John Mayer, Phil Lesh, Buddy Guy & Questlove Perform ‘Hoochie Coochie Man’ At 2005 Jammys: Pro-Shot Video
A decade before John Mayer went down a Grateful Dead wormhole that led to his joining Dead & Company, he teamed with GD bassist Phil Lesh, The Roots drummer Questlove and blues legend Buddy Guy for a performance at the 2005 Jammys. The once-in-a-lifetime quartet tackled “Hoochie Coochie Man” and Relix recently unveiled pro-shot video of the stellar collaboration.
The fifth annual Jammys took place on April 26, 2005 at the Theater At Madison Square Garden in New York City. Guy handled lead vocals on “Hoochie Coochie Man” and traded licks with Mayer. “Hoochie Coochie Man” was penned by Willie Dixon and first recorded by Muddy Waters, who recruited Guy to perform on his 1964 LP Muddy Waters: Folk Singer.
