"Rick" Sarstedt (born Richard Graham Sarstedt, 29 March 1940, in New Delhi, India) who also topped the UK Singles Chart himself in 1961, with "Well I Ask You", under the stage name Eden Kane.

Peter Sarstedt (born Peter Eardley Sarstedt, 10 December 1941 Delhi, British India), (died 8 January 2017 Sussex, England) best known for writing and performing the single "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", which topped the UK Singles Chart in 1969.


Sarstedt has appeared on many, many live music shows including Top of The Pops.

He initially recorded under the names Wes Sands (recorded by his manager, Joe Meek), and Clive Sands. He joined The Deejays in Sweden in 1966 and 1967. They had two big hits on "Tio i Topp" in Sweden: "Dum Dum (Marble Breaks And Iron Bends)" and "Baby Talk". He finally had a hit in 1976, with a cover version of the Hoagy Carmichael penned song, "My Resistance Is Low", using his middle name and billed as Robin Sarstedt. It reached Number 3 in the UK Singles Chart.

Without tangible other chart success, he remains a British one-hit wonder. However, in the Benelux countries he hit the charts later in 1976 with his version of "Let's Fall in Love", a song written by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler and published in 1933, thus prolonging his short chart career there.
