    Was listening to some old stuff the other night and I rediscovered Humble Pie's 30 days in the Hole with Steve Marriott. I believe this was after Frampton left the group. Anyhow, does anyone know what amp/guitar Steve was using on this song? It was tasty

    not certain about the recording, but I saw him in concert many times
    Les Paul > Marshall

    Never got to see him in concert which is a shame. Seen quite a few pictures of him with several guitars, LP included, not sure of amps. In this recording it sounded a little different so I was curious.

    Off topic but love the line "Newcastle Brown can sure knock you down" ... inbetween the nods to other intoxicants.

    Big regret never saw the band live but, fwiw... Can't give a definitive answer but as well as LPs he had a custom Epiphone Coronet from a store in NY, - the Dwight, also an LP Junior.
    Most pics of the band show Marshall for amps but... Again, who knows.

    Personally, I'd like to think he used the white Tele with a bridge P90 from the Small Faces days, which he still owned those days ... But that's just day-dreaming.

    It was indeed post Frampton.
    Clem Clemson was his replacement.
    Great, rockin’ song!
    Love the amp tremelo.
    Wonder who played the rhythm part?
    Steve I guess.

    I love Humble Pie. As kennl said, he used Marshalls live, but there seems to only be one guitar track on the studio cut, mostly, and it sounds like there is a tremelo on it. Did Marshall make amps with tremelo? I honestly don't know. I suppose the tremelo could've been a studio effect added afterward. Also, being one guitar it may have been Clem Clempson doing the guitar work.

    This is a Packet of Three performance....well after Humble Pie. Their version of Tin Soldier (at this same gig) is just KILLER. Many of Steve's performances with Humble Pie seemed to feature a double-cut Les Paul Jr with a custom, symmetrical pickguard.....inspired me to make one for my Jr.

    Humble Pie were amazing at the Charlton gig. I liked the trade- Frampton for The Blackberries- who brought their wonderful, soulful sensibilities, to complement Stevie Marriot's chainsaw vocal style. It was a long, hot, tiring day and the two songs I remember most clearly were 'Black Coffee' and 'Thirty days in the Hole'.

    He usually played a epiphone coronet but I have also seen him with various
    Ok yes you are correct it was after Frampton. The Smokin lp arguably enough one of there best works ( There Exile if you will) Although rockin the Fillmore was I guess there Get yer ya yas out can you tell a stone's fan.? But back to the pie Steve was the major minor pentatonic master and also played harp and The B3 orgen but I am not sure but he was most of the time playing a Epiphone Corenet but if not some type of Lesspaul the guy (can't remember his name) who took Framptons place played a 335. As far as his amp goes probably Eather a plexi or early jcm

    I love the original cut, but the Gov't Mule version is badass too!

    'Fool for a pretty face' is another great cut.

    I saw Humble Pie 4 times - twice with Frampton and twice with Clemson. Great every time. I like their first two LPs the best (second one being Town and Country).

    Humble Pie were the gravitational center of Rock'n'Roll. I envy everybody who saw them live.

    To my ears, Steve Marriott was the greatest male voice in rock and roll. I prefer his Small Faces material, but this is a great performance of an excellent song.
