Not sure what to say?

My husband and I saw Ben in concert in Nashville in May 2013. It was our first visit to Nashville and attending the gig made the whole experience very special. We loved Ben's music and often play the CD we got at the same time. Our condolences to his friends and family; a great loss. Helen & Tom

You lived amongst us here in Big Timber, MT., and I didn't realize you had this additional talent of playing guitars and singing. I did hear one performance at the Crazy Mountain Museum which struck me as very thoughtful. You described what it may have been like to be a soldier landing on DDay, l945. "I couldn't find a crease"

My wife & I came across Ben's music quite late in his recording career through a prompt from Guy Clark. We consider ourselves enriched by the insight, humor and wonderful story-telling that lives on in each of Ben's songs. A true inspiration to us all, even in his passing. Ben, you will be missed.


REMEMBERING BEN,

I WAS SO BLESSED TO HAVE KNOWN BEN.

OUR PATHS ONLY CROSSED BRIEFLY IN THE EARLY 80'S WHEN WE WORKED TOGETHER IN THE OIL FIELDS. THOSE DAYS WERE SPECIAL AND WHEN YOU MADE A FRIEND IT WAS A LIFELONG FRIEND. HEART FRIENDS; EVEN IF THAT LIFE EVENT WAS THE ONLY TIME SPENT TOGETHER.

LIFE TOOK US EACH ON A SEPARATE JOURNEY… AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE LIFE BEN LIVED; A TRUE INSPIRATION TO FULFILL ALL YOUR DREAMS WHILE YOU ARE HERE.

BEN...

Ben and my husband Rod share the same enthusiasm for fine guitars. When Ben was doctoring in White Sulfur Springs, Rod went to see Ben about a throbbing ankle. When Ben came into the little room and saw Rod he immediately ran to his car to get the "new" Martin he had just picked up at the PO. Insisted Rod play it. Ben was so excited about that Martin! The ankle could wait. Rod tells this story often, with fondness for a very special man. Ben will be so missed by so many. His music...

I never had the chance to meet Ben, though I'd have counted it as an honor and a privelege. I only was able to hear him sing in person once, I'd have liked it to be many more times. His music plays often in my house and in my car... I count it as inspiration and comfort. Ben will live on in many hearts through his music. Sincere condolences to his family and friends... Their loss is huge.

It will not be the same at Red Ants Pants fest without you.Thank you for the wonderful memories I will always have of you.You were one of the greats,and yet so humble.It's an honor to have met you.

RIP Ben was a pleasure to know you.Waited for you to get to Billings but you never made it,I will have to listen to you on your web site.So enjoy your music.Thank you!
