Eric Clapton Reveals He's Losing His Hearing

Eric Clapton says tinnitus is causing him to go deaf

He went on, "I'm still going to work".

"Life in 12 Bars" follows the life of the 72-year-old British guitarist from childhood to worldwide stardom, through his struggle with drugs and alcohol and the 1991 death of his four-year-old son.

In an interview on the U.K.'s BBC Radio 2, Clapton said he has tinnitus, also known as ringing in the ears.

"I am still going to work". "The only thing I'm concerned with now is being in my seventies and being able to be proficient".

Speaking about the oncoming documentary "Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars", the iconic guitarist discussed some of the challenges inherent in becoming an aging rock star, chief among them the struggle to maintain a level of performances he's mastered in previous decades.

Clapton, 72, is also battling peripheral neuropathy, which causes numbness and pain from damage in the hands and feet. I'm hoping that people will come along and see me just because, or maybe more than because, I'm a curiosity. I am going to do a show at Hyde Park (British Summer Time Festival) in July.

Clapton is far from the only rock hero afflicted with tinnitus.

"I know that is part of it, because it's wonderful to myself that I'm still here". Others reportedly include Sting, Ozzy Osbourne and Neil Young, according to Us Magazine.

He adds: "I think it's important for people to see that it's a happy ending. If you're going to go and see it, be prepared for a heavy ride".

He spoke out as he promoted new movie Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars, which is said to focus on his past and some harder experiences he's been through.
