Gordon Waller, half of the British rock duo, Peter and Gordon, died July 16 in Connecticut, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.

Gordon and Peter Asher were part of The British Invasion, the 1960s influx into the U.S. of bands like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Peter and Gordon even recorded several tunes written by Paul McCartney, whose sister was dating Asher at the time. The duo had recently reunited and had several tour dates scheduled for later this year.

An announcement on the Peter and Gordon MySpace page says: "We are deeply saddened to report that...Gordon Waller went into cardiac arrest and was taken to the emergency room. Despite intensive efforts on his behalf by hospital personnel, Gordon passed away...Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers."

This seems to be a leading cause of death among musicians these days.

Damn. I've gone to pieces about this.

The original song (Del Shannon's) is pretty good, but I always loved P&G's version.

didn't Peter Asher become a record company president?
