Ben will be the first to tell you he’s an unconventional icon, more normcore than hardcore. Now, in his first book, which debuted as a New York Times Best Seller, he looks back at his life so far in a charming and wise chronicle of his artistic coming of age, infused with the wry observations of a natural storyteller. Ben opens up about finding his voice as a musician, become a rock antihero, and hauling a baby grand piano on and off stage for every performance.
In his inimitable voice, both relatable and thought-provoking, Ben digs deep into the life experiences that shaped him, imparting hard-earned wisdom about both art and life. Collectively, these stories embody the message he has been singing about for years: Smile like you’ve got nothing to prove, because it hurts to grow up, but everybody does, and life flies by in seconds.
