John Mayer "on complete vocal rest" after throat surgery
Singer-songwriter John Mayer is "on complete vocal rest for a month or more" after having surgery on his throat.
The 'Slow Dancing In A Burning Room' superstar explained to fans that he was forced to undergo an operation to remove a granuloma from just above his vocal chord, and wrote a message on his personal blog that explained he now needs to take time out to recover:
"It's been a very long process in waiting to see if time was an alternative to surgery, but even given two weeks' voice rest (along with many other approaches), there was no change for the better."
"I should be frustrated but I can't seem to stop thinking about beautiful things... I never thought I'd be wishing I could do what I love again; I stay in at night, picking guitar parts off of records and dreaming of playing on the big stage."
The only difference between now and when I was 18 is that now I have this beautiful, meaningful record waiting for me when I can sing it. Until then, I'm taking off. Going to travel the country, look and listen," he added.
