The Who Guitarist Walks Off stage

Pete leaves due to concert being "too loud".

Although they claimed the title of Loudest Band In The World in 1976, The Who guitarist Pete Townshend reportedly walked offstage at a recent gig in Sunrise, Florida, after he became angry with sound technicians. 

Townshend has had to deal with hearing problems since drummer Keith Moon blew up his drumkit on a TV show in 1967. He had expressed a possibility of retiring in recent years if his tinnitus proved too much of a problem, but has since found a monitoring system he is happy with.

Simon Townshend tweeted after the show: "Pete walked off tonight because it was too loud. Was a good show but had some technical problems."
