NASHVILLE (AP) – Peter Frampton acquired a taste for brandy back in the day because of his talk box. Frampton says to keep the tube clean, his roadies used to dip it in brandy. Nowadays he’s a bit more sterile about it. Frampton says it’s medical tubing and his techs give him a fresh tube every night. Frampton will launch his “Guitar Circus Tour” on May 26 in Little Rock, Arkansas, with Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth and B.B. King appearing on select dates. The tour hits the Beacon Theatre in New York with Roberty Cray on June 27th.
