In other words:

On Ben joining The Mixed Emotions: “When he first showed up to our rehearsal I was really impressed. I said to myself, ‘Now here’s someone who has got it all. The musical talent, good looks, and the personality.’ Well, he was cool with the band and joined right then and there.” — Chris Kamburoff, former Mixed Emotions band mate, Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars by Joe Milliken

  1. I am finishing ” Let’s Go! ” and I have enjoyed the read. I don’t know why I feel sad about Ben even though he lead an amazing life for the time he was here. I still feel a bit troubled about how publishing and what Ben did to create such incredible music. It has been an interesting ride but i must admit that I am not sure anyone knew him.
