Frampton Comes Alive! Turns 40

Comments Off

Can you believe it has been 40 years today since Peter Frampton’s seminal live album, Frampton Comes Alive!?  It was a phenomenon upon its debut and the album has now sold more than 11 million copies worldwide. To celebrate, here’s Cameron’s liner notes from the January 6, 1976 release.

Frampton Comes Alive!

It’s the classic tale of most inspired performers. Be they actor or musician or both, anyone whose art often burns with the passion of a man possessed is more often than not a soft-spoken personality away from their craft. Twenty-five-year-old Peter Frampton is no miraculous exception. He is a quietly good-natured man who, in his own words, lives for the stage.

Door Reviews: Frampton, Croce, New Riders, Black Oak & Hank Snow

Comments Off

Happy Friday everyone. I’d like to share 5 mini-reviews that Cameron did for the San Diego Door. He completely dominated the Stereoscopes (i.e. review) section of the July 28, 1972 issue, so I’ll be sharing all of his reviews over three or four posts. For now, he’s pretty harsh on Black Oak Arkansas and Jim Croce, while being mixed on the latest albums from Hank Snow and New Riders of the Purple Sage. On a better note, he’s very favorable on the first solo album from some guy named Peter Frampton (who used to be the group Humble Pie). Could be the start of a beautiful friendship…

George Harrison Tribute

Comments Off

georgeharrison

Peter Frampton paid homage to the late George Harrison at a concert he organized and Cameron also donated signed items from Almost Famous for charity silent auction to raise money for the Sept. 11 relief fund. During an encore last Sunday night, the British guitarist played an emotional version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” as a tribute to Harrison, who died of cancer on Nov. 29 at age 58.

In Vanilla Sky, Cruise’s character David Aames describes lead guitarist George as his favorite Beatle. In the movie, Tom says, “I always liked George.” Crowe and Cruise considered scrapping the line, but decided against it. “We were both so sad. Tom and I kept saying, ‘Can you believe he’s dead?’ We decided it would be too late to change the line now and how it’s almost more meaningful now.”
