Ben Harper is the shit
I'm taking some time off whining about how miserable I am without the love of my life. Today I'm listening to Ben Harper's Burn To Shine and Live from Mars. There are very few artists today that I really dig and he's one of them. Stylistically diverse and emotionally deep, he can wring the saddest and sweetest sounds from his slide guitar and his voice is equal parts Hendrix and Prince. He's basically everything that Lenny Kravitz purports to be but really isn't. In short he's the shit. Steal My Kisses, Please Bleed, Forgiven, Mama's Got A Girlfriend, Ground On Down...awesome! Listen, buy, see him. Just do it. You'll be glad you did.
