Reformed drug abuser and, more importantly, reformed teen idol Peter Frampton is making this clothing-store concert appearance alongside chain-smoking comic and actor Denis Leary to benefit Road Recovery, whose mission is to keep young musicians off drugs. Considering the fact that CBGB once stood where John Varvatos has set up a clothing shop (would Joey Ramone c. 1977 pay $200 or more for jeans?), an appearance here by the "Show Me the Way" talking-guitar dude is a bit like burying your cat in the Pet Sematary: "Sometimes dead is better." At least it's for a good cause.
