Turn It Up!: John Mayer - Shadow Days (Music Video)
Good Morning! I'm starting today off with a song about acceptance of self. We all have past moments that we feel like we regret or that make us question the kind of people we are, but there comes a day when we come to accept that the past doesn't define us as long as we learn and grow from it. Eventually they're all just Shadow Days and John sings about this idea so beautifully.
I love the fact that John has made blues rock mainstream in the great tradition of Jonny Lang and BB King (among many others). I'm saddened that he won't be touring with his new country flavored album "Born And Raised" due to a throat condition that he needs surgery for, because watching him play, not just hearing him sing, but watching him play live is a phenomenal event. His guitar skills are sickening!
I'm just not sure about the long hair though. He looks a bit too much like Johnny Depp (not that that's a bad thing necessarily).
