It’s only been a few months since legendary singer Paul Simon announced his hearing loss, and now he says he’s still coping.
Simon, who lost most of his hearing in his left ear, addressed this challenge during a question-and-answer session after the screening of the documentary “In Restless Dreams: The Music of Paul Simon” at the Toronto International Film Festival, according to the American “space” website. Hollywood Reporter.
“I haven’t fully accepted it, but I’m getting into it,” Simon reportedly said of his hearing loss while onstage with the film’s director, Alex Gibney.
Simon first stated that he was deaf in his left ear in an interview Times UK Back in May.
“Suddenly I lost most of the hearing in my left ear, and no one has an explanation for that,” he said at the time. “So everything became more difficult. My reaction to that was frustration and annoyance; I didn’t get angry yet, because I thought it would pass, it would sort itself out.”
As a result, performing live was a challenge.
While in Toronto, Simon said he still plays his guitar daily.
“It’s a tool that allows me to express myself creatively. But it’s also the place I go to for solace. If I’m feeling… ‘whatever,'” he said. “So it’s very important to me.” “You know, it happens,” he said. You have something when you have some kind of disability that changes your awareness or changes the way you interact with life.”
Simon first rose to musical fame in the 1960s as one half of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, before going on to have an award-winning career.
