Peter Framptonâ€™s career spikes over the past four decades make our recent economic roller coaster seem like gently rolling countryside.
The British child singer was â€śThe Face of 1968â€ť in Rave Magazine when he was The Herdâ€™s teenage guitarist, and he became a bona fide sensation as the guitar hero in Humble Pie in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Framptonâ€™s subsequent solo career has been defined by highs and lows, but his current roll has been all upward.
His 2006 instrumental album Fingerprints won a Grammy; his latest album,Thank You Mr. Churchill, is generating great press; and his ongoing tour with Yes is doing good business in a slumping concert economy.
The legendary guitarist/singer/songwriter (and current Cincinnati resident) celebrates the Fourth of July with Yes at Lake Forest Venue in Blue Ash. The "Red, White and Blue Ash" festival starts at 2 p.m.; Yes plays at 6 p.m. and Frampton at 8 p.m..
