(Radio.com) John Mayer along with Bob Weir and other Grateful Dead members sat down with CBS Sunday Morning on June 12 to discuss the project that ended up surprising them all. What was meant to be a special series of fall 2015 shows has blossomed into a full summer 2016 tour.

The project initially attracted Mayer because he saw the potential to grow when playing with the other members onstage. "The reason I wanted to be in this band was to be able to interact with it live," Mayer said, according to a press release. "It would be what I imagine an actor saying, 'I really want to be in a scene with Pacino.'"

He continued, expressing how participating in Dead & Company had stretched him, "Oh man, I have so much more connection with my guitar now than I ever think I had. This solidifies musician over celebrity." Read more here.
