Peter Noone living best life on stage with his songs
At 71-years-old, Peter Noone says he’s living his best life.
With over 50 years in the music and entertainment business, he’s still “Into Something Good.” Touring as Herman’s Hermits Starring Peter Noone, he said it continues to amaze him of the passion of the many self-proclaimed “Nooneatics” who attend his shows.
“We’re doing 168 concerts this year and we’re filling them up,” he told The Constitution. “People must be expecting us to quit soon. We’re not. I’m having my best year ever.”
In the early and mid-60s, Noone and his bandmates in Herman’s Hermits became internationally known superstars on the backs of hit songs like “I’m Into Something Good” “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter,” “I’m Henry VIII, I Am,” “Silhouettes,” “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat,” “There’s A Kind of Hush” and many others. As part of the “British Invasion,” he said all the English artists filled different roles on the radio. There was never really any rivalry, he said.
“It was a cultural revolution; I’m just British and I’m in it,” Noone said. “I have a sense of humor about it. You shouldn’t take the whole thing seriously.”
