Quoting Benjamin

“I’m still a quiet guy. I like to keep my private life private. I remember we did one show in Chicago with Dickie Betts and the crowd was mean. They were throwing big ice cubes at us. I say, God bless ’em. They pay their money, they’re entitled to go wild. I don’t even care. I’m doing the work I’ve always wanted to do and I’m happy.” ~ Herald & Review, September 24, 1980

  1. Oh Ben, you were such an angel! The audience is throwing ice cubes and your just singing your little heart out, happy and care free. I bet they regret having done that now! Young Dummies who had no clue that the people who read this story would have given to be in their shoes that night!

  3. That comment says it all, doesn’t it dear Donna? That’s the difference between being a musician with a big heart and soul or one with a huge ego. Benjamin was of course the big hearted musician and so humble and that is such a typical comment by all accounts. Love this, thank you so much for sharing this ❤
