John Mayer doesn't need to search for anything because he's got everything! He's been so successful in his field that even the younger, newer artists look up to him as an inspiration.
The American singer-songwriter opened up during this Rolling Stone interview about being the biggest musical influence to hitmakers Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes. The seven-time Grammy Award winner was completely overwhelmed by the revelation but still remained humble.
"I didn't see it coming. We don't realize that every five years a motherf***r is born into the world of music. I don't apply as much from the blues world to my music as I'd like to, but there's a lot to be applied from the blues world spiritually on this: Those guys are me. I looked up to Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. All my heroes were awesome to me, so there's a contract to make the new guys feel accepted," said John.
