Peter Frampton

When: Mon., Aug. 11 2014

What T-Pain is to Auto-Tune, Peter Frampton was to the talk-box. Each turned gimmicky novelties into something much more lucrative. On 1976's 6-million-selling Frampton Comes Alive! the former Humble Pie guitarist used the device to make his instrument sound like a voice, which is pretty much the opposite of what Auto-Tune does. Joe Walsh and Zapp's Roger Troutman used similar techniques, but neither could compete with crowd-pleasing hits like "Show Me the Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way." Frampton has since released a string of critically acclaimed, commercially ignored albums, but you can expect him to break out the talk-box and go heavy on the hits tonight at Pueblo Memorial Hall (1 City Hall Place, Pueblo, Showtime is 7:30; tickets are $45/adv, $50/door. —Bill Forman
