John Mayer: 'I Was Silent For A Month'
The Daughters singer was temporarily struck dumb as he prepared for surgery on his vocal cords in October (11) and reveals he had to cut out all his favourite foods and drink too.
He tells Rolling Stone, "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."
And his voiceless nightmare isn't over yet.
He explains, "I had Botox on my vocal cords, but I didn't get enough, so now I've got to do the surgery again."
