Peter Frampton is earning raves for his newly published autobiography, Do You Feel Like I Do? In addition to chronicling his entire life and career — he also spoke in depth one of several projects he’s currently working on.
Frampton is currently working on an instrumental covers collection, which includes the Grammy-winning guitarist’s takes on Lenny Kravitz’ “Are You Gonna Go My Way?,” Radiohead’s “Reckoner,” George Harrison’s “Isn’t It A Pity,” Roxy Music’s “Avalon” and Jaco Pastorious’ “Dreamland.” No release date for the new set has been announced.
