Love him or hate him, there's no denying the unstoppable staying power of John Mayer. This dude has literally been running through the halls of our collective national high school and screaming at the top of his lungs since, I don't know, freshman year? Let's not even try to guess how many wall calendars have come and gone since then. And yeah, he's got seven Grammys under his belt, six full-length albums and about a bajillion hit singles that both old ladies and underdeveloped sensitive-boy types alike love shriek-singing along to. Not too shabby, considering how many times Mayer has put his foot in his mouth and nearly ended his career. But that's another rant for another day. In support of his latest effort, Paradise Valley, dates for the Born and Raised tour have been added, and tickets are still on sale. Better go check Mayer out before he checks you out ... and then blabs about checking you out to Rolling Stone, while drunk.
