PETER FRAMPTON’S DO YOU FEEL LIKE I DO?: A MEMOIR OUT NOW

Do You Feel Like I Do?: A Memoir, the story of Peter Frampton’s life and career told in his own words for the first time, is out today via Hachette Books. The book, written with acclaimed music journalist Alan Light, is available in hardcover, e-book, and audio formats.

Yesterday, Frampton spoke with CBS This Morning’s Anthony Mason about the memoir, watch here. And he caught up with TODAY Show’s Al Roker this morning, watch here.

In his memoir, Frampton shares stories of his diverse collaborative work and reveals both the blessing and curse of Frampton Comes Alive!, his breakout 1976 live album that spawned three top-20 singles and sold 8 million copies the year it was released (over 17 million to date). He opens up about his experience grappling with fame at a young age and how he continues to play despite an inflammatory muscle disease. Woven throughout is the story of his favorite guitar, which he thought he’d lost in a plane crash in 1980 but reappeared in 2011, saved from the wreckage.

Frampton remembers his enduring friendship with David Bowie. Growing up as schoolmates, crossing paths throughout their careers, and playing together on the Glass Spider Tour, the two developed an unshakeable bond. Frampton also shares stories of his work with George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, Stevie Wonder, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Wyman, Ringo Starr, and members of Pearl Jam.
