We have Peter Frampton’s t-shirts

I just love Music City. So we’re at our temporary warehouse today when a woman named Lisa McLaughlin comes in with three cases of t-shirts. From Peter Frampton. Actually, from Peter Frampton.  Not his personal t-shirts, of course. He’s probably still using them. These were three cases of his t-shirts for sale at his concerts.

Lisa is Peter’s merchandise manager. Soundcheck Studios, where many musicians store things, was also a victim of the devastating flood. If you are not a Nashvillian, you may not understand the importance of Soundcheck. It is a massive complex on the banks of the Cumberland that is used for everything from storage of musical instruments to rehearsal space. Everyone from session players to superstars store their equipment and merchandise at Soundcheck so the enormity of this loss is almost impossible to understand.

Peter is set to go on tour in three weeks. Lisa has been spending every waking moment trying to figure out how to get the show on the road, so to speak, with damaged or ruined equipment and merchandise. But she found three boxes of perfectly good t-shirts at Soundcheck and took the time to bring them to CRC for flood victims.

Who wouldn’t want a Peter Frampton t-shirt in the best of times? But in the worst of times, flood victims need clean new clothes. And t-shirts of any description are clean new clothes. So, Peter, it’s not only possible but likely that refugees who barely speak English and don’t know who you are will be wearing your t-shirts. People in Bordeaux, where some of the worst flooding took place, will wonder how it came to be that Peter Frampton t-shirts found their way to a temporary shelter. Homeless people will think it’s absolutely cool that they have a Peter Frampton t-shirt.

Small things make a big impact right now. Lisa’s trip to our temporary warehouse made us just smile today. And her gift will make other people smile tomorrow.

  1. Fampton-T-shirts. How cool. This is awesome. Our home was flooded a few week ago. We live behind the HYSA Soccer field in Bellevue. Would it be possible for us to obtain a couple of the shirts. They look very cool.

  2. I would love to have a Frampton t-shirt. I like the one you’re holding in the photo too. I plan on seeing him in concert at the Wharf on July 31. I hope he will be doing a meet and greet session after the show. I would love for him to sign a photo!

  3. I would love a T-shirt for my Girlfiend and I . We just turned 50 and went to a Peter Frampton concert to celebate!! It was awesome. We went to see him when we where in our teens it was about an hour away and her Dad drove so slow and we missed half of the show. Fun memories!!! Please let me know more about the the shirts. Thanks.
