Kathy, what fabulous pix of Don! I love them all and they are definitely new to me. How do you get these treasures? Did you take any of them? Are you the cute blonde in the second and fourth photos? Okay, I'll quit the interrogation now.

Sharona thank you for your kind words - not sure I've been called cute before - kinda like it in my old age! Yes the photos are mine I like 6 and 7 best he was (is) so sexy - especially 6. We had just had a run in with the UK police - their drummer (Jim Gordon) and I tried to get in the car behind them, not their car - and we were attached, I was punched in the stomach and Jimmy was hit over the head a punched. It was totally new to us - the police had never reacted like this to us. Brian Epstein was involved hence problem me thinks!!! Don jumped out of their car and shouted at the police and rescued me, but Don wouldn't let it drop and quite right too bless him - he is a lovely caring man.

First photo I had with Don

We were okay a little bit or rather to be honest quite a bit shaken. You are American so you will not understand fully, but you clearly do. In England back then the police to me were Dickson of Dock Green wonderful police officers who looked out for everyone - so the attitude and brutality we experienced that day was totally alien to me. I can still hear Don yelling she's a woman you just punched her in the stomach. I have never had any regard for the police since.

Sorry to hear that @Kathyc - one shouldn’t let a disturbed minority affect one’s respect for the force as a whole.
From the time our village policeman taught our primary school safe cycling and road safety, to my first visit in Belfast, when I was greeted by a kindly Ulster policeman helping me cross the road, (“You’re alright, daughter”), I have always thought that most UK policemen have the very best motives. I continue to think that, having been in the US for thirty years. However, it’s also true that some are drawn to the profession for the wrong reasons. They don’t usually last long in the job.
So sorry for the bad experience, but glad you had a wonderful defender!

Extra special photos Kathy, and a very interesting story. Unbelievable you should be punched like that, wow! But as Judy said you had a wonderful defender!

@Kathyc (Heavy sigh) looking at those venues, they were very close to my home in 1965. I'd like to go back and wake up my teenage self and tell her to pay more attention! Oh, well. Maybe in my next life...

Happy Birthday to you Don! You've already out lived Phil by Seven years, including the two before Phil was born!

I do hope you are having a happy retirement! Do you still play your guitar and write songs? Maybe fishing and relaxing generally is more on the cards! XXXXX

Happy 82nd birthday, Don Everly!
Many good wishes for you, just as expressed in the song by Whitney Houston:

"I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of
And I wish to you joy and happiness."
