Benjamin Burnley Appreciation Thread

This dude, after seeing him about 3 weeks ago, has burrowed into my heart and soul. I recently purchased all 3 of Breaking Benjamin's albums and JT can attest to their quality. I know alot of the pretentious music lovers here (you now who you are) will call them novices or what have you but these guys are really good.

A text message from a chick who had heard them in my car when JT and I went to Destin inquiring about their identity is what led me to make this thread.

From wikipedia...

Quote:
The band never travels outside of the U.S. and Canada due to Ben Burnley's fear of flying (though he said he would love to play outside the States and will go as far as a boat will take him).

How could you not love this dude?!?!?!

One of my faves, a beautiful song entitled 'Rain'

[I]Take a photograph,
It'll be the last,
Not a dollar or a crowd could ever keep me here,

I don't have a past
I just have a chance,
Not a family or honest plea remains to say,

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

Is it you I want,
Or just the notion
Of a heart to wrap around so I can find my way around

Safe to say from here,
You're getting closer now,
We are never sad cause we are not allowed to be

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

To lie here under you,
Is all that I could ever do,
To lie here under you is all,
To lie here under you is all that i could ever do,
To lie here under you is all,

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.[/I]
