Dave Grohl is opening up about his hearing loss.

He said that it’s hard to understand people in a crowded restaurant.

“I’ve been reading lips for, like, 20 years,” he said.

He said he can still hear “the slightest little things” when they’re recording.

He says that his “ears are still tuned in to certain frequencies.”

He added that he also performs live without wearing ear monitors.

He revealed that they’ve been performing with the same audio tech for 31 years!

He feels confident in his audio team to be able to perform without it.

He revealed that the ear monitors can mess with your spatial understanding of where you are on stage.
