    Great sense of dynamics, especially on slide, and a great voice. Big fan here.

    His guitar tones kill me. Oh yes, and he's a fantastic singer and songwriter too.

    I think Ben Harper is the best "rock" performer (for want of a better description) currently out there and active. The Best. I can't think of another one I like more.

    I've been a fan since the beginning but haven't been that impressed with what he'd done since the Innocent Criminals disbanded.

    I love his slide playing, especially in "Sweet Nothing Serenade".
