The Herd Take Over As Screamers' New Idols

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 28 October 1967

MY CONTENDER as the man "most likely to get ripped to pieces by hysterical females" in 1967 is Peter Frampton, the seventeen-year-old vocal-guitarist with the Herd. The signs are already ominous, as he regularly loses a shirt on personal appearances, and quite recently was pursued around Streatham Ice Rink by a bevy of berserk "birds" on skates.
