John Mayer, who was (or is) part of the Woodstock 50 lineup as a member of Dead & Company, spoke about the Woodstock drama during a recent appearance on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show Radio Andy. He said that he’s really not sure what’s going to happen, and made an apt Monty Python comparison:
“I know that I’m… I was on the bill to some extent, being in Dead & Company, but I’m as much of a spectator as anyone else is to this wildness. I was told it’s not happening, but every time I hear someone say like, well, there’s only one person still saying ‘No, it’s going to go.’ It reminds me of the scene in [Monty Python And The Holy Grail] where the knight is now missing the arm and the leg and he’s hopping up and down saying, ‘It’s just a flesh wound.’ If those guys end up going, I will go, but it seems to me now, ‘It’s just a flesh wound’ and blood is spurting everywhere.”
Aside from Dead & Company,the Woodstock 50 lineup is (or was) set to include Jay-Z, Chance The Rapper, The Killers, Santana, Cage The Elephant, Halsey, and a bunch of others.
