Frampton rocks The Beatles’ TV special

Frampton rocks The Beatles’ TV special

I was really glad to see Peter Frampton onstage as part of the house band for The Beatles: The Night That Changed America – A Grammy Salute special last Sunday night.

From what I’ve been able to piece together from interviews and from a couple of brief backstage conversations we’ve had, he is truly one of the die-hard Beatles fans in rock.  Frampton recorded extensively with George Harrison during his All Things Must Pass album sessions, went on to tour as part of Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band, and sometimes closes his own shows with Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

Check out Peter Frampton jamming with Ringo on “Boys,” and a bonus!

He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
