Humble Pie drummer gives Quiet Riot vocalist “thumbs up!”

Original Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley has given his stamp of approval to Quiet Riot vocalist Kevin DuBrow’s version of the 1970 Humble Pie song “Red Light Mama Red Hot”. It’s featured on DuBrow’s upcoming “In For The Kill” solo album on Shrapnel Records. Commenting on an advance copy, Shirley had this to say. “It’s really strange to hear someone do a song from this part of Steve Marriott’s career. People usually cover either Small Faces tunes or they do ’30 Days In The Hole’ from Humble Pie. You’ve been faithful to the original and it really has balls. I give it the thumb’s up!” Shirley told DuBrow.

DuBrow had this to say about Shirley’s endorsement. “Being that ‘Red Light Mama’ is the centerpiece of the album and Humble Pie was always my favorite band, his comments mean the world to me. I’m ecstatic!” The album comes out sometime next month.
