We are very excited today because we're fortunate enough to have the legendary rocker Peter Frampton joining us for a Special Live Chat so he can discuss his brand new single "Road To The Sun," from his album entitled Thank You Mr Churchill.
“This album is very autobiographical. It starts with my birth, in which I thank Mr. Churchill for bringing my father back from the Second World War,” says Frampton of his new set. “I woke up one morning and I wondered what would have happened if Winston Churchill hadn’t been at the helm and the British and the Allies had not won. Would my dad have not come back? Would I be here? Probably not.”
What makes this new single even more unique is that his son Julian co-wrote the song and accompanies his father with some fine vocals. And it's no surprise that Julian is musically gifted as well.
Mr Churchill also features Frampton’s first recorded collaboration with his son Julian. Frampton says, “Julian started off playing drums. Then one day he played me a song on guitar and he blew me away. He’s now 21 and over the past few years, he’s become a terrific writer. He’s an amazing lyricist, great singer, and a wonderful guitarist. He inspires me. “We’d always wanted to write something together that he could sing and we could put on an album. So we wrote two songs and it was one of the best experiences of my life. “Chris [Kimsey] heard the demo of ‘Road to the Sun’ with Julian singing and said, ‘Who’s that?’ I told him, ‘That’s my son, Julian.’ He said, ‘He’s gotta be on the album.’ Julian’s vocal is the live vocal, it’s take one.

This past January, we did a post about Peter's battles with some rather unsavory folks on his Facebook page and many C&Lers came to his rescue. Since that time, the brave Mr. Frampton has been out on tour in support of his new album and I am thrilled that he is here giving us some of his precious time to chat. Thank you and welcome, Peter!
The video on today's post is entitled "Invisible Man" from Thank You Mr Churchill and features the incredible Funk Brothers. The video for "Road to the Sun" is premiering online very soon.
So without further ado, I'd like to welcome Peter and Julian to the Crooks & Liars and the pages of our Late Nite Music Club. Please join us for a special live chat.
