Herman's Hermits Starring Peter Noone

Followers of the Frock

I am sure you already know the Rocking Reverend Sung Long seen above on his skate board, and he is back to share his wisdom witheth you.

I want you to confess to me the nastiest thing you have ever done at a Herman’s Hermits concert. Remember that children visit this site, so no jokes about sex, drugs or your Mum’s knickers being tossed.

Off you go brethren and followers of the Frock!

    Hi Pete! My family and I are looking forward to seeing you at EPCOT. Thank you for all those great songs. P.S. Elvis sends you his best wishes.

    Hi Peter – I am a little upset you and the Hermits are not coming to Vegas in September @ the Cannery. I look forward to that event! I forgive the Hermits or the Cannery, whoever didn’t make the arrangements. The band AMERICA is coming to the Cannery on June 30th! I am not even going to that awesome show!! Checked on the seating yesterday (Sunday), and only outside back bleecher seats are available…. TOO HOT and far away to see Dewey and Gerry. My luck is not good right now. I hope you and the guys can get to Vegas before the year is out.. Please……

      HH play on the other side of town now at The SOUTH POINT CASINO.

    The Reverend Sung Long Noone, Herman, Peter, Henry VIIIth, it must be hard to be so many people, or do you have that many personalities?

    Oh Peter …that picture is too crazy looking I couldn’t stop laughing ! forgive me..

  6. Madison June 15, 2012 at 7:16 PM

    I remember I was 13 years old, and I practically froze when you came out on the stage. I was so laid back about talking about you all of the time, but when I saw you in person I was starstruck. You were the reason I started my own local rock band. (I’m used to you now though, so I’m not quite as shy.) I also am glad that I was lucky enough to own Hermaniacs and Noonatics. I love managing that group.

    I must reconfess that I didn’t do my part when attending a concert on the Hottest day EVER at Hershey Park, Pa.

    Herman came off the stage and was walking amongst us in the front row..when he was talking about his Noonatics and how they follow him all over…Stopping in front of me..he said “And you’re from Florida” Somehow out of my mouth came NO…Herman said OK and did a turn about on his heels…

    Later that night in chat he told me there was nowhere to go with NO..I claimed it must have been the heat..or the smell of all the chocolate..LOL

    I think I’ve been forgiven..??

  8. LeAnn June 11, 2012 at 4:40 PM

    I seem to remember something about Union Jack ponchos and a sign that said “‘Spit Happens” We happened to be in the front of the stage. I am much older now and much more mature (well, just don’t ask any of my fellow Noonatics!!! ) The Surf Ballroom will never be the same!!!! It was a fun night!!!

  9. Betty/Doches Darlin June 11, 2012 at 4:30 PM

    I don’t think I’ve ever done anything nasty at a concert. May I be forgiven in advance should I have any such inclinations at future concerts?

  10. Roselyn June 11, 2012 at 12:08 PM

    I guess the worse thing I ever did at a concert is try to hug Herman. I have been a fan since his birth but never made it to a concert until summer of ’05, not counting one at what use to be called the Star Lake Amphitheater in Pittsburgh in ’92 when I was up on a hill with young children and he was a gold-suited mini-Herman. So, at that “first” concert, I was over-excited and when it was my turn to get an autograph, I reached over with a big, stupid grin and gave him a little hug and asked my daughter to take a picture. He accepted it and was very patient – but please forgive me for this brief indiscretion. If I were in Herman’s shoes I wouldn’t want to be hugged by a long line of strangers either! Yuk! (My blog posts haven’t been posting so I hope this one posts.)

    • Lady K / Ms. Cupcake June 11, 2012 at 3:05 PM

      I don’t know……..hugs are a good thing……..as long as the other person’s not slobbering or trying to French kiss ya!

      • Shelagh June 11, 2012 at 10:56 PM

        oh my Roselyn, you naughty girl!!

        • Roselyn June 12, 2012 at 1:32 PM

          Well, I didn’t want to mention that I admire his arsets during concerts. LOL! (And I know he doesn’t like hugs.) :)

          • Lady K / Ms. Cupcake June 12, 2012 at 4:23 PM

            On 2nd thought…….what a bloody nightmare. Many American artists charge at least $1oo bucks for a meet & greet. Monsieur Noone & other British artists I’ve met……ie. Petula Clarke, Chad & Jeremy…. provide this free. I greatly admire them for this, but it is up to them to set their personal boundaries on hugging…..

  11. Cathy D. June 10, 2012 at 7:10 PM

    I’m always well-behaved at concerts. Can you see my halo?

  12. David (The Villages) June 9, 2012 at 11:43 AM

    Are you in the same Order as Fr. Guido Sarducci? His words have given me great confort over the years.

  13. Miss Lou June 9, 2012 at 6:31 AM

    Dear Reverend–I must confess everytime I look at the concert schedule and it only goes to December 2 I say a bad word. What should I do about that??

  14. IdaM June 9, 2012 at 4:37 AM

    I remember in the auto line some young ladies ahead of us were flirting with you and trying to get you into their hot tub. You said “Oh you don’t want to see me in a hot tub” lol.

  15. kdpt June 8, 2012 at 9:37 PM

    I must confess for a fellow concert goer – she fell asleep during Henry VIII! When Herman noticed her, he made light of her, and then I smacked her. It figures that she would pick the loudest, most audience interactive song during which to take a “power nap” as she called it.

  16. Shelagh June 8, 2012 at 9:03 PM

    What a week Reverend, not only did I just watch your PBS Special but I found out there is a Panera Bread opening up in my town. Can’t help but smile.

  17. Norma June 8, 2012 at 7:54 PM

    Okay, I confess I am guilty of taking flash pictures when they said No Flash Picture taking is allowed. But how could I resist, I’m a Noonatic!

    I’ll be at another concert in a few weeks in Chambersburg, Pa. I’ll try to be good!

    • Sue June 12, 2012 at 6:17 PM

      Been a Peter Noone fan forever, but last year was my first concert since the ’60s at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. I tried to take a picture while waiting in the auto line and was briskly corrected by one of the merchandise sellers. I will also be in Chambersburg! Can’t wait!

  18. southavery June 8, 2012 at 7:33 PM

    Dear Reverend Sung Long, It has been six months since my last concert but I am looking forward to your service in Chambersburg. I have sinned by attempting to take photos in the autograph line, however, I have also tried to spread the faith of noonacy by sharing glowsticks with the unclubbed. Hope that grants me some indulgence!

  19. Alice M. June 8, 2012 at 5:24 PM

    Oh Reverend, I have laughed uncontrollably at Herman when he lowered the microphone and got on his knees to sing like Davy Jones, when he turned his jacket inside out when singing a Tom Jones song and then couldn’t get it back on properly, when he has commented on the knickers tossed to the stage and when he has had to bless Norman for acting out on stage. Herman even caught me laughing once and told me it wasn’t polite to laugh at others pain. What should I do if I feel the urge to giggle again in Ft. Wayne?

  20. Eu June 8, 2012 at 2:44 PM

    Someone threw frillies on the stage. You put them on and I confess… I looked! Ooops!

  21. gayle June 8, 2012 at 1:46 PM

    Not sure if this would be considered a “nasty” but at the first concert I ever attended I was awestruck. So, when I realized you were signing autographs after the show, I completely cut the line, bought a Cd and rushed to get your signature. Father, forgive me for I know not what I do at concerts.

  22. MNMike June 8, 2012 at 12:58 PM

    I suffer from Selecting Slow Lines Syndrome, and an episode occurred last summer in Coralville, IA…After 20+ minutes of waiting for a port-a-potty, I was nearly there when HHSPN hit the stage. What timing: finally bursting into the biff with the energetic irony of hearing “…something tells me I’m into something good!” How about that for a sinful (missing the song), nasty (smell!) memory?!?

    • Herman June 8, 2012 at 5:05 PM

      Many entertainers think their fans are potty, but in this case you are forgiven for your indulgences!
      The smell is the smell of others, so forgive them for they know not what they poo!

      • Claudia B June 9, 2012 at 5:38 PM

        Dearest Herman: Are you fully aware that you hit the jackpot and got a 2-fer in Mike’s response?? Both “sinful” and “nasty” at the same concert . . . what could be more appalling (but only in the most exciting way)! But, to turn tables for a moment, for inspiration’s sake, could you give us a taste of YOUR most “sinful and nasty” concert memories??

  23. Lynn June 8, 2012 at 11:53 AM

    again, the answer is the fifth. :)

  24. Trish June 8, 2012 at 10:26 AM

    Bless me Reverend for I have sinned! I waited fifteen months between concerts, and I continue to do penance for that. I don’t recall doing anything nasty at a concert, but you never know…

    I am also on my brand new MacBook Pro. This is the first time I’m using it, and of course the first place I came was your website. Does this count as penance?

  25. noonaticterry June 8, 2012 at 9:49 AM

    I have many nasty things to confess to you we do at your concert which would be to long for you to read. One thing is Dennis and I always have a fab time at your concerts as you know.. One big nasty thing I did was slash your cheek with my hippy glasses at NoonefestOne which I am sure you will never forget. So what pew do i go for absolution?

  26. Andrea Sheffield June 8, 2012 at 8:35 AM

    Dear Reverend,

    I must confess! I was at your Manistee concert a couple weeks ago. I was a bad girl, because I could not stop taking photo’s and movie’s of you, and the guy behind me got mad for occasionally blocking his view. I finally put down my camera and glow sticks, etc. I was torn between enjoying my first concert of yours, or making a stranger happy. I didn’t know what to do, but I didn’t get as many photo’s as I would have liked. I hope you forgive me??

  27. mj June 8, 2012 at 7:57 AM

    I confessed this once before but….. you were on top of me in Niagara Falls! Based on the pictures, your room was above mine!!!

    • Claudia B June 8, 2012 at 3:54 PM

      mj, have you ever considered becoming a missionary?? I believe you would be in a good position to do so . . . .

  28. jillcarroll June 8, 2012 at 7:09 AM

    I will ask for forgiveness in advance for the excessive singing and dancing I’ll be doing at your show tonight. There may be other things, too (glow sticks?) Will see what happens, I may have more to confess tomorrow ;-)

  29. Shelagh June 7, 2012 at 11:14 PM

    Guess what? There is a Panera Bread opening up in my town. Funny how excited I am!!!! Oh revererend I need your help now.

  30. June Bug June 7, 2012 at 10:54 PM

    It has been a long time since I have talked to you Reverend. I must have forgotten all the nasty things I have done at concerts for I can’t remember doing them. I will try to jog my memory and stop by again.
