To be quite honest with you, I've never been a big John Mayer supporter...I'm still not. I think he's an ass. His songwriting is getting better, but his real talent lay within his guitar playing. At any rate, out of those selected, I'd like to see him win this as well.

As long as the Flecktones win the two they are nominated for, I couldn't care any less about the rest of the awards.

The grammy's that get shown on TV are a joke anyways. The real worthwhile ones are the ones they don't even bother to show on TV, because they go to the true artists that actually deserve them.

His sense of humor can come off as arrogance. Especially if you aren't particularly a fan in the first place. I, myself am a fan, but I can see how it would seem arrogant.

You have no idea what you're talking about. I don't think he's great because I'm a girl. I think he's great because he IS great.

And mammas boy? Where did you even come up with that one? The label doesn't have to pay big bucks for blues icons to jam with him. They want to because he's that good. Period. The only damn shame is the people that hear Your Body Is A Wonderland and base his entire talent around that song. That would be about as fair as someone hearing I Did It and doing the same.

Every time I mention John Mayer in the list of artists I like, people cringe and say, Your Body Is a Wonderland guy???? He had to get started somewhere, and if it was on pop radio with a bunch of teen aged girls as fans, so what. At least he's breaking away now.

I normally don't either, but I'll be honest, what really turned me off about him is his dislike for DMB. :\

His dislike of DMB?? He's given Dave props in at least a couple interviews I've heard. Just because he made some jokes about them doesn't mean anything. He's also covered a couple songs.

3x5 actually sounds like a rip-off of two step. i thought he got a lot of his inspiration from seeing dmb live.

I've never heard him say DMB inspired him and I don't really agree it sounds like Two Step but I can see why you'd say that.

the 'girls' i was speaking of did not include you or at least it didnt cross my mind.
i am very aware of his new stuff. he simply is overrated...and yes the label does pay big bucks...if you really think otherwise i am sorry. blues icons dont jam with kids who think they are great out of the gate for free. its that simple. I think given the musical climate as of late, mayer has stood out, simply because what else is out there. if the kid is around in ten years filling venues then ill raise an eye. dont get so worked up just because others dont like the guy. there are people who travel this board with some musical knowledge and are very intitled to their opinion. i recently caught the direct TV thing...yikes...didnt see much i havnt seen before. answer me this:
how long have you been a fan?

You are entitled to your opinion but I am entitled to disagree and argue with it. Come on now, you know this routine from me by now. It's not personal, so don't take it that way.

You're just wrong. So very wrong. You think he only stands out because of what else is out there? That's absurd. If you think he's not good enough to stand his own with the legends that's one thing. I disagree with you there too but at least I can understand where you're coming from. 10 years from now he'll still be around and selling more than ever. I'd put money on that one. He might not be the likes of SVR but by the time his career is over, I'm betting he will be.

I've been a fan since the first moment I heard his first CD. I have 3 musical obsessions. DMB, Mayer and Ray. I know my music. ;)
