We’re pretty excited about this week’s installment for Artist of the Month: Peter Frampton! We sent Peter a few questions we’ve been dying to ask, and the answers are in!
What was Peter’s first concert ever attended?
First concert Peter attended was one in which he played with The TruBeats (his first band) when he was 11 years old!
Peter’s favorite venue/show played?
Favorite venue/show he’s played was in Detroit at DTE Energy Music Theatre (originally Pinewood Music Theatre) the night he filmed his Live In Detroit DVD.
Which artists is he listening to you right now?
Currently, he is listening to Peter Gabriel, Otis Redding, and Wes Montgomery.
If Peter wasn’t playing music, what would he be doing right now?
If he wasn’t a musician, he’d be the director of cinematography for Steven Spielberg.
Why does Peter choose to support Sweet Relief?
He chooses to support Sweet Relief because he believes in helping others and that we should take care of one another.
And finally, Pineapple on pizza?
No pineapple in a million years!
Last week we announced a very special giveaway to one of our lucky email subscribers. Today we picked a winner! Congratulations to Shawn, D!
Thank you to those who subscribed. We look forward to bringing you the latest Sweet Relief news!
Thank you Oneida!
Last Saturday (3.10) Oneida played a show for the release of their new album Romance at Secret Project Robot. Their drummer, Kid Millions, was recently in a very serious car accident and was unable to attend but luckily he is recovering and doing ok! His accident got the band thinking about how they could help their fellow musicians/community.
NYCTaper recorded the show on Saturday and Oneida has decided to offer the audio as a pay-what-you-want download via the NYCTaper Bandcamp page. You can find the download HERE, profits go to Sweet Relief!
