    Don’t you dare misbehave around Peter Frampton. According to a fan's eyewitness account,Frampton became fed up with two rowdy audience members at a recent performance in Carmel, Indiana and hurled one of their cell phones across the stage. The witness, Melissa Schickel, recounts the story in OnStage magazine of a couple who arrived late, sat in the front row of the venue, and kept taking flash photos of Frampton during his set (despite the venue’s warning not to). Frampton apparently gestured to the couple to stop but they kept taking photos, in addition to drinking and becoming belligerent. Schickel’s account: “Peter ends the song, walks over and with a huge smile on his face bends down and says, ‘Hey can I see that? Can I see the photos you’ve been taking?’ The guy hands him his phone and Peter stands up, spins and flings for the rafters!” According the witness, the audience then erupted into cheers. “With years of experience playing guitar, we just knew he had a great arm,” Schickel said.
