Peter Frampton: 35th Anniversary of Frampton Comes Alive!

This week nationally syndicated Rock radio show InTheStudio celebrates the 35th Anniversary of Frampton Comes Alive! Show producer and Host Redbeard visits with Peter Frampton. Visit InTheStudio to listen to the show ONLINE!!

  Peter Frampton’s double concert album Frampton Comes Alive! in January 1976 was so phenomenally successful,and his resultant fame so widespread,that it is hard to remember a time when he wasn’t. I remember clearly my disappointment when he left Humble Pie, but was impressed that he wasted no time launching a solo career with the tasty 1972 release Wind of Change. Shortly after the release of the follow-up Frampton’s Camel in 1973, I drove several hundred miles during the Arab Oil Embargo to see Peter Frampton open for the Edgar Winter Group in Massillon Ohio’s football stadium . Even with what looked to be about five feet of stage depth allotted and undoubtedly only half of the P.A. afforded to

the support band , Frampton’s smartly-rehearsed band exhibited the same energy, exuberance, and tightly-arranged hooky songs that would be hallmarks of his record-setting live album three years later.
