The current incarnation of Classic and Blues Rock band Humble Pie will stage a short tour of America this September. The tour is staged as Jerry Shirley Presents: Humble Pie Legacy – 50 Years of Smokin’. Band leader and guitarist Dave “Bucket” Colwell, bassist Ivan Bodley, drummer Bobby Marks, and vocalist / guitarist Jim Stapley were picked by Jerry Shirley to carry on the band’s legacy.
Humble Pie founding drummer Jerry Shirley says:
Having spent a long time carefully putting together such a wonderful band of top-class players with the help of Dave ‘Bucket’ Colwell, my musical director and band leader using his recruiting skills, I am thrilled with the outcome and can’t wait to see and hear them light up the live stage later this year.
Founding guitarist Peter Frampton also supports the venture.
Humble Pie’s classic LPs like 1971’s live album Performance: Rockin’ the Fillmore and 1972’s commercial breakthrough Smokin’ remain cornerstones of Classic Rock, foundational influences for generations of artists from Aerosmith to Van Halen, to Quiet Riot, to the Black Crowes and many more.
Dave “Bucket” Colwell has played in bands since the age of 16, starting in the UK Pubrock era. He moved on to touring and recording, with tenures in Samson, Adrian Smith & Project, and Bad Company. The current band leader of Humble Pie Legacy plans to release his third solo album Chasing Satellites under the moniker Buckets Rebel Heart later this year.
