Released Friday, Acoustic Classics is Peter Frampton's latest album, featuring acoustic-guitar versions of some of his best-known songs. In this session for World Cafe, hear Frampton perform a few of those songs live and speak with host David Dye about his career. Along the way, he touches on the success of Frampton Comes Alive! in 1976 and reminisces about David Bowie, with whom he was friends in secondary school — and who was a student of Frampton's father, an art teacher.
