John Mayer has stripped his music down to the bone by forming the brand-new Trio, reports Dawgnet. The trio consists of Mayer himself on vocals/guitar, drummer Steve Jordan (Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen) and bassist Pino Palladino (The Who, Jeff Beck). These guys have already released their first album "Try" which is a live documentation of the Trio's fall tour.
"The live record isn't John's next album," Jordan said. "It's the trio's first album."
The proper follow up to Mayer's 2003 Heavier Things will be released sometime next year. Mayer says that he is very excited about the trio idea.
"For me, Eric Clapton is the template. Make another band and go out with another band. And whatever the music is, follow it," Mayer said. Keep your eyes on the trio to do more amazing yet natural things in the future.
