John Mayer: Humans Aren't Meant to Travel Like Musicians Do

John Mayer goes shopping with some friends instead of attending the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday afternoon (November 24) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 36-year-old singer did a Q&A on his Tumblr page over the weekend and answered a question about being a touring musician.

“Great question. The answer is that fundamentally, humans aren’t meant to travel like musicians do,” John said. “At the core of it, it goes against the way people like to live, in communities, with rituals, with family. I think it’s a really difficult balance to strike between traveling for a living and making sure that you can get home and keep a normal life going. I’ve been saying lately, people only OD in hotel rooms. You never heard of someone ODing in a rental house in Hawaii, or on a couch by their dog.”
