Quote of the day

Via reader DA, singer/songwriter Paul Thorn:

I was listening to the radio the other day, and I’m a fan of John Mayer the way he sings and plays, and what bothers me is on his last single the pitch correction is so strong that he doesn’t sound like a man, he sounds like a singing Coke machine.

    I had to laugh. We own a vending company and I’ve seen plenty of scrolled messages, but apparently missed, out since I’ve never heard our Coke machines singing. Change is inevitable….unless it’s from a vending machine.

    John Mayer sings??? LOL. I am a big fan of his guitar playing. I have seen him several times in concert. I have the latest CD and no overtly apparent pitch correction was noticed by me. However, I wasn’t listening for it, I’ll have to give it a listen again this afternoon. I guess when I think of strong pitch correction I think of Cher’s Life After Love. LOL. What song of John Mayer’s are you referring to? Thanks.
