J is for Juxtaposition

John Mayer

I must’ve rewritten this 3 or 4 times. I feel torn about John Mayer, because I really do love his music, but it’s hard sometimes to separate the person from the musician. I think people handle fame in different ways, and I’m not always a fan of how he handles his. See: John in Borat swimsuit photos. On the other hand, he is crazy-good at the guitar, and he’s actually a pretty funny guy. See: following.

Kanye West and John Mayer recording Bittersweet:

An especially awesome remix of Chocolate Rain:

A fan focus group. I particularly love when he tells them that Richard Marx actually writes all his songs:

There’s a reason he makes guest appearances on every new album ever released. He’s crazy talented, his live performances are even better than his studio stuff, and he’s a great songwriter. Even if you don’t like John Mayer, I beg you to listen to this song, and tell me that he is not one of the best guitarists alive today.

“Gravity”, live at Abbey Road Studios (Skip to about 1:30 if you don’t want to hear him talk about the song)
