Peter Frampton

Peter Frampton (born April 22, 1950) is a British musician, best known today for his solo work in the mid-1970s. He originally became famous, however, as a member of the Herd and became a teen idol in Britain. He then worked with Steve Marriott (of the Small Faces) in Humble Pie, as well as on albums by Harry Nilsson and George Harrison. His solo debut was 1972's Wind of Change.

Frampton's solo breakthrough was the six-times platinum Frampton Comes Alive (1976), which included "Do You Feel Like We Do", "Baby, I Love Your Way" and "Show Me the Way". After his follow-up, I'm in You, was released, Frampton was involved in a serious car crash in the Bahamas. Upon his recovery, Frampton played a part in the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band film, which failed spectacularly. In the 1980s, Frampton returned to recording, though he has never been able to top the charts since. His latest album is Live in Detroit, released in 2000.
