Peter Frampton Documentary In The Works
Peter Frampton has revealed a career-spanning documentary is in the works. Frampton, who just played his final farewell dates in Europe, published his memoir Do You Feel Like I Do? back in 2020, has been forced to slowly quit the road upon discovering he’s suffering from a degenerative muscle disease called Inclusion-Body Myositus (IBM), that slowly weakens the body’s muscles.
Frampton, who’s now 72, shed light on the new project to Classic Rock, explaining, “We are in the process of making a documentary. Covid messed with us, obviously. We stopped, and now we’re waiting for the final funding to be able to continue. There was a rush on music documentaries and it kind of slowed down.”
When pressed about a possible biopic based on his memoir, Frampton said, “I haven’t been approached to do a biopic. I think it’s a story that’s been told before. But I might be wrong. If they ever do, I hope that Cameron (Crowe) would direct it. He knows me so well.”
Back in 2000, Peter Frampton was the subject of a pretty revealing episode of VH1’s Behind The Music. We asked him a while back what he made of the experience: “It’s painful! I mean, you know that they’re gonna go for stuff that you really don’t wanna talk about — because I prefer to talk about, obviously, the nice things (laughs), the good things — but everybody has valleys and peaks in careers.”
