I wonder if Warren will be one of the guest guitar players. Warren played on Peter's last cd and the two seem to enjoy playing together.

Peter Frampton will take a collection of guitarists on tour in the summer under the title of Peter Frampton's Guitar Circus. B.B. King is the first guest signed up for the tour, participating for three weeks in August.

"I'm so honored. I can't wait to speak to him and thank him," Frampton told Billboard. Frampton spoke with Billboard after performing "Baby I Love Your Way" with Terry McDermott on "The Voice."

Frampton intends to tour with the concept throughout the summer, bringing in special guests for various periods of time. The repertoire is undecided at this point, though it will include new material, instrumentals from his Grammy-winning 2006 release "Fingerprints" and "the old favorites," he says. Frampton, who tweeted about the concept earlier this month with no details, will adjust the shows to play up the styles of the guests.

Currently promoting the DVD and CD of the "Frampton Comes Alive" 35th anniversary tour - Eagle Rock released it as "FCA! 35" - Frampton also has a ballet coming up in Cincinnati, Ohio.

It has been a full year since Frampton was reunited with the 1954 Gibson Les Paul guitar he played on "Frampton Comes Alive," which was believed to have been destroyed 30 years ago in a plane crash. It's not only in working order he says, "but I was recording with it this afternoon between dress rehearsals and the show. It's a surreal thing to have it back.

"It was the only electric guitar I had for 10 years -- I couldn't afford to have multiples. It was all I played; it's a very important guitar to me."

Personally I hope not. I would rather see the Mule on the road in the summer and or an ABB run. I think Warren is too big and too talented to be a backing guitarist for Peter Frampton. I like Frampton but I am sure he can find some other good guitarists to play with him. Just my opinion.

Personally, I think Frampton's a heckuva player! I'll go see this show if it passes thru/near my burg.

I'm with you all, Where's my Mule. The only reason I'm wondering is Warren played on Peter's 2006 cd Fingerprints. It won a Grammy. It's a guitar instrumental album where Frampton got a bunch of guest players and with Warren being one of the guests on the record I'm thinking Peter will try to get the guests from the cd to go out and play some shows with him. I wouldn't mind if Warren did just 4 or 5 shows for a week or so.





Fingerprints Review:

Def Leppard did it with Yeah!. Ozzy Osbourne did it with Under Cover.
Peter Frampton is doing it with Fingerprints.

"It" is artists recording albums that are tributes to other artists whose music has influenced them. Frampton took it a step further and invited some of those artists to join him on the album.

Fingerprints is "the album Iíve been waiting my entire life to make," Frampton said when the album was announced. "I wanted to play with people from all over the world, and I wanted to make the selections as diverse as possible."

Did he succeed? Oh, yeah. Styles range from rock to swing to r&b, blues, and country. Guest players include present and former (respectively) Rolling Stones Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman; Pearl Jamís Matt Cameron and Mike McCready; original members of The Shadows, Hank Marvin and Brian Bennett; Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Govít Mule).

The guest list also includes well-known session guitarists Paul Franklin and John Jorgenson, and Courtney Pine on saxophone. Frequent co-writer (and the album's co-producer) Gordon Kennedy is featured, along with Frampton's regular band-mates, John Regan on bass, Arthur Stead on keyboards, and Shawn Fichter on drums.

The More Things Change ...


Unlike the Def Leppard and Osbourne albums, the songs on Fingerprints are not covers. Frampton wrote three of the songs and collaborated on all but two of the others. The "talk box" effect which many people associate so closely with Frampton (although he hasnít really used it all that much) is used just enough on this album to remind us of that association.

In many ways, Frampton has come a long way since his days with Humble Pie and The Herd in the 60s. He remains, however, a guitaristís guitarist: original, innovative, fresh.

Fingerprints isnít the kind of album you have to devote a lot of attention to in order to enjoy. That doesnít mean that itís background music. It is catchy without being intrusive. It is memorable, though probably not what youíll hum in the shower.

You Frampton fans will have to have the album to keep your collection current. Those of you who just appreciate good music, regardless of who performs it, could do a lot worse than adding Fingerprints to your playlists.

I'd like to see him too, w/ or w/o Warren. Never have, save for a Beacon sit-in.

Really sorry I missed Frampton at the Chicago Theatre this year...... saw him at Milwaukee Summerfest a few years ago and he was really good.

I like his playing on Black Hole Sun - to me it is similar to Beck doing a Day in the Life - it is an instrumental, but it is almost like the guitar is singing the words - you hear the words without anyone singing them..........

x3.....Bring on a full fledged Mule tour along with a new Mule album. If anything add Frampton to this year's Mt. Jam line-up (not as a headliner mind you) and Warren can sit-in for a tune or two.

Now that sounds great!!! A nice Frampton set at Mountain Jam with Warren sitting in would do the trick for me. I love Frampton. I just don't want to see Warren as his backing guitar player that's all. I have nothing against sit ins.

Have no fear everyone. Frampton will have guest guitarists throughout the tour but many will be one-nighters so you can have some Warren/Peter and still get the Mule.

Many of the guests will be based on region, touring schedules coinciding and obviously availability.

I am sure both guys would enjoy getting together again but Warren will only be a part of it if available.

Which is why Frampton in the Mt. Jam line-up is perfect if schedules allow.....I'm thinking Saturday afternoon about 4:00 PM on the main stage.....Just before Tedeschi/Trucks Band.
