Look what I found? Anyone know what year this was from?
Did you go to Domnet street high school in Blackley Village?
Peter Noone sounds like a sweet and friendly chap and he also sounds really hilariously funny too I can hardly wait to meet you Peter Noone.
Peter Noone is so funny and quite a sweet and friendly chap I hear I can hardly wait to meet you Peter Noone you sound like a great guy.
Next to the Beatles, you/Herman’s Hermits are my favorite for all of these years. I will be looking forward to seeing you in person for the first time at Mohegan Sun tonight !
My first concert was 1966 – State Fairgrounds, Columbus, Ohio, row 13. Too stunned to talk, but we sang a lot!
Here’s what I know about that drawing. I still draw it everytime I go to Romano’s Macaroni Grill! I remember it from somewhere around 65? You have always been my fave, and I’ve seen you in some pretty strange places. Back in the ’90s it was in Lawrenceville, Ga. at an airport – a storm made us move the location of your concert to a different “beer” tent. The local radio station had me up front, and when we moved to the other tent, I was in the back. The DJ knew me personally, and saw that I got a front row spot to stand and sing. It was a great night!
Since you seem to have really bonded with fellow Californian, Chris Montez, and in honor of Cinco de Mayo, which is coming up tomorrow, thought I’d offer you some info with which you might really impress him (especially if you’re wearing a kilt at the time)! By the way, growing up in So. Calif., I always remember Cinco de Mayo being celebrated but had heard that it was not a holiday celebrated in Mexico itself, which celebrates independence sometime in Sept. . . . .
The first Cinco de Mayo celebration was held in 1862 . . . it was the height of the American Civil War and the French had invaded Mexico. It seems that French sympathies lay with the Confederacy (probably due to all that cotton they imported to fuel their fashion industry), so when the Mexicans defeated them, on May 5, 1862, the Mexican-Americans living in California, whose sympathies lay strongly with the Union, thought it was a day worthy of celebration . . . and, ever since then we have celebrated Cinco de Mayo . . . . a truly Californian holiday!!
Cinco de Mayo Rocks!
(and we ain’t talkin’ Mayonnaise my dear!)
Even here in Canada!
Hi, Peter, Not sure when your note was written, but I wanted to say that you have nice handwriting for a man. Much better that my husband’s, whose is nothing more than chicken scratching.
I think the year was 1965, I remember a legal size paper which was more a newsletter which ended with the comment and the character. I only wish I still had MY copy….Along with the necklace with Peter’s face on one side, and all the Hermits on the other. My happy teen years, thank you Peter!
enjoy bonnie scotland peter don’t forget a wee dram….dalwinnie is
I just finished watching you on the cet-arts channel and you were great! I loved hearing about how it was for Herman’s Hermits in the 60′s. It sounds like you had alot of fun! I love hearing about your stories growing up! I think it’s very exciteing!
Take care and see you in Niagra Falls!
I remember that, but can’t remember where!
Looking forward to seeing you in Manistee, Michigan in 3 weeks, this will be my first concert!!!! Hope I don’t pass out!! Love you Peter.
Counting the hours now!
Hope to buy you some popcorn and a drink??
We will be on Lot 58, in nthe campground, see you there? Please for a handshake and photo, you can make a little girls dream come true!! Okay, an old girl now!
Love you, and looking forward to seeing you…
Funny coincidence, I just watched a PBS Masterpiece Theater adaptation of Sebastian Faulks’ novel “Birdsong” and, during one scene which took place in Northern France in 1916, a corps of English soldiers was on a few hours’ leave from the trenches and were bathing, en mass, in the local village square, when they spontaneously broke into what was apparently a currently popular song . . . . “I’m Henry The Eighth I Am”! Which brings me around to guessing that your long-lost letter remnant may have been from 1916, when you were touring to support its climbing the charts??? By the way, the soldiers only got through a partial verse . . . . so I don’t know if they knew more verses then you.
By the way, sorry for the typo in the last line . . . . should read “than” you.
I went to the Dallas concert in 1966 (my first concert, too, Betty) and the Fort Worth concert in 1966 a few months later. In the Fort Worth concert, I was up close! I thought I had died and gone to Heaven… I couldn’t believe how cute Peter Noone was!!! I was 16 years old.
I remember that tour. I lived in Michigan, in Monroe which is about 45 minutes south of Detroit. My parents would NEVER let me go to Detroit… but we were planning a vacation in Texas. I knew you would be in Dallas, and looking at the map it was only about an inch (haha) from Austin where my brother lived. I asked my mom if I could go to the concert in Dallas while we were there, and she said “we’ll see”, which really meant no. I didn’t get to see you then, but finally did in 1999… well you know the rest!
July 16th, 1966 Dallas Memorial Auditorium! I was there with my cousin,Ronda. My first concert!
Another link for the year 1966 – US Tour Herman’s Hermits / Eric Burdon and the Animals :
I have not got a clue. I know you sign my cards and albums with the same facial scribbling. When are you coming back to Vegas? I don’t see it on the concert schedule…..What happened with The Cannery? Or The Silverton or The Aliante Hotel and Casino?
Have no clue either but like somebody said it was fun to read. Thanks for post your note from the 60′s!
Reading the back, it appears to be a page from the fan club newsletter, like Karen (KT) said. Would you have written the note around the same time as this photo was taken? http://www.hermanshermits.com/photos/herman/herman83.html It looks like Karen (KT) pinpointed the tour you mentioned!
Was Susan Baker your fan club president back then?
This looks like it’s written on the back of an itinerary of some sort – hard to read the backwards and faint typing on the other side, but I think I might have spotted “tour of Finland” … does that help narrow it down?
Hold On…I think that “formal” Herman cartoon could be Herb Anderson–the actor from a certain HH film…I can see the note was written on the back of some typed correspondence that was handy at the moment. Typewriters and Paperback Writers…my guess is 1966.
Probably sometimes in the sixty’s before facebook and twitter. Lol
Well I have no clue as to what year it could be. But it is an adorable note and I think we here are all very lucky that you never throw anything out! Not good stuff anyway. Thanks for REALLY stopping by the fanclub today. See you soone!!
I’m thinking either the summer of 1965 or 1966. I saw you in 1965 in June.
That was the beginning of my whirled with the hermits with Peter Noone.
Not a clue – I think that one is before my time being Clubbed! I’ll bet someone around this whirrled knows, though!
Googled you and the hermits……what a fun note. Was it in the fan club newsletter?
