Peter Frampton on Frampton Comes Alive! (1976)

Peter Frampton: “People are buying my life”

“People are buying my life when they’re buying those records… suddenly everything you’ve been doing means something.”

Peter continues, “For me, lyrics are the most difficult part of what I do. I can’t fabricate them. I can’t sing about something I don’t believe in or that hasn’t happened to me.”

As Peter Frampton’s latest album passes the five million mark (unprecedented for a two-record set), he comments on the phenomenal success of ‘Frampton Comes Alive!‘ with an objectivity that comes from having spent 10 years on the road. “I could never compete with the LP. Or with who Peter Frampton is supposed to be. Inside, I’m still marveling at it all from 1000 feet high. It’s not me I see.”
