The Blues genious the guitar riffs jam’ going in to the zone.
The band Bad Company speaks to all the greats that horned us with their presents and many talents if only for a short time. The song ‘You are a super star’ says it all
I feel like anybody who is against the building of an Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero isn’t contesting that they’re being intolerant, rather they’re arguing (however spuriously) that they’re being justifiably intolerant. It reminds me of another specious debate, “is waterboarding…
20 years ago today, the world lost one of the best guitar players of all time, Stevie Ray Vaughan. Stevie defined my love of blues music and my passion to spend as many waking hours as I could with a guitar in my hands. I never met him and I never saw him play live, but he changed my life forever. Stevie quite literally gave me a career in music. Today I’m not John Mayer the famous musician, I’m John, the kid from the Connecticut suburbs who discovered a style of music that spoke for me when nothing else did. And I post this in honor of both Stevie and the thousands of undiscovered guitar players who shut the doors to their rooms, dim the lights and play along to the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan and find their escape through a Fender Stratocaster. Please watch this man play “Texas Flood” from his 1983 performance at the El Macambo. Thank you Stevie.
Thank you all so much for making the Battle Studies tour such a huge success and a pleasure. I’m going to miss seeing your faces every night. Thanks for singing along. And for accepting me. You don’t know how good that feels. And thanks for the signs, the clever, funny, awesome signs. And for letting me play both my pop radio hits and a 15 minute long jam while giving it the same level of appreciation. Thanks for buying a ticket when money is tight, for waiting in traffic to both enter and leave the venue, and thank you for telling your dubious friends to come with you and see what this “Mayer” guy is all about. Thank you for being fans and thank you for giving me the awesome life I have.
Time to (try to) disappear for a while. Love you guys. A lot.
Ahh, Huffington Post, the internet Death Star. The world’s first spectator banking website. Come watch a site’s intelligence move in and out like bellows of accordion depending on whether or not there’s ad dollars to be sucked out of any willing orifice.

Listening to Train play “Hey Soul Sister” from backstage. What a massive hit. Yea, it’s on the radio pretty constantly, but a hit song is all about the way the crowd reacts to it. There’s nothing like the reward of making the air swirl around thousands of people with one of your songs. Better than… being number 1
Experimenting with the photo guestbook idea in my apartment. Myself and the great Jeffrey Ross… (need to up the F stop so focus won’t be such an issue.)

When your in the zone being creative and other wise that’s when ‘time fly’s by no worries just be careful of burning yourself out. As artist we are always wanting waiting, looking forward to the next new adventure to run after.
You and Zach look great hope he gets to ‘live his dreams too
