DE­TAILS of Troy Cas­sarDa­ley’s re­cent throat surgery have been re­vealed in a post on his web­site on Mon­day. ‘‘Troy no­ticed a re­duc­tion in his vo­cal range while tour­ing his award-win­ning al­bum Home and was di­ag­nosed with a nod­ule and sev­eral se­ri­ous vo­cal chord rup­tures,’’ it says. ‘‘Troy un­der­went vo­cal surgery in Bos­ton, US, by world-renowned la­ryn­geal sur­geon, Dr Steven Zei­t­els, sur­geon to Adele, Keith Ur­ban, Steve Tyler, John Mayer, Roger Dal­trey and Lionel Richie. Troy is cur­rently back in Bos­ton re­ceiv­ing fur­ther surgery and treat­ment. Al­though on com­plete vo­cal rest for six more weeks, the di­ag­no­sis is good and Troy is look­ing for­ward to per­form­ing with the Queens­land Pops Orches­tra for the Queens­land (Mu­sic) Fes­ti­val in July and tour­ing with mate Adam Harvey through­out the rest of the year per­form­ing songs from their new al­bum, The Great Coun­try Song­book.’’ The post ended with a comment from Cas­sar-Da­ley: ‘‘I love my job as a singer so much. This at first came as a sur­prise and I was scared at the start of how it would all un­fold but hav­ing Dr Steven Zi­e­tels in my cor­ner took all the worry away. Also the great ad­vice from Keith Ur­ban about the re­cov­ery process was in­valu­able to me and I want to thank Lau­rel, my wife, and my beau­ti­ful kids for putting up with liv­ing with Mar­cel Marceau for the past month!! I can’t wait to get on the road with Adam Harvey and play! Re­gards Troy.’’
