Jinx?

I was a little creeped out to see that Gordon, of “Peter & Gordon” fame, died last week at Backus Hospital in Norwich.

Peter & Gordon in 2007

I mentioned Gordon Waller in a post just a couple of weeks ago.  Until then, I’m sure I hadn’t even thought about him since the last time I heard “A World Without Love.”  And the next thing you know…

I certainly had no idea he lived in Connecticut, or that he and Peter Asher were set to play one of their sporadic reunion concerts at Mohegan Sun later this year.

I hope Peter is well.  And Chad & Jeremy, too.  (Just in case.)

  1. Eerie indeed. Your exact words were… ” Peter. Without Gordon. “

    Chad and Jeremy are both well. Chad left some nice comments about Gordon on their web site, http://www.chadandjeremy.com, as well as MySpace, http://www.myspace.com\chadandjeremy. Although Gordon had not been well as of late, his passing was still a great surprise.

    There’s a nice tribute to Gordon’s music, both solo, and with Peter, available at, as a 2 part podcast:

  3. Strange I don’t see wall to wall coverage on Fox, MSNBC or CNN?

    Ter…that’s what I mean.

    Tony…thanks for the info. You know your stuff!

    Marsh…they’re probably all too young.

    Saw them at BB King’s in NY at the benefit concert for Mike Smith of The Dave Clark Five. I believe it was the first time they sang on stage together for 40 years

    Do you know who wrote A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE? I’m sure you do. He also wrote BAD TO ME. Scroll down…

    The “pretty Beatle.” Paul. At least that’s what the girls said. I was a Lennon fan because of his lyrics. My Mom had to drive me (or I’d cry) to LaSalle Records when a new LP was released.

    Those were the days, my friend (another Paul McC song).
