Now I have discovered Peter's web site I enjoy re-visiting to see if there is any more news. I note that Beverley in the Guest Book would like to obtain Peter's 'Rarities' CD. I have recently obtained this by e-mailing www.offbeat.com.au and a very helpful gentleman there said he could assist and within a week it was with me. I feel really pleased that I have obtained this and love listening to it. I am astonished by the amount of people who obviously feel the same as me at Peter's passing (although who can blame them). He was very much in my thoughts on the 13th and I spent a few hours just listening to 'Rarities' and the New Seekers.

Well they may have Blue and Busted today, but back in the 70's we had Peter Doyle and The New Seekers - what happy memories I have of those days. I thought Mr Doyle was a very talented man, but never got the recongnition he deserved, I am so pleased he now has a Web Site dedicated to him. Loads of Love Lesley xxx

Today is Peter's dying day. I can still hardly believe that he is not with us anymore, that I can never meet him anymore. My thoughts will be with his wife Jane and his family. Peter, forever in my heart.

As ever, Gwyneth, the site inproves with each and every vist. Chorleywood was certainly an experience and I know that Peter was in our hearts and minds that day. Still sadly missed, but always fondly remembered.

I was saddened when I found out about Peters death only recently, he was always my favourite New Seeker and I can remember being absolutely devastated and crying buckets when he left the group.I often wondered what he did afterwards as I never heard anything about him. I love his Skin Deep album and know it off by heart.Its very sad that he died so young, it was like hearing about the death of an old friend, he was a big part of my young life in the short time he was in the New Sekers.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Peter's web site. I wondered why he looked like later on. I have been listening to the New Seekers a lot recently having got 3 CD's previously having vinyl and haven't heard them for years. I can't stop listening to them! For me it was Peter's vocals that made the group special, one of my favourite songs being 'My Sweet Louise'.

Just got back from holiday and great to re-visit this site and 'catch up'. Played Rarities to and from a trip to Venice and whilst flying over the Alps - you must try it sometime! He's just brilliant wherever you are in the world. Jan Kelsey

I had the pleasure of knowing Peter through his wife Jane since 1987. A person worth knowing and sadly missed. A man who did not know the depth of his own talent. I play his music regularly and each time I hear it I realise what the world has lost with his passing.

In 70's, my father brought an LP under the title 'beautiful people' from Libya. I was born in 80's and through out my childhood, i listened to that album and loved it dearly but i loved one song above all, ;cincinnati; sung by a beautiful voice, the voice of Peter Doyle. I knew nothing about him back then except that i loved that beautiful voice. Years after i got my hands on computer and the internet, and then yesterday, when i tried to know more about him, my heart filled with sorrow and pain to find out he is no longer with us. 'I will never find another you' Peter. May God bless you.

Today would have been Peters 55th birthday. So sad that he has been taken from us. I loved Peter with all my heart when I was a young teenager. I will never forget him, and the happy memories he has given me. With all my love, Sylvia.

Peter's birthday on the 28th of July, it would have been his 55th. I'll be flying home to Holland from Canada and remembering his birthday. Gwyneth, thanks for another beautiful page and the lovely photos. Forever in my heart.

I must admit I was never a great fan of Peter Doyle or pop music in general, although I greatly admired the talent of the 60's band The Groove, but it saddens me enormously to learn of his death. He was an integral part of what Australian popular music was to develop into (I first saw him performing at the 10th Avenue, in Bourke Street), and as such I an glad for your site to his memory. Vale Peter. Lucio

Well done Gwyneth for creating such a tasteful and obviously popular website. I don't know Peter Doyle's work at present but I intend to find out more about him, purely because of your site and Paula, who directed me to it.

Congratulations on Rarities CD - Neil, John and Jane. It is a fitting tribute to Peter. Bobby Bright heard it the other day and was quite moved by Pete's rousing rendition of Irish Eyes, saying Peter was yet another Australian music talent whose best work was largely unrecognised in his homeland. I first met Peter when I was 19 and he was about 17 or 18 singing with Grandma's Tonic (before the Virgils and New Seekers). This website and the CD bring back many memories of that great voice and a mate we'll remember for his whacky humor, warmth and sincerity. Vaya Con Dios, Peter. ron coleman.

Just got my copy of the Rarities CD. Congratulations to everyone involved in putting it together. At last some of Peter's work is available for his fans. If anyone has trouble getting a copy, feel free to email me and I will be happy to help. I visited Muckleford on the weekend and paid my respects at Peter's resting place. I also caught up with Jane and saw the plaque that will soon adorn Pete's grave. It's a fitting tribute to a Great Mate and one that i'm sure would raise a wry smile from our Dear Stanley. Cheers Buda, Alison, Melanie and Shannon

Thank you for keeping the memory of such a wonderful artist alive. It brings back such wonderful momories of my adolescence when the New Seekers were No. 1 for me and my friends. Does anybody out there have any current information on Eve Graham--I would love to contact her or at least find out what she is doing now? Keep up the good work.

Hi, I would like to know if any of you could send me a copy of articles about Peter Doyle or Eve Graham in Brittish newpapers or magazines. I missed everything that was published after their New Seekers' period. If you do, please e-mail me about this. And Margareth Hughan, do you remember me, we used to be penpals when we were thirteen. Please e-mail me, for old times' sake. Kind regards, Romy

Thanks again, I am continuing to enjoy and visit this site. I have managed to get a DVD of The New seekers in concert at The Albert Hall now and it brought back such wonderful memories. Did anyone attend the fanclub concert at Hammersmith Palais? I was only 11 years old and it was my first 'pop' concert - very sedate in comparison to those I have attended since! keep up the good work, it is much appreciated.

Thank you for this beautiful site for Peter. I too am very glad that he met and married the love of his life and spent many happy years with her before his early death. As everyone else I was shocked to hear that Peter is no longer with us. To his wife and family I would like to say I'm thinking of them and wish them a lot of strength to carry the big losses of their brother and father and husbands. You have given us a beautiful person (the best singer there ever was)and we will always remember him. Thank you.

I am so glad that this website exists. I was a huge fan of Peter's when he was in the New Seekers and very sorry he left. I tried to follow him but over the years lost track. I was stunned to read of his early death. The click you feature as a tribute was very moving - the first time I've seen Peter Doyle in the 30 years since I saw him in concert. I will certainly bookmark this and look forward to the CD.

The girls in my class had Donny or David or Gilbert but I had Peter..much more class, hidden depths and mystery! We didn't have access to much t.v. so when the Coca Cola ad. came on my sisters would shout 'it's on' and I'd come crashing through the house for my 30 seconds of heaven. I collected the NS albums and always loved the songs Peter had written for them. Tonight for some reason I came across this site...I feel like part of my youth has died and I'm very sad that Peter has passed away. He had a great talent and I'm glad he had a happy life. He was the best introduction to teenage love a girl could ask for.....

This is a fantastic site dedicated to someone with a wealth of talent and a refreshing lack of ego. My sister used to attend many 'Dances' around Melbourne and she introduced me to Peter's talents and the talents of other Australian artists via our family 'record-player'. Sadly most Australians really don't recognize or appreciate the talent(s) we have produced in this country however sites such as yours help keep the memories fresh and alive. Thank you.
