Ryan Adams almost gave up music

London: Singer Ryan Adams says he almost quit music after he was diagnosed with a hearing disorder two years ago.

The rocker announced a break from music after he was diagnosed with ear-ringing disease Meniere`s just over two years ago, and fans were shocked when he simply disappeared from the scene, reports contactmusic.com.

"I took a year with just figuring out how extensive the symptoms were and what was really happening in my body," he told New York Times.

The 36-year-old singer-songwriter also revealed that during his health hiatus, he almost gave up music altogether thanks to remarks from mean critics.

"It wasn`t because it was so hard to do what I was doing. It was because I`m doing this in a world where there are people I should not be listening to who are saying things like, `I wish you would stop making records`. There is a lot of hate out there for the dumbest reasons, and that`s really hard to deal with because I make records. I don`t make Styrofoam. I`m not like a commodities broker who`s like ripping people off on the side."
