Peter Frampton

When: Tue., Aug. 3 2010

Grammy Award winning rock guitarist and songwriter Peter Frampton — one of the biggest rock stars of the 1970s — brings his hot guitar chops to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on Tuesday evening, sans messiah-like golden locks. The British-born singer/songwriter got his start in rock as a teen sensation in the ’60s, playing in the mod-pop band The Herd and the bluesier rock band Humble Pie (alongside former members of the Faces) before becoming a bona fide arena rock star as a solo act in the ’70s. Frampton’s 1975 live double album Frampton Comes Alive! featured the easy-rockin’ hits “Baby, I Love Your Way,” “Do You Feel Like We Do,” and “Show Me the Way” (remember his robotic-sounding talk box thingy?). Frampton made a high-profile acting debut in 1978, playing Billy Shears in the tacky, Bee Gees’s-driven film version of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. In recent years, he recorded and toured with Bill Wyman & The Rhythm Kings and Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band. His latest album is a studio effort titled Thank You, Mr. Churchill (his first disc since his instrumental album, Fingerprints). —T. Ballard Lesemann
