Peter Frampton

Peter Frampton (born April 22, 1950) is an English guitarist and singer who released a string of 1966–68 singles in beat combo The Herd, including the freakbeat rubbles “From the Underworld,” “Mixed Up Minds,” “I Can Fly,” and “Sunshine Cottage.” In 1969, he embarked on a five-album stint in blues-rockers Humble Pie with ex-Small Faces guitarist/singer Steve Marriott.

Frampton went solo with the 1972 A&M release Wind of Change, followed by Frampton’s Camel and the concert staples “Do You Feel Like We Do” and “Lines On My Face.” His fourth album, Frampton, contains the original versions of his twin signatures “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Show Me the Way,” both made famous on his mega-selling live double-album Frampton Comes Alive!  His next album, I’m In You, features the popular title ballad (covered by Bob James and Grover Washington Jr.) and “Putting My Heart On the Line” (covered by Elkie Brooks).

After appearing with the Bee Gees in the 1978 movie adaptation of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Frampton cut three more albums on A&M, culminating with his 1982 modern-rock release The Art of Control.
