Trey Anastasio
The song may have been in the band's repertoire since Halloween of 1998, but on Sunday night Phish opened their show at Hartford, Connecticut's XL Center with a bittersweet, yet rousing rendition of the Velvet Underground's "Rock & Roll" in tribute to late music legend Lou Reed.

Reed passed away earlier in the day due to complications stemming from a liver transplant he had back in May.

Following the eleven-and-a-half-minute epic, frontman Trey Anastasio asked the crowd for a moment of silence for "one of the greatest artists who's ever lived."

Prior to the show Anastasio posted a tribut...

"This is the album I've been waiting my entire life to make," says Peter Frampton of his remarkable new CD, Fingerprints. It's an impressive 14-tune collection of guitar mastery that crosses several musical borders, from funked-up R&B to razor-edged rockers to rootsy blues to country-flamed beauties to jazzy Django swing to reflective impressionism. And, on the disc, in what may come as a surprise to longtime fans, Frampton begs off singing to focus exclusively on the six-string.

"I've never done a complete collection of instrumentals," the Britain-born, Cincinnati-based Frampton says....
