Frampton had already paid a decade of dues by the time his music reached the masses. He was a member of The Herd before founding Humble Pie with Small Faces frontman Steve Marriot in 1969. He played on George Harrison’s first solo record, All Things Must Pass, before embarking on his own solo career in 1971.
The sound of Frampton’s signature three-pickup Les Paul through a Marshall stack epitomizes arena rock, and, of course, Frampton will forever be associated with the talk box effect. He used it extensively on Frampton Comes Alive!, and can currently be seen using it in a spoof Geico commercial where the good-humored Brit does a great parody of his famous “Do You Feel Like We Do” performance.
Frampton’s most recent release—2006’s Fingerprints—was an entirely instrumental affair that included a clever cover of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” and featured guest appearances by Warren Haynes, Mike McCready (Pear Jam), and master of the Django Reinhardt guitar style, John Jorgenson. Frampton recently teamed up with Robert and Dean DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots to write a batch of new songs. Robert DeLeo told Bass Player that the brothers hope to record with Frampton after the STP reunion tour ends in November.
