John Mayer bought a guitar with the money he earned at his post-graduation gas station gig. It was 1998 and after only two semesters, Mayer dropped out of Boston's Berklee College of Music and made his wayto Atlanta to play the clubs and self-release his first album Inside Wants Out.
Mayer partnered with legends of several genres, making guest appearances on albums by Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, and B.B. King, while touring alongside jazz icon Herbie Hancock. Mayer also retained enough pop/rock foundation to continue his reign of the charts, making him one of the decade's most popular songwriters. In 2000, performances at South by Southwest landed him a contract with Aware/Columbia and a year later he was climbing the Billboard charts with Room For Squares and the single "No Such Thing."
