Harmonies From Heaven DVD Ready To Pre Order LizzieB 33 4 monthsLiz58 (2307): I do like this DVD 📀, having had to wipe the recording of it from my TV box. The second disc , shall we say, has it's moments - entertaining, seeing Terry Slater in person backing Don and Phil, but other moments are a bit uncomfortable. When all's said and done though, I'm glad that I bought it.
Don Everly comments on brother's passing Tree 27 2 yearskbeane33 (12): That was a touching message you wrote about your brother. I have great respect for you don. you will be in the light of love and peace with your brother relaxing and enjoying being around every one but until that time keep rocking don . may love peace be with you and your family always . god bless you don. kevin
SITE BACK BY POPULAR REQUEST! Tree 41 3 yearsTree (1491): Phil's welcome video to our site, legitimizing THIS site as the only such "official". Have all original emails to us with video, and of course their participation in OUR family production/ show just before Phil's passing: http://vimeo.com/27842484 As you all know this video was our landing page video to the site since its launch.
Phil Everly Memorial Fund - COPD Foundation Tree 9 3 yearsjust4friendship (498): I would just like to say I am trained in both medical and stop smoking fields. I cannot offer a cure, but I can offer hope. If you would like to talk send me a private message. I was a 4 pack a day smoker. Have been free and no problems since 1989.
Rolling Stone: Phil's son Jason on his dad Tree 7 4 yearsAstrid (0): Thanks to Jason Everly and Patti Everly for shearing moments of dear Phil`s time. <3 I have liked and loved his Music since I heard it for the first time when was a little girl. I also have the CD of their reunion concert at Royal Albert Hall, and I have watced it at least ten times and will certainly watch it more. I don`t think there is a nicer, more good looking man in the Whole wide world than Phil, and certanly not as great singer as him...
Tributes from other artists to Phil Tree 11 4 yearsflkevin (1227): lalopz, thank you for the link. I am hoping that Don seeing all of the tributes from his fellow artists, would be doing songs with various artists in the future.
Love Hurts - new dumentary on Roy Orbison Jane43 12 13 minutesJeanroberts (24): 'Love Hurts' Roy Orbison Documentary! Hard to fathom such cruel fete could visit one person! We were not told the cause of Roy's second wife's death at 61! Everyone watching must have had their hearts go out to Wesley in a big way! It was not in the documentary that Roy told us he was a Christian and after the tragic fire and explosion in which his two youngest boys were killed. Roy was helped by his church minister to come to terms with...
Don Files Lawsuit Against Phil's Family SherryH 62 26 minutesRoxy (309): Jean and Helena, Don probably said goodbye in his own way...Privately? something Phil would have known and understood. They appeared to have been quite close from early childhood onwards and shared most things. I expect as young men, once they had left their parents protection they would have relied heavily upon each other, especially in the early days of their fame/hit records when they we're finding their way in the world. The photos taken...
Christmas Song Helena 1 4 hoursHelena (225): I wonder why Phil and Don never recorded a Christmas song. My favourite is Greg Lake singing I believe in Father Christmas. I can imagine the brothers singing that song. Phil would have had no difficulty reaching the high notes. Its a very dramatic Christmas number. Does anyone else have a favourite Christmas song they can imagine Phil and Don singing.
Every Which Way But Loose Jane43 5 4 hoursHelena (225): Thanks Jane. I have seen the film before but didn't realise Phil was in it. Must have been only half watching. Won't be at home on the 23rd but will record it.
Tribute Act - Temple Brothers ChrisW 6 11 hoursJane43 (7794): The Albert Hall is wonderful. I have only been once, to The Reunion concert in 1983 and it was such a special feeling going inside and walking up the stairs to our seats. If anybody fancies meeting up and going together let me know as it would be wonderful to go again. I have misunderstood you Chris, I thought you were talking about Walk Right Back being at The Albert Hall but I see it is on at Leicester Square. Liz, I see Dundee has...
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE... annefrances 13 1 dayJane43 (7794): @annefrances You're welcome. Apparently he was quite a reclusive singer-songwriter; his best known song is Burning Love for Elvis but I prefer this one.
Good Hearted Woman for Helena Roxy 6 2 daysAnnmary (993): I love the song, but you are right Roxy they looked as if all the joy of performing had gone. So thankful for the Reunion.

Lovey Kravezit Liz58 2 3 daysAnnmary (993): It is certainly a bit different, but great just the same.
Ich bin dein Phil solo Liz58 12 4 daysRicardoAPriori (1836): From Everlypedia [please see above links]: “ It Pleases Me to Please You”: “Phil’s then wife, Patricia (nee Mickey), joined him on backup – she was a former Golddigger on the Dean Martin Show, which is where they met.” “ Lady Anne”: “Phil’s then wife Patricia Mickey sings backup on this track.” There's a saying in Spanish which loosely translated is: "[Sometimes] The best hunter misses the hare. / The...
Popularity of American music in the UK Albert 30 5 dayscraiglhope (3858): Exactly, Ricardo, "Satisfaction" = great and how they perform Buddy's "Not Fade Away." I, also, watched that Ed Sullivan Elvis "Hound Dog" performance and then six or seven years later that Feb. 1964 Beatles performance. Check out...https"en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Songs......Paul says that he and John were about 21 and this guy, Dick James, in a back alley somewhere had a music publishing gig going...
Love Hurts Annmary 10 10 daysJane43 (7794): I’m bumping this thread up because there are some great versions of Love Hurts on here and in Ricardo’s link to an archived thread. Roy Orbison’s version with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is being played a lot on BBC radio 2, presumably because the album has recently been released. The orchestral backing worked for Elvis’s songs but hubby and I feel it just doesn’t work for Roy. We think it is because Roy’s voice was so...

So Sad- new listing! LizzieB 8 19 daysrosiebarm2 (639): so young- timesure passes fast and yes, Phil was noted for looking at the girls while don was busy with the guitar :angel:
DOWN MEMORY LANE rosiebarm2 6 19 dayscraiglhope (3858): Wow, o.k., Millie, that's another classification...solo favorites and, you bet, one of each of Don and Phil's songs popped into my mind, but, alas, guaranteed it will be different tomorrow. Dang, "Maybe Tomorrow"...there's another winner!

Phil on David Frost Show 1970 Joyb 5 20 daysAnnmary (993): What a great interview Joy, Phil so natural and funny on his own, a real treat.
Let It Be Me, with extra verse Liz58 15 22 daysChrisW (3534): My brother bought Move It too Jane it was a 45rpm though. At the time it was either 78 or 45 until 78s were phased out. I loved B side of Move It and used to sing it constantly. Elvis's Teddy Bear was a 78. Between us we bought all releases of Everly Brothers Cliff, Buddy Holly and with the Crickets too, Elvis. I remember when Buddy died they released 13 singles at the same time and my brother wasn't happy about that for several reasons. One...
Everly brothers, in Eurovision? Liz58 9 24 daysHelena (225): Thanks Liz. I did like that particular song. It was definitely a song that would have suited Don and Phil remembering how perfect the Everleys were in harmony together.
Everly Question on today's Chase Liz58 2 25 dayssalfitz (2799): To be honest Liz, I am with Anne on that one.. I would not have known any of the other artists. Temptation is a golden oldie from before the Everlys tho.. xx;)

Oh So Many Years Jane43 5 30 daysBobbyBri (2073): Thank you Jane for bringing this up again. :heart: It's such a beautiful, bittersweet song. Made me think about how Don and Phil could look back on so many years of lifetime spent together and that caused this collage. http://forum.everlyfans.org/cached/2ea704add1c1a1ce62d926202718a8b2.jpg
Looking for Michael Parks performance video joshoush 1 1 monthjoshoush (0): Hello all, I'm shooting a documentary about the late Michael Parks and am having a very hard time getting a line for any video of him performing on Episode 7 of the TV show. I'm willing to take YouTube clips, talk to the estate (or owners of the TV show) to license it, I just can't find any leads whatsoever on the subject. Could anyone here help me? Thanks!
Gone Gone Gone, by Robert & Alison Liz58 3 1 monthLiz58 (2307): Thanks Ricardo. I wonder why Robert & Alison's version of Gone didn't use the " Done moved on"?
Love Her ❤ Liz58 19 1 monthHelena (225): Don and Phil sound divine on this one Annmary x x x Thank you.
Everly question on Popmaster again. Liz58 1 1 monthLiz58 (2307): clickable text BBC radio 2, Ken Bruce show, 2nd contestant, from about 1:09:00 to 1:12:15 in . Hadn't heard the cover version extract before, nothing compared to the original....of course 😊

Let's Put Our Hearts together. Annmary 3 1 monthMeFloody (4443): This record had very little air play when released in the 70's. I always thought it should have been titled "Howling at the moon". I know John Prine's wife was in Don's Dead cowboys band, it could be her singing
Following The Sun Jane43 4 1 monthBobbyBri (2073): Oooops - I almost happened to miss this post even though Following The Sun is one of my favourite songs if not absolutely my favourite song of the Everly Brothers. I know that many fans prefer their early songs because of its youthful freshness and innocence. But to me it seems that the later songs have the maturity of having lived a life and their voices sound, if anything, even better than ever. Following The Sun (written by Don) has a...
