    "Being a watch guy almost never equates to being a snob". In his case, perhaps it's just a coincidence.

      Ha! For what it's worth, I could not name one JM tune, nor could I even hum it.
      Just not interested?

        I have nothing against the chap. In fact, I cannot say I'd recognize his face or his music.
        However, some friends of mine wrote & recorded a (presumably tongue-in-cheek) song called "Standing on the Shoulders of the Carcass of John Mayer ":

        (Shameless plug for a really cool band who asked me to provide background vocal arrangements and vocal tracks on their upcoming release "Choose Your Own Damn Adventure." I wore an RGM in the studio for the first sessions...)

          But as a guitar player...

          ...he's really very good. But he's also got the ego to go with it.

          I mean, even when he's being "gracious"... BB's about ready to smack him.

              He Likes Sneakers, Too

              Music critics adore him. Women worship him. He makes barrels of money and donates a lot of it. He's funny and charming.

              I've known about his love of watches for years.

              I hate him.

                Sneakers? Now that is one thing I just don't get. What do you actually do with a sneaker collection? Do you wear them? Mount them in plastic display cases? Stash them away in bigger boxes? Are certain sizes more collectible?

                  He collects them?

                  If there's actually a market for them later, I suppose it is not any stranger than buying a bunch of kid's toys that never get taken out of their boxes.

                  Besides, if he has pots of cash and donates alot of it, I suppose he has to find some way he enjoys to dispose of the rest. Caint taykit witcher.

                    Google &quot;Sneaker Forum&quot;

                    Almost frightening the number of hits.

                        Good article, thanks for the link!
                        Too bad the "favorite timekeepers" pic gallery only showed a few rather well known pieces :(

                          This article was several years ago. Since then, he's narrowed his scope to "vintage Rolex."

                            Hey Tyler, here's another cool song (and very entertaining animated video) by the band for whom I recently wrote/recorded backing vocals. I thought you might dig Eric's crisp guitar work:
