Peter Frampton went on CBS This Morning on Saturday to talk about his diagnosis of inclusion body myositis. The rare muscular disease causes muscle weakness and atrophy. The disease has not yet affected Frampton’s guitar playing, but it is only a matter of time. That is why Frampton has announced a farewell tour for this summer. The tour starts June 18 in Tulsa, and ends October 12 in Concord, California. Frampton told Rolling Stone that he is making a lot of recordings while he can still play. “We are recording like maniacs at my studio in Nashville. We’ve done two albums already,” he shared. “I want to record as much as I can in the shortest space of time. We’re actually working on three projects. I’m very much feeling that I’m playing like always. Some people are saying even better, but I’d let them say that.”
