Peter Frampton remains one of the most lauded artists in rock history. The Music Business Association just presented him with the Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement at the Awards & Hall of Fame Dinner that is part of the Association’s annual conference—Music Biz 2019. Frampton was also recently honored with the Les Paul Innovation Award at the 2019 NAMM Show’s 34th annual TEC Awards, and celebrated the 43rd anniversary of his fifth solo album, ‘Frampton Comes Alive!’, one of the top-selling live records of all time (over 17 million copies sold worldwide).
Frampton will retire from regular vigorous touring at the end of this year due to his diagnosis of the autoimmune disease Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM). IBM is a progressive muscle disorder characterized by muscle inflammation, weakness and atrophy. The tour will feature the Peter Frampton Band, plus Steve Mackey on bass.
Not one to rest, Frampton recently released a new album, ‘All Blues’ earlier this year. The record, which features Frampton and his longtime touring band made up of Adam Lester (guitar/vocals), Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums) putting their spin on some of Frampton’s favorite blues classics like “Can’t Judge A Book By Its Cover,” “She Caught The Katy,” “The Thrill Is Gone,” “I Just Want To Make Love To You,” and “Georgia On My Mind,” continues to receive widespread critical acclaim:.
Frampton is best known for such hits as “Breaking All the Rules, “Show Me the Way,” “Baby, I Love Your Way,” “Do You Feel Like We Do,” and “I’m in You.” which remain staples on classic rock radio. He has also appeared as himself in television shows such as The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Madam Secretary. Frampton is known for his work not only as an acclaimed guitar player, particularly with a talk box and his voice.
HEY! Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Can we got this guy inducted?
A lot of talented children have probably been asked by a parent to entertain family and friends, maybe in the living room, maybe sing a little, play an instrument. No big deal and a good way to get used to performing for others. But when Jason Bonham was a small child and got called in to entertain, the family friends he played his drums for could be anyone from Jimmy Page to some of the guys from the group Bad Company. That’s what happens when your father is drummer John Bonham, one of the original members of the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin.
At the age of only five, Jason could play the drums, at least a scaled-down set of them, with skill. When he was 17 he was a member of the band Air Race. The group signed a record contract with Atlantic Records, recorded one album, and opened for big names like Queen, Meat Loaf, Ted Nugent, and AC/DC. John Bonham died in 1980, but Jason, who has marked a few places in music history himself, has stepped in from time to time to help keep his father’s memory alive.
