Peter Frampton To Receive Les Paul Spirit Award

Peter Frampton will receive the annual Les Paul Spirit Award.

The Les Paul Foundation announced that the prestigious award will be presented to the legendary musical artist and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer on June 9 at a private event at the Gibson Garage Nashville.

The event will take place on what would have been Les Paul‘s 109th birthday and marks the third anniversary of the Gibson Garage Nashville.

The annual award is presented to an individual who exemplifies the spirit of the late Les Paul through innovation, engineering, technology and/or music. In addition to the award, a grant from the Les Paul Foundation will be made in the honoree’s name to the charity of his choice.

Frampton has experimented with new technologies and music trends, apparent in his early recordings on albums Frampton and Frampton Comes Alive! and particularly his hit singles “Do You Feel Like We Do” and “Show Me the Way,” synonymous with the use of the talk box.

“I cannot think of anyone more fitting to be honored with this year’s Les Paul Spirit Award than Peter Frampton,” said Michael Braunstein, Executive Director of The Les Paul Foundation. “Not only is he an extraordinary talent who has given us an amazing array of extraordinary music, but he is an innovator who understands music, technologies, and the spirit of Les Paul.”
