What do Bob Seger and TMD have in common?

I had a GREAT time at the Bob Seger concert last night, March 26, 2015, at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

What do Bob Seger and Temporomandibular Joint Disorders have in common? In my initial evaluation report sent to my patient’s doctors, I explain how TMD can cause muffled hearing, Phonophobia (sensitive to sound), or even hearing loss. The templated explanations include my seeing Bob Seger five nights in a row at Pine Knob as a teenager. I had muffled hearing by the sounds of five consecutive nights of great ROCK n ROLL! The tensor tympani muscle attaches to the ear drum with a purpose of torquing on it to protect it from loud noises. That muscle protected my eardrum and has allowed me to continue hearing Seger many times over the past 50 years.
