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.
Peter Kenneth Frampton (born 22 April 1950) is an English rock musician, singer, songwriter, producer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist. He was previously associated with the bands Humble Pie and The Herd. Frampton's international breakthrough album was his live release, Frampton Comes Alive!. The album sold more than six million copies in the United States alone and spawned several hits. Since then he has released several major albums. He has also worked with David Bowie and both Matt Cameron and Mike McCready from Pearl Jam, among others. Frampton is best known for such hits as "Breaking All The Rules", "Show Me the Way", "Baby, I Love Your Way", "Do You Feel Like We Do", and "I'm in You", which remain staples on classic-rock radio. He has also appeared as himself in television shows such as The Simpsons and Family Guy. Frampton is known for his work as a guitar player and particularly with a Talkbox and his tenor voice.

"The most brutal, ugly, degenerate, vicious form of expression it has been my displeasure to hear," Frank Sinatra
wrote of rock 'n' roll during the time of Elvis Presley. But Frank wasn't stupid... he knew his relevance was fading and if you can't beat 'em, you have to join 'em. So in 1960
, Elvis Presley was welcomed home from his two year military tour
by the Frank Sinatra Timex Show "Welcome Home Elvis"
special. Later Sinatra said, "I'm just a singer. Elvis was the embodiment of the whole American culture."

My son, Peter
has always loved to play hide and seek. In fact, he loves it so much that he will wake me up in the middle of the night to play. The only problem is that Peter has been dead for eight years. This website documents the hell I've lived and continue to live every night.
