Peter Frampton

British music fans first fell in love with Peter Frampton in the 1960s as a member of the Herd and Humble Pie. His greatest success on all shores wouldn’t come until the following decade, however, mainly from one of the best-selling live albums in music history.

Indeed, 1976’s blockbuster Frampton Comes Alive! delivered the perfect fusion of furious fret work and innovative “talk box” effects, yielding the singles “Show Me the Way,” “Baby, I Love Your Way,” and “Do You Feel Like We Do.” Though his career took a detour in 1978 after starring alongside the Bee Gees in the poorly received Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band film adaptation, Frampton got back on track by the late ’80s thanks in part to a tour with former schoolmate David Bowie.

From then until now, this guitar god has been a fixture of the classic rock concert circuit and continues recording fairly regularly. He’s also stayed in the public eye by embracing pop culture, appearing on The Simpsons, Family Guy, countless commercials, as well as movie cameos in Blues Brothers 2000 and Almost Famous.
