Peter Noone Interview

When you conjure up the image of the original British Invasion, what exactly comes to mind? The Beatles on Sullivan, sure. The Stones doing "Satisfaction," likely. Perhaps thoughts of the Dave Clark Five, the Yardbirds, maybe Gerry and the Pacemakers. Or maybe, just maybe, you think about Herman's Hermits -- a band that really didn't get a big enough nod in most music history annals, despite the fact that they managed to outsell the Beatles globally in 1965. With the help of tracks like "I'm Into Something Good," "There's a Kind of Hush," "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter," and many others, the band were catapulted into stardom during the mid-60's. The fresh-faced leader of the Hermits was Peter Noone, a boy then of only 16 who had already made a name for himself acting on the BBC soap, "Coronation Street." Today, Peter Noone still maintains a hectic schedule. Having recently completed a US "Teen Idols Tour" with Davey Jones and Bobby Sherman, he's about to embark on a rather lengthy British tour. Noone has also recently launched his on-line project,, where Noone chats regularly (almost daily) with his fans. We were lucky enough to talk to Peter exclusively for Excellent Online as he was preparing a few warm-up shows for the UK tour.
