Freeman (Benny the Jet Rodriguez - vocals/guitar)
SPB: Do you wear earplugs when you play? Why/why not?
Freeman: I do wear ear plugs. For a long time I used to wear construction headphones at practice and on stage. Once I saved up enough I bought custom noise canceling earplugs that helped level out noise for me. I've had hearing issues since I was a kid and from playing music for this long its only gotten worse. It got to the point where I can't hear myself sing at all through a PA system unless I wear them. I recommend every full-time musician get a pair of earplugs--this company Hearos make an affordable pair that fit comfortably.
