Peter Frampton was a GOD during my high school daze (SLYT)
Take note at 10:00, when he takes over the drums.
He hasn't lost anything but a bit of hair. He still tours
and has the chops.
He is playing his beloved 1954 Les Paul
After the happy reunion, he plays it
for the 1st time.

Somewhere along the line, you might've heard one of the biggest hits to ever come out of the world of jazz: it was a song originally made famous by Les McCann and Eddie Harris back in 1969, called Compared To What
. If you were in the right place at the right time, you might've even caught them doing it live
. Or, if you were born a little too late for all that, you might've heard the song performed by John Legend and the Roots
. Well, the man who wrote the song, Gene McDaniels
, has just left us
at age 76. RIP Gene McDaniels.
