Harold,

Went to see Frampton in the '70's at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia where the U.S. portion of Live Aid was performed in 1985. JFK was a 100,000 seat stadium, similar in structure to the Rose Bowl. The acoustics left much to be desired, but he gave a great performance. It was in the summer and the temperature was 95 degrees. Half the stadium passed out, lol.

The Wells Fargo Center, where the Flyers and Sixers play, now grace those grounds.

Regards.

Seeing the young and old Frampton sure is a reminder of how short life is! Time passes faster as we age, it seems.

Yeah, Steve Miller did better in the aging department, somehow keeping all his hair.
Here's a song that wasn't expected, a tribute to Chris Cornell. who died in May this year:

Frampton plays Blackhole Sun like it was made for him.
