Grammy-winning guitarist Peter Frampton is one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history.
At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, Frampton co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie.
His collaborations in recording sessions and live performances range from such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Dion, Hank Marvin, Ringo Starr, B.B. King, Mike McCready & Matt Cameron (Pearl Jam), Buddy Guy, Steve Miller and many others.
Frampton’s relevancy has not waned in the least over the years. He worked closely with Cameron Crowe on his Oscar winning film, Almost Famous, as a technical advisor, writing music for the fictional band Stillwater and even making a cameo as Humble Pie’s road manager. In 2007, Frampton won a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album for Fingerprints and in 2014 was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame. He received the prestigious Les Paul Innovation Award from NAMM’s TEC Awards in 2019 and his album All Blues was #1 for fifteen weeks on Billboard’s Blues Chart. In 2020 Frampton was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, his autobiography Do You Feel Like I Do?: A Memoir debuted on The New York Times Bestsellers list, and his 2021 album Frampton Forgets The Words was released to widespread critical acclaim. In November of last year, Frampton performed a sold-out show at London’s Royal Albert Hall which was filmed and is currently airing on PBS as part of their Pledge Drive. Most recently, Frampton announced that on July 28 Intervention Records will release Frampton@50, a numbered limited-edition vinyl box set featuring Frampton’s essential 1972-1975 studio releases Wind of Change, Frampton’s Camel and Frampton.
After 46 years, Frampton Comes Alive! remains one of the top-selling live records of all time selling over 17 million worldwide.
