    He's a lot different now than he was in the 90s. I've grown to really like the guy recently. Watch any interview from the past few years and you'll see what I mean.

    Also, I just hear Toto when I listen to his new song. Not a bad thing

    I like a lot of John Mayer's guitar playing, more so when he was a fender player everything from Gravity to bold as love. I also thought Paradise Valley and born and raised had some great acoustic vibe stuff.

    The tone in that clip reminds me of Clapton "pretending "a lot though.

    I'm glad that you're glad about my pleasure. I've certainly always longed for someone to care about how I feel. lmao

    No kidding ! He was doing the power stance, rolled sleeves on a sport coat, and aviators and everything!

    I think it’s a loving tribute to late 80’s Eric Clapton, which for someone John Mayer’s age would have been significant.

    I hear that he wanted to sound like Toto, but something's missing.

    And to give fair credit, he did it PERFECTLY. That video could have played on MTV in 1987 and no one would have known the difference.

    This is just "adult contemporary". So boring.
