...2 nights ago. Anyone that lived music of the 70's knows this iconic album:

Guys trip. Flew to Salt Lake City to hang w/my best friend (buddy Buck) and see Peter Frampton. Superb show. What a phenomenal guitarist, funny dude and an inspiration on how, even when faced w/a debilitating muscular disease, to live life in spite of his reality....and inevitable conclusion. (https://www.guitarworld.com/news/peter-frampton-farewell-tour-seated)

Did some reading on his life story. Worth, at a minimum, looking over his wiki page...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Frampton

Also, if inclined, cast a vote...he's been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. https://vote.rockhall.com/en

Quick 2 day trip but the icing on the cake was lunch at the Red Iguana before heading to the airport. Killer Mexican food, especially their mole's. https://www.rediguana.com/

So, if you get the opportunity to see him, "Just do it". Other than having to sit while he performs, the man still has mad skills at age 73.

    Yeah man. I saw Frampton live in Austin back in 76. It was an outdoor venue. Along with Frampton was, Santana, Gary Wright and America.....one heck of a show!!!

    My brother was at the show in Plattsburg, New York from which a few of the songs for the live album were taken.

    Not my best sentence, but I'm keeping it.

    The Frampton SACD's are very nice. They came out with 3 last year for 50th anniversary.
    Frampton, Camel and
    Winds of change.

    Glad to see he made the class of 2024 R&R Hall of Fame inductees a few days ago. https://variety.com/2024/music/news/rock-roll-hall-of-fame-2024-inductees-1235977662/

    That would've been an epic concert!

    I've been to 200+ concerts and can't say I've ever made it on a live album (to my knowledge). Frampton would be iconic. Closest I have is a Stones bootleg from their 1982 "Farewell Tour" and I was "on" one track...also, a Motley Crew bootleg when I saw them open for Iron Maiden around 1984. SQ sucks on both!

    Have all 3 and agree. Surprised they didn't and wish they would release Comes Alive. Edit to add...maybe in 2026?

    Frampton Comes Alive was already released on SACD and DVD-Audio a loooong time ago.
