Something happened last night in the hills of San Deigo. Something that can not even be compared to doves being released from their cage during a wedding ceremony. Something that involves the likes of Jesus and all his apostles. Something that to this day, will be burned in my heart and soul forever: John Mayer performed in front of thousands.
Now I would not call this a performance. I would call this a ceremony of light. When we arrived, I was taken back. Not just by the experience but by the fact that my seat was close enough to throw a lush garden of roses at him (yes, I would throw a rose at him, but one was not supplied, so he missed out).
Once the concert began, I mean, I thought him performing Crossroads was incomparable but I was wrong, so, so wrong. The moment he began a little song I hate called Mercy (performed by Duffy), I said "oh crap, here we go," but then something happened and I can not even describe it in words. The man, the myth, the legend did the guitar solo of all guitar solos. For about ten minutes, He continued to play the guitar while knelt on the ground. His guitar laying flat on the surface of the stage and his body hovering over it. Then, the unimaginable happened, he played with his head down and his fingers danced on the strings! Oh, it was pure sex. He had greats like Eric Clapton and Stevie Vaughn Ray on their knees last night.
This pictures sums it up...
Here is a video of last night that I found on youtube because I was in too much awe to record at this time....it is kind of blurry and far away but humor it. Let it bud into the flower it is because about a minute and a half in, he takes it down. When I find a better, I will repost, but this must be spread to the masses.
