08.29.11 My son received the guitar slide

by Bobbie Lewkowski

My son Coleton will be 2 on Sept. 10th and the show in Marymoor Park was his 3rd time seeing Ben Harper. We've been to shows before, but the one Saturday night had a special vibe to it. I truly felt Ben connecting with the audience. He then went off the playlist and I knew he felt it too. After playing "Morning Yearning" he motioned to my son to come up. I couldn't believe it.!!! He was on my fiances shoulders and they hurried to the stage. Ben handed Coleton his guitar slide. It just topped an already amazing performance. It was a magical night that will be remembered forever. Thank you Ben!!

Be Careful Big B- I have found we become the things we judge most harshly...

1 Samuel 16:9
" for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance but the Lord looketh on the heart"

can't always believe what you hear on the news...

Liberty F-ing Mutual F-ing INSURANCE!!!?!?!?!?!?!

What the f...?!?!?!?!?!?!

I'm disappointed.

I know all the greats did it, from Led Zepplin to the Rolling Stones to the Beatles to the Doors...

I know you've got kids and bills and stuff to pay for...

But I didn't expect this from you.

Here's the worst thing about it: I could feel it at your last show. It was different. You played your 'hits'. You didn't play for the mega fan. You played for the mainstream fan. You made fans wait after the show to go backstage. You talked on stage... a lot (not that that alone is bad - just you never really did it before). The back-to-back shows I went to just felt... off. All of that is bad.

A LIBERTY MUTUAL INSURANCE COMMERCIAL is almost unforgivable. And Amen Omen, no less.

Come on! Noooo...

Man...

What's next?

Is it really all downhill from here?
