    I used to think he was a jerk, but he has aged well and now I think he's an interesting person and a heck of a player. He made that 8-string sound like an upright acoustic, while also making jazz look easy, impressive.

    Thank you.

    He’s grown up a helluva lot. And he’s come out of his silly and youthful stage a lot better than most.

    Think of the guy like a pro-athlete. It still makes me laugh that we take a 21 year old kid, straight out of school, who grew up average, let him immediately find stardom and fan worship, hand him millions of dollars, have super models and actresses throwing themselves at him, and expect him NOT to act like an asshat. C’mon. I know exactly what I’d have done with instant pop star or athletic fame and an unlimited bank account in my early 20’s. And it makes Mayer’s exploits look tame as hell.

    Dude is in his 40’s now. He’s not the same kid he was 15 or 20 years ago. People need to let that crap go.
