What Sucks...Rolling Stone


Putting John Mayer on the cover of your "New Guitar Gods" issue?

Is this one of those curveball things magazine throw at you every once in a while, right? It's like when Playboy puts Jessica Alba on the cover, but there's no naked Jessica Alba pictures inside...right?

The guy who wrote "Your Body Is A Wonderland" is a guitar god? Is this the ironic issue?

..hilarious....i agree. i was watching vh1 the other day and they had a show on with real guitar players...mayer wasn't one of them.

I know it seems crazy, but if Budy Guy says he's a god then I'm praying. I thought it was a joke too, until I heard his blues.

but if you put away your preconceived notions of mayer... he's actually a fantastic guitar player/writer.

What is with Rolling Stones list of 100 greatest guitarists, Kurt Colbain, The Edge from U2, give me a break. Where is Joe Satriani and Yngwie Malmsteen. And why is Van Halen ranked # 70, those rolling stone bastards!

im coming late to this, and i have a similar disdain for mayers girlie pop style, but there's no doubt the man is a nasty fuckin guitarist with chops for days - saw some footage of him on a jam, the boy is sick... i think he might just be a rubbish composer

Actually i give a listening to some songs from this guy and he has nothing special to display-yes rolling stones "sucks",hey dudes think about it they gave number of the beast and shout at the devil 2/5 stars and now they are eating their pants.Dont get me a wrong but i remember a funny review when an album from def leppard,slang,came out and it was pop rock,modern rock and innovative the style which rolling stone mag easily would approved and praised back in 1996 but its funny to see that they give it 2/5 and the hardcore metalhammer 4.5/5.Sorry but this magasine is just for your money and its worst than mtv,it digs good albums and artists and next persuade the reader not to give em a try

- First: I don't f**king care about Obama, I'm Spanish and yes, they bash Spanish right-wingers too. If I wanted to read about politics I would buy "Politics magazine" not "Rolling Stone".

- Second: They have their untouchable bands. The Rolling stones could make an album with Keith Richards playing a farting machine and Mick Jagger puking instead of singing and it would reach a 5.0/5.0 rating

- Third: Everything is biased. If they make a list of the best guitarists ever they put their "proteges" on it. Kurt Cobain #12? Better than Guthrie Govan, Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert, Stanley Jordan, Andy Timmons...? I think every guitarist who is not a f**king junkie can be better than Kurt Cobain or Jack White.

He's really a guitar god! F*** off. Do these idiots realize that there are millions of guitarists that play the blues, and at least 250,000 play it very well. So, Jon Mayer is better than these 250,000 because he's a cute white boy whom they can sell to their culture whore audience. Remember Alicia Keys? They treated her like a freak of nature because she could play the piano...Wow, a musician who's a musician, what a crazy idea! Oh. she's black and a woman! It's like Rolling Stone hits you over the head with back handed prejudice. It's like they're saying "look, they're not all ignorant inner city hip-hoppers" this one can play a Pee-An-O. If I was Alicia Keys I would scream "Yeah, I can play the piano mutherf^cker, stop treating me like a literate slave"
