John Mayer: ‘I was silent for a month’


John Mayer has opened up about his month-long silence after a vocal chord injury.

The “Heartbreak Warfare” singer was forced to stay silent last year due to complications with granuloma.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Mayer said: “I did a lot of therapy, like anti-acid reflux, and it didn’t work, then I went on vocal rest. No alcohol. No spicy food. No talking.

“Most of September I wasn’t talking at all. I’d have a Bluetooth keyboard, and someone would have an iPad to read what I type. I had to point to menus at restaurants. People look at me like I’m crazy.”

The 34-year-old went on to reveal that the operation did not go to plan, and he has scheduled a second surgery.

In the same interview, the star admitted that former girlfriend Taylor Swift’s song ‘Dear John’ “humiliated” him upon its release.
