Peter Frampton - 'Frampton Comes Alive II'
Much like Cheap Trick, Peter Frampton broke through in a huge way with a live album back in the Seventies. As Wayne Campbell said in Wayne's World 2: "Everybody in the world has Frampton Comes Alive. If you lived in the suburbs, you were issued it. It came in the mail with samples of Tide." It sold millions and millions of copies, but things quickly turned sour from Frampton, and just 10 years after it came out he was playing guitar in David Bowie's backing band. Thinking that maybe people just didn't want studio versions of his songs, he made another live album in 2005 and called it Frampton Comes Alive II. The songs on the LP are superior to the originals, but this was the era of Hootie and the Blowfish, and very few people cared.
