The Black Eyed Peas Ripped off Alicia Keys and No One Noticed! 

It's obvious that musicians influence each other more easily today with social media and digital downloading than in previous decades.  It seems like hardly anyone has noticed that it seems like the Black Eyed Peas have actually borrowed some of their material from Alicia Keys, and if they haven't I think that you will agree that this is one HELL of a coincidence.

This is What Happens When You Call John Mayer 

It is the summer of 2004.  I am a new resident of a quaint tourist town in the center of Maryland known as Annapolis.  One night while playing my acoustic guitar down at the Kunta Kinte memorial statue, I met a group of eccentric, music loving people that would soon become my best friends of nap-town.  One thing united us even more than our love of music and that was our love of John Mayer.  John Mayer was still up and coming and wasn't yet a household name.

Originally a club  formed in 1972 and according to Alice, by being able to simply outdrink everyone else who wanted in, consisted of names like: Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and John Lennon.  The group was just a group of famous musicians who partied together.  Hard.
