After developing an interest in music at an early age, Frampton started taking classical music lessons aged just eight. With early influences including Cliff Richard, Buddy Holly and Jimi Hendrix, the singer-songwriter played in a number of bands in his teens including The Little Ravens, The Trubeats and The Preachers – the latter of which was produced and managed by Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones. After subsequent bands The Herd, The Small Faces and Humble Pie, Frampton went solo in 1971 and released his debut “Winds of Change” in 1972.
Frampton subsequently released the albums “Frampton’s Camel” in 1973 and “Somethin’s Happening” in 1974, during which period the musician developed a devoted following aided by his elaborate and extensive tours. The singer’s breakthrough came with the 1976 live album release “Frampton Comes Alive!”, which showcased a whole catalogue of Frampton’s under-exposed songs, catapulting the energetic singer to superstardom. The double LP shot to the top of the charts and sold over 16 million copies worldwide, becoming the most popular live album ever to be released at that time. Spawning the hits “Baby, I Love Your Way”, “Do You Feel Like We Do” and “Show Me The Way”, the album also led to a multi-million dollar blockbuster tour, up there with the likes of Kiss and Cheap Trick.
Under pressure from his label A&M, Frampton released the rushed album “I’m in You” in 1977. The album performed well in the charts reaching No. 2 and the title track resulted in Frampton’s biggest hit of his career. After his high-profile acting debut in the flop of a film “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, a serious car accident in the Bahamas, the breakdown of his marriage and a slide into drug abuse, Frampton subsequent album “Where I Should Be” (1979) failed to maintain his previous successes.
“Breaking All the Rules” was released in 1981 and marked a haircut for the singer-songwriter, followed the year after with “The Art of Control”. After a period of lying low, Frampton returned with the 1986 album “Premonition” and an appearance on his school friend David Bowie’s album “Never Let Me Down”. Frampton subsequently released “When All the Pieces Fit” in 1989, a self-titled album in 1994, “Frampton Comes Alive II” in 1995, “Now” in 2004, “Fingerprints” in 2006, and his 14th studio album “Thank You Mr. Churchill” in 2010.
