He's playing a PRS hollowbody now? Interesting
you gotta be incredibly naive if you think people aren't gonna criticize it from the get go
Lenny may be a standard, but I would never record a song about another man's wife.
BTW, I didn't care for the light weight tone.
Exactly what I've always thought. Great song, Mayer does a good job with it, but its weird (to me, anyway) to play a song written for another man's wife (unless you are Eric Clapton singing to Patty, right?)
lol - I think he realizes he will be criticized regardless - so he just does what he wants.
I think I like Mayer even more BECAUSE he does things that make him polarizing - I just don't think he gives a damn.
Me too. How many of us haven't played Wonderful Tonight to a girlfriend or partner at one time or another.I don't really see it that way. It's about the music, the emotion that it contains. I could personally care less about the origins of the song or who inspired it. Just my 2 cents on it.
