The Peter Frampton Rig Rundown episode by Premier Guitar magazine was a fun episode. We know that Peter Frampton is a legend on a few different levels. But I really enjoy the insight you get from these conversations. One thing that I thought was interesting.. was how much of a gear-head he is. I knew he was a part of Framptone, and has amazing gear – but I have seen musicians like this, that just want to play and don’t really even understand their intricate set up. Peter definitely knew and understood his set up! I like that he was so obsessed for recreating sounds that some effects were used sparingly depending on the song.
The next part that I enjoyed was his story about his classic 3-pickup Les Paul Custom that was lost, then found. This story alone is worth watching the video. Amazing bad luck, followed by amazing good luck with 30 years in between!
