Peter Frampton Breathing New Life Into '70's Classics
Although some acts on the road are packing 20, sometimes 30 songs into their nighty setlists, Peter Frampton has scaled back his set and is featuring extended solos on nearly every song of the show. Alongside such '70s classics like "Show Me The Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way," Frampton is pulling out all the stops with elongated versions of such Frampton Comes Alive favorites as "Lines On My Face" and "(I'll Give You) Money" -- which grows into a fierce guitar dual with bandmate Adam Lester.
 
After decades of being left on the sidelines, the modern Frampton band has brought back "Doobie Wah" -- a tune Frampton says serves as a salute to his drummers past and present: "'Doobie Wah' was a John Siomos-feel creation drum-wise. And very few people can do that. I have a drummer now -- Dan Wojciechowski -- who is probably. . . I don't know how he does it, but as well as having this amazing style of his own, he manages to morph himself into every character that's ever sat behind the drums for me. And he loves it, and he loves doing it. John Siomos would be honored to hear what Dan does."
