(hennemusic) Last Saturday night at New York's Beacon Theatre was a magical one for Peter Frampton.

The guitarist was reunited on stage - for the first time in more than three decades with his prized Gibson Les Paul guitar, originally lost in a cargo plane crash in 1980.

Some dicey career moves brought the guitarist back down to earth, and he was forced to rebuild his profile one step at a time.

Along the way, a 1980 cargo plane crash in Caracas, Venezuela took his beloved guitar away, and Frampton pressed on. Read more and watch video here.
