American Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and guitarist.
John Mayer
Jessica is a lovely woman, and I'm glad to be with her.
Mayer quotes
Sheryl's heroes are in black and white photos, and so are mine.
Mayer
No musician is indifferent to the public's perception of him, but the exuberant, logorrheic Mayer takes self-awareness to new postmodern heights. Like a football player providing color commentary on his own career, he muses constantly on his own abilities and his place in the taxonomy of pop.




Mayer John quotes
Sexually it was crazy. Thats all Ill say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm.
Mayer John
It was so frightening at the time to be seventeen and have heart monitors hooked up to you. That was the moment the songwriter in me was born. I discovered a whole other side of me. I came home that night and started writing lyrics. I discovered it all at once: It was like opening up a lockbox, and inside was a depth that I didn't even know I had as a person, or a writer incredible creativity and vision and neurosis, complete neurosis. They all go together in a package.
John Mayer quotes
Sometimes it feels like my life is just one long day.
John Mayer
John wanted to take it in more of a pop direction than I did. It was like a marriage that we both knew would go bad once we started touring.
Mayer John quotes
You know, the dude is a real musician. It's like anything you ever loved in Joe Jackson or anything you ever loved in any '70s rock. You're gonna get it out of this dude. He's a real student, and it comes through in his music.
Mayer
I have realized that you can use a fork as a spoon if you use it rapidly enough.
Mayer John
Neither punk nor prom king, Mayer was a tall kid from Connecticut, driving on the freeways, chasing slippery techno women, inhabiting a world of parents and slipcovers and holidays and gracious Southeastern metropolises; he was smart, inquisitive, articulate, a touch off in places.
John Mayer
He was over at my house every day between fifth grade and eighth grade.




John Mayer quotes
The first thing I said was a question: Does this really come from the family? I think that was essential to me sort of processing the honor. And when I found out that, in fact, it had, it took me about 48 hours to sort of strike the balance in how I was going to approach being -- you know, being invited to this unbelievable event without actually having the proximity to Michael Jackson personally. I'd never met him.
John Mayer
If you told me I was going to live to 240, I would take 10 years off and try and act. I don't have that kind of time, so I'd much rather stick to playing guitar.
Mayer quotes
I'm good. I'm fierce. And I'm not some gaming overachiever. I just have a skill. I was born to kill bionically augmented men.
Mayer John
There's a real self-serving element to hip-hop that threatens its life span.
Mayer John quotes
I won't ever get on stage at a comedy club when people know about it.
John Mayer
Someone asked me the other day, What does it feel like now to have a hood pass? And by the way, its sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, I cant really have a hood pass. Ive never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, Were full.
John Mayer quotes
I love the Grammy nominations this year. Anybody who really loves what they do got rewarded for it. It's not a death match between Ray Charles and Jessica Simpson.
John Mayer
If you have to tell someone how bad you want it, then you haven't shown them how hard you already work for it.
Mayer John
What song do I hate? I think "Daughters," by John Mayer, would be a good candidate. I don't know why he bugs me so bad.
