On Thursday, Adams posted some notes about being sick on social media.
On Instagram, he shared a photo of himself with BBC Radio 2 host Jo Whiley, saying it was taken before his "body stopped working." And on Twitter, he joked that the zydeco musical genre "sounds INSANE when you're fighting off pneumonia."
