Where Aren't They Now: 59

Maddy has never heard music loud enough for her.

She can remember being very young and hearing white trash drive through her neighborhood, horrible music pumping from their shitty cars. She was attracted to the bass she could feel through her windows and started listening to her own music louder than her parents would have liked.

Eventually her tolerance to the music levels rose and she began looking for alternate sources for loud music. She hooked up with the white trash in the loud cars, bought heavy amplifiers when she moved out of her parents' house, attended any concert she could get tickets for and sat as near to the speakers as possible.

Doctors, of course, warn her that she will definitely lose her hearing this way. They figure she must have selective hearing.
