Biography

One of the biggest stars in pop music during the 1970s, Peter Frampton was a singer and guitarist who soared to the heights of the business with his 1976 release, Frampton Comes Alive!. He had come to solo fame after well-regarded stints with The Herd and Humble Pie in his native England, but neither experience could match the pop culture juggernaut that was Alive!, which sold 16 million copies on the strength of listener-friendly rock ballads like "Baby, I Love Your Way" and "Show Me the Way." An accomplishment of such magnitude generated pressure for an even greater follow-up that Frampton was unable to provide, and after a series of high-profile missteps, including an appearance in the ill-fated musical feature "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (1978), he was persona non grata in the rock business. Frampton would spend much of the next two decades rebuilding his career, which never resumed the heights of the Alive! period, but saw its share of high points, most notably a 2007 Grammy for his instrumental album Fingerprints. Throughout this period, Frampton remained a well-regarded pop craftsman whose love for his chosen medium was reflected in every release.
