I first met Peter Frampton in 1997 at the old Hard Rock Cafe on Hastings Street. At the time I interviewed him for Global TV’s The Performers. Peter recalled that interview when we met at the River Rock Show Theatre. It was a great reunion talking about his career and his travels around the world.
Peter’s album Frampton Comes Alive, recorded at San Francisco’s Winterland in 1976, held the record for the biggest selling album in history until recent years. That album went six times platinum. I complimented him on winning a Grammy for his instrumental CD Fingerprints. An interesting marketing strategy: while Peter’s show was going on in the theatre it was being recorded. When the show concluded you could buy a 2-CD set in the lobby. A great idea!
