Surgery Silences Singer John Mayer for a Spell
From Denise Quan, CNN
LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Singer-songwriter John Mayer is recovering after having vocal cord surgery, his representative said Friday.
It was his second surgery to remove granuloma on his vocal cords, the representative said. Mayer had the first surgery last fall, as he was in production on his current album, “Born and Raised.” He scrapped a summer tour to recover.
On Wednesday, Mayer posted on his Tumblr page:
“Well, here I am. Silent for the next few months, no singing for probably six, but all signs point to this being the last step in getting to perform again. Back to notebooks and iPad to communicate for the time being. Zen living at its finest.”
The singer underwent surgery on Monday, the representative said.
