A Great Night Of Rock And Roll

This past weekend I went to a John Mayer concert. I had never seen him before but was very impressed with his guitar playing. After I purchased my tickets weeks ago an interview with John Mayer appeared in Playboy magazine. His remarks were very controversial and he's been doing damage control ever since. I went to the concert thinking "I hope he just focuses on the music and doesn't talk trash". He did exactly what I wanted. After a very energetic and impressive opening set by Michael Franti and Spearhead, John Mayer hit the stage. He, too, provided a strong set full of great songs and searing guitar work. The arena had more teenyboppers than I am used to seeing, but after hearing John Mayer live, and being totally into his guitar solos, I can see why he can hang out with the likes of Eric Clapton, B.B. King, and Buddy Guy. All in all it was a great show and I look forward to seeing John Mayer again this summer at the Crossroads Festival in Chicago.

Glad you enjoyed the concert Michael. My friend Lonn is good friends with Michael Franti, and it's great that he is getting some mainstream attention for his music after all of these years.
