Humble Pie

Humble Pie
Humble Pie was an English rock band formed by Steve Marriott of Small Faces, in Essex during 1969. Marriott recruited Peter Frampton (guitar) of The Herd, Greg Ridley (bass) of Spooky Tooth, and then-relatively-unknown drummer Jerry Shirley, creating one of the first "supergroups." Their early style varied between hard blues-based rock and more progressive sounds. After Frampton's departure in 1971, Colosseum's Clem Clempson came on board, and the band moved more towards the blues. The group lasted until 1975, though numerous reunions and new versions of the band have appeared since. In 1988, Shirley obtained the rights to the name, and played off and on without Marriott (who died in 1991) or any other original members until his death in 2003.
