"I spent part of my Summer gearing up for the launch of my memoir, DO YOU FEEL LIKE I DO?, by pre-signing copies for Barnes & Noble and Premiere Collectibles. You can go to PeterFramptonBook.com to pre-order a copy while they last!"
Mine should be in the pile somewhere!
I couldn't agree more!What’s not to like about Peter Frampton? Great catalogue of music, tremendous player and performer - my buddy met him down in the Cayman Islands about 10-15 years ago - super cool guy who talked to him at length about music, etc.
Hey Ray,Pre-ordered the audio book...
Thanks for letting me know
Nice to read from you again! Hope all is well!
My sister, who follows Frampton (amongst others) on FB and Instagram) just sent me this yesterday:

A revelatory memoir by rock icon and legendary guitarist Peter Frampton.
Do You Feel Like I Do? is the incredible story of Peter Frampton's positively resilient life and career told in his own words for the first time. His monumental album Frampton Comes Alive! spawned three top-20singles and sold eight million copies the year it was released (more than 17 million to date), and it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in January 2020.
Frampton was on a path to stardom from an early age, first as the lead singer and guitarist of the Herd and then as cofounder - along with Steve Marriott - of one of the first supergroups, Humble Pie. Frampton was part of a tight-knit collective of British '60s musicians with close ties to the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and the Who. This led to Frampton playing on George Harrison's solo debut, All Things Must Pass, as well as to Ringo Starr and Billy Preston appearing on Frampton's own solo debut. By age 22, Frampton was touring incessantly and finding new sounds with the talk box, which would become his signature guitar effect.
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 unshakable bond. Frampton also shares fascinating stories of his collaborative work with Harry Nilsson, Stevie Wonder, B. B. King, and members of Pearl Jam. He reveals both the blessing and curse of Frampton Comes Alive!, opening up about becoming the cover boy he never wanted to be, his overcoming substance abuse, and how he has continued to play and pour his heart into his music despite an inflammatory muscle disease and his retirement from the road.
Peppered throughout his narrative is the story of his favorite guitar, the Phenix, which he thought he'd lost in a fiery plane crash in 1980. But in 2011, it mysteriously showed up again - saved from the wreckage. Frampton tells of that unlikely reunion here in full for the first time and why the miraculous reappearance is emblematic of his life and career as a quintessential artist.

Was just coming here to post it and I saw your post about it.
Even though I ordered the book, I'm thinking about ordering this too. Are there any special requirements you need, like a "Kindle" or something?
Thanks for the post Ray and
REALLY! LOL!I follow him in FB and Insta, but not Twitter. I saw this post and listened to him tell a story from the book, for the audio book. It was a bit shocking. Turns out two members of The Who, Keith and John, held Peter out a window by the ankles, four stories above the ground. Glad they didn't drop him.
Got mine a couple of days ago and downloaded it (naturally). I've seen the band play it live a number of times and this is a good one!Just submitted mine too. We'll see.
BTW, I spent some significant time adjusting the 3 PUPs on my Frampton LP. Got it sounding great with the stock PUPs.
