I saw Peter Frampton play tonight in Saratoga (Mountain Winery) and it was breathtaking.
Clearly, 32 years of practicing since his virtuoso Frampton Comes Alive has paid off. If anyone out there reading this saw this performance, I would love to hear what you think.
He played all the hits, of course, but also some incredible instrumentals from his new material, an unbelievable version of Do You Feel Like We Do, a Humble Pie hit that dwarfs the old and he ended, appropriately to a standing ovation, with George Harrison's While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
If anyone out there has videos or photos of this, please send along. This isn't an old hit maker rehashing the past. I have never seen a more incredible performance (and that includes a small Boston performance of The The.) If you thought young Peter was amazing in his 70s work, you will be impressed and amazed at how this guitar genius has managed to improve his skills 100-fold.
Thank you to Sheri Little for selling me her tickets. Holy cow. Before and after, everyone in the crowd was grinning from ear to ear.
Tomorrow, I'll include a link to his newest instrumental album. I don't believe there is a better guitarist in the world right now. Someone try to prove me wrong.
