Rock Musician. A guitarist, he was a featured member of the music group the Ides of March. Formed in Chicago, the were initially called the Shon-Dels and modeled themselves from the "British Invasion" bands of that time period. Their first record was the single "Like it Or Lump it" (1965) and after signing with the Parrot record label they underwent the name change the Ides of March to avoid confusion with Tommy James and the Shondells. Further singles were released among them "You Wouldn't Listen" (1966) and following their signing with the Warner label, a complete sound change which included a horn section took place resulting with their signature hit "Vehicle" (peaking at number 2 on the Pop Charts during the Spring of 1970). After they disbanded during the 1970s, Herr remained in the music industry performing at clubs in the Chicago-area. He died from esophageal cancer. (bio by: C.S.)
