(to paralyze Mayer's vocal cords and let them heal) hadn't fixed the problem brought on by stress on Mayer's voice from constant touring and performing, and a longtime struggle with acid-reflux exacerbated by poor diet and drinking. A more intense dose of Botox at UCLA. Mayer was left vocally paralyzed for months at a time, until he had a breakthrough and finally healed.
Mayer is now prepping a 40-city tour and able to sing again. He's hardly the only singer to find himself sidelined by injury. Both Lady Gaga and Morrissey have had to cancel tours recently. Did i make it through without a "Your Body Is a Wonderland" joke? Phew.
