I always wear earplugs on a bike, so should all of you. The SPL levels on any motorcycle at speed are profound.
Im nearly obsessively protective of my hearing. I was an audio engineer for years and my ears were my life. As a film editor now, it doesnt matter quite as much at work but it still matters

One summer I was a touring engineer and I always had a rule that if i were on stage, I had plugs in. period.
One day I went on stage without plugs because there was only one gut there - the drummer. I had to move some mics around and the drummer was at the kit. I noticed that the snare mic was off so I told the dummer, 'hey im going to adjust your mic, so dont play the kit for a second, ok?'

he looked me dead in the face and said 'yeah ok'

not three seconds later I kneel down to move the mic and he hit the snare. Permanent damage to my left ear.
I almost killed the guy...... and should have been wearing plugs on stage

fakin drummers
