Thank you Gwyneth for the link to my Laurie Allen tribute, thank you for giving me the inspiration and encourgement to do my little tribute for Laurie...I was well and truly in the thick of the Melbourne 60's mainly because of Laurie Allen but before the GO Show started and I first saw Laurie there was Swallows Juniors and I had one big crush on the little fella called Peter Doyle, I thought is was just beautiful, I am so glad you have paid tribute to him because I know to be remembered is more important to the artists than all the money and trimmings, after all wouldn't we all liked to be remembered...you have a lovely sight for Peter Gwyneth, a very well deserved tribute..... Bonnie from the land of Oz....

Two years already... ...as I've said before, at least Peters' voice will live on. Listening to 'Goin' Back' now - simply beautiful.

I couldn't let today, the 2nd anniversary of Peter's passing, go without saying that we still think of you often Peter, and still get enormous pleasure out of listening to your music. Fond thoughts to Jane and all his family today and always.

Listening to Ed Stewart on radio 2 on 27th July 2003 I was shocked and greatly saddened to learn of Peter's death. Managed to get my cousin to find details on the net. Still in shock! Wonderful singer/songwriter who never got the recognition he deserved. Glad to hear that he was married and enjoying his life in the 1990s. My thoughts are with his widow Jane, sister Kerryl and mother Jean. He is with all the other great singers in heaven now - what fabulous music they must be making!!

I stumbled across this Website by accident on Peter's Birthday yesterday. I could not believe it when I read that he had died in 2001, so so sad. A great Talent who's music will live on forever. Best Wishes to his wife Jane, my thoughts are will you. Take Care.

Hi, was searching for news of NS when I found Lyn Paul's website and discovered with sadness about Peter's death. Peter was my first heartthrob, at the tender age of 12 I fell in love and cried with anguish every time I saw him on TV. I was a memeber of the fan club and also went to the free concert at Hammersmith Palais (travelling with a friend of the same age, without an adult - the mind boggles). I still have my original vinyl and listen to the music every few years or so, still getting goosebumps when I hear Peter's fantastic voice. I had always wondered what had happened to Peter over the years, but I'm sure he knew the pleasure he had given to his fans - especially the pubescent girls like me. So sad that he is no longer with us. xxx

Watched 'I love 1972' on TV tonight and saw NS which bought back so many memories of the 70s I thought I'd see if there was anything on the net. Amazing! I found more than I expected. But I also found sadness that Peter (who I loved equally with Marty when I was 14) had died. I never forgot his wonderful voice and some of those songs he wrote back then. Such a major part of my teenage years that I'll neve forget. God Bless You Peter.

I just had to sign in, as a fan of the NS and of Peter, I am so shocked to find out of this great loss to music and to his family and friends. I first caught the NS on the Cliff Richard TV Show in the 70'S. I even joined the fan club and went to see them on my own at the tender age of 13 to see there 'free', yes 'free' concert at the Hammersmith Palais in London. Also I saw them again in Leicester a year or so later. Peter and the rest of the gang where and still are part of my life and have inspired me to pick up the guitar and make people happy, like they did ! Why do the good die young???? I Would just like to say to Peter's family be strong. XX

I was a big NS fan in the 70's and like many lost touch with what the individual members of the group had moved on to. Like many others whose comments I have read I was shocked, heroes never die they live forever, and Peter will live forever in the memories of many like me who loved his music and on stage humour. I was lucky enough to meet him once, a memory which I am now pleased to have. God bless his family.

I've been a fan of the New Seekers since 1971, Lyn Paul was my favourite, but I always thought Peter was a gifted singer/songwriter - 'Lay Me Down', 'Boom Town', 'Unwithered Rose' 'I Can Say You're Beautiful' - and his vocals on 'Goin' Back', 'Blowin' In The Wind', 'Rusty Hands Of Time', 'Reap What You Sow' and the later solo material 'Friday On My Mind' and the 'Skin Deep' album. He is a REAL loss to music, but at least we have his music to remember him by. I'm so glad he found someone to share his life with. I hope Jane takes comfort in the fact that Peter touched so many people's lives through his music and will always be fondly remembered all over the world. An excellent website - keep up the good work! xx

I have been a New Seekers fan from the age of 11, but through circumstances lost touch over the last few years, I found some Ns sites three weeks ago and it was then I learnt of Peter'passing, I cannot tell you what a shock it was, I dont know if we just think our hero's or idol's are super human, but you do not expect to see such sad news...sometimes maybe ignorance is bliss.. He will never be forgotten, at out new seeker get together in September we will be taking time to remember him...and me personally??? I share his birthday 28 July..I can NEVER forget him!!

I found this site today by accident. Great to see such a fine tribute to Peter. I backed Peter on stage a lot during the mid 1960's as a member of The Librettos. I'm pretty sure I played on some of his singles as well. I also travelled to UK on the same ship as The Virgil Bros in 1969. We lost touch after that but he phoned me a few years back and we were going to arrange a get together - sadly, we never did.

Peter Doyle was my sweetheart when I was a teenager. Thirty years have passed now, and somehow - only God knows - today I decided to surf the net and look for any news on my sweetheart whom I had never heard about again since the late 70's - in Portugal I must admit the New Seekers were not very well-known. It was a shock to hear the news! I felt a part of my youth died - one never imagines someone who was part of your youth can just go like that. May you rest in peace, Peter, and thanks for having made me and so many like me believe in dreams-might-come true!!!

My brother found your website. He was (is) a big fan of the New Seekers and Peter in particular. He and I were the only people I knew to own a copy of 'Skin Deep'. An underated album by an underated artist - Some of Peter's vocal hooks from that album and earlier work in the New Seekers still send shivers down my spine. We often spoke of Peter and what he would be up to over the years. Very sad to hear of his passing. I'm still without a decent recording of 'Rusty hands of Time'. I hope the Compilation CD your site talks about contains it. Good luck with the website. I'll keep dropping by.

I am saddened to learn of the death of Jack Doyle and my thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. I am happy to learn that he saw this site before he died - it is, indeed, a fitting tribute to a great musician - he will be in our hearts forever. As an addition to this message - I came across this website: www.network54.com (Google). There appears to be a discussion surrounding Jungle Ted and the Laceybuttonpoppers taking place and, as we know, Peter sang the theme song.
