not really.

he is one of my favourite singer / songwriters. And he is touring in the UK in June, which will make my summer altogether better.

Just read the info on the Wiki link - he's 41, and been married 4 times? Wow...not relevant to his music, I know...unless it provides him with inspiration/artistic fodder.

If we had a music topic, we could go there and I could expound for many pages on the greatness of Ben Folds. But there isn't, so I shan't.

However, while reading the wikipedia entry I linked to above, I found out that Ben is on his fourth wife! I'm shocked, not least because one of his most lovely, heartfelt songs about love everlasting was written for wife number 3..

My mistake, he won't be 41 until next year.

Interesting that his most heartfelt lovesongs were written for third wife who he divorced in April 2007, and it appears from the entry he is already married to fourth wife.

I was given a cd of his third wife's music a few months ago, (she is an artist herself), but have never listened to it. Must dig it out.
