Christ actually 25 years exactly in three weeks or so. Was first time I saw Daltrey live too.
The John Mayer Trio from it's inception was Mayer, Palladino, and Steve Jordan on drums. Take any one of them out of it, and it ain't the Trio. Mayer has decided that his latest tour will have his own support acts, ie "him", like his 'Where The Light Is' show, where he opens the show as an accoustic set, then the blues Trio support band comes on, before the main show featuring the full band.
Funny how things go around. You know Palladino as The Who's bassist, I know him as John Mayer's bassist from the Continuum period, and the Trio, and then guess who played the famous fretless bass on Paul Young's #1 'Wherever I Lay My Hat'?
