This is the third time I am seeing Peter Noone, of Herman's Hermits. He is adorable, extremely talented, a gifted musician and comic, and sixty five years old. As he says on stage " this is the only time I can act like I am 19, and look like I am 65." I noticed a slight limping, on stage, which made me love him more since my back has been acting up as well.
What I did not know is each performer came with his own fans. My cousin and sitting neighbors were die hard David Cassidy fans. I do remember the long hair, cute smile and The Patridge family. Even if the performers no longer look the same they sound exactly as they did , in their glory days. Happily they looked age appropriate, too.
I got home and googled the boys. I read about their marriages, children and careers. I knew every word to every song Peter sang. Some audience members could not restrain themselves, danced in the isles, tried to hug the performers. We all sang, clapped and wiggled and were kids again. The ticket being a small price to journey back in time, even for just a few hours.
I spoke to Peter, my heart be still, and bought a CD and took these pictures. I told him we come to his shows. he said he was gratful and would be returning in October. He was wearing a lot of stage make-up and his wrinkles were prominent, up close. Can you get cuter then that? It made me wish I was Mrs. Brown's lovely daughter.... and I CAN be again in October.
