Mayer Shares 2005 Grammy With Keys
Honest John says, "I'm still enough of a music lover to know when people get it right and when people get it wrong. Every once in a while I'll get a Grammy and I'll go, 'Yeah, I really thought that was a special moment that I had on tape,' but then other times I think other people should win it.
"I won Song of The Year for a song called Daughters... and Alicia Keys, who I love so much, was up against me with a song called If I Ain't Got You and she played at the Grammys, and I was like, 'This is the most amazing thing in the world.'
"I won and I didn't think I should because she had a better song."
The win haunted Mayer for years - until he got the chance to work with Keys and give her part of his Grammy trophy.
He adds, "She came over to my apartment and I said, 'There's something I've gotta give you,' and I took the Song of The Year Grammy and, with my brute, semi-drunk strength, removed the top half of the Grammy and gave it to her."
