John Mayer

Throat Condition

Derails Album, Concerts

John Mayer is canceling two concerts and postponing his album until next year because he's having problems with his vocal cords.

Mayer revealed the problem on his blog, saying he had developed a granuloma in his throat.  Granulomas are nodules, and they vary from harmless to very serious. John didn't elaborate.

He was scheduled to perform at the iheartradio Music Festival in Las Vegas next week and a show with Tony Bennett in Los Angeles.

Mayer also said his next album, which was due later this year, will now be pushed back to 2012.

He says he'll devote his time to "writing and composing more music and kicking an empty soup can around the West Village."

Hope all is well.

That is really unfortunate. Vocalists with nodules usually end up requiring surgery and the recovery time can be lengthy. Really sorry to hear that :-(

Classic side effect of coke use. I believe Taylor Swift had to bow out for the first time of several performances for the same thing.

A granuloma is actually not the same thing as a nodule. He needs to possibly be treated for GERD & needs to see a speech pathologist ASAP.

John is very talented, just like Eric Clapton. I hope he gets well quick, his hair is very wavy just like Eric's.
