Wallpaper Description:

Peter and Gordon were a British pop duo, comprising Peter Asher (b. 1944) and Gordon Waller (1945–2009), who achieved international fame in 1964 with their first single, the million-selling transatlantic No.1 smash "A World Without Love."

The duo had several subsequent hits in the British Invasion.

Peter Asher and his sister Jane were child actors in the 1950s.

They played siblings in a 1955 episode of the television series The Adventures of Robin Hood.

Jane Asher dated The Beatles' Paul McCartney between 1963 and 1968, and Peter and Gordon recorded several songs written by McCartney but credited to Lennon–McCartney.

Those hits included "A World Without Love" (US & UK No.1), "Nobody I Know" (US No.12; UK No.10), "I Don't Want To See You Again" (US No.16, but not a hit in the UK), and "Woman".

With "Woman", McCartney used the pseudonym Bernard Webb to see whether he could have a hit song without his name attached.

The song reached No.14 in the US and No.28 on the British charts in 1966.
