Peter Frampton will publish his long awaited memoir, titled, Do You Feel Like I Do? on October 20th. Frampton, who's been working on the tome for several years has tapped noted journalist Alan Light to co-write the book. Frampton, who's now 70, will play a final string of European dates this spring before retiring from the road. Frampton, who wrapped an exhaustive North American trek back in October, has been forced to quit touring upon discovering he's suffering from a degenerative muscle disease called Inclusion-Body Myositus (IBM), that slowly weakens the body's muscles.
Frampton spoke about the upcoming memoir in a press release, which reads in part:
This is my journey. All I ever wanted to do was play guitar and it’s taken me many different places — physically and mentally. I’ve been to the moon and back without a rocket, but also to the depths of despair. You never stop paying your dues. Failure has been my greatest inspiration. I brush myself off and then I want to 'do it again.' Do You Feel Like I Do?
