Peter Frampton

1950 -

Origin: United Kingdom

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genre: Rock

Guitarist and singer Peter Frampton had his first taste of success at 16 with The Herd. In 1968, he left the band to form Humble Pie with ex-Small Faces leader Steve Marriott. Frampton then launched his solo career with Wind of Change (1972), featuring Ringo Starr and Billy Preston, and hit it big with the 1976 live album Frampton Comes Alive!,  with it introducing a whole new league of fans to his superior guitar skills. The album was an instant smash, but follow up albums failed to break through with audiences. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Frampton recorded and toured with various musicians like David Bowie and Lynyrd Skynyrd. In 1995, he released Frampton Come Alive II, a sequel to his most famous LP. Now came out in 2003, and Thank You Mr. Churchill in 2010.
