Both pleased & pleasantly surprised to learn recently that Peter Asher and Jeremy Clyde have teamed up & are touring Canada and the U.S.

Back in the day Peter and Gordon scored a number of top forty hits. Likewise another British based duo known as Chad and Jeremy. As bad luck would have it Peter's musical partner Gordon Waller passed away several years ago while Jeremy's longtime musical partner Chad Stuart decided to retire from show business.

So Peter Asher and Jeremy Clyde looked at each other & said "why not?" and hit the road. As they say -- "twice the stories and double the hits" Billed as Peter and Jeremy!

Never thought I'd see the day but a neat turn of events

I saw both when they were with their respective partners over the years at The Fest For Beatles Fans in Rosemont, IL and they were fun to listen to.

Most recently I saw Peter Asher tour with a band and Albert Lee who is an outstanding guitarist and appeared at CROSSROADS in Bridgeview, IL and CONCERT FOR GEORGE among many other places.

For those with SIRIUS radio, Peter is a big contributor to the Beatles Channel too as you might know.

And the mid 60's image of Peter Asher it's been said more than once was the inspiration for the Mike Myers's character Austin Powers.

They do look alike!

I believe that Chad and Jeremy were on a Dick Van Dyke episode. (could have been Peter and Gordon)

Peter & Gordon's biggest hit came with a Beatles cover. Peter's sister was McCartney's girlfriend at the time. Talk about who you know.

These days Jane Asher is more famous than Peter as she's had an acting career that's lasted since the sixties.

As an aside, Chad & Jeremy are even more unknown in the UK; they only had one chart hit, and even that only got to no. 37. One of a few British acts who were much bigger in the US than the UK.
