Doesn't John Mayer fall under the category of "Adult Alternative"? To be grouped with Jack Johnson, (current) Sting, Dave Matthews, and the like?

Blues and soft rock are so out of the question to describe this guy!!

I didn't like John Mayers' music before I knew about all his shenanigans. I don't think learning anything about him (either positive or negative) would change that.

And anyway The Beatles weren't so clean cut - they did drugs - and Leadbelly killed a man, and Michael Jackson was implicated in a scandal. I don't think that people like or dislike their music for those reasons. Both fans and critcis alike know the same thing. If a person doesn't like them they might bring it up, but I can't see making the correlation that that is the reason for not liking their music, maybe it's the reason for not liking them as a person. I can't agree with you that if it wasn't for his his bad public image he would be lauded as the next Beatles.
A rock or rhythym and blues band doing drugs? What? Yeah I think they would probaly catch more crap for NOT than for the latter. I get what your saying though, and while I have no doubt that it has no influence on your decision to not like his music. I dont think that thats the case for everyone who just simply doesn't like him. By the way the Beattles were just an over exaggeration to make a point. I hope you really didn't think I would ever compare Mayer to the Beattles or any legendary Blues artist for that matter. Point is for a lot of folks I'd be willing to bet with a different image his popularity would improve tremendously. For some it wouldn't but for some it would. Either way I doubt he's really all that worried about it to be honest.

I like John Mayer's writing and playing. I think of him more as a rock guy who ventures into blues from time to time, though.

John Mayer is not real blues. Robert Johnson is blues, John Mayer is who?

Well his guitar def has some SRV influence and such, but I think of blues from a lyrical and soul standpoint, and John Mayer is just commercial pop really with very vague/little meanings. Soo I'd say he is soft rock really. He's about as blues as John Mellancamp or Seal

If you have never REALLY listened to all of his music, I can understand what everyone is saying. But, if you have ever dedicated time to listening to Continuum in its entirety, than you will realize that his IS a blues guitarist, and a dang good one. And that album is proof. His other work is a bit more on the soft rock side, and his reputation precedes him, but regardless, he is more talented than most anyone else that I would hear on the radio.

I agree with Mayer being more Pop Rock as opposed to blues. I think he's shown occasional bursts of talent, but usually while playing with someone else. If he does have more talent than he shows, and he's made a decision to think of image more than music then that's his right.
