Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath Is Going Deaf

“It’s scary because my job is hearing.”

Rock singer Mark McGrath fears that that his days as a performer will soon be numbered after recently learning that he’s going deaf, People magazine reports.

McGrath is the frontman for the band Sugar Ray, which rose to fame in the ’90s with hits including “Fly,” “Someday”, and “Every Morning.”

He revealed that after years of performing, he’s starting to lose his hearing.

“I’m deaf now. I cannot hear any more,” he told DailyMailTV. “It’s years and years of being on the road and being two feet in front of cymbals and drums. So high frequencies, I can’t hear any more. I’ll be listening to people and they’ll tell me their names and I can’t hear any more.”

“It’s scary because my job is hearing,” he said. “[The future] is absolutely a worry of mine.”

McGrath is still currently touring and has live performances scheduled through the end of the year.
