Ben recording with Charlie Musselwhite/Relentless7 & The Innocent Criminals

Yesterday, Charlie Musselwhite posted on facebook & twitter that he was in the studio with Ben & R7:

"In the The Village studio with Ben Harper & Relentless Seven #CharlieMusselwhite #BenHarper"

from Charlie's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CharlieMusselwhiteFanPage

& Twitter: https://twitter.com/musselwhiteharp/status/520954906044555264

& according to the media release about the Innocent Criminals reunion:

" Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals have decamped to a studio in Los Angeles to rehearse and record new music"

That quote came from here: http://rockwrite.blogspot.com/2014/10/ben-harper-innocent-criminals-set-... , here: http://thefillmore.com/ben-harper-the-innocent-criminals-set-to-reunite-... , & here: http://www.fmqb.com/article.asp?id=2848887

So hopefully we'll have new music from BHIC & BHR7 with Charlie Musselwhite to look forward to!!!
