Personalities | The Herd | Sixties | Rock

(Vocal group, 1965–71)

This London outfit reached No. 6 in Britain with funereal ‘From The Underworld’. Its soundalike follow-up ‘Paradise Lost’ was a lesser UK smash, but singing guitarist Peter Frampton was to be Rave! magazine’s ‘Face Of ‘68’. While ‘I Don’t Want Our Loving To Die’ returned them to the Top 10, that was that for The Herd as far as the record-buying public was concerned. Nevertheless, they soldiered on for two more years after the injurious defection of Frampton to Humble Pie in 1969.
