The Associated Press reports that John Mayer has come to the defense of members of the Grateful Dead, whom he'll be joining on tour this fall, for regrouping after the legendary band played what were billed as their final shows this summer. Mayer said, "I don't know of any Deadhead in the world who said, 'When I paid my money, I paid to see these guys finish this." The singer-songwriter is currently rehearsing for the trek in the Bay Area with three of the four surviving Grateful Dead members, guitarist and singer Bob Weir and percussionists Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. The assembled crew will tour this fall under the name Dead & Company.
