“These ten covers not only spotlight Frampton’s superb guitar prowess, but also prove how diverse his influences are.”

“…10 instrumental covers intended to remind us that Frampton is one hell of a guitar player.”

Frampton Forgets the Words is a grab-bag of 10 covers of rock songs that just plain move Frampton, and he imbues every lick and line of tunes by Radiohead (‘Reckoner’), Roxy Music (‘Avalon’) Lenny Kravitz (‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’) and other legacy artists with deep feeling and panache.”

“Peter Frampton lets his guitar do the talking”

Frampton Forgets the Words is co-produced by Frampton and Chuck Ainlay and was  recorded/mixed at Frampton’s own Studio Phenix in Nashville. With his storied 1954 Les Paul Phenix—which was lost in a plane crash in 1980 and recovered more than 30 years later—Frampton brings virtuosic guitar playing to songs including David Bowie’s “Loving The Alien,” George Harrison’s “Isn’t It A Pity,” Roxy Music’s “Avalon,” Radiohead’s “Reckoner,” and more.

Peter Frampton is among the most celebrated guitarists in rock history. At 18, he co-founded one of the first supergroups, Humble Pie. By 22, he was touring incessantly and making use of the talk box which would become his signature guitar effect. He’s collaborated with such legendary artists as George Harrison, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis and Ringo Starr, among many others, and has toured with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Greg Allman, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cheap Trick, and the Steve Miller Band. In 2014 he was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame.

His 2019 album All Blues (UMe), was #1 for fifteen weeks on Billboard’s Blues Chart, and his autobiography Do You Feel Like I Do?: A Memoirreleased last October via Hachette Books, debuted on The New York Times Bestsellers list. His 1976 album, Frampton Comes Alive!remains one of the top-selling live records of all time and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame last year.
