Peter Frampton making little progress with inclusion body myositis

Peter Frampton says he is making a little progress in fight with inclusion body myositis, a degenerative muscle disorder that would gradually rob him of his ability to play guitar.

In an interview with Peoplehe says, "I feel great. Since I announced [my illness] last February, we’ve had some progression, mainly in my legs. I work out five days a week, and the more I work out, the better it is to keep the strength in the muscles that I still have. It’s starting to affect my arms and my hands a little bit, but it’s not affecting my playing to a great deal, so I’m still enjoying playing. For how long, I don’t know. It’s very slow, the progression, but it’s more the fact that I’m having trouble standing and walking and things like that, as opposed to actually playing guitar. I have to say that it’s affecting everything, but not to the point where I don’t feel my playing is 100 percent."

Frampton started a year-long drug trial program last month at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. "I am very positive about it and I think, 'Who knows? This could be it.' We don’t know. And if not, I’ll try the next drug, whatever it is."

Frampton is 69 and is working on trying to schedule a farewell tour of Europe and South America following his U.S. tour last summer.
