GP Writers Speak Out! Why Jimmy Leslie is stoked about his interview With Ben Harper and Relentless7
February 13, 2009
GP writer Jimmy Leslie on his cover story interview with Ben Harper and Relentless7....
"Ben Harper has put away the Innocent Criminals for the time being, and his new gang is hardcore by comparison. They cut their teeth in a Zeppelin tribute band, and they bring a similar thunder to White Lies for Dark Times. Harper sounds downright possessed—as if he’s tapped into the world’s current woes, and wrenched them out of an amped up Weissenborn lap slide. I witnessed Relentless7 rupture the roof a San Francisco club, and am psyched to interview Harper and second guitarist Jason Mozersky for GP’s August 2009 cover story."
