Dave Matthews.... John Mayer.

John Mayer....Dave Matthews.

They both suck , and I myself can't tell them apart.

Matthews is a just another phony anyways. Mr Enviromentalist. Mr. "I care MORE than you". Please. This is the same asshole who a few years back emptied hundreds of pounds of human fecal matter from his tour bus INTO the Chicago River. He thinks his shit is more biodegradable than anyone elses.

His fans are usually dweebs. Dorky dudes and ugly , hairy broads.

They are fantastic! Many African Americans aren't aware that DMB has black band members too. I have been to several concerts and have a lot of their CDs. Best band!!!!

Heck, they are majority black. Original lineup was 3/5 black.
