Steve Jobs Called John Mayer ‘Out of Control’

The Rolling Stone Blog

 

Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of the late Apple co-founder, will hit stores on Monday. The book reveals
many of Jobs' personal and professional grievances, from predictable
beefs with Google, Microsoft and Intel to less obvious targets such as
Fox News, President Obama and John Mayer. Yes - John Mayer, the singer-songwriter.

In
a chapter about Jobs' favorite musicians, the tech visionary expressed
admiration for Mayer's skill as a guitarist but slammed the artist as
being "out of control" and in danger of "blowing it big time." The book
offers no explanation for Jobs' concerns, though he could have been
referring to the singer's oversharing about his porn obsession and
comments about having a "racist penis" early last year.
