HUEY LEWIS: Opens up about his hearing loss
Huey Lewis isn't letting his hearing loss get him down.
Lewis has Meniere's disease, an ailment that affects the inner ear and prompts vertigo and other disorienting symptoms.
On NBC's Today show Monday morning, he said, "I haven’t come to grips with the fact that I may never sing again. I’m still hoping I’m gonna get better. They say a positive attitude is important... I can do everything but what I love to do the most, which is a drag. I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again."
Lewis isn't the first singer to be told to stop performing due to hearing loss in recent years. AC/DC's Brian Johnson got a similar order a few years ago. And alternative rocker Ryan Adams spent a year away from music after being diagnosed with Meniere's, though he's made a full comeback.
PRINCE: Island estate headed to auction
Paisley Park is now a museum, but you still have a chance to hang your hat in one of Prince's homes.
The Artist's estate will auction off his private retreat in the Caribbean nation of Turks and Caicos on July 12th. The 10,000-square-foot estate has six bedrooms and six baths, with access to two private beaches. It also boasts a tennis court and 200-foot dock. The driveway is bright purple.
Premiere Estates Auction Company, which is overseeing the sale, has not released any guidance on how much it expects the property to sell for -- but if you really want to get an idea, you can arrange for a private tour. (People, Bravo)
