(Classic Rock) Sammy Hagar is fronting a campaign to warn teenagers about the dangers of hearing loss. The Red Rocker's been involved with the Starkey Hearing Foundation in the US for several years. And he's joined their Listen Carefully campaign to encourage teenagers to turn down the volume of their music to preserve their hearing.

He said this week on International Noise Awareness Day: "So many people are unaware of loud things: city traffic, buses, aeroplanes and you just ignore it. Kids don't care or don't think about it until it's gone."

The World Health Orginisation reported that 1.1billion people are at risk of permanent ear problems through listening to loud music, with 43 million people between the age of 12 and 35 currently living with hearing loss. Read more and watch Sammy's clip here.
