John Mayer recently took some time to appear on his pal Andy Cohen’s Radio Andy program, and it was a matter of time before the conversation made its way to the subject of Dead & Company.
The guitarist noted that he’s looking at an impending Dead & Company tour with a sense of optimism, but he and the band want to be sure it’s done safely.
“Look, there’s no reason to sort of be veiled about. If we can [tour] we definitely will,” Mayer told Cohen. “I don’t think anybody wants to put up another tour and take it down… It starts looking like ’22 is the only way you can really start booking stuff and be sure that you wouldn’t have to write that Instagram post that goes, ‘Guys, we really talked this over …’”
In his downtime, Mayer has also descended into the world of TikTok.

and I too, ME, and Jim, and many others been sayin’ same here, and defending, for now, many years, lol.
You don’t catch me on teen-garbage-boy-band-chicky-pop-sites, nor country sites, nor most any other sites. It is puzzling, how people bitch @ PHISH, and what’s left of the Dead iterations, Phil /Friends, Wolf Bros., and of course Dead and Co. relentlessly. The two (unarguable most popular by far, bands that head-up what makes JAM Band music) head-scratching.

If some people were not bitchin’ they wouldn’t talk at all.
Stay home. The lot will still fill up, beers will be flowing and laughs galore will fill the air.
There will plenty of us who will go and rock out and enjoy the synergy flowing around the venue and our bodies.
Bring it on!!

Thanks Jed. 🙂 I never understood the criticism. Welcome Dead and Company and thanks for creating happenings! Music is good and healing. There is nothing to criticize.

grateful for archive.org so i can dance every night. even if by some miracle i got vaccinated it’s been so long since i’ve been near other germy meat carcasses, i think i’ll stay isolated. We need to accept that needing to hang out with others is a moral failing. We need to be self-sufficient, isolated mindful of the enormous mountain of waste the vaccine thing is creating and recognize the futilioty. Mama Nature grows weary of growing trees so we can wipe out butts once on tp and shit can it instead of using a squirt bottle bidet.
