Hermans' Hermits - Voice Your Choice

Herman's Hermits became of of the most successful of the British Invasion groups of the early-to-mid-1960s. While practically everyone knows Peter Noone, the lead singer and head of the band, not that many know who the rest of the members were. Time to rectify that situation. They were Derek Leckenby and Keith Hopwood on guitars, Karl Green on bass, and Barry Whitwam on drums. The name Herman's Hermits was derived from the cartoon character Sherman on the TV show The Bullwinkle Show.

Before Peter Noone left the group in 1972 for a solo career, Herman's Hermits racked up an impressive 19 charted hits, with 11 in the Top Ten plus 3 Gold Records.

Well he's back with the group again and they are currently on tour; catch them if you can.

Voice Your Choice is pleased to present Herman's Hermits next week on Treasure Island Oldies. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either (What A) Wonderful World or A Must To Avoid. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
