Ben Harper and friends Superjam

Had a big night downloading new concerts for John Butler and Ben Harper last night when I cam across something from this years Bonnaroo Festival. It's called the Superjam and it's the most amazing thing I have ever heard from Harper.

For those that don't know, Bonnaroo is the huge festival in Tennesse every year with hundreds of bands, and multiple stages. Harper, Butler, G-Love, Donovan Frankenreighter, The Roots, and many many more artists are there. I've never been, but hope to go one day.

Anyways, heres the deal. Ben Harper, John Paul Jones, and ?uestlove. ?uestlove is the drummer from the band The Roots, and John Paul Jones is from Led Zepplin. What a fucking combination. These got got on stage together and basically rocked out so hard to some of the all time classics. It really is a "superjam". I don't even have the words to describe how amazing this sounds. The talent is just amazing, and puts anything else from our current era to shame. No one should ever step on stage again without giving a shoutout to these guys for they're contribution to the world of music on this one. They are the very best at what they do.
