Just one day after Peter Frampton announced he’s embarking on tour, the legendary musician announced it will his farewell tour because he's suffering from a rare degenerative muscular disease.

The 68-year-old told “CBS This Morning: Saturday” he was first diagnosed with inclusion-body myositis (IBM) nearly four years ago after a fall onstage.

“I’m able to play great right now,” he explained. “In a year’s time, maybe not so good. I’m a perfectionist, and I do not want to go out there and fell like ‘Oh I can’t’ or ‘This isn’t good.’ That would be a nightmare for me.”
