Rocker Peter Frampton has paid tribute to his late drummer, JOHN SIOMOS,
who died last month (JAN04).
Siomos provided the beats on Frampton's classic album FRAMPTON COMES
ALIVE. He died at his home in Brooklyn, New York, on 16 January (04).
Sad Frampton says, "We played together from 1972 until 1977. It was the
pinnacle of the Frampton Comes Alive success. John Siomos to me was like JOHN
BONHAM was to Jimmy Page, because John Bonham was one of the world's greatest
rock drummers in
"He and I were so well-suited; it was like a hand-in-glove situation for
my music and his drumming. He was a very inventive player."
Siomos also worked with such artists as Carly Simon and Todd Rundgren.
