Interesting mellow clip and very interesting take on the song, decades before the whole "unplugged" concert thing became popular with MTV broadcasts. The late great vocalist Steve Marriott and a 20 yr old Peter Frampton, with fellow band mates Greg Ridley (former bassist from Spooky Tooth) and 17-year-old drummer Jerry Shirley, unplugged on “Beat Club”, 1970 German t.v.
"For Your Love" was of course the huge 1965 hit for the supergroup and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members, The Yardbirds (Jeff Beck/Jimmy Page/Eric Clapton), written by future 10cc member Graham Gouldman. It peaked at number 3 on UK Singles Chart and became their highest charting single in the U.S., peaking at number six.
Humble Pie was a rock, hard rock, and rhythm and blues band from England and were one of the first supergroups from the 1970s, finding success in America and UK. They are best remembered for their dynamic live concert performances and songs such as "30 Days in the Hole", "I Don't Need No Doctor", and "Natural Born Bugie".
On Saturday, April 20, 1991, Steve Marriott died in a house fire, presumably after falling asleep in his bed with a lit cigarette, following a day of massive alcohol intake. He was 44 years old.
Beat-Club was a German music programme that ran from September 1965 to December 1972.. It is notable for being the first German show to be based around popular music, and featured legendary artists like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Tina Turner, The Who, Black Sabbath, The Bee Gees, The Beach Boys and Kraftwerk in its seven-year run. In 1972, it was replaced by Musikladen.
