Bob Weir, Mickey Hart Respond to John Mayer’s Ad: “You’re one of us now”
Earlier today we told you about John Mayer's thoughful ad in Billboard Magazine thanking the Grateful Dead for changing his life in their 50 years of existence since the release of their debut album.
Now, a couple of Mayer's Dead & Company bandmates have chimed in on Mayer's gesture. For his part, Weir tweeted a thank you to his bandmate, noting that "it's a pleasure coloring in these pages with you." Mickey Hart took it a step further, officially inducting Mayer into the Dead family with a Facebook statement that read: "You're one of us now."
Take a look at both messages below.
