Sucks! This sounds like such a pain!

John Mayer was forced to postpone the release of his latest album, Born and Raised, after discovering a granuloma above his vocal cords, and took this blog yesterday to announce that he successfully underwent surgery to take care of the issue, and is now on complete vocal rest for the next month - and possibly longer!

He writes:

Hey all…

I wanted to give you an update on the granuloma just above my vocal cord. I had surgery this afternoon to remove it and am now on complete vocal rest for a month or more. 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.

sincere love

JM

P.S. thanks to those who sent birthday wishes, especially those who contributed to the Happy Birthday video… I streamed it to TV and let it run like a music playlist for the whole 30 minutes on my birthday. You’re the best.

Well, we have to give him credit for maintaining such a positive attitude during this setback!

But ultimately, we're happy to know that he understands that it's exactly just what it is - a setback - and with a little patience and R & R, he'll be back on his game and ready to release the new album!

Take care of yourself, John!

    IM PRETTY SURE THAT'S GODS WAY OF TELLING HIM TO STOP RUNNING HIS MOUTH WITH SUCH COCKY-NESS OR HE WILL SHUT HIM UP IN A WAY THAT REALLY HURTS…. (BY NOT BEING ABLE TO SING ANYMORE)….
    I THINK IT'S WORKING… I HAVENT HEARD HIM TALK SHIT ABOUT ANYONE OR ANYTHING IN AWHILE… I GUESS THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR HIM ACTING LIKE A CIVILIZED HUMAN BEING..

    haha! Thanks Ray2Ray. Exactly my thoughts. No wonder we had the pleasure of his silence for this long. How do we keep him from ever talking/singing again??

    Say what you will about him, he is talented. At least his voice doesn't effect his amazing guitar skills.

    From his look, he's either trying out for 2 and a half men, or seeing if Demi will hit on him:)

    Really common amongst vocalists. Glad he's taking a little trip for himself (shhhh on the trip), and thrilled that he's going to be grateful when he gets back to it; and he will. Don't sing too early, and don't push it right away. The voice is like a muscle, so build it up in stages as you would your body on a fitness regimen and then take care of it. Not too many gigs too close together. Figure out how many days between it needs to sound primo.
