Legendary singer-songwriter Peter Frampton has been a fixture in rock music since he burst onto the scene with his breakthrough album Frampton Comes Alive!. It's one of the bestselling live albums of all time, spawning several hit singles including "Show Me the Way", "Baby, I Love Your Way" and "Do You Feel Like We Do." Since then, Frampton has enjoyed a successful solo career, toured with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings and Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band, won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album with 2007's Fingerprints and appeared as himself on the silver screen in The Simpsons, Family Guy and Madam Secretary. He released his own memoir, Do You Feel Like I Do? last year. Phew!

This renaissance man recently sat down with Yahoo Life to share the favorite products that keep him singing, including what toys he gives his beloved pooch Bigsby, the candles he lights after a long day and his own COVID-themed tees.

Frampton had been searching for a plush toy his furry new friend could enjoy without tearing apart within moments. That's when he discovered the KONG Wild Knots Bear Dog Toy, which has been well-loved by Bigsby, to say the least. "It's made of rope underneath, so he can't rip this. He ripped a tennis ball open in five seconds, so this boy can rip!"

"Every home should have one," said the singer of the innovative Pawler Pooper Scooper

Now there's no need to bend down to collect your dog's, well, scoopables. The Pawler lets you do the job while standing up, and it holds more than any other scooper on the market. Ease is the name of the game with this genius product: easy assembly, easy storage and most importantly, easy to clean, with a rust-proof tray that's built to last.

It's not just about the pup in the Frampton household (though, have you seen Bigsby?)—it's also about the music. That's where the Sonos Bluetooth Speaker comes in. "I got a pair of these Sonos Bluetooth speakers, and they really are good," mused Frampton. "The sound is really stupendous." 

The Sonos speakers — which work solo or as a pair — are durable, battery-powered smart speakers that elevate both outdoor and indoor listening. Whether you're trying to listen to your favorite playlist outside or your go-to podcast inside, Sonos speakers provide surprisingly rich bass, a wide soundstage, and automatic Trueplay tuning to continually adapt the sound for where you are and what you're listening to. Even more, both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are built right in, so if you're on WiFi you can also check news, set alarms, ask questions and even more, completely hands-free. 

"They are really great quality...These just sound wonderful, and I'm picky!" Considering his long career in music, no surprises here.

Looking to set a cozy mood after a long day of work or play? Put your favorite Frampton album on, get comfy and light an Apothia candle. Frampton is partial to IF, scented with blooming jasmine, gardenia and tuberose topped with grapefruit and sparkling Yuzu. He's also a big fan of SOUL, which blends African ginger, mahogany, Tamboti wood and grains of paradise.

Says Frampton: "Boy oh boy, do they smell good — and when you've got a dog around, you need a few!" 

Made of a unique soy wax blend, the candles are sulfate-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and non-toxic, so you can truly relax without stress.

These fresh, healthy, tasty and fully-prepared meals have been a game-changer for Frampton, who says he's "become addicted" to them. 

"I've tried a lot of the delivery [meals], they're not that great," explained the singer, but his daughter urged him to give it another shot with Factor home meal delivery. Frampton loves the simplicity of the meals: "They don't go in the freezer, they arrive every week," he says, and you can pick your meals from over 20 dietician-approved weekly options. All the prepping and cooking is done for you, so all that's needed is to heat, eat and enjoy.

"[Between] the Factor food and walking the dog, I've lost some weight, which is nice. It's great."

COVID prompted a lot of artists to reconsider how to connect with their fans without access to live shows, and Frampton was no different. 

"When we first got locked down, I thought well, we're not on tour, we can't, so how about the 'Stay at Home' tour?" Thus, Frampton COVID T-shirts and merch were born. These clever tees include a "Frampton Stays Inside!" version of the famous Frampton Comes Alive! album cover, with the perfect touch of Frampton wearing a mask on the cover art. T

he fun continues on the back with the "Shelter in Place House Tour" list of dates, including tongue-in-cheek references to "playing" the Kitchen in March and the Laundry Room in April. You can even find special Frampton masks for attending your next live concert safely in style.
