“If Peter Asher were trying to condense his remarkable résumé, he could simply write: the Forrest Gump of rock. Since the 1960s, he’s been nearly everywhere.”—Jon Bream, Minneapolis Star Tribune
“As Mr. Asher regaled a delighted audience with stories . . . he conjured history in the making, before it was set in stone.”—New York Times
Peter Asher was a key component of the 1960s rock and roll scene and the British Invasion. As half of Peter and Gordon, his first U.S. release was the global smash hit “World without Love.” Asher became a music executive with the Beatles’ Apple Records, then producer and manager, handling the careers of James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, and a host of others. Backed by a four-piece band, along with film footage and photos from Asher’s considerable personal archive, this show transports audiences back to the heart of 1960s popular culture. Icons such as Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Marianne Faithful, Yoko Ono, Carole King, James Taylor, and Linda Ronstadt are among the cast of characters in this narrative.
