Humble Pie

Formed by Peter Frampton and Jerry Shirley. Named by Steve Marriott, the third member to join followed by Greg Ridley. Frampton told Rolling Stone, "It was incredible in the beginning. Even though Steve and I were completely different in our approaches, we were really out to beat the game together....All we wanted was to make it on our own terms."

Humble Pie was the first British rock act signed to A&M Records.

In Australia, "Natural Born Boogie" peaked at #9.

Rockin' the Fillmore was the album that made Humble Pie a major band in the U.S.

In September 1972, Humble Pie re-signed with A&M Records.
