First, I would like to apologize for my English...
I saw Ben Harper 6 times in the last 12 years. He is my favorite artist, I love his music. It his part of my everyday life.
I respect very much Ben's choices but I have to tell that I miss very much The Innocent Criminals. Every live they made together were such pieces of jewels... The feeling between them was incredible.
I saw 3 times Ben and R7, and I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed by the energy. Ben is always amazing but now I just see Ben… I used to thrill a lot watching Juan, Leon, Oliver… with R7 it is really not the same feeling, the guitarist seems not to be really there, even sometimes playing wrong notes.
I was hoping that Ben will be recording the new album with Charlie Musselwhite and The Innocent criminals but apparently tha’s not the case.
Is it definitively over ? Anybody knows if he will record a new album with the innocent criminals?
Last time I saw Ben was on Oct 1st 2012 in MOntreal. (An acoustic evening with Ben Harper), it was awesome. I had wait this acoustic live for the last 10 years !
