Peter Frampton - Peter Frampton Became U.s. Citizen After 9/11

British-born singer Peter Frampton has credited the events of 9/11 with inspiring him to apply for U.S. citizenship, insisting he felt "very patriotic" after the tragedy.
The Baby, I Love Your Way hitmaker moved to the U.S. in the 1970s but admits it was only after seeing the country unite in the aftermath of the terror attacks that he felt compelled to become a citizen.
He tells Parade magazine, "I have lived virtually as an American since 1975 - I had a green card, and I've paid taxes. I was starting to become a little more politically aware, and I meant to do it earlier.
"When 9/11 happened, I called my lawyer and said, 'Let's do it. I need to vote.' I felt very patriotic that day."
