John Mayer Says...

"[My fans] are probably the people who had to bounce around to a couple different lunch tables before they found one they could sit at. Not because they were strange, but because they were just a little ahead of their time. And I'm onstage being paid to tell them, 'It's OK, I'm with you.'"
