the biz thing was a bit much, but this show was great regardless. Mayer's a slick motherfucker.

This was one of the worst shows I've been to. I walked out halfway through. The band sounded okay, but Mayer couldn't sell his songs (which i liked on the album) at all. Hearing the songs, you imagine a different guy. Mayer didn't sound so good and his banter and dance moves, he seemed very unnatural and phony. Like it was a stricted thing.

And his stage name is his porn name. (Middle name and street he grew up on.)

I'm surprised Stones Throw put this garbage out.

He just seems like he's shamelessly ripping off the sound without really contributing that much of a voice. Motown was built around powerful singers and a RIDICULOUS house band that no other label ever replicated. When I've listened to Hawthorne, I never really thought of him as any more than just a carbon copy. Your Easy Lovin' Ain't Pleasin' Nothin' is a catchy song, but everything else ive heard, not so much.

Guggenheim billed it as a performance piece and it was just an installation. Resultingly, the crowd simply waited for the "show" to start, limiting anyone's ability to freely explore the space (the ground floor was packed with indian-style seaters, and the balconies were lined with people holding onto their spots like grim death.

Hey ya'll we lost another one.......but I'm glad to have grown up with gangstarr as representatives of this music that has an incredible history.....hip hop is a book that wrote itself and GURU was definetly one of its main characters.....we are all getting older.....and GURU is one of the MCs that added a soundtrack to our lives in the 80's and 90's.......the NAMES,PLACES and FACES come to mind when I hear a GANGSTARR track.........I thank GOD that he allowed GURU to shine in his short time...........REST IN EVERLASTING PEACE GURU
