In an interview with CBS This Morning: Saturday today (Feb. 23), Peter Frampton revealed that he suffers from a rare degenerative muscular disorder called Inclusion-Body Myositis (IBM) and that the diagnosis means his next tour will be his last.
IBM is a progressive disease, and Frampton, 68, told CBS that he wants to get as much guitar playing in as he can before it begins to impact his ability to perform.
"What will happen unfortunately is that it affects the finger flexors," he said. "So for a guitar player, it's not very good. I'm able to play great right now, but in a year's time, maybe not so good. I'm a perfectionist, and I do not want to go out there and feel like 'This isn't good.' That would be a nightmare for me."
