Many people refuse to accept John Mayer as a serious artist. These people might describe him as an idolized, pre-teen heartthrob making millions off simple pop tunes. Don’t forget his flings with superstars Taylor Swift, Jennifer Anniston and Jessica Simpson, or that in a Playboy interview he did not help his case by referring to Simpson as “sexual napalm” in addition to dropping the “N” word.
Rock and roll stalwart Neil Young apparently found inspiration for his new album, Fork In The Road, in the garage. Yes, from his car. I was about to applaud Young for still being around to make music at all, but the fact is, an album about a love affair with a car is enthralling for very few.
