Good with words

Fear... distractions.... the efforts of a self-employed writer to pay the mortgage.... all that jazz.

Ben Harper

Have just discovered this new singer called Ben Harper. Well, he is new to me, but old on the touring circuit. He's supporting the Red Hot Chilli Peppers on their new tour and has just released a double album like they have.... except without any swearing I expect.

His is called 'Both Sides of the Gun' and features 2 discs with different perspectives on war. His last album was recorded with a gospel choir but he is a funky, afro'd guitar player and reminds me of Hendrix and Stevie Wonder.

Marvellous stuff and FAB Friday music!!!
