I Heart Hermits

While other girls my age were mooning over the two Coreys and wearing New Kids on the Block buttons as large as a salad plate, I quietly crushed on Davy Jones, Chad & Jeremy and Peter Blair Dennis Bernard Noone. Gently caressing my mom's gatefold LP The Best of Herman's Hermits, I read the liner notes again and again as my heart fluttered for a snaggletoothed English boy. Maybe it didn't occur to me that the photos were 25 years old and that these "boys" were now as old as my father. Maybe I didn't care. I never learned the words to "Hangin' Tough," but I still remember exactly where the Herman's Hermits album skipped on "I'm Henry the VIII, I Am." Shout "H-E-N-R-Y!" along with Herman's Hermits Starring Peter Noone at Billy Bob's Texas, 2520 Rodeo Plaza in Fort Worth, 10:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $10 general admission, $15 reserved. Call 817-624-7117.
Sat., Nov. 11, 10:30 p.m.
