I wasn't old enough to see them in thier heyday but i was lucky enough to see the Pie in 1980 at the Reseda Country Club in Ca with the late great Steve Marriot.Boy did that guy have soul.I can see why Warren Haynes likes his material so much.I still listen to Rockin' the Fillmore often and thier self titled 1970 album.
Anyone on here got any great Humble Pie memories?

I saw the original band a few times in the early '70's. Each time they were on the bill with the J Geils Band, I think they had the same manager, so they'd tour together. If those 2 bands didn't get your butt moving, you probably swallowed too many downers

Incredible band. Rocking the Fillmore is one of the best live Rock and Roll albums of all time.

Their studio album Rock On is pretty incredible as well. Peter Frampton was one of the guitarists in Humble Pie before he took off for a solo career. His guitar work with Humble Pie was much more blues based than his later "pop" stuff...

Humplie Pie was great,I break out Rockin the Fillmore at least once every few weeks,it's best when played LOUD. It's a shame that there is are only 2 surviving members alive, Steve Marriot died in a fire and more recently Greg Ridley died. Peter Frampton and drummer Jerry Shirley are still around.If you youtube em there's a few good nuggets.

I saw the band minus Frampton but with Steve Marriot a few times and it was always a great concert.

"As Safe As Yesterday Is" ranks as one of my favorite albums of all time. Rockin' the Fillmore and Smokin' are up there also. Still listen to this band quite a bit. When Stevie died he and Peter were talking reunion. What a shame they didn't get the chance to get back together, something I believe Peter still regrets.

It might be cliche and commerical but "30 days in the hole" is one of my all time favorite songs...just balls to the wall rock.

Yea, I actually did have a chance to see them a number of times with the original line up. They were awesome. I saw them at the Fillmore East a couple of times and I use to work at the Academy of Music in NYC, 14th and 3rd Ave. and they played there a number of times. Always a show and a half. Someone else mentioned J Geils Band. I saw them no less than 15 times back then. One of my favorite bands of all times. Incredible! First I look at the purse!

I only saw the reformed Pie a few times in the early 80's w/ Steve , Jerry , Bobby Tench & Sooty Jones . They were great & Steve was quite the showman . I still listen to Rockin' The Fillmore , Smokin' , Rock On & Eat It quite a bit .

Remember seeing Humble Pie back in the day, and as others have mentioned J. Geils Band was touring with them. Actually, the opening act was Frampton's Camel, as he had just left Humble Pie and had put this band together. Remember it was a good "rockin" night of music.

Never did see 'em, and I'm old enough to have seen 'em, but as far as I'm concerned, "Smokin'" is one of the great rock records ever recorded. Humble Pie ROCKS!

Steve Marriott, in my opinion, is one of the best vocalists that ever lived. He had a whole lotta soul and then some!! I loved Humble Pie-still do!

I saw the tour w/J. Geils. Had never heard of them at the time. They completely blew me away! That was a great concert all the way around!

I saw them in '89, Jerry Shirley was the only "original" member. The rest of the group were guys who looked as though they were in their early 20's, but the lead singer/rhythm guitarist SOUNDED just like Steve Marriott and the lead guitarist was pretty good.

Just a couple of months later, I saw Jerry Shirley drumming with the then current lineup of Badfinger (only Joey Molland was left from their heyday...Pete & Tommy had already passed on and Mike Gibbins had left the band)

I had heard the radio hits since I was a kid but I didn't hear a complete album by them until a couple of years ago. I was blown away by their live album and I've heard smokin' and a greatest hits compalation since. I couldn't believe I had missed out on a band this good for so long. I love Framptons back up vocals on the live album! I've read they were working on a reunion when Steve Marriott died.

Humble Pie is the Sh!t. Deep Tracks on XM plays them often. A sad day when Steve Marriott died.

Saw the original band at the Fillmore..they were alright. It wasn't easy for a band to open when we were anticipating our Headliner, and had no patience for some opening act's. But Humble Pie kept your attention..Frampton was an eyeopener for sure.

We just say Frampton at Warrens Christmas Jam and played Four Day Creep and I Dont Need No Doctor. On Dont Need No Doctor Peter had Warren Haynes, Audley Freed, Danny Louis & Andy Hess play with him on the song. Need I say more...............
