Humble pie is a band that must be talked about. I have been on a Frampton kick lately and I noticed that in the realm of classic rock no one is talking about Humble Pie.
Well first we need to get over the name. According to Dictionary.com to eat humble pie is humility forced on someone often under embarrassing conditions. However the name was suggested by Steve Marriott, and even though there is no official explanation it makes sense for the comical meaning as this was a super-group in the same light of Led Zeppelin, if you have ever heard that story.
I will not go over all the details that you can go to wikipedia to see but the strength of this band is Steve Marriott formerly of the Small Faces and Peter Frampton of The herd. The band was slightly unique in that both of these members were vocalists and lead guitar. When this bad was formed Frampton was already popular in England and was named the face of 1968 by Teen Magazine.
If you want to get introduced to Humble Pie The First album As Safe as yesterday is , was one of the first to be called heavy metal, I really like the track I’ll go alone. The second album Town and Country you can skip unless you like acoustic. The third album self titled is very good I like Live with me, I’m Ready, and Red Light mama, red hot!. The Fourth album is one to really listen all the way through. Also the Live album Performance: Rockin’ the Fillmore is very good. I will stop there because that’s when Peter Frampton left… but I’m not biased, lol.
