The legend of Humble Pie looms large in the annals of rock legend. Perhaps best known for their critically and commercially successful albums, 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.
Today, co-founder/drummer, Jerry Shirley oversees Humble Pie’s legacy from his home in England, maintaining maximum quality control over the presentation of the group and their new and current touring entity. “We all have a great sense of love and pride for Humble Pie, the members, their families and what we were able to achieve,” begins Shirley. “And it goes without saying that no one will ever replace Steve, Peter or any member of the band. My goal is keep the legacy of Humble Pie intact, as one of the greatest live acts in rock, while satiating the need for generations of our beloved fans to again enjoy our music performed live by world-class musicians,” he declares.
