30 Days In The Hole

The Small Faces were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this week along with their later incarnation, the Faces.  I love Steve Marriott. It bums me out that I never got a chance to see him or Ronnie Lane in person. Marriott was the most intense vocalist of the period. Loved his guitar work and everything else about the guy. He died too early, I think that he accidentally lit his bed on fire. Didn't really dig the Faces all that much, Stewart played it a bit too cute and I never liked Ron Wood's sound all that much. But as New York Stan likes to say, he only has the best things to say about me!

This song of Humble Pie was recorded after Frampton left the band and features Clem Clempson on rhythm guitar.

I have only recently realized the glory of Mr Marriott and Humble Pie. One needs to mention that Robert Plant based his whole style on Marriott as well. The man maybe didn't get his due. He seemed to just love his gift and what he got to do with it.

You need to watch this version of Black coffee!!
