For singer Peter Noone constant touring is just one big adventure

PeterNoone.jpgWhen Peter Noone performs at the Wagner Noel on Friday, the Herman’s Hermits singer might just immortalize his West Texas fans — with a selfie.
His Instagram accounts often features pictures of him with his audiences from the stage. The legendary singer knows how to engage his audiences whether it’s through his social media accounts or his signature hits “I’m Henry VIII, I Am,” “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and more. For him, it’s just all one big thrill ride.
MRT: You seem to consistently tour. How is life on the road these days?
Noone: I’ve never not traveled really. I think I’ve average about 300,000 miles in the last decade. But I always see it as an adventure. Every place is completely different. Even when I go back to them.
MRT: But have you played Midland?
Noone: If I did, it would have been way back, but I don’t think the city was what it is now then. We’ve played Hobbs which I understand is in the area.
MRT: How is touring still an adventure? You’ve been performing since you were 15.
Noone: When I was a kid, I’d go with my parents for a drive to the beach. That was fun but that was our vacation or adventure. Now I get to go everywhere.
Plus, I’m a cultural anthropologist. When I get to places, I ask where everyone is to get a sense of how people live. So, depending on the day, people will be at home or at this particular place or out eating. Wherever I go, I try to find that thing that connects me so I’ll know more about Midland than you think I know.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
