There was a time when we seriously considered making a career out of following Ben Harper. Our plan was to sell grilled cheese sandwiches in his venues’ parking lots and publish our journal entries in Spin.

Bitter and in dire need of a penicillin shot, we ended up working for TransWorld. The end. Oh wait, back to the reason we’re really writing this post. The far less bitter and much more healthy writers at FOAM recently published a very candid interview with Ben. Here, he busts loose on fatherhood, never having writer’s block, and going instrumental.Thank you for visiting the Swell blog.
