Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone

PETER NOONE
BiographyPeter Blair Denis Bernard Noone is a multi-talented entertainer, who has been delighting
audiences nearly all his life. He was born in Manchester, England, where he studied voice
and acting at St. Bede’s College and the Manchester School of Music and Drama. As a
child, he played “Stanley Fairclough” in the long-running British soap opera Coronation
Street. He was also featured in the television series Knight Errant, Family Solicitor and
Monro’s Saki Stories.
At the age of fifteen, Peter achieved international fame as “Herman”, lead singer of the
legendary pop band Herman’s Hermits. His classic hits include: “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”, “Wonderful World”, “Just A Little Bit
Better”, “There’s A Kind of Hush”, “A Must To Avoid”, “Listen People”, “No Milk
Today” “The End of the World” “Leaning On A Lamp Post”, and “Dandy”. Ultimately,
Herman’s Hermits sold over fifty-two million recordings. In all, fourteen singles and
seven albums went gold.
As “Herman”, the photogenic Noone graced the cover of nearly every international
publication including Time Magazine. He performed on hundreds of television shows and
appeared with such luminaries as Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason, Dean Martin and Danny
Kaye. He was cast as the engaging “Duke of Cheshire” in ABC’s musical version of The
Canterville Ghost. Soon thereafter, he portrayed the title role in Hallmark Hall of Fame’s
Pinocchio. He also starred in three highly successful feature films for M-G-M: Mrs.
Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Hold On! and When The Boys Meet The
Girls.
With characteristic zeal, Peter took on leading roles in full-scale theatrical productions of
Dick Wittington, Aladdin and Sinbad The Sailor. These live stage spectaculars were
mounted at major theatres throughout Great Britain and Noone received critical acclaim for
his outstanding work. In the eighties, Peter starred on Broadway in the New York
Shakespeare Festival’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance. He
won rave reviews for his superb portrayal of the dashing, young hero, “Frederic”. His
performance was so well received, that he went on to reprise the role at the world-famous
Drury Lane Theatre in London. Noone charmed audiences worldwide as he continued to
play “Frederic” with both the U.S. National Touring Company and the International
Touring Company of “Pirates”.
Peter’s acting career flourished with guest-starring roles in prime-time television series
such as: Married With Children, My Two Dads, Dave’s World, Easy Street, Too
Close For Comfort, and Laverne and Shirley. In a memorable episode of Quantum
Leap, he shed his “nice guy” image to portray “Dwayne”, a scheming promoter with
murderous intentions. He starred as “Apoo”, a frustrated African relief worker, in the Los
Angeles stage premiere of Topokana Martyr’s Day and as Alfred Von Wilmers in the
U.S. National Tour of the smash Broadway hit Romance, Romance.
The nineties found Peter embarking on a four-year stint as the winsome host of VH1’s My
Generation, the highest-ever-rated half hour retrospective of pop/rock music. More
recently, he was featured in the recurring role of “Paddington” on the CBS daytime drama,
As The World Turns. His legion of fans eagerly awaited each episode and Peter quickly
became a favorite of the soap opera magazines and online message boards. He began the
millennium with his successful entry into cyberspace and the New York Daily News
dubbed him “The King of the Sixties on the Internet” due to the overwhelming popularity
of his websites: peternoone.com and hermanshermits.com.
Accompanied by his band, Herman’s Hermits, Noone currently performs over 200 concerts
a year. He consistently plays to sold-out venues and his admirers span the generations.
Today’s teen girls scream just as passionately as their mothers did back in 1965, prompting
VH1 to select Noone as their viewer’s choice for the “Sexiest Artist of the Year”. There is
no doubt that Peter Noone’s extraordinary talent, disarming wit, handsome features and
compelling stage presence will continue to delight fans of all ages, for a long, long time to
come.
