Personalities | Humble Pie | Seventies | Rock

(Vocal group, 1969–75)

British supergroup Humble Pie were created around former Small Face Steve Marriott (guitar, vocals) and ex-Herd man Peter Frampton (guitar, vocals), with Greg Ridley (bass) and Jerry Shirley (drums). Initially combining acoustic and hard-rocking sets, the former were abandoned shortly before Frampton left to be replaced by Colosseum’s Dave Clempson. The band split in 1975 and reformed briefly in 1980. A further revival was mooted shortly before Marriott died in 1991.
