I Kissed a Hermit and I Liked It!

January 31, 2016

Nah, not some bearded old guy living in a cabin in the woods, but Karl Green, bassist for Herman’s Hermits–cutie pie Karl with his irresistible British accent. Be still my heart! I first met Peter “Herman” Noone and his Hermits, Keith Hopwood (guitar), Derek Leckenby (lead guitar), Barry Whitwam (drums) and Karl Green (bass), in […]

October 12, 2013

In my blog post “My Trip to the Rainbow Planet,” I told you about reuniting with Jim “Harpo” Valley of Paul Revere and the Raiders. Once connected via Facebook, we madly emailed back and forth. Later, we even Skyped once, and I met his lady love, Wendy, and got a tour of his home and […]

August 11, 2013

It didn’t take a DeLorean time machine to take me right back to 1967 last Friday night. Seeing the Monkees – Mike, Peter and Micky – live at the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, Arizona took my heart and mind back to the first Monkees performance I ever attended at the Cow Palace in San […]
