Ten years ago this August I purchased John Mayer’s first official album: Room for Squares at a Cheltenham’s Virgin Megastore. Suffice to say Mayer’s lyrics changed my life and sparked my writing ambitions as a teenager. John Mayer is my Hero. He is still an endless source of inspiration and wisdom.
I was also quite fond of the shirt he worse on the album cover. I thought it was cute and nerdy and have wanted one like it. Several months ago I found a similar shirt in a charity shop made by Basler and wore it at this year’s Hay Festival when I went to see another hero of mine.
