Peter Sarstedt

  • Real Name: Peter Sarstedt
  • Birth Date: 1941
  • Birth Place: Delhi, India
  • Along with brothers Richard (a.k.a Eden Kane) and Robin, Peter Sarstedt returned from India with his parents in 1954. Following a musical career closer to folk than most traditional 'pop', Peter didn't consider it necessary to undergo a name change like his older brother. Although lacking Richard's good looks, Peter was blessed with superb songwriting skills. He'd already had some recognition- though not chart success- with 'I Am A Cathedral'- before writing his great 1960s classic 'Where Do You Go To My Lovely'.

    He followed this with 'Frozen Orange Juice' which reached a creditable #10 and had some success with an album before the decade was out. He was never able to repeat these chart successes and for a time in the 1970s he worked with his siblings as one third of 'The Sarstedt Brothers'. Although he lived quietly in Denmark for many years he returned to England during the 1990s and regularly performs on the 1960s nostalgia circuit.
