Peter Asher

Peter Asher, CBE was born in London June 22, 1944, the son of a doctor and a professional musician. He was educated at Westminster School in London and at Kings College, London University, where he studied philosophy.

Peter’s entry into the world of the performing arts was as a child actor. At the age of eight he starred in his first film, “The Planter’s Wife” as the son of Claudette Colbert and Jack Hawkins. He went on to act extensively in various film, TV, radio and stage productions.

His legendary music career began in 1964 as one-half of the singing duo Peter & Gordon, who amassed nine Top 20 records during their career. Their debut single, “A World Without Love” –a song given to them by Paul McCartney – went to number one in over 30 countries, including the U.S. and U.K. In 1968, Mr. Asher became head of A&R for the Beatles newly formed record company, Apple Records, where he found, signed and produced James Taylor and worked closely with the Beatles on their individual projects. During this period he became a key figure in the “revolution” of The Sixties, founding the book shop and art gallery “Indica” (where John and Yoko met and where Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs visited) and found himself at the centre of an era of profound social and artistic change.

Jeremy Clyde

To start with, the timing wasn't great. He was born at a truly bad moment, March 1941, when Britain Stood Alone and things looked grim indeed. Later, things picked up. At school, his piano teacher hit him every time he made a mistake, which swiftly led to taking up the ukelele. And then folky guitar stuff. He met a chap at drama school, one David Stuart Chadwick, known to all as Chad. He played better. He also played piano. So, the usual thing... they had a college band for a while, The Jerks. Drama school over, off to be a Proper Actor, to a rep season in Dundee, Scotland. Damn chilly. Then back to conquer London. Bad timing... Equity, the actor's union, is on strike. Thus, call old pal Chad which led to singing in a bar which led to John Barry checking them out and signing them up. Their first effort "Yesterday's Gone" was a minor hit in the UK, but things really took off in the USA where, in the slipstream of The Fabs, anyone with a record and hair was in with a chance.

Success followed. Seven Top Forty hits, it says here. "A Summer Song" is the big one. "Trees swaying in the summer breeze... silver leaves etc." You probably know it.

But now the so-called British Invasion is over; big serious albums are in. Check out The Ark, if that's your thing. Album stiffs, nowadays a big cult number. So, back to England and that acting career. Got v. lucky, v. quickly... BBC series, hit play in the West End, then Broadway. Since then, popping up all over the place on British TV, in the theatre, and occasionally, in films. Lots of hats and facial hair. Lots of period roles. Lots of villains, as well.

But, yesterday hasn't gone yet, it seems, and in the mid 80's they get together again for a bit of touring and recording.
