SITE BACK BY POPULAR REQUEST!3088

Tree private msg quote post Address this user



Hello all and welcome back!

As most of you know, upon the passing of Phil Everly the site that we founded, "The Official Everly Brothers' Family Fansite", was purchased by *Erin Everly (and Erin alone - in the event there is any misunderstanding), and the new webmaster decided not to utilize our design or continue these forums on the new site, although they were offered to him.

We received many, many e-mails regarding change of site and loss of this marvelous forum that Ninja Post's Mike Wilt and Turning Point provided within site that current webmaster chose to discontinue.

So upon consulting with the folks that brought you the official site, we decided to bring it back for you to utilize.

Thankfully, NinjaPost was able to restore all of our old photos and discussions and Scott Schultz of Schultz Media redesigned the site as a fan-only / non-official site at his own expense. (Thus we invited Schultz Media to now include a "donation" button on new design.)

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:

As you all know this video was our landing page video to the site since its launch.

Hi Tree,
I have just discovered that the site is back on line. Thank you for that, good to see the familiar logos. I just decided to click onto the bar where the site used to be. What a pleasant surprise.

Thanks for the Everly site and for keeping the flame lit, Tree. We all will help to do the same. I'm sure Phil would be pleased. It's really tough losing Phil and my deepest sympathy goes out to Phil's family and close friends. Thanks, Don for keeping the faith and the music as fresh today as it was back in the early days. Our loss is only corporeal as all human deaths are. The Everly Brothers songs will endure forever as long as we have ears to hear with and hearts to love with. Blessings all around and Peace.

Another thanks for this site and for bringing it back. I became truly aware of the EBs only about 6 months ago and from that time forward spent much of my spare time obsessively discovering
their lesser known work, history, etc. And of course while doing so
came across this site. Also extending thanks to stalwarts such as rosiebarm, mefloody, and others for their posts
and to chu/crestviewmaiden for her videos.
Above all, condolences to the Everly family and close friends at this very sad time. Rest in peace, Phil - a prince among men.

Hi all!

Welcome/ re-launch letter going out to the HUNDREDS of old forum members this week, inviting them back, making them aware of this forum's return as a fan site this time rather than an "official" site.

Thanks for your patience!!

Long time no chat, Mike!

This forum is set up to store all data, so you should be able to search for any and all old posts, as ever. Luckily, Mike Wilt had the foresight to hold onto all the old files so we didn't lose anything!

That's a real good question Luke. Using an analogy, a behind the scenes management break-up/squabble, kicked all us "worker's" out of the "works"; rumour and finger-pointing abounded. The work's manager wanted to put us all back to work, where we would be happy again but some of the Directors decided to take the old family business name and start a new. Leaving us poor dumb loyal workers wondering which job we should take and if we shouldn't just retire full stop.
Does that help

Luke, its just like when you have friends or family that fallout or get divorced, some take sides but the wise ones keep both sides as a friend and don't let on to the other half about their continued friendship. I visit All the sites because I didn't and will not fallout with anyone

For what it is worth ----just thankful that someone is taking the time,expense and effort to keep this site going. give us a place to honor the brothers and to enjoy the music and the sharing of our thoughts. Friends were made here, and it gives us a place to meet new friends. Several other sites out there, and so, why all the squabble . The site is monitored and the reason for that is to try to keep it in a respectful site. It is monitored by a bunch that loves and honor the Everly /brothers also. So why worry , be happy , play the music, write those memories of Phil and Don, keep it clean, and enjoy. If you like it here, good, if not , well that is your choice. sometimes, we cant please everyone, BUT WE TRY so thanks to the supporters and thank the guys who keep it open for us fans.

Hi there. This site is a fan site only. No "official" in the title.

There is unfortunately NO "official" site run by the Everly Brothers at this point.

We are not "official". There is no official site. We are now completely unrelated. We will never be a subscription or for-profit site. We are here for fans to gather, only.

Again, this never has been and never will be a paid site nor sell pirated material like another site in the Netherlands, etc. We have only retained it as all the fans and friends we met loved it here and asked us to do so.

Yes, I concur with everlyones sentiments on this cool site and hope we can all stay together in honoring the legendary Everly Brothers no matter what we call "official" The real deal is that we are loyal fans of Phil and Don and always will be. No need to nitpick. Here we have made new friends too and that is super. I am still planning on airing a two hour EB Special sometime this summer but need your support. I wish to thanks those who voted in the positive in a previous post but need more of you to do the same. I need to know how many of you would like to hear this EB Special before I schedule it so please vote here on the forums. I thank you very much. Foreverly, Rich WHRW-FM 90.5 www.whrwfm.org

It is utterly ridiculous to have to clarify this, indeed.

On with memories and friendships.

FM: Would you like us to post a "sticky" poll up for folks to vote and to make them aware of show? I'm certain no one would answer "no", however.

Let us know of day and time of the 2-hour show and will post as a top/administrator thread.

Luke. Please question what that person writes. Martial did indeed start off being one of the Everly's biggest fan but from what I know, his Everly merchandising business (endorsed at first by Don and Phil) seemed to end most of that. However, nothing is ever as it first appears and the last 8 months have shown that vividly to me.

Anything I know about Martial Bekkers I have learned from Edan, so I have no idea what the case is. So I'm staying out of that one entirely. :X
