Peter Allen
Birth: Feb. 10, 1944, Australia
Death: Jun. 18, 1992, USA

Entertainer, Songwriter. Born in Australia, he was discovered in 1964 by the legendary Judy Garland while she was on tour in Hong Kong. She brought him to America, where his career thrived and he became the first husband of Garland's daughter, Liza Minnelli (it was his only marriage.) They separated and divorced after Garland's death in 1969. He wrote a tribute to Judy, "Quiet Please, There's A Lady On Stage," and penned such popular songs as "I Honestly Love You," "Don't Cry Out Loud," "I Go To Rio," "Everything Old Is New Again," and "Bi-Coastal." He remained a flamboyant stage entertainer, usually singing his own songs, until he contracted AIDS in the early 1990s. (bio by: Mike)
