      Peter Townsend (The Who) was practicing with the band in the 90's for a Tommy tour. I remember reading of how they put him in a big plastic box to prevent further ear damage. He also said he really hated the idea of playing live in a box. He solved the live box problem by having his side of the stage "Quiet" as he described it. As everyone knows, the Who are going strong and he's certainly not in a box. He works with top doctors as his hearing loss is great and his tinnitus is BAD. I only occaisionally read anything about him - it's been a long time since I've read a rock music magazine. Has anyone heard from Pete lately?? It sure would be interesting to know how he does it.

      Pete Townshed reminds me of Paul Gilbert. Paul Gilbert has pretty bad hearing loss and tinnitus. He wears earmuffs when playing.
