Exclusive RockCellarTV Interview with Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits

Exclusive RockCellarTV Interview with Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits

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 HackettJohn OatesRick SpringfieldGene Simmons of KISSSteve Lukather of TotoMike Love of the Beach BoysTodd RundgrenRingo Starr and more.

    A great interview! I was so in love with Peter Noone in High School. I had pictures of him all over my room. Nice to hear him tell of how it was in the early days. Surprising he didn’t realize how popular he was! Thanks for the interview and great to see/hear him again.
