Guitarist John Mayer‘s social media use has been featured here in the past, as he’s not shy about sharing his thoughts on his Twitter account (@JohnMayer). This week’s Follow Friday selection just yesterday tweeted a link to a note he shared about joining Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart (along with Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti) in the recently formed Dead & Company. Here’s the tweet and accompanying Instagram (which you can follow Mayer on here) post on the subject of the new gig:
Looking back at these tweets, it appears Mayer certainly had some new musicial endeavors on the horizon this year.
As mentioned above, in the past we noted Mayer’s Twitter sharing, particularly a number of tweets he dispensed in August 2014 in which he declared his affinity for the Grateful Dead’s May 21, 1977 performance of “Scarlet Begonias” in Lakeland, Florida (which he misidentified as May 19, 1977 due to both shows being on the same Dick’s Picks).
Mayer also confirmed his collaboration with Weir during his stint as special guest host of The Late Late Show on CBS back in February. sharing this excited tweet.
Mayer will also drop the occasional missive regarding music, travel, food or a host of other things he encounters, often with a heavy dose of dry wit.
