Who is tyrese dating now in 2016
“Everyone in the band, we all liked Aston Martins,” he says.
“Steve Marriott and I loved Aston Martins, and I’m sure that we were dragged into it from James Bond, but that really wasn’t it. “This is the price of cars back then—this was a 1965 Aston Martin custom car, it was four years old, and I paid less than ,000 pounds for it.
“I would go to my girlfriend’s house in that car, she lived about 15 minutes away,” he says. 1967 was probably when I first made some money with The Herd from the hit records.
When we went to gigs and everything, there was band transportation.”Frampton laughs when he describes the Morris Minor as a “disgusting car,” which is what made him eventually get rid of it.
“I’m overdue for a road trip, that’s for sure, especially with my new car and I’m also thinking about—I’d like to be able to get taught how to drive the car, so I can be allowed on a track because the thing is so powerful that I’ve got to blow it out one day,” he says. ”Frampton is going on a full summer tour with Steve Miller Band, starting June 15 in New Jersey and ending in California in August.
“I would love to get an advanced driving course and to be taught by someone that knows how to drive really fast, safely.”Some car owners are precious with their beloved new cars, especially ones on the level of an AMG built for him from Germany, but Frampton is looking forward to tracking it. “I’ve toured with Steve since the early ‘70s,” Frampton says.
Frampton grew up in South London, where he learned to drive in 1967. I keep thinking things that I did like six, seven years ago, and it’s 15 years ago,” he says.
I only drove my parents’ car long enough to pass the test, and bingo, I was off to look for my own car.”Frampton bought a used, or what he refers to as “ancient” early 1960’s Morris Minor 1000 for 30 pounds.
He used the car to properly practice driving after getting his license.
He hopes to take it on his favorite road trip at some point, as well as letting it see some track time.
Frampton hasn’t found anything he dislikes about the S63 yet. “I have an old Mercedes wagon E500 that I use as my van now, which I love, too. Obviously it’s completely different than the S63, but again, it’s a phenomenal drive.” He says the wagon is probably a 2006 model year. “When I go to people’s houses, I bring my guitars and amps,” he says.
