Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell has revealed that he had his vocal box removed during an operation on his vertebrae. Talking with the magazine Classic Rock, Farrell says the surgery required his voice box to be removed and set on a table as doctors replaced crushed discs with artificial ones. Farrell says that his original discs were damaged “mostly from partying and leaning back my head to rip out notes, and surfing and dancing around.” Don’t worry, the singer has also confirmed that new music has been recorded and more will be done in the future saying: “I wouldn’t think albums, I‘d think songs.” We could expect to hear that new music sometime soon in 2021.
