I'd put them in my top ten "progressive rock" bands. Then again, I'd better make that top five. I don't think I could name ten prog rock bands that I would listen to.

NO!

just because I like to go counter to the masses.

But on the other hand if this is a related to pie then I'd like to change my vote as long as it's not that humbleberry flavoured stuff. It doesn't taste so good. I know since I've been forced to eat some from time to time.

I liked Humble Pie, back before Frampton sucked.

No, because I'm a contrarian.

Oh, and +1 on Humble Pie! I saw them in Philly, opening for Loggins & Messina, in spring '73. Can't tell you what they played but I do remember having fun.

And my answer is still no.

In '73, they must have played their semi-radio hit, "Thirty Days in the Hole". My head is exploding imagining hearing that and Loggins & Messina's "Christopher Robin" at the same concert.
