Singer/producer/manager Peter Asher has worked with everyone from the Beatles and James Taylor to Courtney Love and Pamela Anderson. He'll sing (remember Peter & Gordon's "World Without Love"?) and discuss his career Jan. 16-17 at the Dakota in Minneapolis. He probably won't talk about the book he's reading -- Lisa Randall's "Knocking on Heaven's Door."


"It's about particle physics. Lisa Randall is this genius physicist who can explain it in ways that are intelligible to us mortals. It's fascinating, life-changing stuff."
