JM interviewed by Don Was.

‘I’m doing this because it’s my calling. Not because I’m here to show anybody anything.’

Where does one get that ginormous Christmas ornament thingy hanging there? Nice to see them out of their man cave aka the studio.

Ok. Damn. This is cool.

John Mayer and Don Was, 6/9/11.

SpongeBob gets photobombed by John Mayer and Don Was 6/9/11.
.What I’ve gathered: John Mayer is working on a new album tentatively titled “Born and Raised”, not to be confused with Gaga’s “Born This Way” or Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” or THE BEST “Born” album “Born to Run”.
The new music may be Dyanesque, lots of harmonica in the acoustic secret shows. Don Was is producing, Aaron Sterling is on drums and Chuck Leavell on piano/keyboards. ..and apparently
1. Ricky Van Veen is hanging out late at night in the studio with them taking photos.
2. Sometimes John just pops into the studio during his 10 mile run to discuss auto-tune.
.3. John may have given Don those shoes and Don may have let John borrow a hat or two. They maybe have contests about who can wear the funniest headgear.
.4. John is probably enjoying Jimi Hendrix’s spirit floating around Electric Lady Studios.
.5. I have heard some people say this tour may be referred to as “the gun show”
,.Songs that may or may not make the cut:
..1. Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey
. 2. Age of Worry. 3. Something Like Olivia. 4. Portable Heart. 5. A Break In The Clouds. 6. Born And Raised. 7. Queen of California. 8. It Takes A Fool. 9. A Face To Call Home. 10. Show Me Something I Can Be. 11. Shadow Days. 12. Love is a Verb.My two favorites so far are “Show Me Something I Can Be” and “Shadow Days”.

Remember kids, only mix electricity and water when you’re The Boss and/or Silvio Dante.


*In case some of you needed a cleansing from the John Mayer stuff :)

This is very funny to me—still. One year ago today, John Mayer gave me a twitter shout out and sang a song for me at about 3:05.

"On May 11, 2009, John Mayer talks to Mike Eldred from the Fender Custom Shop": Boy, do his eyes light up talking about the guitar he made. If it doesn’t work, just put it in the freezer!? I love the part starting about 5:30 when he talks about his childhood dream: "I was concerned about what color my signature model would be when I was a freshman in high school you know, eatin during detention".

GPOYGW Ibanez Steve Vai Jem Series guitar in Loch Ness Green. Thanks to the Ibanez Custom Shop. One of the first guitars I’ve ever pined for, as if it were brand new in 1989. FMLFTW

Nice. I’d love to see this Guitar Heroes exhibit at the Met: http://blog.metmuseum.org/guitarheroes/

Blood Brothers?

Just a few more observations.

John Mayer…………………………………..Bruce Springsteen
