EEGregBenrecordingRegarding the recording of Move Like This: “It was hard not having Ben around. There were many, many times when we all missed him. I remember when we used to do background vocals, for instance – and it was usually Ben, Greg and myself standing around a mic – so during those times on this record when we did background parts, it felt very strange not to have Ben there. There are so many other things, too – his sense of humor, his bass playing… He was just a great guy. Everything about him, everything he did…it was all missed.” — Elliot Easton, musicradar.com, April 18, 2011

“Ben had a calmness about him that I related to. He wasn’t ostentatious like you’d expect a rock star to be. He was gentle and kind, and loved family.” — Julie Snider, Benjamin’s fiancee at the time of his death; A History and Retrospective on the Life of Benjamin Orr, by John Colapinto

In other words:

“We were just amazed watching Benny. He could play any instrument, and he could sing. He was so smooth, so well-dressed. Honest to God, he was just beautiful. It was stunning.” — Ginny Mayer, co-manager and wife of Grasshoppers manager Joe Mayer; from “A History & Retrospective on the Life of Benjamin Orr” by John Colapinto
