Frontman for Small Faces and for Humble Pie who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame posthumously in 2012.
He wore glasses with no lenses to look more like his idol Buddy Holly.
He was killed after he fell asleep with a lit cigarette in his mouth, causing his house to catch on fire.
He was born to parents Kay and Bill Marriott. His mother worked at the Tate & Lyle factory and his father was a printer, a jellied eels stall owner, and a pub pianist.
Ozzy Osbourne called Marriott the fourth greatest singer of all time.
