Peter Frampton told us that after his record breaking ascent to superstardom with 1976's Frampton Comes Alive!, he's always there for younger artists who need some guidance: “It's always nice to give back some info and, you know, help out. The public have given me a lot, so for the people that are really interested in going into music, maybe I can help them not make (laughs) all the mistakes I made.”
Frampton told us that back during the original Frampton Comes Alive era, his legendary black Gibson Les Paul was a warhorse onstage and unlike today — when due to various tunings, he can go through half a dozen guitars during a single show — the guitar had to handle everything Frampton threw at it: “We didn't have more than one guitar in those days, y'know. If you wanted another guitar, you sold the one you had to get another one (laughs). So it was only. . . I think I had a white backup Les Paul — that was about it. And nobody really had backups of things — that was it. I think if there was different tuning for 'Nowhere's Too Far (For My Baby)' I would do it before the number onstage by myself. I don't tune myself anymore; I have someone I pay to do that (laughs) — fancy schmancy, yeah!”
