I am almost freakishly obsessed with you. No, I am freakishly obsessed with you. It’s not normal and it feels so good too admit that haha. I guess you can call me crazy, but who isn’t? Not only do your lyrics help me from killing myself and keep me going on a regular basis, but the things i would do to you are unimaginable. How anyone could ever hate you, or think bad about you is beyond me. Everyone has their flaws. I guess I’m just using this to vent to you, because I’m waiting for the day where i get to talk to you in person. You are honestly the most good looking person I have ever laid eyes on. In fact, GOOD looking is an understatement. You are GREAT looking. Like many of the people are saying on here, you have helped me through some of the hardest times in my life. And what’s really cool about that is that you have no idea who I am. I hope you realize how many individual lives you impact. But, what I also love about your music is not just the lyrics, but your riffs and solos are out of this world. Your music cures my pains. All I have to do is listen to Gravity when I have a stomach ache, and BAM, it disappears. You are priceless, Mr. John Mayer. From what I see and what I know, your personality and humor are like no other. You are truly a gift from god. I LOVE you, John Mayer.
I just wanted to thank you so, so much more for bringing happiness and love to my life, and, accidentally, to my friends’ too. Thank you, because your songs
taught me that no matter what is happening to us, we will always have a second chance with the others, and especially with ourselves. His songs are not like other artists, which has no content. They make sense, and songs like ”Gravity” narrate our lives perfectly, bringing peace to our hearts and minds. You are so intelligent and yet so sensitive, it is simply fascinating. You’re family and friends are so lucky to having you around! I wish to meet someone like you one day, I understand perfectly without even knowing it, and that is as affectionate, intelligent and sincere as you. And, more importantly, I hope that one day you come to Brazil, so I can finally see you and feel like I’ve never felt. Love you so much John, and I am eternally grateful. And even if you never read this, I will remain this way.

Dear John Mayer, even though you are hollywood sees you as an asshole and even though you’ve said it yourself, I really don’t care; everyone has to live a little and screw up. Your music is amazing. It has saved me a ton of times when I just want to give up and crawl into a fetal position for the rest of my life. I’ve seen you twice in concert, once with my mom in Hartford and the other with my best friend at the Mohegan Sun. Your shows are different then the usual rockstar. First of all you ACTUALLY can play the guitar. I mean the stuff you play is crazy. I’ve tried to learn your stuff a bit and I constantly think how the hell did he come up with this? Also you came from playing your guitar in your room at 13, in ct which is kind of like me but who knows. Your lyrics too, very deep man. But I know you get compliments all the time, “You are you great” “You changed my life with you lyrics” but seriously you are one of my favorite people. Also you have a witty way with words, I could expand on that alittle more but I just put four words with w’s in a row and nothing can really compete with that. So keep being cool and next time you are in CT for a show make sure to be extra witty and play slow dancing in a burning room ;]
I haven’t been to a concert since New Kids on the Block when I was in Middle School. My husband took me, my 10 year old daughter, and 8 year old son to the Battle Studies concert at Red Rocks and it was amazing! The kids’ first experience at a concert will be hard to beat for sure. I didn’t want it to end. The next day it was back to work and life as usual, but luckily, we are able to replay our wonderful experience through ustream. Thanks so much for a wonderful, family memory!!
this is what i did today at work.
TUNE IN TOMORROW NIGHT! FUSE! 9/16! 7pm EST! A DIFFERENT SPIN WITH MARK HOPPUS!
Guests: John Mayer, Neon Trees (performance).
it’s gunna be a good one.
Don’t forget you can submit your own letter to John if you have something you want to say to him. Just click on the link up top.
I am blown away.
So as of ten minutes ago I had a terrible headache. Now, thanks to John Mayer I do not. No lie, I actually couldn’t handle any of my other ‘loud’ music, and decided to put on some (always welcome) John Mayer. His music is my medicine. So calming. So serene. So honest. I’m sitting here right now listening to Daughters (Live), and I’m telling you that there is nothing better than the sounds flowing from my headphones, strait into my ears right now. Nothing better than this, at a time like this. Thank you John, your music will always be there for me. It will always pick me up when I’m down. Always.
You were truly amazing tonight. As I’m sure you probably are every single time you perform. Last time I saw you you were amazing as well. You didn’t play a lot of my favorite songs, but hey, I still love the set list :) It seems so long ago that I saw the show… but it was only a few hours ago. I never wanted it to end. Even though my feet hurt a little. I didn’t want to go home. It was just too much fun. I loved singing along with you really loud and out of tune that it sounded like shouting. Haha. I also loved the drunk couples 2 rows in front of me. They were hilarious. So were you. I loveloveloved when you talked about your “guitar face” and when you posed for the camera pretending to be singing ‘normally’. I also loved when you talked about people calling you a douchebag and also what you said about appearances and people having a bunch of photos of themselves on their computer that they took themselves that all look the same. It’s. Just. So. True. I can list everything I loved about the show, but that would end up with me listing everything… So I’m just gonna say tonight was incredible, I loved everything, your crazy guitar skills are too much to handle, blahblahblhb. Thanks for the encore. Thanks for coming to the bay again. Come back soon. Hopefully I’ll have better seats. :)
PS. Cut your hair.
PPS. Jk I love you the way you are <3 Haha
I’ll post pictures and… other things I can remember in the morning.
One day soon I will blog about why I love John Mayer’s music so much. It will probably be a very, very rambling post going on and on which song I like best (all of them but particularly Crossroads and … oh, here we go already) and how brilliant he is; so be warned.
Tonight I am shattered and I know I have an early and long day ahead of me tomorrow so I shall leave it at this: JM is the only one who makes me think I can dance. If you knew me, you would comprehend the enormity of this statement.
Good night for now!
Dear John Mayer,
I should’ve written to you on day 2 because you’re also my crush. However, this is serious. Your music has helped me through so much. Whether its a break up, being in love, being happy in life, anything it’s been your words. I’ve seen you twice in concert-probably the best experiences ever. If I could meet you, well ;) hahaha-kidding (kind of) I would want to hear you sing and just have a conversation with you. About anything. You are a great musician. Everything that people say about you, they are just jealous because of how awesome you are. I’m gushing aren’t I? Well, in the end I love you and your music. Thank you for all you’ve done. You are an inspiration.
Ive been in US for two years and I had great moments here. But nothing compares at the 7 Battle Studies concerts I went to see. The last one I went to, you talked to me and my friend during the concert. It was like I was giving you a hug. I still cant believe it. You made me so happy. It was like a dream coming true. Thank you for sharing your wonderful songs with us, for being so passionate about your music and for being who you are. Im really proud of you.

Here’s the deal. I kind of love John Mayer. Kind of I guess isn’t the right term. I DO love John Mayer. He is amazing. He has pulled me through some real tough shit in my life. I don’t know where I would be if he wasn’t there for me. So, I get
kind ofreally pissed when people who don’t “get” him say shit.
I went to the gas station where this girl I know works on Friday. I had just gotten back from my trip to Michigan to see John Mayer the night before. She asked if I had the day off. So I told her no, usually I get Fridays off, but I traded it for Wednesday so I could go see John. She says “Oh, I don’t like him. He’s a dirty womanizer”. So I was pretty pissed off. It got me thinking about people and the way they perceive others.
Ok. So she called him that, and a lot of other people call him a womanizer, too. Why? The man is 32 years old. He’s single. What makes him a womanizer? He doesn’t sit there and date girls then turn around and trash talk them. (No, calling Jessica Simpson a sexual napalm is not trash talk). He doesn’t use them for sex and dump them. Why is John Mayer not allowed to attempt to find THE WOMAN that he is supposed to spend his life with, without getting called names? Aside from that, why is everyone so goddamn focused on that part of his life? How many girls has he dated this year? So why is that John Mayer does something that people want to say is “bad” (not that dating is bad, but they act like he’s dated everyone) and the whole world can’t seem to let that go. Everyone keeps bringing up that shit like he’s dated a different girl every single day in 2010. Get over it, people. Let the petit shit GO!
Comments in interviews that were taken out of context. Noone seems to want to forgive him for them. Instead you assholes make him feel like shit. Make him CRY for fucks sake. Make him feel like he has to apologize endlessly for speaking his mind. Make him think that he’s not allowed to say a mother-fucking thing. I get that he’s famous and all that, but why can’t he say anything without someone turning the shit around on him.
People really need to let the negative spin on what he does go. Why don’t they try to look at the good things he does. AKOG, for example. The Back to You Fund. There are so many good things he does. However, the people who don’t “get” him, or don’t like him choose to ignore that. When someone says to me shit like “He’s a douche”, “He’s a man-whore”, “He’s a racist”, he’s whatever. I want to hit them in the teeth. I want them to open their minds and give him a real chance. Put down your fucking People magazine, turn of TMZ and put a John Mayer cd in, Youtube some of his live videos, tell me that you don’t feel a real emotion coming from him. Tell me that you don’t like him. And if you honestly listen to his words, and you still don’t like him, fine, at least you gave him a shot. Maybe the next time some B.S. gets printed, you will stop to think for a minute that maybe it was a lie. Maybe you will not be so quick to degrade him. That’s all I ask. I’m not saying you have to like him. But please stop forming your opinions on John Mayer from media bullshit. Look into both sides of the story.
I’m one of JM fans from Jakarta, Indonesia. I’ve been waiting for him to come to my country since I was 12 (now I’m 22) and until now he never make a concert in Jakarta. I hope that JM would held a concert in my country.

So, I’ve seen you live a couple of times. Of course not as much as I really want to, but ya know, girl’s gotta eat, right? You’re pretty awesome from what I can see, and you just keep getting better. It’s amazing thinking back five years, and remembering the first time I fell for those looks and licks. I was just a baby. hah. Still am, I reckon. Anyway, if I ever met you, I have no idea what I would say. I’d probably just stand there, smilin’ like an idiot. At least you’d be amused with me. But man, just keep doin’ what you’re doin’, get laid a lot, and I will try to see you again soon. :)
