On the heels of his recently released New York Times Best Selling memoir, the rock n’ roll legend and Grammy winning artist Peter Frampton turns his focus back to music with his new studio album Frampton Forgets The Words. With his 1954 Les Paul Phenix, Frampton brings virtuosic guitar playing to 10 instrumental tributes to his favorite songs including “Isn't It A Pity” by George Harrison, “Reckoner” by Radiohead, “Loving The Alien” by David Bowie, and more. Frampton Forgets the Words was co‐produced by Frampton and Chuck Ainlay and was recorded/mixed at Frampton’s own Studio Phenix in Nashville. With his infamous 1954 Les Paul Phenix—which was lost in a plane crash in 1980 and recovered more than 30 years later— Frampton brings virtuosic guitar playing to songs by David Bowie, George Harrison, Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz and more. Frampton notes, “This album is a collection of ten of my favorite pieces of music. My guitar is also a voice and I have alwaysenjoyed playing my favorite vocal lines that we all know and love. These tracks are my great band and me paying tribute to the original creators of this wonderful music. So much fun to do and I really hope you enjoy it too.” Peter Frampton is among the most celebrated guitarists in rock history. At 18, he co‐founded one of the first supergroups, Humble Pie. By 22, he was touring incessantly and making use of the talk box which would become his signature guitar effect. He’s collaborated with such legendary artists as George Harrison, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis and Ringo Starr, among many others, and has toured with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Greg Allman, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cheap Trick, and the Steve Miller Band. In 2014 he was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame.
