SuperDave Posted November 12, 2008 Share Posted November 12, 2008 Haven't seen this anywhere else on the forum but Ben Harper has a new band called Relentless 7 and on their website is a streamed version of John Paul Jones and Ben performing a great version of Good Times Bad Times from Bonnaroo in Tennessee in August 2007. First is the Billboard article about Ben's new band and below that is the link for his band's official website. GTBT will play automatically once the page appears. Enjoy. Ben Harper Rocks Out With New Band November 11, 2008 , 1:25 PM ET Jonathan Cohen, N.Y. Ben Harper is recording an album with a new band, Relentless7, and will play a handful of club shows next month to introduce the material. "White Lies for Dark Times" is due in May via Virgin and finds Harper backed by guitarist Jason Mozersky, drummer Jordan Richardson and bassist Jesse Ingalls, the latter two of the Los Angeles band Oliver Future. Relentless7's Web site is now streaming a ripping cover of Led Zeppelin's "Good Times, Bad Times" (which Harper played with Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and Roots drummer ?uestlove at Bonnaroo in 2007) and the original "Serve Your Soul," a riffy blast which fades out into piano and violin. The group debuted Oct. 29 during a Beastie Boys-led "get out the vote" show in Youngstown, Ohio, and will be back on the road starting Dec. 3 in Solana Beach, Calif. A Harper spokesperson says the artist's longtime band, the Innocent Criminals, has not broken up and that Harper simply wanted to try something different this time around. His last album, 2007's "Lifeline," has sold 173,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Here are Relentless7's tour dates: Dec. 3: Solana Beach, Calif. (Belly Up Tavern) Dec. 4: Los Angeles (Spaceland) Dec. 5: Los Angeles (the Mint) Dec. 7: Santa Cruz, Calif. (the Catalyst) Dec. 8: San Francisco (the Independent) http://www.relentless7.com/ What do you think of the performance of this version? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
