FRAMPTON: STILL ALIVE
MSNBC has an interesting profile of Peter Frampton, who has a new album out. He’s the prototypical VH1 Behind the Music story, unfortunately: Fame, wealth, stupid choices, and oblivion. The good news is he seems to have gotten his life together.
The snippet from a Katie Couric interview is rather amusing:
Couric: “And then I guess your definitive jump-the-shark moment was with the movie “Sergeant Pepper.”
Frampton: “If things weren’t bad enough, yes, Katie, the movie came along. Yes, just at the right time or the wrong time, yeah.”
The 1978 box-office bomb “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,”co-starring the Bee Gee’s, was that year’s “Gigli”– and called by some the worst movie ever made.
