Peter Frampton has gotten to join Ringo Starr on stage several times in recent months, and now fans will be able to hear the veteran guitar whiz on the ex-Beatles drummer’s upcoming album. Late last week, Frampton posted a photo on his Facebook page showing him and Starr together that was accompanied by a note that reads, “Played on two tracks of Ringo’s next cd yesterday.
This past January, Frampton served as part of Ringo’s backing group during a tribute show to Starr at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre, and also hit the stage with the former Beatle at the 2014 Grammy Awards and at the taping of the CBS special commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s historic Ed Sullivan Show appearance.
Starr, meanwhile, also revealed in a post on his Twitter feed that his new album will feature “a lot of friends.” Among said “friends” apparently is Toto guitarist and current All Starr Band member Steve Lukather, who is pictured with Ringo in a photo attached to the tweet. Lukather also performed alongside Starr and Frampton at all the aforementioned January events.
Frampton was himself a member of Ringo’s All Starr Band in 1997 and 1998, and he also played on Starr’s 1976 studio album, Ringo’s Rotogravure.
