i know im old and im easily confused on a saturday morning but when i saw 'Ben Harper' in the title i automatically assumed it was Robert Lindsay in BBC 'sitcom' [term used loosely] My Family...
I see. I make such mistakes myself while I'm still nodding off and half-asleep and trying to come back to the land of the living. In my daydreams I have Newton's brains and Penelope Cruz looks. Slowly, as the hard facts start to sink in and thrust upon myself, I begin to have some problems with reality, this annoying thing. Reality apart, I'm very good looking and smart. ; -)
When the BBC minor demons get out of your sleepy body, I hope you enjoy the beautiful cover and the thrilling song by Mr. Harper: he's delightful as a person, a very humble artist who gives his very best each and every concert, and is a very remarkable talent both as a great acoustic and slide guitar-player and as a singer. His vocals alternate between emotional bursts and very tender, angelic phrases and it seemed to be that this mix wound up being ideal for such a song as "Under Pressure".
I'm campaigning for Ben Harper. His new album is wonderful and I was really surprised by watching him cover a Queen song!
I urge you to invade the stores and buy all his cds, Queenzoners. He's a very good artist. Give Tori Amos a lot of support for this new tour too, if you have the chance, don't miss her concert by any means - she played at the Radio City Music Hall some days ago - on 13 August, to be precise - and there's hoping her tour will last a bit longer and encompass more countries than the last one. ; -)
