Gordon Waller 1945-2009
Gordon Waller was one half of the 1960's duo Peter & Gordon. Known for singing songs given to them by Paul McCartney, Peter & Gordon were highly successful in the early 60's with hits such as: World Without Love, I Don't Wanna See You Again, I Go To Pieces, Woman, & Nobody I Know.
I had the chance to see him perform a few years ago at Beatlefest in Irvine. He was very funny and still in strong voice. One of the interesting things about seeing him live was how much of an Elvis fan he obviously was. Peter & Gordon's close harmonies remain a huge influence on my music.
