Peter Frampton

Peter Kenneth Frampton (born 22 April 1950) is an English-born rock musician, singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist. He was previously associated with the bands Humble Pie and The Herd. At the end of his 'group' career was Frampton's international breakthrough album his live release, Frampton Comes Alive! The album sold more than 8 million copies in the United States alone and spawned several hits. Since then he has released several major albums. He has also worked with David Bowie and both Matt Cameron and Mike McCready from Pearl Jam, among others.

Frampton is best known for such hits as "Breaking All the Rules", "Show Me the Way", "Baby, I Love Your Way", "Do You Feel Like We Do", and "I'm in You", which remain staples on classic rock radio. He has also appeared as himself in television shows such as The Simpsons and Family Guy. Frampton is known for his work as a guitar player and particularly with a Talkbox and his tenor voice

Frampton has been married three times and has three children. His first marriage was to Mary Lovett, from 1972 to 1976. He was sued by Penelope J. "Penny" McCall in 1978 for palimony. McCall asked for half of Frampton's earnings during the five years that they were together. According to McCall, she gave up her job as a rock promoter and devoted herself full-time to Frampton, right at the time that he achieved superstar status. A New York judge ruled that Frampton and McCall never intended to marry each other and "never held themselves out to the public as husband and wife" and dismissed her complaint on the grounds that to act otherwise would condone adultery. The case set precedent in New York.

In June 1978, Frampton was involved in a near-fatal car accident in the Bahamas and suffered multiple broken bones, a concussion, and muscle damage. Dealing with the pain of the accident led to a brief period of drug abuse.

From 1983 to 1993, Frampton was married to Barbara Gold, with whom he had two children named Jade and Julian. The latter co-wrote and sang on Frampton's song "Road to the Sun" from Thank You Mr. Churchill. His third marriage was to Tina Elfers on 13 January 1996, with whom he had a daughter, actress Mia Frampton, and a step-daughter named Tiffany Wiest. Frampton filed for divorce from Elfers in Los Angeles, Californiaon 22 June 2011, citing irreconcilable differences.

Frampton has lived in London and various U.S. locations, including Westchester County, New York; Los Angeles, California; and Nashville, Tennessee. He moved to Indian Hill, Ohio in June 2000. This is the birthplace of his ex-wife Elfers and the city in which they were married in 1996. They chose to live there to be closer to Elfers' family. He currently lives in Nashville.[48]
Frampton cites the September 11 attacks as his reason for becoming a U.S. citizen and seeking the right to vote. He is a strict vegetarian.
