VIDEO: Peter Frampton covers JJ Cale classic at Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute

Peter Frampton performs the JJ Cale classic, “Call Me The Breeze”, on the July 24 release of “One More For The Fans”, a 2CD/DVD set featuring highlights from an all-star tribute concert to Lynyrd Skynyrd held at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta last November.

Originally recorded by Cale in 1972, Skynyrd covered the tune on their 1974 album, “Second Helping.” The record peaked at No. 12 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 2 million in the States alone.

"We've known each other on a very close level," Frampton tells Billboard. "We've known each other through thick and thin, literally. We've played many, many concerts together. And we went through their (1977) air disaster together because my crew was off the road with me and had joined Lynyrd Skynyrd for that tour.

“It's just always been a pleasure to do anything with them, and I enjoyed the whole experience of doing that tribute show. It was much more of a family experience for me, that whole day."

Frampton was just one of several guests to perform at the 2014 event, which saw performances by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Trace Adkins, Alabama, Gregg Allman, Blackberry Smoke, Charlie Daniels, Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt and many more.

Other previews from the forthcoming package include “Free Bird”, the rare track “Travelin’ Man”, and a Cheap Trick cover of “Gimme Back My Bullets.”

As part of the campaign to save the Fox Theatre from demolition, Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded their 1976 live album, “One More From The Road”, at the landmark theatre; the title of the tribute concert and release was inspired by that legendary album’s title.

AXS TV will premiere “Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More For The Fans” on Sunday, July 19 at 8:00pm EST / 5:00pm PST.
