The legend of Humble Pie looms large in the annals of rock legend. Perhaps best known for their critically and commercially successful albums, Humble Pie Performance Rockin’ the Fillmore and Smokin’, the band represented the antithesis of British blues and boogie rock. The original lineup featured the late Steve Marriott on lead vocals and guitar, Peter Frampton on lead guitar and vocals, Jerry Shirley on drums, the late Greg Ridley on bass and vocals and Clem Clempson on guitar, vocals and keyboards. Frampton exited the outfit prior to the release of Performance Rockin’ the Fillmore. Marriott perished in a fire at his home in 1991 and Ridley died in 2003.
Humble Pie enjoyed gold record sales for their albums and are best known for a catalog of hits that includes: “I Don’t Need No Doctor,” “Hot and Nasty,” “30 Days in the Hole,” “Halleluiah I Just Love Her So,” “Natural Born Boogie,” “Stone Cold Fever,” and “Shine On.”
