Jah Work: A Lewis Marnell Tribute

jah-work-a-lewis-marnell-tributeBen Harper is helping to raise money for the family of Australian pro skateboarder Lewis Marnell, whose untimely death in January at the age of 30 left his family in dire financial straits. A lifelong skateboarding enthusiast and friend to skaters around the world, Harper has reunited with the Innocent Criminals for the first time since 2007 to re-record the song “Jah Work” from his 1997 album, “The Will to Live.” The song is now available on iTunes, Amazon.com and Google Play, with all proceeds going to the Lewis Marnell family memorial fund.

“Lewis was a brilliant artist and athlete not to mention a truly beautiful soul. We loved him and his contributions to skating, and we thought a song would be a wonderful way to celebrate his life and help his family.” said Harper.

Marnell died Jan. 18 from complications of diabetes, a disease he lived with from the age of 10. He did not allow his condition to impede his meteoric skateboarding career. He skated with such passion and style that can’t be replicated, he made all his tricks look effortless and his love for life was infectious. In 2008 he made his mark when he went pro for Almost Skateboards and he was named Skater of the Year from Australian skateboarding magazine slam. Marnell got married in late 2012, and died only a few months later, leaving his family with a large debt. Global efforts to help the family financially ensued, with Harper’s being the latest.

Video: Ben Harper doing a nollie heelflip

Interviewé par MusiqueMag à l’occasion de la sortie de son album Give Till It’s Gone (l’interview complète est à lire ici), Ben Harper en vient à se confier sur sa passion pour le skate qu’il défend sur la chanson “Clearly Severly“. Visiblement enthousiaste de parler de planche à roulettes, le musicien propose de leur envoyer une video d’un trick qu’il compte effectuer à Sydney après l’entretien.
Une promesse qu’il a tenu comme en attestent les deux videos ci dessous. Grâce à MusiqueMag, regardez Ben Harper effectuer un nollie heelflip.

Je skate depuis que je suis petit. Par intermittences. Mais ces trois dernières années, je n’ai pas arrêté de skater. Je suis actuellement à Sydney. Je vois l’Opera House par la fenêtre et une fois cette interview terminée, l’Opera House a accepté que je skate dans leur parking. Comme il pleut dehors. Une fois raccrochée, je prends ma bouteille d’eau, mon bandana et je vais skater. Je vais essayer de faire un nollie. D’ailleurs, je m’engage à t’envoyer la video si jamais j’y arrive.”

“Le skate est plus qu’un sport. Sans le skate, je serai certainement paumé. C’est un moyen d’expression. Je surfe aussi mais je ne ressens pa la même sensation de liberté sur la vague. ‘Clearly Severely‘ parle clairement de skate de la douleur qui va avec. Si tu veux faire du skate, apprends avant tout à tomber. Si cela fait mal, recommence. La skate te permet de contrer la peur. Il t’enseigne le sens du défi, la discipline, l’envie et le fait d’essayer jusqu’à temps que tu y arrives. Malgré les bleus“.
