I know THAT song of course. But otherwise Peter Frampton and his music have pretty much passed me by. However there is a lovely interview with him in this month’s Mojo. He comes across as a thoroughly decent cove.Not falsely modest, but grateful for the success he’s had. Aware but not bitter about the times he’s been ripped off. Uniformly generous about those he’s encountered along the way; Steve Marriott, David Bowie, his larger than life former manager Dee Anthony. And now philosophical and positive about the incurable and rare degenerative disease he has. It’s lovely and heartwarming stuff.
The one real downer is that the interview was done to promote a tour he should be doing right now, which was likely to be his last ever given his condition. I really hope he gets a chance to do it later this year instead, or in 2021 before it’s too late.
