Noel Gallagher is losing his hearing after years of suffering from tinnitus.

The former Oasis star discovered he had the condition after experiencing buzzing in his ears, and in a new interview with Britain’s Daily Star newspaper, claimed years of rocking out in front of packed stadiums is to blame for the deterioration.

“I am going deaf. I do like to have my television loud,” the 52-year-old admitted. “Every time my missus (Sara MacDonald) goes out and comes back in and I’m watching television, she’s like, ‘What the f**k? You can hear it up the street.'”


Noel was diagnosed with tinnitus after he went for a brain scan.

“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. I think it’s just through playing guitar for the last 20 years,” the Wonderwall hitmaker stated.”The funny thing is they give you these headphones and I chose classical music. I was in there for 25 minutes. It was horrible.”
