John Mayer Recovering From Throat Surgery

Mayer back in April.

On Thursday, John Mayer took to his Tumblr to report that he'd just undergone surgery to remove the throat lesion β€” a granuloma just above the vocal cord β€” that forced him to cancel performances and postpone his upcoming album a month ago. "I am now on complete vocal rest for a month or more," he wrote. "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." [John Mayer via One Forty Plus]
