Musician. Best known as half of the 1960's music duo Peter and Gordon. Born in Braemar, Scotland, he moved during his childhood with his family to London and would later meet Peter Asher in 1961 while attending Westminster School. The two discovered a common interest in music (they both played the guitar) and became friends. They began performing at local pubs and would soon become part of "The British Invasion". Their first hit "A World Without Love", which was a composition written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney reached number one in May 1964. In January 1965, their hit "I Go To Pieces", which was written by Del Shannon became a top ten record. Among some of their other songs include "Nobody I Know" (1964), "I Don't Want To See You Again" (1964), "True Love Ways" (1965), "Woman" (1966) and "Lady Godiva" (1966). The duo disbanded in 1968 with Waller pursuing a solo career. In 1971, he appeared in the role of 'Pharaoh' in the Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". (bio by: C.S.)
