John Mayer Battle Studies Winter Tour Video

This video of JM is a favorite of mine. We first saw it on the Battle Studies Spring Tour 2010. He had it playing on the huge screen behind him during "Edge of Desire" - his last song of the night. It was a fitting end to the show.

I think it gives a look into his true personality. The “real” John Mayer if you will. It shows him doing what he loves most: playing music. Sure, he’s been in the tabloids a lot, he’s had many relationships, but I’d like to focus on his incredible talents - the reason he’s in the spotlight in the first place.  

This video shows him in a really down-to-earth way and he seems like the kind of guy I’d like to meet. And tour with. 

Be meeting you soon John.

Song of the Moment #3

Next Girl by The Black Keys is one of the most bad @ss songs I’ve ever heard. It’s such an incredible blues song, I’ve never heard anything else like it - besides other Black Keys songs! His voice is so soulful and the guitar riff is simple yet awesome! Combine it with the drums and BAM you’ve got Next Girl. I love his effects... I’ve got to find out what pedals he uses for that sound - it’s so cool!
This song is on my top 10 list of favorite blues songs.
If you love this song, here are more Black Keys songs I suggest:
She’s Long Gone (another amazing blues song!)
Howlin’ for You (yet another great blues song.)
Tighten Up (more of a rock song but no less amazing.)
