Monday, January 20, 2014
Alec Baldwin talks with two English musicians about their commercial and critical success, and its impact on their lives and work.
Alec first talks with Grammy-winning singer/songwriter and guitar virtuoso Peter Frampton about his roots and the extraordinary success of Frampton Comes Alive, one of the biggest selling records of all time. “I don’t think anybody can be ready for that kind of success,” explains Frampton. Peter Frampton recently completed a 35th anniversary tour of Frampton Comes Alive.
Alec also sits down with Thom Yorke, the controversial frontman for the band Radiohead, who after 25 years in the business admits that performing is “either wicked fun or really awful.” Yorke tells Alec how he prepares for a performance and reveals why he doesn’t tour more. He also discusses the evolution of his recent side project, Atoms for Peace.
