You know it, but you can hardly believe it. The guy playing bass guitar, right in front of your eyes, in church, is a rock star, a real one, with the platinum albums to prove it.

Stan Sheldon played on the 1976 iconic “Frampton Comes Alive!” album that sold more than six million copies, and he recently reconnected with his old colleague Peter Frampton on a new album that won a Grammy.

He’s toured the world with Frampton and Warren Zevon and has added his bass beat to recordings with famous artists for more than 30 years.
