2002 saw Greg Ridley begin what has been a steady reemergence into Rock & Roll, as he and Jerry Shirley teamed with Humble Pie MkIII member Bobby Tench, Dave "Bucket" Colwell, and Zoot Money in the studio for a new rendition of the Pie and the album “Back on Track”. With Greg now fronting Humble Pie, a limited, but well-received tour of Europe soon followed the release in 2002. 

"I relish the role of front man" Greg recently confessed and that's evident by the enthusiasm and joy with which he jumped back into the music business.  It was also plain to see by the gleam in his eye while either cutting a new track in the studio or playing a live concert.  The magic was back for Greg Ridley, as he planned on sharing it during upcoming performances in the UK and beyond in 2004.

Sadly, the plans were not to be. After being hospitalised in his home of Alicanti, Spain, Greg passed away on November 19, 2003 from pneumonia and resulting complications. He is survived by his wife Patricia, two daughters, two sons and his sister.

Rock and Roll has lost another of its greatest.  That description  extends far beyond his talent as a musician and performer, as Greg was known by everyone he met as a friendly, modest, and unassuming gentleman.  He was always ready with a smile and kind word for whoever crossed his path.  He will be sorely missed by his family, friends and fans throughout the world.
