Aerosmith- Rocks 45th- Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford, Joey Kramer

Aerosmith "Rocks". It was a declarative statement in Spring 1976 with no equivocation. If Toys in the Attic  a year earlier had been the definitive mid-Seventies   American hard rock statement, then Aerosmith Rocks  made it musically imperative with "Back in the Saddle", "Sick as a Dog", the clever sequel to "Toys..." with "Rats in the Cellar", and another infectious Steven Tyler/Brad Whitford hit, "Last Child". 

Peter Frampton Forgets the Words pt 2

In the conclusion to my all-new interview focusing on his brilliant all-instrumental album "Frampton Forgets the Words",  delightful conversationalist Peter Frampton picks one of my favorite Stevie Wonder chestnuts to interpret, "I Don't Know Why", and explains to us how Motown, "The Sound of Young America", was in fact even bigger in his home country the UK than here; rocks out with his band on Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way"; reveals his lifelong brotherly love for David Bowie; and much more in this part two.

Peter Frampton- Frampton Forgets the Words interview

When Peter Frampton announced in 2019 that his diagnosis with a progressive neuromuscular disease would necessitate his final goodbye tour then, no one was more concerned than me.
