Beautiful Photos of Steve Marriott in the 1960s and ’70s

Born 1947 in London, Steve Marriott was an English musician, songwriter and frontman guitarist of rock bands Small Faces (1965–1968 and 1975–1978) and Humble Pie (1969–1975 and 1979–1983), spanning over two decades.


In Britain, Marriott became a popular, often-photographed mod style icon. He was influenced from an early age by his heroes including Buddy Holly, Booker T & the MG’s, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Muddy Waters and Bobby Bland.

In later life, Marriott became disillusioned with the music industry and turned his back on the big record companies, remaining in relative obscurity. He returned to his music roots playing the pubs and clubs around London and Essex.

Marriott died in 1991 when a fire, which was thought to have been caused by a cigarette, swept through his 16th century home in Arkesden, Essex. He posthumously received an Ivor Novello Award in 1996 for his Outstanding Contribution to British Music, and was listed in Mojo as one of the top 100 greatest singers of all time. He was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 as a member of Small Faces.

Take a look at these beautiful photos to see portrait of Steve Marriott in the 1960s and 1970s.
