Hey, Eddie Marriott!

We dig the Sights. We dig Humble Pie. We also know the Sights dig Humble Pie. And Humble Pie woulda no doubt dug the Sights. Shit, the Sights frontman, the gloriously impish Mssr. Eddie Baranek, claims openly that he cops Pie frontman Steve Marriott's moves left and right, up and down. We happen to think it's some kinda divine channeling thing. Dig this vid of Humble Pie doing "The Sad Bag of Shaky Jake" from its brillant and underrated 1969 Town and Country record. Eddie, er, Steve Marriot is, you'll note, on the right. Note the Baranek patented elbow-fly, chicken-head moves. (For what it's worth, Peter Frampton is about 19 years old here!)
