I agree on all counts. Just because John Mayer sucks is no reason not to check out Counting Crows. I'd go!

I can't speak for everyone, but I would never blindly say I didn't like a musician after only hearing their hits. I've heard his albums, and it's just not my thing. I find him bland and boring, and he sings like he has something stuck in his throat..

That you like him has no reflection on your music taste, chica. He's popular for a reason, and it's because alot of people really like his vibe. There's no problem there.

He's just such a....


One Dave Matthews/Sting wannabe is already one too many. I've heard his album, it stinks. It stinks real bad.

there are other factors involved, money, no car, and a two hour drive are keeping me from going other than the fact that i can't stand john mayer. but i really would consider not spending the money based on the fact that i may or may not be subjected to a shorter set and/or listening to john mayer (it all depends on who's on stage first). i've seen the counting crows twice, the first time was before i even liked them (on the tour with live), and seeing them live made me a fan. aside from duritz joining live on "the dolphin's cry" it was also really cool when live and galactic (the opening band) came out and did "hanginaround".

my mistake about the double billing vs. opening band thing...the way they've been advertising it here makes it sound like they're not touring as equals.

Pax....I am not afraid to say I rather see John Mayer than Counting Crows. I do not like the Counting Crows, and doubt I ever will. They are boring. Although I haven't heard Mayer album....I do like his singles. Does it mean I buy the album or pay to see him in But he has nice poppy songs on the radio.

Pap is good stuff

I think "Your Body is a Wonderland" is great stuff,... brilliant. A song you can bonk too. Mayer is a good guitar player even though I don't think his songs show it.

Counting Crows had a lot of poppy stuff on the radio but never stopped me from appreciating. I head they are really good live.
