Slipknot’s Jay Weinberg Opens Up About Hearing Loss

Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg has recorded a public service announcement about hearing loss with the Hearing Health Foundation.

In the four-minute clip, Weinberg explains that as a teen, he lost all high-end frequencies in his hearing after jamming with some friends.

He said, “So I learned really quickly, at a young age, that hearing protection is an absolute must if you want any sort of longevity and sustainability in playing music. So ever since that day, I’ve never sat down at a kit and played the way I play without hearing protection — not even once.”
