John Mayer Is A Pompous Jerk

Are you one of the millions of people out there who are totally addicted to Guitar Hero?  Or not even just addicted – are you someone who enjoys a round of Guitar Hero from time to time? (Yes, Dame.  I’m talking to you.)  Well, if you are, then you should know that John Mayer thinks you’re lazy.

He said to Rolling Stone, “Guitar Hero was devised to bring the guitar-playing experience to the masses without them having to put anything into it. And having done both, there’s nothing like really playing guitar. I mean, what would you rather drive, a Ferrari or one of those amusement-park cars on a track?”

See, this is where John Mayer forgets that he’s a gazillionaire who can afford to choose between an amusement park car or a Ferrari, whereas most Guitar Hero fans can only afford to NOT be total pretentious dillweeds. 

Suck it, John Mayer.  At least most Guitar Hero fans don’t look like this when they play:

    Wait…it’s different?!?! No way. I just thought guitar greats like Sir Paul and Eric Clapton were reallllllllllllllly good Playstation gamers.

    Who knew?

    Thanks John Mayer.

  • mlm

    The top 3 pictures make him look a little, um, “special” and the bottom 2 pictures make him look constipated.

  • Shannon

    That was my favorite part about John dating Jessica Simpson – she also makes the most disturbing faces while “performing.”

  • angry_broad

    I bet all of them are variations of his nut face.

    Just because John Mayer can drive a Ferrari, does that mean he doesn’t enjoy an amusement park ride every once-in-a-while? I love how in the article, he is compared and contrasted with the blues greats like B.B. King and Buddy Guy. He is a pretty good guitar player, but will NEVER have the soul and experiences that people like Buddy Guy had. He could never have had first-hand experience and learnings from people like Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, like B.B. King. Douche-bag… By the way, when he scrunches up his face like that, he looks like Renee Zellweger after eating something sour.

    If him & Jessica had stayed together… and had a kid… can you imagine the poor kid?!!! Probably wouldn’t be able to even talk or stand still without making faces

  • Wise

    I’m guessing it would look something like Joe Cocker in a constant phase of dry heaving.

  • Wise

    Did it just censor Joe Cocker?

  • Wise

    Yes, it did. For this reason I will misspell his name: Schmoe Schmocker. Replace the first ‘schm’ with a J and the second with a C.

    John Mayer is a little pecker.

    Sorry guys, I agree that john mayer can be a jerk, but I think he’s right on this one. Ive played guitar for about two years now and trust me it’s a lot more rewarding than pressing five plastic buttons over and over again. yeah, it’s a fun party game, ill give it that. but really, nothing compares to ACTUALLY playing a song, or just “getting” a guitar solo for the first time, or learning a sweet new technique on your real guitar. And don’t give people that crap about not being able to afford it. if you can afford a $150+ game system, and an $75+ game and plastic guitar, you can afford a real guitar. They sell fender squire strats for less than $200. And no you don’t always have to pay for lessons. There are about a billion free lesson websites for all of us who cant afford private lessons. Yeah, it takes patience. Youre not gonna sit down and be playing dragonforce in ten minutes. But ACTUALLY playing the solo in sweet child o mine, or the riff to woman by wolfmother is worth more than half an hour.

    Theres my two cents……im gonna get bashed, aren’t i?

  • Mockarena

    Jack – the only reason you might get bashed is because you’re commenting on a post that is over 6 months old. 🙂 Catch up! This is old news!

  • jack

    …ok

  • Matt

    Actually… Guitar Hero and RockBand are MORE expensive than buying a starter guitar, amp, headphones, tuner, and book on how to play. LEARN A REAL INSTRUMENT. John Mayer is pompous, but he’s absolutely right here. Guitar hero got lame when they recently keep trying to make it more like real guitar. Ahem, 5 buttons!! oorrr.. 21 frets on 6 diff strings, and hundreds of different styles on how to play them??

    Jerk Off! Why would he sell out like that for 10 million?
    Is he just a greedy money grubber? Back then he said he wouldn’t do anything other then music to earn money claiming celebs that sell out and/or do other things such as inventing stuff are sell outs, what a hypocrite he is worse!

    Of perhaps he is so resentful of her not wanting him.
