I'll admit that during the 60s I was deep into the Beatles, Monkees, and others, but I have lately had the pleasure of attending a concert in Mount Vernon Ohio with Peter Noone and even got the meet him. I must say that the concert was great and the cds I have listened to made wonder what planet I was on. They are great too! I wasn't listening to it enough back then. Herman's Hermits were a huge part of the British invasion that affected all of rock and molded what has been nothing but great influence for the future of music. They are highly underated and if you take the time to listen to atleast some of their best songs I think many agree. By the way Peter I was the guy in line with the gray shirt that you autographed that wasn't a Herman's Hermit shirt, but I wanted to meet you. You could have said "hey what did you buy"? I did buy some cds later and he even autographed those too. Peter Noone could not be nicer and more deserving. He is greatly talented, underated, and no one takes more time for his fans. This band deserves it and should have already been inducted ahead of some of the ones, some of which I don't understand how they got inducted before Herman. Look Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Induct the ones from the early years first before you worry about some of these newer bands that may get a chance later. Atleast do the right thing and get Herman's Hermits in now. Just a thought.....Don

as opposed to leting in all the more innovative and, frankly, better Manchester bands before them?

Like The Hollies.

I love Herman's Hermits, but I wouldn't put them in. They were only a group when on the road. In the studio (at least most of the time), it was Noone singing and a bunch of studio musicians... not the actual group doing it. It's pretty common knowledge, as Peter has said it in interviews. I think that will hurt their chances more than anything else.

Just got their GH record & listened to it. Love the 'I'm into Something Good' song & The 'Mrs Brown' song is great also. On the whole, though, they just don't have the amount of good material to get in.

How could you not like Enery the 8th?

Just 1 question.

Dameon said: 'How could you not like Enery the 8th? It's like Sweet's "Little Willy". A classic pop song that was funny and strange all at the same time.'

the innocence of pure Brtish rock..At its best..

I heard the band didn't like the songs "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter" and "I'm Henry the 8th I Am" after they came out. Oh well, I sure do!

I love Herman's Hermits music and truly believe Peter Noone should be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. He has more than enough hits to deserve being considered and he STILL has all the same talent and stage presence he had back when he was 16, plus some and is constantly adding to his fan base! Go see him LIVE in 2009 and you'll agree!!

I live about 50 mi from The Rock Hall. I was at the Mt Vernon, Ohio show. I just saw Peter Noone at the 2009 Moon Dog Coronation Ball. I've been an HH fan since the day before dirt was invented, and a Noonatic since 2001. I have seen Peter many times (And yes I know him too). He never ceases to amaze me. Please check out his web site @ http://www.peternoone.com , and look for a concert near you.

I think Herman's Hermits is long overdue in getting inducted in The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. I first saw Peter Noone in the summer of 2002 at an outdoor concert and it was just fabulous. Other than a great singer Peter Noone is a great entertainer and performer you just can't go wrong with him. I have been to 24 concerts I know for a fact I will never tire of Peter Noone hes that good. The music of Herman's Hermits attracts people of all ages not just the baby boomers that grew up with them. My next concert with Herman's Hermits Starring Peter Noone will be October 4th 2009 In Youngstown,Ohio come and join me I know you will be hooked. The concert in Youngstown will be held at The Stambaugh Auditorium.

Peter Noone absolutely blew me away at the Moondog Ball in 09. I grew up listening to his 45's like all people my age and truly enjoyed his hits. However I found him to be sensational doing a live performance. He can still sing beautifully and entertain the crowd like almost no other

I have always been told that Herman's Hermits were too light weight for rock n roll, and were considered more as pop musicians. Now having said that, I would like to know just how did Madonna AKA "The Queen Of Pop" get in?
Posted by Sue on Saturday, 10.17.09 @ 15:54pm
Just take a listen to Herman's Hermits Dynamic version of "Jezebel" (the old Frankie Laine hit !) .....and their powerful Recording "My Reservations Been Confirmed" before just dismissing them as Mere "Lightweight pop" !

Too many great songs, too many hits, too many worldwide 45 and LP sales, and too much a part of pop culture and notoriety to be overlooked for the Rock Hall--especially when compared to performers who are already in. The charisma and talent of the lead singer, Peter Noone, also must not be overlooked. There are many vocal-only groups in the RRHF, so I don't think that who-played-what in studio sessions should matter. In addition to their three appearances on Ed Sullivan, I have had the rare opportunity to see Herman's Hermits live in three incarnations. First, I saw Peter solo in a 1973 concert at Madison Square Garden in one of the first of the rock revival shows. I also heard and saw Herman's Hermits live circa 1977 at Bridgeview in Valparaiso, Indiana without Peter, and they did, instrumentally, sound just like their recordings. And in January of this year I saw them at a sold-out concert at the Star Plaza in Merrillville, Indiana: Peter and the new Hermits. I wholeheartedly cast my support for Herman's Hermits for induction into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

Dean, I will recycle one of my lines from up above: 'When you have to put the 'Enery the 8th' song on your GH album, then you don't have enough kick ass material, IMO.' to cover my opinion of Herman's Hermits.
Posted by Paul in KY on Friday, 02.12.10 @ 07:38am
Probably not, too similar to some of their contemporaries and I don't really hear significant bands these days going on their hands and knees and singing praise to Herman's Hermits for getting them to pick up a guitar. I love "No Milk Today" though

hey, if the Dave Clark Five are worthy (and they are), then so are Herman's Hermits . . .
Posted by Michael on Tuesday, 02.15.11 @ 15:03pm
I have been a hermans hermits fan since 1964. alot of great songs over the years. sold more records then the beatles in 1965 or 66. saw the orignal band in atlantic city in 1966 or 1967 and have seen them two more times over the years. peter has such energy on stage and with the amount of hits they had in the 60s they deserve to be in the rock and roll hall of fame

After Abba went in, all bets were off. Any pop band fits in. Just please put the Spencer Davis Group in before HH.

Yep, Herman's Hermits were a big deal back in the day. Peter Noone is an awesome entertainer. Just because they were more bubble gum than the Beatles.
Posted by Myrna Mandjikov on Wednesday, 07.8.15 @ 17:26pm
Y'know, I'm gonna kinda agree with Jill. Herman's Hermits are very much like ABBA: ear candy that will never be regarded, but if you like absolutely nothing about or by them, then you are not human--you are the walking dead. There might be room for them in the Hall.... just that there are so many worthy acts ahead of them.
