Rock legend Peter Frampton recalls in the recent issue of Uncut music magazine a moment when R2-D2 became his guitar tech.
Latest issue of UNCUT:
Madison Square Garden – New York – 1977. R2-D2 bringing me my guitar for the encore. It was not sanctioned by Mr. Lucas… we got into trouble for that! But this guy who built it brought it to the show, and the crew had this great idea of sending it out with my guitar.
I didn’t know it was coming, as you can see by my bemused expression. They’d got all the R2-D2 noises working. But we got a call from the Lucas organization telling us to cease and desist.
Thanks for the tip, Dave Iskra.
