Peter Noone has been delighting audiences for most of his life first as a child actor and later as the lead singer of Herman’s Hermits. In 1964, the band attained international success when their first single, “I’m Into Something Good,” topped the British charts and reached the top 20 in the U.S. Herman’s Hermits continued their run of success with number one hits “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and “I’m Henry VIII, I Am.” Ultimately, Herman’s Hermits sold more than 60 million recordings, recorded 14 gold singles and seven gold albums, and were twice named Cashbox’s “Entertainer of the Year.”
As a lead singer of The Monkees, Micky Dolenz helped launch the group into the phenomenon known as “Monkeemania.” The group’s debut single “Last Train to Clarksville” hit the charts in 1966 and rocketed to number one, followed by two more consecutive number one singles “I’m a Believer” and “Daydream Believer.” Their first four albums all topped the charts and were certified gold while the singles “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday” steadily climbed the charts. The Monkees starred on the hit television show named after them and in the 1969 cult classic movie “Head.”
Mark Lindsay gained popularity as the lead singer and saxophonist for Paul Revere & the Raiders. After catching Dick Clark’s attention, the group was signed as regular performers on the television show “Where the Action Is” and later on “Happening ’68.” Early hit singles from the band include “Freeborn Man,” “Hungry,” “Kicks” and “Him or Me.” In 1971, the group attained number one status with the track “Indian Reservation,” selling nearly four million copies and breaking the record as the highest selling single in Columbia Records’ history to that point. After selling more than 50 million albums worldwide and earning numerous gold and platinum awards with The Raiders, Lindsay pursued a solo career and recorded a series of hit singles including “Silverbird” and the platinum track “Arizona.”
