John Mayer's frustrating 2012 continues after the singer receives news that he won't be able to sing for another 6 months. Mayer took to Tumbler to share:

John Mayer had surgery on his vocal chords last October and had to go months without being able to sing afterwards. He attempted a comeback tour last spring to promoted his new album, Born and Raised, but had to cancel it after the problem flared up again. Well, it looks like John will have even longer to just focus on writing. Check out what he posted to Tumblr on August 29, 2012:

Well, here I am. Silent for the next few months, no singing for probably six, but all signs point to this being the last step in getting to perform again. Back to notebooks and iPad to communicate for the time being. Zen living at its finest... so if you see me out and about and I don't answer you when you say hello, I'm not ignoring you. Promise. I'll try and post more on here, but I've gotten really good at keeping my thoughts to myself and I don't exactly see anybody starving for my take on things. But it might be fun to offer some kind of window into this very odd and slightly beautiful time.

If you see John around town and he doesn't reply, you now know why. And it doesn't look like we're gonna get that interview any time soon. We'll keep ya posted!
