John Mayer To Take Indefinite Break From Touring

2012-03-09 by Jared Ponton STAFF | 38 Comments










John Mayer will no longer be performing live due to the return of a granuloma in his throat.

Instead, Mayer said he will soon begin writing and recording for his next album to follow
the upcoming Born and Raised, which will be released on May 22.

Bad news, but it doesn't seem to be hindering his ability to record music so this isn't too bad.

woah people still hate john mayer?

you obviously have never given him a chance beyond hearing "your body is a wonderland" a decade ago if you call yourself a music lover and don't at the very least respect him

Damn, he's a bit of a douche but he is a fantastic guitarist and has made some beautiful music in his time. Continuum is a very, very good album. Get well soon, John

John Mayer's voice is terrible. He should write and play the music while somebody else sings. His music = good. His voice = crap.

Since he can still play, he should just get other people to sing for an album. Or maybe just one person. Would be kinda cool, I think.

The man and the music are 2 different things. John Mayer is among the bestmainstream blues guitarists out there. He has made great music in the past. Hopefully he'll get better and fight this.

Blues? Don't make me laugh... He's plays pop music.

"Blues? Don't make me laugh... He's plays pop music."

Look it up, John Mayer wails at blues guitar. There's a good reason he played at Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Fest.
