John Mayer is Thinking about Beautiful Things after Throat Surgery

By on October 24, 2011

John Mayer is recovering from throat surgery to remove an inflamed growth known as  granuloma from just above his vocal cord. , The Grammy-winning performer wrote about his surgery on his site saying:

…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.


Mayer had to cancel a number of scheduled concerts, including an appearance with Tony Bennett in Los Angeles, and he pushed back the release of his new album to 2012.
