Happy Birthday to Peter Frampton, who turns 63 today (April 22nd) Frampton first made his mark in the Britain in the late 1960’s with the pop group the Herd, and then later as part of the hard rocking Humble Pie with co-founder Steve Marriott. Frampton left Humble Pie in late 1971 to go solo, and released four moderate selling solo albums before releasing his 1976 blockbuster double album Frampton Comes Alive! The album propelled Frampton into superstardom with its hit singles “Show Me The Way,” “Baby, I Love Your Way,” and “Do You Feel Like We Do.”

Frampton’s first dates of 2013 will be in collaboration with the Cincinnati Ballet. The season closer at the Aronoff Center For The Arts will feature Frampton playing as the dance troupe performs — with the three shows set to feature the world premiere a newly written Frampton tune for the occasion. Frampton is set to perform a matinee and evening show on April 26th and an evening show on April 27th. For more info, log on to:

His upcoming tour, which is being dubbed “Frampton’s Guitar Circus.” includes guest spits by such heavyweights as Robert Cray in May and June, and B.B. King and Sonny Landreth for the August dates.

Recently released is Frampton’s new DVD and Blu-ray disc, FCA 35 Tour: An Evening With Peter Frampton, and its companion triple CD set, Best Of FCA! 35 Tour. The DVD features footage taped at New York City’s Beacon Theater and Milwaukee’s Pabst Theater, with Frampton personally going through the tour’s performances for the best versions of all the songs for the CD — which features his son, Julian Frampton, guesting on two songs.

In 2010, Frampton released his 15th studio album, Thank You Mr. Churchill, which features performances by the Funk Brothers, the Heartbreakers’ Benmont Tench, son Julian Frampton, and Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron. The album was co-produced by his legendary ’70s engineer Chris Kimsey, who after working with Frampton went on to man the boards and co-produce numerous Rolling Stones albums.
