    Default John Mayer - Panama

    I'm not much of a John Mayer fan but I just saw this for the first time. Not sure if this has been posted before (did a search but didn't see anything). If so, feel free to close this up mods.

    It's been posted before, but I'm sure everyone will be happy to say how much it sucks all over again.

    My bad...We'll just let this thread drop and die.

    I should've put it in the 'Random' thread just for those of us who hadn't seen it before.

    .......move on people, nothing to see here.

    In an "opposite" dictionary, under "David Lee Roth" you'd find "John Mayer."

    Just goes to show that you can give a talented guitarist a Frankenstrat and he can look like a basement dweller.

    There can be only one.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Note to performing artists all over the world outside of maybe Extreme.

    It is impossible to recreate the mojo that goes into a VH song. You along with countless cover bands may only get to 1/10th. Dave cannot be copied. Even though your guitarist may make the most fucked up face while playing guitar, he can't copy Eddie's personality. Your drummer surely can't copy Alex and mere mortals are incapable of producing the angelic harmonies courtesy of Mike. Even the current VH today can only partially get there due to Diamond Dave no longer being with us and Wolfgang just isn't Mike. If you choose Van Hagar, your singer most likely doesn't come close to Sammy's pipes.

    Just don't do.

    I dont' care if you are have received a 1000 jizz salute from Rolling Stone magazine. I don't care if your band is somehow in the RRHOF. I don't care if you bought a Frankie copy yet you can't tune Joe Boanamassa's guitar.

    It won't sound good. You wouldn't want VH covering one of your songs because a) their fans would hate it. b) it would sound like shit.

    Just leave it alone. We appreciate you trying to pay your respects but leave the crappy covers to cover bands across the world. If they see names acts butchering it, how can we convince our band mates to play VH?

    Thank you

    No it's not. Corey Glover can actually still wail unlike that guy.

    John's one of my favorite guitarists, probably in my top 5, but his VH cover is terrible. He's at home (and smokin') with blues and pop, but not VH. Still, I will say it was fun to see him play this live, and it got better later in the tour.

    That's bad.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    The guitar wasn't the worst part. Drums and vocals were just not there at all.
