“The back surgeries hurt everything. Before the back surgeries, I was still trying to do shows, and that’s when some of you saw or heard of me collapsing on stage and finally stopping the tour in the UK. I couldn’t hit high notes because of back pain. Not a slight back pain. Pain that would bring you to your knees,” he wrote.
