"Exqueese me? Have I seen this one before? Frampton Comes Alive!? Everybody's got Frampton Comes Alive!. If you lived in the suburbs, you were issued it. It came in the mail with samples of Tide."
- Wayne Campbell, Wayne's World 2 (1993)
Unfortunately, Frampton's bland persona could not hold his audience's attention. He followed the live album with 1977's I'm In You and by appearing in the much ridiculed 1978 movie Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Within 18 months he vanished from our collective radar.
Do we think Peter Frampton -- at least once in his life--announced in the midst of a sexual climax "Frampton comes alive!"?
