I have great appreciation of closed captioning on TV," wrote Sandy Tarbox.

"Years ago we saw George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers at the Opera House (loudest concert ever performed there). When we came out of the concert a local radio station kept the enthusiasm going by playing even more Thorogood. We rocked out all the way back to Post Falls.

"Next morning my husband gets in his car to go to work, turns on the engine and nearly blew himself out of the car with the volume of the stereo. Apparently our ears were so numb after the show we had the radio cranked up a little bit for the trip home."
