John Mayer, Sob Rocker, Crying Now After Testing Positive for COVID, Missing Grateful Dead Fest in Mexico


He’s not Dead and Company, just Ill and not allowed company: John Mayer tested positive for COVID at the last minute and is missing a rock festival in Mexico with the former Grateful Dead.

We’re all waiting on the world to change.
