Five Reasons Why Richard Marx & John Mayer Are Alike

May 11th, 2009 10:04am EDT
Marx/Mayer
Though Richard Marx got his big break in the late 1980's and John Mayer got his in early 2000's (nearly 15 years later), if we were able to do a 'quantum leap,' we could easily pop each man into one another's career. John would leap into 1987 (the year of Richard's self-titled debut album), and Richard's music career would begin in 2001 when John's hit making album "Room for Squares" was released. Surely, both men would still have great success and receive just as many accolades because their musicality is that amazing.

Check out five top reasons why these two gentlemen of music can ...

Ignoring Old Show-Business Rules, Rolling Stones Brightly 'Shine a Light'

April 4th, 2008 9:47am EDT
Shine a Light
(HollywoodChicago.com) – In The Beatles versus The Rolling Stones debate (which no one under 40 would have), I’m decidedly in the corner of the Fab Four. I do acknowledge, however, the sheer stamina and staying power of The Rolling Stones.

They are charismatic and charming at the same time and their history of powerful classic songs gives them a magic credibility few bands have attained. In their latest concert film – the Martin Scorsese-directed “Shine a Light” – they bring their best as they are right now despite qualifying for social security.

Jonny Lang
Ten years into his illustrious recording career, Jonny Lang has come to a point in which he’s decided he needs to do something different. The release of his upcoming A&M album Turn Around is bringing upon a new spiritual side to Jonny’s music and emphasizing his excellent musical talent as a singer-songwriter.

Jonny has a message for you. Sure, he's been in touch before, speaking often with his guitar in the language of deep blues and searing rock & roll. But Turn Around is different. The guitar is still there, whispering sometimes, occasionally even screaming. Now, though, it's just ...

John Mayer
From his acclaimed debut 'Room For Squares' in 2001, through 2003's 'Heavier Things,' to his most recent work with the John Mayer Trio, the guitarist, vocalist and songwriter has sold more than eight million albums and earned three Grammy Awards.

"As a songwriter, the Trio helped me focus on being more raw," he says. "As a guitar player, it helped me get a lot out of my system and get to a point somewhere between the Trio record and Room For Squares - and that's a really good place to be."

Over the past two years, Mayer's put in the time to get to that place. He famously toured an...
