Peter Noone talks about Hermits, British Invasion & working with legends
After close to 50 years of touring the Herman's Hermits, Peter Noone still has the same love for the songs and the people that he always did. Songs like "Mrs Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter, I'm Henry VIII I am, There's A Kind Of Hush, and "I'm into Something Good," which was written by Gerry Goffen and Carole King and used in the 1988 movie "Naked Gun From the Files Of Police Squad."
Noone will be bringing the band to the State Theatre in New Brunswick April 29 along with BJ Thomas, Dennis Tufano, former lead singer of The Buckinghams, and Jersey's own the 1910 Fruit Gum Company.
Noone called my show Wednesday night and we spoke about what it was like being part of the "British Invasion" with bands like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Who, and Kinks. In fact the Who once toured opening for the Herman's Hermits. We also spoke about some of the session musicians who played on some of their songs like Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin.
It's great hearing Noone tell the old stories and having hosted the Hermits and taken my kids to see them, I can honestly say it's a great time.
