Book Review - Do You Feel Like I Do? Peter Frampton
But this memoir shows he was much more than that, and had a very deep career with his musical skills.
He never wanted to be the cover boy. Sadly he did abuse substances. But proud of his continued recovery. He's still played guitar despite a muscle disease which caused his retirement from the road at age seventy.
Multiple marriages, a lot of moving around the USA, several children, and more - Peter Frampton still gives credit to his parents for instilling a good base. He remains close to his younger brother Clive.
cover blub - He thought he lost his favorite guitar (the Phenix) in a fiery plane crash in 1980 in Caracas. But in 2011, it mysteriously showed up again - saved from the wreckage. Frampton tells of that unlikely reunion here in full for the first time, and why the miraculous reappearance is emblematic of his life and career as a quintessential artist.

Do You Feel Like I Do?
His work is a soundtrack to my college years. Sheer fun and good memories. Thanks Peter!

Enjoyed another family series program with the Fort Worth Symphony.
Dan Brown created a book and musical score with an animal theme - Wild Symphony. It was incredibly clever and entertaining. A narrator read each page and Maestro Mouse introduced us to his friends. Then the symphony played the theme music.
The Ray glided smoothly through the water. The kangaroo had a bounce to the tune. The swans eased gracefully and the music was calming. A beetles tune had a lot of percussion as they scurried. And a fave was The Whale complete with that hollow whale call.
It was a wonderful hour and I appreciate the hard work of our local orchestra.
Support the arts y'all!

Finally Friday is Marvelous - latest Ant Man
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania proved entertaining on an incredibly dreary Saturday. Ray and I had a "cheap" early in the day date. The movie is sheer fun, ridiculous, and CGI wow. We like Paul Rudd and he's just an every man kind of guy who can be silly, an Avenger, Big, Small, and can save his family.
I won't begin to explain plot - the whole crew (Paul, Evangeline Lilly (Wasp), Michael Douglas (Dad), Michelle Pfeiffer (Mom), and the daughter get sucked into the Quantum universe. From there we learn about the whole Multiverse going on with the Jonathan Majors character who, of course, wants to rule the whole worlds...plural. Many worlds have been ruined. There are a lot - I mean a lot of battles. It's crazy. The ants tend to rule and Paul Rudd/ Ant Man looks like a hero.
Stay for final credits and then the final, final final credits for teasers. That's how Marvel movies roll.
We had fun and then grabbed lunch at Sonic to take home. Cheap date - $30 Dang - olden days that would have been $20.
