Frampton Shows The Way

Seeing Peter Frampton on last week’s Oprah only further cemented his status of rock icon. Not like we had any doubts but he seems to wear the moniker well. The ease of his presence stole the show and it was more like a watch and learn lesson of what legendary really looks like. I only hope it was as good for him as it was for the daytime crowd. He recently sat down and talked with boomitude (that’s right, he takes our call as well as O’s) and on this final podcast installment, Frampton sheds some light on the indelible stamp he has left on an era and shows us the way to the phenomenon known as Frampton Comes Alive….talk box and all.

And if you look really close at the shot we took (left), you’ll notice PF is wearing his signature silver link chain except this time it’s holding his specs. That’s genius. Where else would a guitar hero hold his reading glasses? Hey, maybe we’re on to something – a whole line of eye wear and accessories for the rock star in you….Peter’s Peepers!? Frampton’s Eyes Come Alive?? Peter, call us!

    Wow! Thanks Boomitude for having the Podcast on Peter Frampton. What a great ride back in time! I loved the sound back then and love it today. And Thanks Peter for doing the Podcast. So you were too pretty to be recognized as a true rock and roll singer? That’s garbage! You are still gorgeous and your music is still great. Although I have to say you were the one and only crush I had back then on anyone in the music world and I didn’t even like blonde men! So it had to be partly the music! Thanks for letting us know on Face Book what’s going on with you. I love it when you pop up on my page! All the best to you and keep on entertaining us! Thanks Boomitude!

    You’ve done a great job keeping the music to stand up through every decade since Humble pie days. It was great to see you perform with YES for a second time. Not many know that you toured with them during the recording of Frampton Comes Alive, which is still the best selling Live album of all time. Everything is good & I love how you can even do and instrumental album like Fingerprints and show the quality of your musical knowledge. Keep up the great work and I hope that I can work more with you in the future. Peace & Love,
