Soul Man

It may be hard to believe, but John Mayer is a white guy suppressing his true soul music soul. Don’t believe us? Then check out these quotes from music czar, incredibly deep dude, and The Roots’ drummer Questlove, who wrote, produced, and performed on D’Angelo’s Voodoo. (An album, in our opinion, that’s one of the best of all-time.) “John Mayer is incredibly underrated. Ohmigod. Severely. His whole Abercrombie and Fitch, nice guy, moms love him, that’s whatever,” said Questlove in the August 2003 issue of The Believer. “He wants to do his Voodoo so bad it hurts.”
