Peter Frampton – Rockers Too Sexy For Their Own Good
Peter Frampton may very well be one of the most underrated guitar players in the rock idiom. He began his career as the lead singer of a one-hit pop band called the Herd, but proved his instrumental chops in Humble Pie before he became one of the most in-demand session guitarists in rock music.
His early solo albums were critically acclaimed, but after the record-shattering success of 'Frampton Comes Alive!' he made a key error by posing shirtless for the cover of Rolling Stone. His commercial fortunes slipped thereafter, but Frampton got the last laugh -- shirt firmly in place, he won a Grammy in 2007 for his all-instrumental album 'Fingerprints.'
