    From the "Does Anyone Remember This Band?" corner.

    I only really remember these two songs ─ and they scored very highly in the charts at the time, not to mention at parties ─ but they were actually quite good. I saw them at "Later... with Jools Holland", and when you're invited on that show as a band/artist, then there's no faking it ─ all bands/artists have to perform live in the TV studio.

    I always liked his stuff...

    I always wondered how he made that 'weird' sound

    I think this is my favorite:

    It's called a Talk Box. Frampton was the one who popularized it and perfectioned it ─ he's now manufacturing and selling them, even ─ because an early version of it already existed at the time, but apart from Jeff Beck, only very few other guitarists were ever using it at the time.

    Essentially, the box ─ which can be switched on and off with a foot switch ─ contains a tiny little speaker, and when the box is switched on, all of the sound from the guitar amplifier is routed through the little speaker instead of through the amplifier's speaker cabinet. The little speaker itself connects to a flexible rubbery tube that runs up the microphone stand and terminates right next to the microphone. The guitarist then puts the end of the tube in his mouth. By squeezing the tube with his lips or teeth and shaping the mouth cavity with his tongue, the guitarist will as such be substituting his own voice by the sound of the guitar, and from the guitarist's mouth, the sound will then enter the singing microphone, again just as if it were his own voice. According to most people who've used a Talk Box ─ including Peter Frampton himself ─ it's very hard on your tooth fillings because of the sonic pressure. It's like your whole skull is vibrating.

    On an entirely different note ─ pun not intended ─ but still related to Peter Frampton, there's also a very intriguing story regarding the black three-pickup Gibson Les Paul Custom he's using in that clip of "Do You Feel Like We Do". First of all, it is not a guitar that he bought ─ it was donated to him. He was playing a series of gigs at one point, and he was playing a semi-acoustic Gibson ES-335, but the thing kept on feedbacking all the time because of the loud volume. Then somebody ─ I'm not sure anymore who, but I think it was a fan ─ decided to donate his own customized 1954 Les Paul Custom ─ which had been sent back to Gibson to have it refit with three humbucking pickups instead of the two single-coil pickups it originally had ─ to Frampton, and he finished the entire series of concerts on that guitar, and gone were the feedback issues. From then on, that black Les Paul Custom would become Frampton's favorite guitar.

    Then disaster struck. At one point, Frampton was scheduled for a series of concerts in South America, and the cargo plane carrying all of the band's equipment crashed in the jungle. The crew were all killed, and the equipment was considered lost. But someone down there discovered the plane wreck and stumbled upon Frampton's guitar. It was in a flight case and as such it was fairly well protected, albeit that it had still sustained a little bit of (primarily cosmectic) damage.

    The guy decided to keep the guitar for himself, but when he was playing with his own band one night, another guy in the audience recognized the guitar as having belonged to Peter Frampton, and he started negotiating between Frampton and the "new owner". A certain undisclosed amount of money was paid and the individuals involved were kept anonymous, but so as of a few years ago, Frampton now has that 1954 Les Paul Custom back in his possession, and he has even already been using it again live on stage instead of the replica signature model that the Gibson Custom Shop had made for him.

    That song came out during my teenage years. I think I was 14 or so at the time.

    I'm not sure whether I've posted this song before, although I do remember having posted a couple of other songs by them. They were a Dutch band — initially with a different singer during the first year, but that one lost her voice and was then replaced with Jerney Kaagman, who would remain with the band until they split up somewhere in the second half of the 1980s. They started off as a progressive rock band, but then later on in the 1980s — after most of the lineup of the band had already been replaced — they adopted a more commercial style. Eventually they split up.

    This is song is from the mid 1970s.

    "Published on May 8, 2019 by Playing For Change

    In honor of blues legend Robert Johnson's birthday, we are proud to share our latest Song Around The World, "Walking Blues," featuring Keb' Mo' along with musicians from six countries. Originally written and recorded by Son House in 1930, Robert recorded his own version in 1936. We started our version in Patagonia, Argentina with Roberto Luti and Nico Bereciartua playing slide guitars in front of a 100-year-old​ fig tree and with that raw performance, we added friends as we traveled to create a blues jam around the world. Blues is always from the people for the people and this video creates a moment in time to come together and put all the darkness and division we face as a human race into the music so it can set us free. Turn it up and enjoy!"
