***PLEASE LEAVE PHIL CONDOLENCES HERE*** Admin 259 9 dayscraiglhope (5973): 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 1 monthChrisW (6792): Welcome Darren. Good to have another guy on this site. 😊
James Taylor & Art Garfunkel - For today Tree 9 5 monthsDeeDee (1404): 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 5 monthsDeeDee (1404): 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 5 monthsDeeDee (1404): 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 9 monthsMeFloody (6321): 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 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...
THE HAMMOND BROTHERS annefrances 1 6 hoursannefrances (1878): These are some local friends whom really do a great performance on Everly songs. Dale and Gale are fraternal twins and perform beautiful harmonies with all the time humor. I really love them as they sing several Everly songs in their set and have recorded several Everly songs on their CD. Gale Hammond played his Everly guitar on this set~
Paula Ashley colorado3 11 8 hoursJudyc13 (186): @Redhead1966@DeeDee As it turns out, they are right up my alley too. What can I say? Now I think they were cute as heck, and I know how much I missed. If only I had known then what I know now - I’d have been at as many concerts as possible - instead of none!
Scene & Heard (UK) 1971 ChrisW 9 11 hoursDeeDee (1404): Such an interesting interview! Don is very open about his problems in the mid '60's with "Speed" which he admits took about three years to clear up and Phil certainly sounded like he had a vocal problem in his part of the interview! As they were over to tour in '71 that must have been difficult to cope with! Thank goodness it didn't cause irreparable damage to his voice! Was this the time that their father came onstage and played at...
Dream, Dream, Dream gets a new airing! DeeDee 1 11 hoursDeeDee (1404): I was so thrilled today to hear "All I have to do is Dream" about half a dozen times on our TV set...and it's the original Everly version!! It's being used in an ad for delivery of food "Whenever I want you, all I have to do is dream" Rather crassly being used to point out that you can have any type of food delivered anytime "Night or day"! But....I don't care, it means Don and Phil are gracing prime time TV with...
Denman arena, Everly connection Liz58 6 11 hoursLiz58 (4179): clickable text Thanks to my dear husband, here's the link to a bit more about the arena, from the local paper. I can say with certainty that I wasn't expecting to see the EBs names on a plaque on the way round the harbour at Vancouver! Beautiful autumn morning there, and now that we're in Auckland, a nice Spring morning here! If it was as much of a trial for Don and Phil to get there in the late 50s as it was for us to get over in...
It’s My Time Jane43 14 13 hoursLizzieB (14247): Thanks Jane . Been a while since I listened to this one. It's a great song- I love it. :heart:
Softly and Tenderly DarrenGreenwood 7 13 hoursLizzieB (14247): Thank you Darren. It absolutely beautiful . These voices are majestic.. Like you Rosie I wish they had done some more Gospel songs.
I'm Afraid 2 versions ChrisW 21 1 dayRoxy (1773): I looked up and listened on you tube to “The Girl Who Sang The Blues”. By golly it took me back. I don’t remember the song, it just seemed such a familiar soundtrack to the music of my youth. I see it was issued in 1957 and I don’t know why it wasn’t a big hit, I really liked it. Some of the beat reminded me just a tiny bit of The Drifters song “When My Little Girl is Smiling”
Rock 'n' Roll Vol 1 & 2 Everly Brothers ChrisW 10 1 dayChrisW (6792): I was excited when I found both albums too. They are very good. I haven't listed the other album song for song I did one album and then to be honest I forgot about the other one. Maybe if I find time someday I will 💕
Albert, with Don's guitar Liz58 5 2 daysLiz58 (4179): Thanks for the video Ricardo, and for the notice of Albert' s UK tour DeeDee I'd like to go, but it's not going to be possible, as I'm in Canada at present on holiday. However, I'm going to be seeing him next May, in Kinross..I booked for that in June this year! We so much enjoyed his show in May this year too, what a marvellous man he is.
Love of the common people bert 27 2 daysChrisW (6792): I am not convinced about Dave Edmunds either Roxy, on EB84 there was too much 'production' on several songs.
WSM PLAYING THE EVERLY BROTHERS annefrances 12 3 daysMeFloody (6321): Hey! It works! ,😍
Old Grey Whistle Test Sept 1972 DeeDee 38 4 daysDeeDee (1404): Sigh...………..yes time...……….and gravity can be so cruel to us all!!
When Snowflakes Fall In The Summer Liz58 10 5 dayscraiglhope (5973): HA, good point, Chris. "They" think they know what we like. The Beatles were turned down by a few record companies at first....boy, did those "executives" rue that day. I didn't like when WB had Don & Phil do songs that were old tunes from the distance past that no 1960's teen would listen to... WB had conflicting ideas as to what the EB should "be" and to what audience they should be "molded to."...
Trains and boats and planes DeeDee 12 5 dayscraiglhope (5973): Wow, you two along with Bert should be teaching Music 101 in a college somewhere! Funny and incredible what music can do to one....eight notes in an octave and yet it can be fabulous in the hands and mind of a composer / artist.
Weird interview!! DeeDee 13 5 daysDeeDee (1404): Sorry, can't warm to Ken Livingstone animal lover or not!! He seems to have a terrible reputation for being extremely left wing politically but it just seemed to kill the atmosphere in the studio when he appeared on the scene! I think he is very disliked generally so it was not fair to foist him on the lovely Everlys and as he is such an extreme left wing person politically it might have looked like the Everlys were somehow endorsing him by...
Don't say goodnight DeeDee 25 5 daysDeeDee (1404): I just can't stop listening to this FABULOUS, GORGEOUS, WONDERFUL track!! Sigh.....who would say goodnight to Don or Phil!! Never!!!!!
My Babe bert 9 5 daysDeeDee (1404): A really different sound from Don and Phil! good song!
Happy Belated Birthday Jane! BobbyBri 16 7 daysJane43 (9693): Thank you for the birthday wishes everybody. Yes I had a great day and I can’t believe I have now achieved three quarters of a century. Thank you for the lovely songs BobbyBri and Liz. Liz I hope you are enjoying your wonderful holiday that you missed out on last year.
Watchin' It Go BobbyBri 21 7 daysAnnmary (1734): I can hear Don quite clearly, no trouble. great to hear it anyway, and a very interesting discussion. Thank you all.
Fan returning to Shenandoah 1986 to see Phil & Don ChrisW 33 7 daysChrisW (6792): We have loads of cassette tapes but no Everly Brothers. We have several machines to play them on so we will keep them whilst the players work. You have the best of both worlds now Sharon you will have a fantastic time with other fans too. 😊
Shake, Rattle and Roll live in Holland bert 4 7 daysJoyb (7947): Exactly Craig. Wowzer!! A wonderful memory for you Bert. Hope your feeling well xx❤️❤️

Happy Birthday Barbara Rosiebarm Mashburn MeFloody 30 10 dayscuddles (975): happy birthday ROSIE
Home coming press conference Joyb 29 12 daysDeeDee (1404): A fun post I bet they got so fed up though over the years doing so many interviews though they never showed that and it was lovely to hear them immediately say when someone asked "Do the words mean as much now as back then" they both answered immediately "More"
Happy Birthday Jason Liz58 16 12 daysDeeDee (1404): Happy Birthday to Jason Everly! He has inherited his dad's good looks! I am sure Phil was very proud of him! My dear Daddy used to telephone me on my birthday and sing Happy Birthday to you in full down the phone! If only those precious people could be here with us right now! Always remembered with love!
Lay Lady Lay bert 4 12 daysDeeDee (1404): Nice link Bert! I always liked the Everly version of that Dylan song and the photos accompanying the song on You Tube are very interesting too as many of them show the boys in front of the big posters produced for the issue of the reunion Concert DVD by HBO and I was thrilled to see that as I have one of this original poster and it's in pretty mint condition so it was really nice to see Phil and Don standing in front of the same poster! I have...
Homecoming Concerts ChrisW 81 16 daysChrisW (6792): Some members were asking about the Homecoming concerts earlier today this thread has quite a lot of information and lots of photos. I do see I promised to post some more things onto this thread. Sorry I have been very busy this year and far too many family health problems to last a lifetime. But I will post some more over the weekend.

Brother Jukebox CD Jane43 6 18 daysJudyc13 (186): I think it's time I returned to my homeland...
birthday greeting oldrosie 3 18 daysJeanroberts (2328): I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets lost, forgets her passwords and wipes a page full of my own typing! xxxxx
Fleetwood Mac Connection Judyc13 22 18 daysRoxy (1773): I would imagine he meant just John and Christine Mcvie lived there Judy as they were a married couple at that time. Hopefully he will answer your question himself. 😀
My Elusive Dreams Liz58 10 18 daysKathyc (1773): Hi you guys having listened, just got destracted and have ordered on amazon chained to a memory, I ordered it (have been meaning too for years because it was my very last link, all other tracks I have on singles including all those on the price of fame, which I might buy okay why not that's my only other no own?? A little surprised that you din't see the dreaded MB at 2.39, so how did he appear and not steal the EBI logo - one to us me thinks...
What kind of girl are you bert 7 18 daysDeeDee (1404): A really nice track Thanks for the link Bert!
Everly Brothers last performance date? Liz58 35 18 daysDeeDee (1404):'s so lovely to hear these little snippets from you lucky people who knew Phil and Don personally! It's just so sad that Phil was addicted to cigarettes for so many years and sadly paid the ultimate price with his health! He was so kind to bring you aspirin Kathy! If only he had stopped smoking sooner his lungs may have recovered and he might have still been here with us and still enjoying his family and playing his guitar! Oh well, it...
Happy Birthday Edan! Liz58 20 20 daysChrisW (6792): I totally agree Mike it is best kept to yourself. I know the one you speak of😊
Don demo Liz58 10 20 daysJeanroberts (2328): Ha! Ha! Ha! The point is Redhead, It’s me who minds very much! I know we all get confused at times, but this happened TWICE! Too much of a blonde moment not to worry about it! You’re very kind! I thank you! xxxxx
Walk Right Back (Show) KDF 49 21 daysJoyb (7947): There will never be the excitement or anticipation seeing a tribute as there was seeing Don and Phil. The hopefulness of getting good tickets and then going to the show was unforgettable and lasted for months then after the shows was like a dream reliving the night xx❤️❤️
Phil and don chat about Chet DeeDee 1 21 daysDeeDee (1404): This is such a nice chat featuring Phil and Don speaking about Chet and with Chet Atkins It was recorded before the show when the Everlys sing Why Worry the Mark Knopfler song So nice to watch these natural sounding chats!
That's Just Too Much - vinyl on a Sony turntable ChrisW 10 21 daysDeeDee (1404): Hypnotic, looking at the turntable! Just like the song! So relaxing! Thanks for the post1
