I was just having this discussion actually. I think, inevitably, Ben gets in, and I'm ok with it. He's got a good body of work that crosses over a couple of sub-genres. He's done stuff with rock, reggae, hip hop, and some of the newer "Jack Johnson" chill/surfer sub-genre.

Having his complete collection, I find that he has grown throughout his career. While he hasn't had a ton of commercial success, he fits his niche market very well.

If the HOF was determined by actual musical ability and talent, Ben Harper would be 100% in.

He should get in for "morning yearning" alone
