“From the Beatles to Courtney Love, singer, producer and manager Peter Asher has had a remarkable career. He’ll share anecdotes in shows this week.” Read Jon Bream’s Star Tribune preview from Peter’s 2012 performance here
Peter Asher has had a long and storied career as a performer, a record executive, Grammy-winning producer, and “man about town.” Peter was a key component of the 1960s rock and roll scene and the British Invasion. As half of Peter and Gordon, Asher scored hits with “World Without Love” and “I Go to Pieces.” Asher has a unique perspective on this and other elements of popular culture. Peter Asher’s “Musical Memoir of the 60s and Beyond” is a multimedia concert full of insightful anecdotes about this frenzied chapter of Rock & Roll history featuring the music of Peter and Gordon, along with other characters from the time:
Paul McCartney, who dated Asher’s sister
Yoko Ono, whose art was shown at a gallery Peter helped run
Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful, who Asher introduced to each other shortly after Faithful’s wedding
James Taylor, who Asher signed to Apple Records and later produced and managed
and a host of others.
Steve Martin and Edie Brickell’s “Love Has Come For You” — produced by Peter Asher — won the Grammy for “Best American Roots Song” at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
