Humble Pie

A showcase for former Small Faces' frontman Steve Marriott and one-time Herd guitar virtuoso Peter Frampton, the hard rock outfit Humble Pie formed in Essex, England in 1969. Also featuring ex-Spooky Tooth bassist Greg Ridley along with drummer Jerry Shirley, the fledgling group spent the first several months of its existence locked away in Marriott's Essex cottage, maintaining a relentless practice schedule. Signed to the Immediate label, Humble Pie soon issued their debut single "Natural Born Boogie," which hit the British Top Ten and paved the way for the group's premiere LP, As Safe as Yesterday Is.

After touring the U.S. in support of 1969's Town and Country, Humble Pie returned home only to discover that Immediate had declared bankruptcy. The band recruited a new manager, Dee Anthony, who helped land them a new deal with A&M; behind closed doors, Anthony encouraged Marriott to direct the group towards a harder-edged, grittier sound far removed from the acoustic melodies favored by Frampton. As Marriott's raw blues shouting began to dominate subsequent LPs like 1970's eponymous effort and 1971's Rock On, Frampton's role in the band he co-founded gradually diminished; finally, after a highly charged U.S. tour which yielded 1971's commercial breakthrough Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore, Frampton exited Humble Pie to embark on a solo career.

After enlisting former Colosseum guitarist Dave "Clem" Clempson to fill the void, Humble Pie grew even heavier for 1972's Smokin', their most successful album to date. However, while 1973's ambitious double studio/live set Eat It fell just shy of the Top Ten, its 1974 follow-up Thunderbox failed to crack the Top 40. After 1975's Street Rats reached only number 100 before disappearing from the charts, Humble Pie disbanded; while Shirley formed Natural Gas with Badfinger alum Joey Molland, and Clempson and Ridley teamed with Cozy Powell in Strange Brew, Marriott led Steve Marriott's All-Stars before joining a reunited Small Faces in 1977.

In 1980, Marriott and Shirley re-formed Humble Pie with ex-Jeff Beck Group vocalist Bobby Tench and bassist Anthony Jones. After a pair of LPs, 1980's On to Victory and the following year's Go for the Throat, the group mounted a troubled tour of America: after one injury-related interruption brought on when Marriott mangled his hand in a hotel door, the schedule was again derailed when the frontman fell victim to an ulcer. Soon, Humble Pie again dissolved; while Shirley joined Fastway, Marriott went into seclusion. At the dawn of the 1990s, he and Frampton made tentative plans to begin working together once more, but on April 20, 1991, Marriott died in the fire which destroyed his 16th century Arkesden cottage. He was 44 years old. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

♪♪♪♪♪ ♥ ♥ ♥ Steve Marriott ♥ ♥ ♥ ♪♪♪♪♪
I discovered this great artist rather late. He wanted to be taken seriously as an artist/music i a n , I think, he didn't have to go hard rock and stay there. What an awesome guitarist/vo c a l i s t / l y r i c i s t . Rest in peace, Steve Marriot. Rest in peace, Ronnie Plonk Lane. ♪♪♪ ♥ ♥ The Small Faces ♥ ♥ ♪♪♪ : )
This great band is largely ignored by most classic rock stations. Steve Marriott sound amazingly just like a black female soul singer....bu t he is just some random white dude after all!
Saw them at the Sam Houston Coliseum in 1970 or 71. Marriott and Frampton were both blazing. One of the best all-out balls to the walls rock shows I've ever seen. Fond memories of the glory days of hard rock.
Saw humble pie was to stoned to remember when but do remember we were rocking
hodgdons7
AH time travel's a wonderful thing. Right back to 1971, 72. Steve Marriott. And arguably, some of the best of Peter Frampton!
1979 is here again everytime i hear 30 days in a hole. and thats OK!
28 days ago a handsome intellegent man made a comment about this band that seemed to leave everyone speechless until now.
What a soulful voice Marriot had. What a great band.

Humble Pie---so long ago now it all seems surreal. Walk On Gilded Splinters--- D r . John's original is pretty damn good too!
did lite&pa for packet of 3 charotte n.c. 1985,great ,ballsy show.time slips away.enjoy what others have missed.
I love the fact that he spoke in first person, show in 72 !

Steve Marriott---d i e d in a fire in his own home 1991---FATE = tragic loss. RIP: S.M.

I know what you mean Terry52 it's just so dog gone good man
always stop what i am doing to listen to HP. someday those guys gonna give me a heart attack
milosdad
Agree with Blackoff on Live at Fillmore. These guys were nasty, ballsy rock that defined where you stood in high school. There were no casual Humble Pie fans. You either loved them or did not know them. Sad to say I never saw the good version of the band. Saw some line up in 1979 or 80 but don't even recall who was in the band.

It's like your on a magic carpet ride
joedzyner
Detroit, 1971 Lee Michaels, Steely Dan, Grand Funk & Led Zeppelin
now we were rockin !!!!
i saw these guys in dalls in 75. they are one of the all time rockers. live at the fillmore is one of the top 3 live lps ever
One listen a day keeps the doctor away
Saw Steve and the All Stars warming up Santana in Detroit in 1976. Always been a huge Pie maniac, and that show was something I'll never forget.
Fillmore...T H E BEST!!!!
kvons1
rip: Steve Marriott---- - t r a g i c a l l y & too soon gone. One of the all time best and never forgotten.
mikemoller88
saw a revamped edition of the group in small town East Texas 10 yrs. ago whoever they were they still kicked A** and took names!!!
Some of you were lucky 2 have seen 1 of the the great live acts (EVER) Marriot may be my # 1 choice 2 party with. For shear copassion no one tops, maybe Springsteen. There is another live import ( San. Fran ) post framton, include the stones backup gospel singers----- - - - B e r r i e s ? as good or better than (Rockin the Fillmore) Rod WHO ? PDX McCartney
what a great band, marriot was the man
Saw'em Jam at a natural amphitheater , I think it was Stubenville OH area about 1971 or 72. Black Oak Arkansas or Mountain played with them. Hot'er than the hinges of hell, people swam naked in the water trucks they brought in. the Hari's ran on out of incense....T h e y offered a thousand bucks for a fan on stage! If you saw this show..post the other bands and date to refresh my memory!
Love it!, I broadcast live on www.vaughnli v e . t v playing air guitar to all my fave artists;)
jdools
Just saw Frampton in Atlantic City for the Comes Alive 35 tour. Still great, catch it if you can.
I have been listening since 1970, and it doesnt matter what they play, they gave it there all. I would say there one of the best to come out of the sixties.
LITTLE STEVEB MARRIOT THE BEST OF THE BEST BLUES FONT MAN OF ALL TIME SO TINY YET. SO MASSIVE A VOICE NO MAN CAN SING BETER HEAVY BLUES THAN STEVEN MARRIOT PERIOD!
Marriot=Grea t e s t live rock performer ever.Paul Rogers and Rod Stewart both said Steve has best voice they ever heard.Fillmo r e = T o p 3 or better live rock albums in history.Saw them many times with SM and ALWAYS unbelievable energy. SM passing was a huge loss to R&R.My only regret was not seeing them with Frampton.
what a blues voice - Marriott is dynamite! Still contemporary after all these years...
milosdad
I never got to see the real Humble Pie and may have seen a version of one w/o Marriot but I'm not sure. The songs that I love by these guys define some of the funner periods of my life. "I don't need no Doctor, 30 days in the hole, & Up Your Sleeve"> Each w/tempo changes that eventually kick your a**. Like others here, I miss this type of blues. Fun and not pretentious.
rusty435
Yea thats what I was looking for "Rockin The Fillmore"
What about "Rockin' the Fillmore"?
Similar Artists: Joe Walsh, and GFR? Please...who determines these things anyhow?

Even Led Zep and Jimi Hendrix are dubious choices to compare. If you want to hear similar artists check out Free - or maybe even Paul Rogers' later creation Bad Company.
