I was never a huge fan of John Mayer until he became the new Jerry Garcia. I knew he was a great guitarist, but I just never thought I’d be in his target audience and for the most part, I am not. At each of the several Dead & Company shows I’ve attended, I’ve heard someone being very negative about the presence of Mayer in the band on the way in and effusively singing his praises on the way out. Indeed, when that project first started, I viewed it as a curiosity, but like so many Dead side projects and incarnations, it works out pretty well. So now I find myself listening to old John Mayer albums to see what I missed and never gave a chance to, of which there is plenty of quality material.
