But today what they have in common is that they came on the radio (in the above order) one after the other today and each brought back a great concert memory for me.
Peter's multi-million selling , "Peter Frampton Comes Alive" is the best selling live album of all time. Its sad that his talent was overshadowed by his" overnight sensation" popularity because he's a good musician. I went to see him at the Forum of Inglewood with my friend Kim and her brother Clint. It was a great show, I think I was 17 at the time. There really is something cool about hearing him do "Do You Feel Like I Do" live.

George came on after a long line of mediorce bands and livened us up. After they played it was J Geils and then the Stones. I don't think I could live through another one of those all day things again.....
And Sir Elton John - saw him under the stars on a warm summer night at Irvine Meadows Ampitheater. It was the one and only time I saw him perform and he was not a disappointment. He really is amazing on the piano and fun to watch. I don't remember much of it but I recall enjoying it and my favorite part was when he lied under the piano playing it....anyone have any idea if there's a cerain song that goes with that? I don't recall.
Anyhow - those are my thoughts du jour. Hope you're all having a great weekend/week.
