Gordon Waller Tribute, Las Vegas

John Walker Tributes Gordon Waller

On May 29th, 2010, John appeared in Las Vegas as part of a Tribute To Gordon Waller (Peter and Gordon)/ Sixties Celebration  which featured friends and colleagues of Gordon. The seven hour show was a brilliant celebration of music from the era, and featured several songs which were among Gordon’s favorites. John performed “Unchain My Heart”, “No Other Baby But You”, inviting Spencer Davis onstage to sing along with him, followed by Gordon’s favorite: “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore”.  Later, John joined D.J.Fontana (Elvis’s drummer) in “One Night With You”.  Finally, during Peter Asher’s elegant, touching media and song tribute to his partner, John joined Peter to sing “Let It Be Me” – singing Gordon’s part.  Among the other featured artistes were Spencer Davis (“Gimme Some Lovin'”), Denny Laine (formerly with Wings), Terry Sylvester from The Hollies (“He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”), and Chad and Jeremy.  Jeff Ross, MD, and his powerful backing band – from the Los Angeles area – toured with Peter and Gordon as “The Peter and Gordon Band”. … Peter Asher and Keith Putney, along with Jeff, organized a spectacular salute to Gordon and the fans of 60s music….”
