Just making sure I didn't need to kick any ass in this thread...

S|aney, for a long time I thought I was the only John Mayer fan in all of Interland. I actually saw him in concert last summer. Some people think this should disqualify me from being a moderator (not to name any names, ::coughcoughcougheadsonstickshackhack:: of course), but I think he's quite talented and has seemed in interviews to display a refreshing lack of ego. He played a guitar solo during "Come Back to Bed" when I saw him live that was actually, dare I say it, Stevie Ray Vaughan-esque, who we all know was no slouch with a guitar.

Thanks paxetaurora!

The funny thing is, that everybody here puts him down and they haven't even heard the new album. I guess he has more appeal to musician/songwriters. I actually started listening to him a couple years ago when Elton John kept raving about how incredible John Mayer's songwriting abilities are and what a humble guy he is.

John Mayer has actually said that the reason he pursued music was due to Stevi Ray Vaughn's influence on him. As a matter of fact, I just saw John on Austin City Limits recently and he was peforming with Double Trouble (Stevie Ray's old band) and Buddy Guy.

John Mayer is one badass songwriter.

Insecurity blows

I know it's hard to admit that I'm right, but just face it, John Mayer is the king of all songwriters at this point in time. I know it's hard to admit that you're wrong, but just embrace your defeat.

I know that it's hard to look past U2. Yes, I admit it. They are the master of all songwriting, but you need to venture out once in a while. I know it's hard for all you non-musicians to grasp the concept that there are other legitimate songwriters out there, but please try to keep up.

Let's start with the obvious. John Mayer is heavily influenced by blues (Mostly Stevie Ray Vaughn, the true God who most of you should bow down to right now and worship) and jazz. He has managed to fuse both of these genres together to create a new kind of pop music.

By now I've lost most of you because you have ADD, but I will press on. John Mayer brings a fresh experience to the palate of music and the written word. In a society where self-pity and depression seem to rein over the populous, John rises above it all to give us positive voice. His lyrics inspire and challenge us to be a better person.

I'm tired of boring lyrics and music that refuses to challenge the working musician. It's really getting old!

If you hate John Mayer, then you are an insecure asshole. I know it's hard for you to admit that I'm right, but I am.

Get over it!*

Im glad you enjoy his music so much, continue to do that, but as for the statment made above I disagree.
I find John Mayer boring, and an average songwriter. But what do I know?
