John Mayer Talks About Playing The Grateful Dead's Songs
John Mayer wears his shades while grabbing dinner at Katsuya on Tuesday (April 12) in Hollywood.
The 38-year-old singer was seen dining with former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler.
John recently chatted with Forbes about playing The Grateful Dead‘s music on a tour with Dead & Company.
“You develop a new appreciation because you can sort of get into the head of the songwriter a little bit. And there really is no better way to sort of get into someone’s head as a musician than to trace, sort of connect the dots,” John said. “I think, for me, more than any one song, there’s a group of songs that I think are as good as any classic American song that you ever heard. So you find these absolute gems of songs that are every bit as good, if not better, than the songs that we hold on high as sort of the great American songbook catalog.”
