Ben Folds Regrets Missing Dinner With Fidel Castro

Ben Folds, the lead singer of the reunited Ben Folds Five (who are prepping their first album since 1999's The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner), sat down with Fuse for an very, very intimate interview recently. What did we learn? Well, among other things, that Folds missed the chance to dine with Fidel Castro in the '90s!

Ben said, "My biggest regret is that I didn't take an invitation in the '90s to go to Cuba to play with some Cuban bands and found out later that they had dinner with Fidel Castro... That is my greatest regret!"

Watch the video above to hear Ben Folds tell the story in detail. Are you excited for Ben Folds Five's comeback? Tell us in the comments!
