Quote of the Day (Peter Frampton, on the Longevity of Pop Stars vs. Musicians)

“I’ve learned this—it’s my little bit of wisdom: a pop star’s career lasts about eighteen months. Your fans grow into you, and then they grow out of you and they’re on to something else. But a musician’s career is a lifetime.”—Rock star Peter Frampton, reflecting on his extraordinarily successful LP Frampton Comes Alive and the 40 years since, quoted in John Seabrook, “Sic Transit Dept.: Life After Life,” The New Yorker, March 14, 2016
