Cedar Rapids, Ia (July 29, 2019)
I don’t ever want to be the guy who goes out there and says, “I’ve got to go out there,” or “I want to go out there,” and I hear people and see people saying, “He’s not as good as he used to be. He’s lost it.”
The British singer and guitarist appeared on CBS This Morning for an interview segment revealing that the impetus for the tour was due to the fact that he has a degenerative muscular disease called inclusion-body myositis. (It’s a) rare and incurable inflammatory condition that causes muscles to weaken slowly. Frampton revealed that he was diagnosed with IBM three and a half years ago after a fall on stage. The piece also touched on his career and music along with also with revealing that Frampton is participating new drug trial in conjunction with Johns Hopkins and has started a charity for research. – Jeffrey Greenblatt
“Basically, I know where it’s going. Unfortunately. But I know where it’s going. There will be a point over the next few years where I won’t be able to play, at least at this level. So that’s not a nice thought, obviously, but being that I’ve learnt so much, and hopefully gained wisdom along the way, I’ll find new things to do.” Peter Frampton with Jeff Slate.
