07.06.11 Concert in Toronto

by vekatoronto

Yesterday's concert in Toronto was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
Does anybody know who is the guitarrist playing on far left side of the stage (not Moz)?
I just want to thank him very much for helping me when I fainted during the show...
Unfortunately my husband and myself missed the very end, but it was really a blast!!!
Won't miss any other concert!!!!

06.28.11 10

by Big B

I know it's cliche - I know it's somewhat trite - but because Give Till It's Gone is Ben Harper's tenth (and final for this contract) Virgin record, I figured let's do a top 10 list. Why not? We're here - you and I - so let's take a moment and look back on BH's career. Plus, my pretty wife and I are going to the back-to-back Chicago shows - what better way to piss off the band before a show than to rank their artistic work...??? guh...

Let's rank his albums in reverse order leading to the best album he's ever released. Normally, I'd say 'good to bad', but because the man hasn't put out a 'bad' album (only Michael Jackson could do that - hardee har har), I won't. His tenth best album would be any other band's single greatest - their shining moment. For BH, it's another chronicle of music... at least that's what my ragged and rusty (and generally rummy - as in A LOT OF RUM) brain has to say about it.

Right or wrong, however heavy-handed or absolutely necessary this list is, good or bad (there I go again), here are Ben Harper's best albums in reverse order:

#10 - There Will Be A Light
Best songs: Where Could I Go, There Will Be A Light, Well Well Well more»

06.24.11 Is the UK out of favour?

by The Friendly Ghost

Aside from some appearances at Glastonbury, Hyde Park and alongside the RHCP's I can't recall Ben touring here in the UK as himslef as a headliner. There's no dates on the current tour (the UK is notably lacking flags).

I realise that Ben doesn't perhaps have the profile he has on the continent but when o when will we see him again??????
