I saw Ben there a number of years ago when he had a suitably small band that centred around Ben's innovative Weissenbourne guitar. He uses that guitar more as a novelty now - more like a treat for the audience, which is why I won't go. His standard guitar playing is uninspiring.

I totally agree. His playing used to be awsome and drove the show. Now it seems like he's drifting off into Jack Johnson territory. Very middle of the road and very vanilla.

I want the old blowin' my mind, slide playin', weisenborn usin', politcially active and relevant Ben Harper back.

Right now he seems like he's trying to steal Eagle Eye Cherry's career.
