About Peter and Gordon

Peter and Gordon were a British Invasion-era duo formed by Peter Asher and Gordon Waller (d. 17 July 2009), who achieved fame in 1964 with A World Without Love, and had several subsequent hits in that era. Peter Asher and his sister, actress Jane Asher were child actors.They played brother and sister in a 1955 episode of The Adventures of Robin Hood. Jane Asher dated the Beatles' Paul McCartney, and Peter and Gordon recorded several songs written by McCartney but credited to Lennon_McCartney, as was most work by either Lennon or McCartney at that time. Those hits included A World Without Love (U.S. #1), Nobody I Know, I Don't Want To See You Again, and Woman. On Woman, McCartney used the pseudonym Bernard Webb to see if he could have a hit song without his name attached. The song reached number 14 in the US and number 28 on the British charts. Peter and Gordon also recorded the John Lennon-penned Lennon_McCartney song, ..If I Fell.
