by moderator

it's here!

some of the new features:

1. facebook connect!! log in to your benharper.com account FIRST, then connect to facebook. now you can invite friends to shows you're attending and post content from Ben Harper to Facebook!

2. we dug through the vaults and unearthed tons of new, unseen and rare photos, videos, set lists and more. help build the archive by logging in to post photos and videos from every album and show EVER!!!

3. new interactive community features! check out Relentless Axes, a monthly series where Ben will post one of his guitars and tell a story about it. then fans can upload their guitars and tell their stories, and the best will win cool prizes. Sneaker junkie? that's coming next... :)

4. playlists! click the LISTEN tab above to browse selections from the Ben Harper catalog, and create your own custom playlist. soon you'll be able to share it with your friends.

5. activism. get involved!!

Thanks to everyone for their support. If you find any kinks in the system, we'd be grateful to know!

cheers,

just dropping a quick line to say to hi to everyone i ran into on the Pearl Jam / Relentless7 tour. this could have been one of the best tours ever. for real!

anyway i got good footage from the shows, and we're planning on dropping some really cool stuff on the site to shake things up a bit.

i picked up a nasty cold bug on the road, so i am keeping this short. talk to you soon.

New R7 photos on tour with Pearl Jam

So you guys probably noticed that our Photo Gallery is back online. Weeee!

One of the biggest improvements over galleries past is the new interactivity. You can build a list of favorites, leave comments, and rate the photos.

I just uploaded a bunch of shots from the past few shows with Pearl Jam courtesy our nightly photographer, Melissa Nicholson. (She's also the merch girl.) There's a pretty sick one of Ben and Eddie doing "Indifference."

Speaking of Pearl Jam, "Backspacer" is badass.

c-ya,
