    I got to go to the Jack Johnson/Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals show in Columbus, OH last night. It was awesome. I got there way early and got into the front row of the gen. admission venue. I was a mere 5 feet from Juan. He is such an awe-inspiring bassist. He went into a solo during "Steal My Kisses" (which is an awesome bass-driven song anyway) that brought the house down. After the song I shouted something to the affect of, "Juan, you're me hero!" and he looked right at me and made the I Love You sign language symbol. It was awesome. With the show last night he solidified his spot as my 2nd fav. bassist ever, The Ox taking number 1. Rock on...
    And Merlo (Jack's bassist) was pretty sweet too.
