Coming out of Manchester in the early 1960s, Herman’s Hermits, fronted by Peter Noone, forged a timeless career on the strength of some truly classic hits, four of which landed in the Top 3 in the United States.
After the Hermits went their separate ways in 1971, Noone began a lengthy solo career and, eventually, began touring as Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone, something he continues doing to this day.
Recently, Noone caught up with Rock Cellar’s Ken Sharp for a spirited one-on-one interview that serves as our latest RockCellarTV edition — enjoy their conversation about Noone’s first experiences coming to America, the band’s beginnings, his inspirations, how British bands of his era “copied” American music and much more.
And here’s a bonus bit of soundcheck from Noone and his band!
Noone joins the ranks of those we’ve spoken with in this capacity over the past few months, a list that includes Steve Hackett, John Oates, Rick Springfield, Gene Simmons of KISS, Steve Lukather of Toto, Mike Love of the Beach Boys, Todd Rundgren, Ringo Starr and more.
