Behind the 60s Style Scene with Music Legend Peter Asher
May 17, 2012 - by Jessica Lapidos
After rising to prominence on the London music scene in the 60s as one half of Peter and Gordon, Peter Asher went on to manage Apple Records, produce all of James Taylor's multi-platinum records, and influence pop music from the inside. He also made besties with Twiggy and was roomies with Paul McCartney along the way. I caught up with him at his recording studio in Santa Monica when I was in LA. He told me how the London music scene shopped, why the Apple Boutique closed, and what fashion gem was hiding in Pete Townsend's basement.
You won't read his full story in a book any time soon. He's singing his tales through original music and photographs in intimate performances. He's performing now through this weekend in San Francisco, and June 19-23 in New York City.
Now meet Peter Asher through a fashionable lens.
