Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns spoke with Noel Mengel of the Courier Mail about his virus that has resulted in arthritis like swelling in his knees, rendering him barely mobile. Johns said, “Some days I can walk, other days I can’t. Some days I walk with a cane. I’ve still got this arthritis thing but other than that I’m all right.” As for how long he’ll suffer, Johns said, “All the doctors can tell me is to wait and be patient. At the moment we’re sitting around waiting for my knees to deflate.” The band’s new album, ‘Diorama’, is released on Sunday in their home country of Australia.
