Peter Frampton, who’s currently on the road, credits his 2006 Grammy Award winning instrumental collection, Fingerprints, for regaining his street cred in the business. Frampton’s current “Guitar Circus” summer tour will include appearances by such legends as B.B. King, Stax legend, Steve Cropper, the Byrds’ Roger McGuinn, ex-Eagle Don Felder, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Toto’s Steve Lukather, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Vince Gill, Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo, Stone Temple Pilots’ Dean DeLeo, John Jorgenson, Living Colour’s Vernon Reid, Richard Thompson, and UFO’s Vinnie Moore.

Frampton says Fingerprints, which earned him the “Best Instrumental Album” Grammy, solidified himself to both his peers and the public — once and for all — as a musician first: “Fingerprints is a huge milestone for me and helped me inordinately accept my career before, for what’s it’s worth, for what I did, because it was the first iota of — well more than that — but it was the first independent success I had had that had nothing to do with Comes Alive whatsoever. It’s me, the musician, playing an instrumental record.”
