If I had to name 2 or 3 musicians who I feel have been more of a part of me than any other, Peter would be one of them. Frampton Comes Alive molded both my love of rock music and live concerts, two things that have driven my train since early on. That's why interviewing and meeting Peter a few years back was one of my greatest moments ever. Here's my piece about Peter, read it as we all say: Hey Peter, happy 70th birthday, baby we love your way. Be well, sir.
