John Mayer

-A.S. Thousands of girls screamed and four dudes standing right behind me held up a sign that read “Mucho man love for John Mayer,” as he took the stage for what was to be the Festival Crashers last show at Rothbury.

Mayer led the masses through “Bigger Than My Body,” and walked to each side of the stage for a couple of monster guitar solos. I walked back out of the photo pit to meet up with Zack in time for an excellent cover of George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord.” Mayer then played his first hit, “No Such Thing,” as the crowd screamed at the top of their lungs.johnmayer2

He kept that energy going with “Why Georgia and “Vultures.”Before his next song, Mayer clowned around a little bit about politics. Whereas many artists take a very straightforward approach, he opted for a more light-hearted approach.

He said now that we were going to have a new president, we could do more with time travel research and “spend billions of dollars to paint the swirling vortex black and white.” With that he launched into his political song about doing nothing, “Waiting on the World to Change.”

That's a mean playing face ya got there, John.

Mayer had been flashing his blues guitar chops all set, but they really came through on a solid cover of “Crossroads.” For his encore, Mayer led off with the Herbie Hancock collaborated tune, “Stitched Up.” To be honest, it lacked without Herbie’s piano in the mix. He sent the Festival Crashers home with “Gravity.”

    I’m especially pissed b/c I missed the Mike/Trey/Fishman “She Said, She Said.” He’s not that big a d.b. but it was a bad move. Andy had to take pictures and I thought Trey was done.
