That’s the allegation, anyway.
A 52 year-old London man “stabbed himself to death” after being driven over the edge by the ringing in his ears that he said came on after going to a Them Crooked Vultures show. Sleep became impossible and he just couldn’t take it anymore.
An inquest is currently being held into the death of Robert McIndoe. From my reading of the story, this seems more like a case of doctors botching his treatment rather than the fault of the band. Still, kids, remember to protect your hearing. Once it’s buggered, it’s buggered.
