***PLEASE LEAVE PHIL CONDOLENCES HERE*** Admin 259 3 monthscraiglhope (6300): Hi Rodenbe53, What a great memory and prized possession with those autographs! Wonderful. Yep, like you, I became 'hooked' in 1957, 1958, 1959 and haven't looked back. 13, 14, 15 years old right in the prime teenage years, Dick Clark's American Bandstand in West Philadelphia....attended a show once...small dance floor, lots of bright lights, TV cameras all over, bleacher seats, pretty girls, but being the chicken liver that I was, I sat in...
About Us / History Of This Site Tree 77 4 monthsChrisW (8115): Welcome Darren. Good to have another guy on this site. 😊
James Taylor & Art Garfunkel - For today Tree 9 8 monthsDeeDee (1914): Fabulous! The Twin Towers...just so, so poignant! I was in New York the year after it happened and couldn't bear to go down to the site of so much destruction and heartache! How some people can stoop this low just baffles me!! We all have such a short time on this Earth and it could be filled with beauty and brotherly love instead of hate and dogma! People, be kind!!!
SITE BACK BY POPULAR REQUEST! Tree 42 8 monthsDeeDee (1914): Gosh! As a newby to this site it is so interesting to find out about all the difficulties that the Everlys and their fans have had with unscrupulous people trying to hijack things but I suppose it was ever thus? So nice to know this site is run by and for the true fans! I only joined at the beginning of April 2018 but have enjoyed the whole experience so far and it's so great to "meet" other fans of Phil and Don's and know that we all...
Don Everly comments on brother's passing Tree 30 8 monthsDeeDee (1914): Don Everly's poignant words on his brother's passing do show that they had a special connection that sibling rivalries and petty bickering over the years did not touch! Phil always seemed the gentler brother and the peacemaker over the many years they performed together to me from comments in the many videos and interviews over the years, but they were, at the end of the day a Duo, and so sadly the most sublime harmonies were silenced forever...
Tributes from other artists to Phil Tree 12 1 yearMeFloody (6900): Just revisiting this post Tree. Still lots of tears but an acceptance that I'm not alone in that, when reading these wonderful tributes :heart::heart::heart:
Rolling Stone: Phil's son Jason on his dad Tree 7 5 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...
Christmas Eve Can Kill You bert 3 9 hoursMarion (375): Thank you Bert for posting. A tough time of the year for many people Craig, sorry. Thank you as well to sharona who has posted some very nicely done Everly videos on YouTube this year.
A Prairie Home Companion-Music III ChrisW 7 22 hoursAnnmary (1827): Beautiful Thank you Chris.
Happy Birthday Margaret Everly DeeDee 20 1 dayJeanroberts (2631): I think you would have to ask our administrator about this! xxx
2 songs Don appeared on ChrisW 9 2 daysKDF (189): Hi Cathy, I believe it’s the Four Tops that call out Don and invite him up on stage “Four Tops Live at the Rooster Tail” I think the album is called taped the Rooster Tail Night Club in Detroit If you look to the left on the back of the album cover you see Phil getting a bear hug from one of the Tops. I can’t remember if it’s the Supremes up there as well, but there is a girl vocal group on stage You can make Dons voice out...
MERRY CHRISTMAS oldrosie 21 4 daysMeFloody (6900): Can I join in and wish you all a happy but above all, a peaceful and loving Christmas. With love Mike
The Power of Three (BBC) Judyc13 14 4 daysMarion (375): Works for me as well, a pleasant surprise! Thank you Judy.
Bill Kenwright Joyb 4 6 daysJoyb (8277): Yes Cathy I have listened to his other shows I think he’s really good and a big fan of Phil and Don when Phil passed away he paid a special tribute and played Air that I breath. Even though it wasn’t in the 50s or early 60s. In his last series I kept emailing him you could say I was nearly a stalker but I managed to get 3 requests played. He has 2 hr show I think on Christmas Eve but I’ll check Date and post itxx❤️❤️
Nashville Gibson copy JillBlake 2 6 daysDeeDee (1914): Thanks Jill saw the photos on the forum!
Complete Everly Brothers vinyl collection to sell. JillBlake 9 7 daysDeeDee (1914): Hello again Jill, Thank you for the photo of your late husband's Nashville guitar I confess I have never heard of this make as only Gibson had the rights to produce the actual Everly guitar so it's probably an unofficial near copy? [From the 80's reunion Rbt Steinegger was licensed by the Everlys to produce the Ike Everly model they played thereafter so this Nashville is a mystery to me} It's hard to see properly in the photo but it looks like...
Cliff Richard a friend of the Everly Brothers DeeDee 4 7 daysDeeDee (1914): I agree with everything said above The BBC and the Police were entirely out of order Talk about a witch hunt! Cliff has been vindicated but it must have taken a high toll on his health and peace of mind! I too think he and Phil had a lot of fun recording and singing together! Cliff has great taste in singing partners and Phil was the best!
Don sings A Hard Days Night live Marty 3 7 daysDeeDee (1914): Thanks Marty, a new one on me too! Love the guitar work! Really nice, Just Don and his guitar! A live performance, excellent!
Don't say goodnight DeeDee 29 8 daysDeeDee (1914): If anyone ever finds a video of Phil and Don performing this fabulous, fabulous song, PLEASE put a link up here or as a new topic
The EB's on the Johnny Cash Show ChrisW 9 8 daysSharon (762):
A Christmas tune appropriate for the time of year :) DarrenGreenwood 28 11 dayscuddles (1185): hi all how is the EB park going thanks peter
Don and Phil on the lookout for you BobbyBri 19 12 daysBobbyBri (3396): Oh! That's a new one to me. And again those dimples... Great picture, thank you Chris. :heart:
DON SUES PHIL'S FAMILY rosiebarm2 35 13 daysDeeDee (1914): As far as I can see they both put their own part into every song they sang and the final product was a merging and melding of two great talents to produce such wonderful sounds! That should be the beginning and end of it! They were far stronger together and that is how we enjoy their God given voices, as a duo from Heaven with voices to match! All the bickering and bad mouthing in the world won't change the fact of their perfect, wonderful...
Thank you Everly Brothers Fan Forum Liz58 7 13 daysDeeDee (1914): I just love that demo of When will I be loved by Phil! The dragged out notes he puts on the lines is really wonderful! It gives the whole song a different feel! Really poignant! Love it!!! Congrats on your second anniversary on the forum Liz I only joined in April this year though I have loved the Everlys since I was little Just so wonderful to find this forum and meet all these other like minded fans of the best duo the world has ever seen...
German Radio October 1972 ChrisW 5 16 daysAnnmary (1827): What a great video. thank you Chris.
Trains, Boats and Planes - Bacharach, Dionne and Everly Brothers ChrisW 13 18 daysDeeDee (1914): Obvious now one looks properly at the photo that the boys have been added into the background as they are out of scale Early stab at photoshop??
The Royal Albert Hall 9th October 1987 Kathyc 15 18 daysDeeDee (1914): Yes the pickguards are very thin sheets of white and black plastic on the Steinegger guitars I am lucky enough to have a Steinegger Everly and a Gibson too and the double pickguard on the Gibson model is very thick by comparison and must compromise the sound quality of the guitar as of course it dulls the reverberation of the top so much! Phil and Robert Steinegger came up with an improved design for the Ike Everly guitars Both types are of...
A happy memory to share Kathyc 27 18 daysDeeDee (1914): That was Multi coloured SWAP shop Kathy!! I remember watching that!! It would be great if someone could find the link to Don's uncomfortable TV experience! It sounds a real hoot!!! Lovely story about the $1.00 bill Phil's Mom had obviously remembered her little boy's disappointment over that Roy Rogers fan club and tried to make amends all these years later! Mrs Everly had known hard times but like most parents had kept the tight financial...
everly bro oldrosie 8 24 daysRedhead1966 (2952): Judyc13 - Yes, but why? What was he doing? And why couldn't they have postponed shooting in order to interview him instead of using his son as a stand in? That always seemed really odd. If I were making a documentary about the Everly Brothers I would do whatever it took to make sure I interviewed both brothers, otherwise the whole project suffers.
Margaret Everly's Birthday MarieLuluSibenik 32 26 daysDeeDee (1914): Cornbread I don't think I have tasted but beans have been a favourite from childhood so that sounds like a great meal Terry!
The Everly Brothers Experience comes to Ireland Redhead1966 2 26 daysDeeDee (1914): Thanks Redhead for this post! I had read the article before but good to see it again!
Sir Peter Blake Mural masterpiece MeFloody 34 26 daysJudyc13 (534): @7bexbex7 Really? Wonder what prompted that. I did wonder about the chicken painting visible behind Margaret. What fun!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARGARET EVERLY bert 6 27 daysMarieLuluSibenik (114): Thanks Bert for the great photographs and positive post. I am glad you and Margaret are friends.:heart:
Royal Albert Hall reunion Sharon 22 28 daysChrisW (8115): @7bexbex7 So pleased you are joining in with comments Terry. We would never have known that. These photos that Sharon managed to purchase are some fantastic ones most of which we have not seen.
Duane Eddy on Radio 2 talks about Phil & Don ChrisW 15 29 daysDeeDee (1914): Still can't listen to the interview Does anyone know how to listen without having to join something first? It sounds like it is so poignant and interesting!
Homecoming Concerts ChrisW 88 29 daysDeeDee (1914): I have never heard of Mr Prine or his songs so enjoyed this post very much!
Harmonies From Heaven bert 6 29 daysDeeDee (1914): Super programme and all praise for Phil and Don is so richly deserved! Harmonies from [and in] Heaven I am sure Phil is still singing somewhere! If only he was still with us to sing so gloriously here again!
Phil and Cliff, I'll mend your broken heart Liz58 15 29 daysEver1yfan (129): Lovely, thanks,
We keep on Rockin —-!!! Cheers Terry Slater 7bexbex7 11 29 daysLizzieB (14283): Great Photos . Thank you Terry.
Wildfire in California MeFloody 68 30 daysMarion (375): Praying for all affected. What has happened is horrific. I agree with you Rosie, I think to myself at times we are living at the start of the ending of this world.
A-Ha on The One Show Kathyc 9 1 monthBobbyBri (3396): Morten Harket's close personal bond with the Everly Brothers, especially with Phil, is reflected in the words he found after Phil's passing away: "From the musical legacy of the Everly Brothers we knew growing up in Norway, to the personal encounters with Phil and Don around the world many years later…from the beautiful guitars they generously gave us for Xmas one year in the late 80s, to ‘crying in the rain’ – the song we recorded...
So Sad, in 2 languages Liz58 4 1 monthKathyc (2376): My single of Buona Fortuna Amore Mio is record no. WB 1012 it has Bird Dog on the flip, but that is in English. Also I received at the same time in Italian La Luna E Un Pallido Sole with a flip of Non Mi Resti Che Tu - WB 1009. My sleeve says I received it from Italy on 25th May 1965. I have the German ones on singles and an EP The Everly Brothers in Deutschland that was recorded 1963 and the singles in 1965 at least that was when I got them. I...
The Rum Runner ChrisW 6 1 monthKathyc (2376): Yes it was the Redcaps Jane.
Parting songs Judyc13 31 1 monthMarion (375): Perhaps Don’s favorite song or the idea for writing the song that Phil wrote was discussed in length or possibly recorded in studio B and he felt closer to Phil there after learning of Phil’s passing while listening to the song. I am sure the memories were comforting for Don and he felt a closeness to Phil whatever the reason he went to the studio. I personally think the song may have been “When Will I Be Loved”. It is a very touching...
Love of the common people bert 29 1 monthRedhead1966 (2952): Liz58 - Agree 100%! People have to be told or reminded that the Everlys had so much more to offer the world than a handful of songs recorded in the 1950's.
Question for KathyC Marty 31 1 monthMarty (600): @7bexbex7 Thanks for the insight, Terry. I never considered it before but of course, a chance for them to catch their breath as well as connect with the audience.
Sing Me Back Home , Live Liz58 16 1 monthDeeDee (1914): Just came back to listen to this haunting gorgeous song again!! Sigh...just perfect!!!
Last tour - UK 2005 ChrisW 28 1 monthDeeDee (1914): Fabulous, fabulous stuff!! Thank you everyone for all the interesting info in this post! As far as Phil's health goes he was still singing in 2005 so I am sure he was fine at the reunion show! It may be that he had that excess sweating thing but he coped with that and the sounds coming out of his [smoker's] lungs were sublime so we must be thankful that he sounded so wonderful and continued with his career until well after many singers do! the...
Everly Brothers last performance date? Liz58 36 1 monthMeFloody (6900): I have only just caught up on this post. Kathy you are a Star :) and how kind of Phil to think of you :heart:
