John Mayer Talks About His New CD, His Health, 50 Shades Of Grey, And His New Hat With Fallon

John Mayer sat in with The Roots band on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and also did an interview.

Mayer talked at length about his throat issues that are keeping him from singing. Although, he did sing a chapter of the "50 Shades Of Grey" book from his Kindle.

Fallon also brings up where when Mayer first came out as "Little Johnny Mayer" and talking about working with Eddie Vedder.

Mayer also says he will continue to wear his hat no matter what anyone says.  Guess since he can't sing, he is answering a lot of questions about the hat.

What do U think of the hat?-DocFB

We were playfully tweeting with a friend last week about No Doubt releasing their new CD in the Fall....of 2045. So when we heard they were setting a release date, I wasn't holding my breath. Big mistake! Huge!

No Doubt not only said the new CD will be released on September 25th, but also released studio footage of them recording "Push & Shove" a new song with Major Lazer and Busy Signal.

I feel like a little fan boy right now. Yes, I just squeeled after watching the video again.  Love seeing behind the scenes footage of stuff like this.

Since I was so late on this news, I think I might have to release a special unreleased remix of "Hollaback Girl" to make it up to the No Doubt fans.  Coming sooner than U think!

Finally, No Doubt's 6th studio CD is coming out September 25th!-DocFB

John Mayer was to start a new tour in promotion of his new CD, "Born And Raised" but he just revealed he has to cancel the tour for more vocal cord surgery.

Mayer had vocal cord surgery last year to remove granuloma that had grown on his throat.  After tour rehearsals Tuesday, John went to his doctor as something didn't/feel sound right to him.  The doctor revealed that the granuloma had grown back where it had healed.

John released a statement saying that he has to cancel the tour and does not know when he will be able to perform live again.  He will take an immediate break from touring and live performing.  He advised that this is having an emotional toll on him but still plans to release "Born And Raised" on May 22nd, and plans to write and record more new material.  In the future, he will have more vocal cord surgery, but did not announce a timetable for it.

Here is a portion of John's Statement:

Jane's Addiction have a new CD coming out and will be performing 2 shows in the L.A. area in October.

They will be playing John Anson Ford Theatre October 3rd & 4th.  They played the venue back in 1989 with a series of sold out shows when touring for "Nothing's Shocking" a now classic album.  Their new album is entitled "THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST" and will be released October 20th.

In ’89 we created a unique atmosphere at John Anson Ford. Back then it became a community and a party. Stephen Perkins even played drums in the parking lot for everyone as they entered the venue,” says Navarro. “Now we are going back to play this special LA venue and intend on making these shows just as unique.”


The band's latest song "Irresistable Force" is blowing up the alternative charts.  We are very happy to see Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, and Stephen Perkins doing their thing.

Never Shout Never Premiere New Video “Time Travel”

Never Shout Never debuted their new video "Time Travel" on AOL Music today.

The CD of the same name came out today and is on sale for $9.99.

Rolling Stone had this to say about the CD:

"Time Travel was produced by the musicians themselves, acting for the first time as a real band. And it shows. What follows is the sound of a fully realized, four-piece unit at their moment of self-discovery."

Never Shout Never is from Joplin, Mo and as you may have heard, the city was wiped out earlier this year by a tornado.  The band visited the aftermath of the tornado and you can see the footage HERE.

The band kicks off a nation-wide tour and you can find the dates below:
