Options November 16, 2011: JERRY SHIRLEY interview! Plus a whole lot of Humble Pie and related music!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

Earlier this year, legendary Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley called in to the Evan "Funk" Davies show -- at 3am UK time! -- to share some memories of his friend and bandmate Steve Marriott on the 20th anniversary of Marriott's death. Jerry's fascinating autobiography, Best Seat In The House: Drumming In The '70s with Marriott, Frampton and Humble Pie (Rebeats/Hal Leonard), has just been released and we're happy to welcome him back to the WFMU airwaves for a more extensive interview! In addition to spending his late teens and early 20s with The Pie, one of rock & roll's first supergroups, Jerry played on Syd Barrett's solo records and did sessions with John Entwistle, B.B. King, Sammy Hagar and Badfinger's Joey Molland, among others. Jerry will be sharing stories from his remarkable career behind the kit, and EFD will be spinning plenty of Humble Pie and other related records. Don't miss this! And come out to meet Jerry (along with fellow drumming legend Carmine Appice!) at the book release party on Thursday Nov. 17 at the Cutting Room, 44 E. 32nd St in NYC.

Listener comments!

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:03pm Madi H.:

The drumming is Already Good. Yeawoo!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:03pm Bad Ronald:

Smoking opener!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:10pm glenn:

i thought jerry shirley was going to be last week? i guess i didn't miss it after all.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:13pm efd:

glenn, you did not! Hi everyone, thanks for tuning in! Should be interesting as I attempt to drop songs in on the fly during the interview playback -- no time to actually 'produce' it since I just recorded the interview last night.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:21pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Man, I think this is a first--a Ray Charles song on the EFD show! The guys in his band, particularly the drummers, always talked about how slow Ray Charles songs were--I think you could fit an entire Ramones' song in between beats here
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:22pm efd:

haha, I think you're correct on all counts Michael!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:24pm glenn:

i think ray's an acquired taste, and i don't know if i'll ever acquire it. i can see that he's very influential though.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:25pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Yeah--Dino Daneli, king of the groove!!!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:28pm glenn:

p.s. production's way overrated. let 'er rip, potato chip.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:29pm Michael from the Left Coast:

What a great drum sound here!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:30pm Thierry:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:31pm glenn:

best live album ever.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:36pm G:

Shirley a great show underway...
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:39pm Woggle:

I'm in London. What was that you were saying about buying a track?
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:40pm cheri:

great show so far,,evan also i hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving next week!!! see you in two weeks,, have fun!!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:43pm G:

7SD has already fulfilled the train wreck quota for Weds. night, so it's a sure thing that this will go totally fine. :-)
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:43pm efd:

Woggle, could you please email me at evan -at- wfmu.org? I'll explain.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:49pm Kenzo:

That's funny, I was just looking up the origin of "humble pie" a couple of days ago.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:58pm mrmucho:

oh yeah
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:01pm Living Doll:

Why is the pie so humble? It should be confident
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:03pm Mumble the penguin:

¡ɐɔıʇɹɐʇuɐ ɯoɹɟ sbuıʇǝǝɹb
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:08pm mrmucho:

levon helm = one of the great underrated drummers
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:11pm cheri:

evan you what they almost say,,, "tis the pre season to be jolly'!!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:15pm PB:

@mrmucho, and a great singer to boot. How great was Garth's organ playing on that track.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:16pm Living Doll:

  Wed. 11/16/11 10:18pm Joe D.:

this interview is fantastic. A+
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:18pm Julie:

I use a bit from this as my bed music now
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:19pm Julie:

Hey Joe D anyone ever call you Jody?
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:20pm cheri:

  Wed. 11/16/11 10:23pm cheri:

ty for playing "fire fly" on your show the other morning i love that tune,,julie
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:23pm Stevel:

So far so GREAT!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:25pm Julie:

Yeah I like when they use the harpsichord Cheri
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:25pm efd:

Thanks Steve, and thanks everyone! Glad you're all enjoying this as much as I am!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:26pm Julie:

Oh man this is making me too happy..all this Syd
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:27pm cheri:

evan & julie,,have a great thanksgiving next week
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:27pm Julie:

Oh we will..Evan is cooking dinner, right Evan?
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:28pm efd:

btw, I can't remind you all enough that Jerry was like 20 years old when he was doing all this...
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:29pm Joe D.:

@Julie .... yes.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:31pm mrmucho:

wait, nothing off the Entwistle LP?
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:32pm Cary Grant:

Joe D., Joe D., Joe D.!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:32pm efd:

coming up after the interview, mrmucho - too tight to try to squeeze it in right after those Barrett tunes.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:34pm mrmucho:

aye aye cap'n. hope you got the first sammy hagar LP lined up as well...
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:34pm Melvin Marriotti:

Good job efd! More Pie please...can't get my fill.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:35pm efd:

sadly that's the one thing I didn't have time to track down! I wanted to, too -- that early Hagar is tops! I do have some Montrose handy though, as kind of a consolation prize.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:37pm efd:

Thanks Melvin, if indeed that is your true name... although I suspect you're playing off one of the running stories from the book?
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:40pm Dave B:

Hey hey!

Hope I didn't miss all the slices of Pie. Luckily there's always seconds (and thirds) in the archives!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:41pm Melvin Marriotti:

Very astute efd. I didn't want to divulge I am Clem Clempson.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:42pm efd:

Ha! Well you're secret's safe with me!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:43pm efd:

Hi Dave! More Pie (and related side dishes/toppings) coming up shortly!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:45pm cheri:

well good night evan & julie, see you in two weeks efd and keep the funk alive!!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:48pm Formula:

Pie are NOT square.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:49pm Living Doll:

a la mode?
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:51pm Mike Sin:

Awesome interview, Evan -- great job.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:51pm Dave B:


  Wed. 11/16/11 10:53pm efd:

Thanks Mike! I have to say I'm pretty pleased with how that turned out!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:55pm efd:

There's a good story in the book about why this Entwistle track fades out at the end.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:57pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & all other friends!
@Julie - are you familiar with the post-Syd 'lost' soundtrack to Zabriskie Point (aka 370 Yards)? I just discovered, and like....and I am not the hugest post-Syd Floyd fan
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:59pm Parq:

Wow, never heard this Pie version of "Rain" -- fire-breathing!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:05pm Rickwaukee:

sweet bugie wugie!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:06pm efd:

Hi Holly, Rick, Parq, Living Doll and all! Thanks for tuning in tonight!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:10pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:11pm Holly in NC:

Evan - I know tonight's show is themed, and this is not a request - but have you checked out Slim Moore & the Mar-Kays ?
*new* *Canadian* *funk* :-)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:11pm Danne D:

Thanks for bring the goods as always :) Missed most of the interview :( but will catch up on the archives :) I remember how great your prior interview with him was :)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:12pm Julie:

@Holly No I'll have to check it out
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:12pm Julie:

@Holly there is some really good post-Syd floyd, but it really is a different band, to me anyhow
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:13pm Danne D:

Hey Julie and Holly :)

Um, so Evan has a penguin listening now? Did he get WFMU's first-ever Antarctic pledge?
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:13pm 11PM Hour:

  Wed. 11/16/11 11:14pm Kat:

Nicely done EFD!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:16pm cheri:

i hope you have a great vacay next week,,evan
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:16pm efd:

thanks Kat!
Holly, have not heard that but sounds like something I should check out!

Hi Danne!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:19pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne!
@Julie - ask me how many morose adolescent moments I spent listening to 'Wish You Were Here".... almost as much as 'Behind Blue Eyes' & 'Reign o'er Me' or (Rush alert!) Caress of Steel or....
anyway, once I was less angsty I got into Meddle.
And of course I went to that silly light show, which, um, I don't really remember!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:23pm Danne D:

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving Evan :) I'm yet to know if I need to go away or not :/
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:24pm Danne D:

If I'm going it'll be to NC. I'm assuming Holly will have the state spruced up if need be :)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:26pm Julie:

I'm sorry I missed the Floyd laser show. I like NC, well some of it. The part that's not around my brother-in-law
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:27pm cheri:

hiya danne,,long time no see,,how have you been?? happy holidays!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:28pm cheri:

night evan,, julie & danne
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:29pm Danne D:

HI Cheri!. Happy Thanksgiving Cheri! G'night Cheri!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:30pm Danne D:

Whoa Ira The K!

Evan bringing the big guns in!

Ira is good people as well. Got the pleasure of meeting him during the WFMU fundraising marathon.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:33pm Danne D:

Going to Maxwell's Sunday to see John Wesley Harding :)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:36pm Holly in NC:

Danne - Just let me know if I need to start sprucing! Earlier today I successfully fended off a pot-bellied pig with sharp teeth & vengeance on its mind (I do eat rather a lot of pig products) - so I feel up for anything ;-)
BTW - Numero's Eccentric Soul Revue is playing in Durham this Saturday! I'll miss the show, but Numero folks are going to be spinning 45s at my housemate's bar later in the evening - how cool is that? Anyone in the area should come out
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:41pm Holly in NC:

@Julie -
How horrible is your brother-in-law that he wrecks this fine state?
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:42pm Danne D:

lol thx Holly :)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:44pm Julie:

He's incredibly narrow-minded
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:45pm G:

I know someone off the grid near the Great Dismal Swamp, and while I would never cast aspersions let me state as a factual matter that were his rather flimsy porch roof to collapse several yellow dogs would instantly meet their makers.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:45pm Holly in NC:

Yeah, "Piggy" 0, Holly 1 - in fairness, Piggy was on a retractable harness
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:48pm Rickwaukee:

Just popped for Mr. Shirley's book plus S.Marriot bio and a couple Small Faces compilations. Maybe they'll arrive before my birthday next week. Enjoy your Wed. off and have a happy turkey (or tofurkey), EFD!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:48pm Holly in NC:

I used to think anyone with a Southern accept was stupid - talk about narrow-minded!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:49pm Holly in NC:

accent. accent.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:49pm cheri:

evan & julie i sure hope you two stay at fmu for very long time,
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:49pm Julie:

@holly ewww Jerry Garcia is on the soundtrack. I have seriously considered moving there, but I don't know I worry I will deal with a lot of that.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:51pm BuddieBear:

Oh yeah!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:55pm Holly in NC:

Julie - give both the soundtrack & NC a chance! While I'm totally moving to coastal Rhode Island as my final permanent home, my time here in NC has - seriously- made me a better person.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:56pm cheri:

ty evan & julie for making this show a funky one!!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:57pm Holly in NC:

efd - THANK YOU for Bush Tetras
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:58pm Danne D:

:( RIP Laura Kennedy :(

Thanks for a great show Evan!

Have a good night everyone!
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:58pm charlesinsb:

great to hear too many creeps, thank evan for remembering laura
  Thu. 11/17/11 12:04am The Count of Al Dente:

We were a jaded crowd here in Mpls. We had bands like Husker Du, The Replacements, etc., that had enough material to do three sets. When various NYC bands like The Bush Tetras or, Eight-Eyed Spy would come, they'd do their twenty-minute set of six or so songs, take a break and then come back and repeat the first set. Real hip.
  Thu. 11/17/11 11:14am Reality Check:

@Count: Even in areas like finance, New York has been coasting for decades on its rep for being cutting edge... "coasting" meaning that the reality often doesn't fit the boosterish hype.
  Mon. 11/21/11 11:42am Carl:

Great show,Evan (thanks to Chris Cote for turning me on to it) and fab i'view with Jerry Shirley. Chris & I were part of Jerry's back-up band at a book reading/signing here in Boston - what a trip playing with a bona fide rock legend.Nice fella,too.
