The Herd reached #6 in Britain in 1967 with From The Underworld.
The blossoming of ‘flower power’ at that time brought the group two more hits in 1968 with Paradise Lost and the superb I Don’t Want Our Loving To Die.
The band was originally managed by Peter Frampton‘s art teacher father, Owen ‘Ossie’ Frampton, who insisted that his son got only £15 a week – the same as he would working at the post office. His services were soon dispensed with!
Despite great musicianship (notably from Frampton), the band declined after that.
Frampton re-emerged as a member of Humble Pie and eventually went on to international superstardom with a highly successful career as a solo performer in the 1970s.
