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.

The best thing John Mayer could ever do for music would be to die.

I LOVED his music... until he made those bullshi- comments about black women. I can't even stand to hear him now. diss black women once, we are done with you forever. Ask Wesley Snipes and take a look at his straight to DVD movie career.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE SURGERY. I can make your nodules decrease and most likely disappear. Please not surgery. This could result in a paralyzed vocal fold. I help helped other singers with this problem.www.chrissellene.com

No big loss there. I can't even listen to his music in peace anymore, he's such a jackass.

Wow, get better soon. Hope it's not serious. I was especially looking forward to the Mayer, Bennett live collaboration as Bennett probably doesn't have much time left. Bennett really chose new, iconic, influential musicians of recent times who straddle old musical styles while moving music forward. Mayer has never been fond of his own singing voice and often just plays guitar when he really wants to fully express his esteem like when he played at the Michael Jackson tribute or recently when he accompanied Leon Russell on a Song for You and Leon got teary he was so moved. (Mayer has always been humble and respectful when being recognized by the many greats who have wanted to play with him). I hope he gets his voice back but at least we have his guitar brilliance.
