Peter & Gordon were a duo, formed by Peter Asher and Gordon Waller. It was their song, "A World Without Love" that rocketed them to fame in 1964. Their music was chiefly a mix of folk, blues and rock 'n' roll with a tinge of English flavor. Waller and Asher were school buddies at the Westminster School for Boys in London. While Peter was more into Jazz and folk, Gordon was a thorough rock 'n' roll fan who idolized Elvis.

They started practising and singing together for sheer fun and later for free food in a local pub. Later, they got a regular booking at a place called 'The Pickwick Club' in London. It was there that they met Norman Newell, an A&R man for EMI Records who later signed them to a contract. This was during the time when Paul McCartney was dating Peter's sister Jane Asher, so he taught them his early composition "World Without Love", which the Beatles had never used. This song was an instant hit in both the US and the UK in 1964. The two also gained hits with the Lennon and McCartney's "Nobody I Know" and "I Don't Want to See You Again", both the songs were unused by the Beatles. Thus in no time they zoomed into popularity. Peter and Gordon with their keen sense of song hunting pounced upon "I Go To Pieces" while on a tour in Australia with Del Shannon and The Searchers. It was another unwanted song which Del was playing for 'the Searchers' in their dressing room and they didn't want it, but Peter & Gordon did. Buddy Holly's "True Love Ways" and Phil Spector's "To Know You Is To Love You", gained the duo well-fared position the in the US charts. Their steady flow of good music continued from 1966 to 67 with beautiful songs like "Lady Godiva" and "Knight in Rusty Armour" and parent-pleasing pop like "Sunday For Tea".

Their records featured many notable musicians like John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin playing bass and the late Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones on guitar. Peter & Gordon always played rhythm guitar on their albums, for "I Go To Pieces" Gordon played the 12-string guitar. The lead guitar was never their thing. However, after sharing their bonding for four years with ten top-ranking songs, the duo went their separate ways. Peter Asher went and became an A&R director for the Beatles' Apple Records and in 1977 was voted "Producer of the Year" by Rolling Stone Magazine. In 1989, for a second time he was named "Producer of the Year" which secured him a position at Sony Music Entertainment as Senior Vice President.

However, Gordon Waller continued making music and in 1970 he released an album called "....and Gordon". In l971, Gordon played the part of Pharaoh in the musical "Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at the Edinburgh Festival. The show was a big hit and it was then staged at various venues like, The Roundhouse in North London, The National Theatre, Young Vic and finally into the West End where Gordon received standing ovations every night for the run of the play. In early 2002, Peter was made the co-President of Sanctuary Artist Management and in January, 2005, he was named President of the firm
