GRAMMY AWARD winning Peter Kenneth Frampton (born 22 April
1950) is an English-American musician and songwriter who rose to prominence as a
member of the rock bands Humble Pie and the Herd.
In early 1965, Peter Frampton formed the pop band The Herd with Andy Bown, keyboards, Gary Taylor, bass, Andrew Steele, drums. After Parlophone dropped them after flop singles, they signed to Fontana, where songwriters Howard and Blaikley orchestrated a blend of pop and flower power. Their second single 'From The Underworld' reached no. 6 with help from pirate radio, followed by similar 'Paradise
Lost', no. 15 early '68.

Billy Preston, Klaus Voorman,
He formed Camel (which became Frampton's Camel, because of Peter Bardens' Camel) for live work, with Mike Kellie (ex-Spooky Tooth), drums, Rick Wills (ex-Cochise), bass, keyboardist Mickey Gallagher. Early music was high on melody, low on lyrical content. But the band toured widely, making a basis for future success.

He has released several albums, including his breakthrough album, the live
release Frampton Comes Alive! (1976), which spawned several hit singles
and has earned 8× Platinum by the RIAA in the United States.
