Cheers Brian!

Here's Selfless, Cold & Composed:

Unsure how active this board is but I wanted to spread this around so enough 'fans' see it. A few weeks ago, some friends and I got together to perform an hours worth of Ben Folds Five in my home of Perth, Western Australia. I had a bunch of cameras running and have just finished editing the show. Here's Uncle Walter:

Setlist performed:
One Angry Dwarf
Uncle Walter
Don't Change Your Plans
Selfless, Cold & Composed
Jackson Cannery
Best Imitation Of Myself

Hope ya'll dig it! This was a result of 2 rehearsals

News / Ben Folds to appear on Ringo Starr tribute album (Dec 4)
« on: November 12, 2015, 10:43:35 PM »

What better way to honor Ringo Starr than with an all-star cast? That’s just what fans will get with The Lifetime of Peace & Love Tribute Concert, a new album due on Dec. 4.
Recorded as part of a 2014 tribute concert and celebration sponsored by the David Lynch Foundation in Los Angeles, the bill includes Joe Walsh, Ben Harper and Starr himself offering new interpretations of some of his most famous songs as a solo artist and with the Beatles.
Also featured are Ben Folds, the Head and the Heart, Ark Life, Brendan Benson and Bettye LaVette, performing with a house band that included Peter Frampton, Steve Lukather, Kenny Aranoff and Benmont Tench of the Heartbreakers. Walsh is Starr’s brother-in-law, and Lukather is a current member of Ringo’s All-Starr Band. Starr has also previously worked with Harper. You can see the complete track listing below.
Starr received the Lifetime of Peace & Love Award that evening. Proceeds from Ringo Starr: The Lifetime of Peace & Love Tribute Concert will benefit the David Lynch Foundation, which helps fund transcendental meditation in schools.
‘Ringo Starr: The Lifetime of Peace & Love Tribute Concert’ Track Listing
Ark Life, “Can’t Do It Wrong”

But they did include it for whatever reason on the Live album - and then not Praytor but there it is, opening the set still. Interesting.

THANKS for the set list!!
Still super bummed Praytor hasn't gotten a look in for the live album. That song is the best song SOTLOTM has! I'd be satisfied if they at least played it live during one of their TV spots or something so I got a nice high quality live recording of it but they keep letting me down. SIGHHH

Can't please 'em all!

No, Bob's was just a picture of Jeff, he wasn't in the photo. This one's better :)

So does anyone follow Bob Saget on Instagram? Cause he posted a photo of Jeff Garlin hanging out at BFF's show with a AAA pass!

It's a good one. More than the usual questions. Also glad to see Darren talk. And at length. :)

And laugh!

Hey guys, I recorded the stream and uploaded it here -

Sounds really good and I split up the audio so interview/songs are separate. Enjoy :)

Is anyone able to copy it, record it, etc.?

Yeah, anyone? Looks like the stream might not be available outside the UK :(

Good news about another BFF album!

Here's a link to my recording of their show!

It's mp3 320k. It's a bit distorted and I had to go through and try and manually "normalize" the wave forms so the volume didn't keep going up and down but all things considered, it's pretty good.

Hold That Thought
Jackson Cannery
Erase Me
Alice Childress
Sky High

What's with Ben Folds/Five always booking females as the support act? Seems like a growing trend to me...
