Peter Frampton Forgets the Words pt 2

In the conclusion to my all-new interview focusing on his brilliant all-instrumental album "Frampton Forgets the Words",  delightful conversationalist Peter Frampton picks one of my favorite Stevie Wonder chestnuts to interpret, "I Don't Know Why", and explains to us how Motown, "The Sound of Young America", was in fact even bigger in his home country the UK than here; rocks out with his band on Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way"; reveals his lifelong brotherly love for David Bowie; and much more in this part two.

When Peter Frampton announced in 2019 that his diagnosis with a progressive neuromuscular disease would necessitate his final goodbye tour then, no one was more concerned than me.

Peter Frampton- Shine On Early Best

The sub-title of this classic rock interview should probably be "Frampton Barely Survives". Everybody knows that young Englishman Peter Frampton revolutionized the recording industry in early 1976 with his live double set  "Frampton Comes Alive". But where did those now-iconic songs like "Show Me the Way", "Lines on My Face", "Baby I Love Your Way", "All I Want to Be (Is By Your Side)", and "Do You Feel Like We Do" originally come from? Peter joins me In the Studio to trace the days after he left Humble Pie, his struggles with four solid but woefully under-exposed solo studio albums, his phenomenal transformation into pop superstardom with the live album, and the tumultuous years immediately afterward trying to survive it all.

Way way back to even the eponymous Humble Pie  album in 1969 when barely out of his teens, I thought that Peter Frampton's lyrical, almost jazzy lead guitar figures set him apart from so many of his less imaginative peers, and it has been…
