Peter Noone Releases Tribute to John Lennon

Noone Lennon singleToday (10/9) would’ve been John Lennon’s 75th birthday. To honor his memory, Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits is releasing the digital single, “I Can’t Imagine (A Tribute to John Lennon).”

The song was written by producer Don Cusic shortly after Lennon’s death in 1980, but it wasn’t until 2012 that it was finally dusted off for Noone to sing. It seemed a perfect fit to have a fellow musician of the British Invasion perform the song. Noone jumped at the opportunity.

“I am pretty spiffed at the way it turned out,” says Noone. “Lennon used to buy me drinks in London after sessions at EMI’s Studios on Abbey Road. He would say, ‘They have a two drink minimum and you aren’t 18, so you get two cokes Herman, and I’ll get two Bacardis.’”

Each verse is a loving ode to the singer and songwriter who touched the lives of so many: “I know there’s a reason why you’re not here, maybe it’s to show us that dreams live on, and the songs are still sung though the singer is gone.”

The tune, released via Plowboy Records, is available for digital download on iTunes.
