  • The noise all around us

    I've always worn earplugs when I play the drums or cut the grass but as this article points out, we are exposed to more noise than we may realize.

    I protect my ears, and I have sound level meters to make sure.

    There are places I won't go because of the volume, and I let them know.

    When on stage, I run the sound level meter and choose whether to put the 15db or 25db musician's ear plugs in. I don't let more than 85db hit my ear drum at work, or anywhere else if I can help it.

        Probably quieter? Or windier? Couldn't say, I visited the south rim, made it halfway down, and back up again.

            Depends on how much rock and roll you have played
