Earlier this month, during the Pollstar Live! conference, Jon Bon Jovi received the Milestone Award celebrating his band's 40th anniversary. During a question and answer session, which can be seen below, the singer addressed his recent vocal issues and the steps taken to correct them.
According to Jon: "I've had it become public knowledge now, but I've had major reconstructive surgery in my vocal cords, and I never had anything like this ever. So it's been a difficult road, but I found a doctor in Philadelphia who did something called a medialization, because one of my cords was literally atrophied. Sometimes people get nodules; that's a pretty common place. Sometimes deviated septums and things that they've done take its toll on the cords. The only thing that's ever been up my nose has been my finger. And so it was very difficult this last decade to have to contend with something that was out of my control, which was… the strong (vocal cord) was literally taking what was left of the weak one. So they put a plastic implant in it for the last almost two years now. I've been in this rehab, getting it back together, but I'm getting very close. Friday night was my first live performance in two years. The new record's done. So now I just wanna get back to two and a half hours a night, four nights a week, before I'm gonna go out there on the road for real. But I'm confident in my doctor."
