Herman's Hermits
Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Musicians
    (1963- )
    Peter Noone (vocals)
    Derek 'Lek' Leckenby (lead guitar)
    Keith Hopwood (rhythm guitar)
    Karl Green (bass)
    Barry 'Bean' Whitman (drums)
    Recorded 'I'm Into Something Good' 'Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter' 'I'm Henry The Eighth, I Am' and 'No Milk Today'
    The aforementioned Hermits, excluding Peter, didn't play much on the records. Session musicians were brought in instead. As a result, the other Hermits sometimes wound up solely as background vocalists.
    Peter Noone got the nickname 'Herman' when a resemblance was noticed between him and Sherman (as in Mr. Peabody & Sherman from Rocky & Bullwinkle).
    They came years before the Monkees, yet the Monkees got respect as great pop musicians shockingly long before the Hermits.
    They made a movie named after their hit 'Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter,' about a racing dog (?!).
    'I'm Into Something Good' was used in 'Naked Gun.'
    At its peak, their success nearly matched that of the Rolling Stones & The Beatles.
    They sometimes still play concerts on the oldies circuit (a tour they're undergoing has the hilarious slogan 'lock up your grandmothers').
    Peter never felt the need to hide his Cockney accent, which wound up fitting with the music very well.
    They were a huge part of the British Invasion.
    Peter has had success as an actor.
    He once said: 'The Beatles were not attempting to impress you. They were trying to impress each other. Therein lies the perfect motivation for any artist. If your motive is to impress 12 year old girls, the scope is slightly limited.'
