When Peter Frampton's third marriage ended, he moved back to Nashville, which is where he lived before that third trip down the aisle landed him in Cincinnati. And having had his own studios before, he built another one there.
It's named Studio Phenix, which is the nickname of his Gibson Les Paul, the one on the cover of Frampton Comes Alive. He calls it that because it was found 30 years after it was thought to have been lost in plane crash, so it's like a Phoenix rising from the ashes.
Frampton recorded his last two albums in the studio -- 2019'sAll Blues, and his new one, Frampton Forgets the Words.
Though it's not open for public tours, he does give you one in a video posted onInstagram.
Among the highlights of the tour is the doorbell, which plays the opening notes to his song "Do You Feel Like We Do"; a guitar he shows that was once owned by Jimi Hendrix; another that belonged to J.J. Cale; and of course the "Phenix."
He also says that Humble Pie was planning to reunite just prior to bassist Greg Ridley's death in 2003. They were going to use a guest vocalist in place of the late Steve Marriott.
