Not So Guilty Pleasure - Steve Marriott

In a parallel universe  I post a daily acknowledgement and celebration of a musician's birthday.  Today was the birthday of one of the finest rock 'n rollers I ever had the pleasure of seeing in person.  Steve Marriott would have been 66.  As the front man of two hit bands - Small Faces and Humble Pie-  he was one of the exemplars of blue-eyed soul.  Each band was widely recognized as being among the tightest live bands in rock history.  Two musicians were recruited to replace him when he left Small Faces.  Ron Wood and Rod Stewart were the musical replacements for one man.  Get out the air guitar, turn  it up to 11 and enjoy one of the greatest RnR or R&B tenors/shouters.

With Small Faces:

With Humble Pie and Peter Frampton (yes that Peter Frampton.)
