Peter Asher: Paul McCartney's handwritten lyrics are his "rainy day" fund

Peter and Gordon had a big hit back in 1964 with the Paul McCartney-penned "A World Without Love," and it turns out Peter still has Paul's original manuscript for the tune.

Via the Daily Express:

"Paul wrote out the words and the chords of the song for me on a piece of paper," recalls Peter.

"You'd better believe I've locked it away in a safe for the time when the music business goes completely to hell and I can run to Sotheby's like the wind," chortles the delightfully humorous and self-deprecating Peter, 73.

But with an estimated £35million fortune from his work as a Grammy-winning international music producer he is probably never likely to need the money.
