In a conversational atmosphere, Frampton candidly discusses a broad array of topics encompassing the enormous success of Frampton Comes Alive, his brilliant solo career, his recent naturalization as a U.S. citizen and his most recent album, Fingerprints which received GRAMMY® nominations for "Best Pop Instrumental Album," and "Best Rock Instrumental Performance."

With Fingerprints Frampton returns to his roots, finally culminating his lifelong dream of recording an instrumental album in the spirit of his first musical heroes. "This has been the CD I've been waiting to make all my life," Frampton says. "Every track has been a wonderful challenge, pushing me to raise my own bar again and again."
