Rumors confirmed

The Police reunion is really going to happen, folks. They are slated to play at the Grammy Awards, and may be going on tour. I'm a bit worried, I mean, the Grammys (Grammies? whatever.) are so LAME! You're the frickin Police! King of Pain! So Lonely! Couldn't you have made your big comeback at the closing of CBGB or something, I don't know, a little edgier? What, are you hoping that John Mayer will jump up on stage and join you? (Ew. That thought almost made my head explode.)
On the other hand, there also exists the potential for huge amounts of awesomeness, and if they do come to Boston, I will most certainly buy a ticket.

Speaking of explode, I think Sting is the matter to John Mayer's antimatter.

No matter, I've been waiting 18 years for them to get back together. Now if only they'd broadcast their backstage spats as well...

I just hope theere aren't any lutes involved :)

I don't get it. What is so bad about John Mayer?

No American Express commercials?

eileen said...

You're kidding, right, Adam?

Mayer will never be forgiven for songs like Daughters:

"Fathers be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters too"

John Mayer has the same puffy-pasty thing going on as Vince Vaughn but nothing to redeem himself like the almost-sexy funny of Mr. VV.

Oh, and Mayer is dating Jessica Simpson, which sends them both into some kind of infinite spiral of suck.

Adam said...

Hmmm - well, there is no defending those lyrics, but I just appreciate his guitar playing circa 2004


As for his many crimes against the English language and rock music, I am willing to pass it off as temporary insanity based on a desire to make piles of money and date the ultimate American hottie.

Wait, I thought ScarJo was the ultimate American hottie.

Mayer's a lot more tolerable when he's not singing.
