John Firminger, whom some of you may remember for producing the Everly Brothers fanzine Stories We Can Tell in the 1980s, has launched a new fanzine, Devoted To Them. The first issue was published in January 2018. For contact details regarding subscription etc., see the leaflet below! We thought we’d bring you the news; we have no connection to the fanzine.
New for May 2017:
Always wanted to know what happened to Phil’s guitar after the fateful show at Knott’s Berry Farm July 1973? Sam McCue explains:
“When Phil threw his guitar down and smashed it at, Knott’s Berry Farm, I picked up the pieces and our drummer, Gino, asked if he could have it. Phil replied ‘No, that one is Sam’s
I gave it to Steinegger, who totally rebuilt it. We had it over at Phil’s house one day and it played so well he decided to keep it.
Oh, well, it was his guitar, so what could I say?” – thanks Sam!!

As Dick Rivers describes it in this preface, “It’s impossible to imagine the world of rock ‘n’ roll, country, and pop music in general without the repertoire of the Everly Brothers”. Like Buddy Holly and the King’s ‘Love Me Tender’, they added nobility and tenderness to a music that wasn’t – only – to rebel.
In France, who else but Alain Fournier could deliver a detailed masterpiece like this? Born in 1943, a former physical education teacher, correspondent of the Everly Brothers International Fan Club (EBI) since 1974 and president of Country Music Memorial, Alain offers us a look into his personal archives, his expertise, his memories….and his passion.

“Phil told me that he had no complaints with his life when we were working together. He said, ‘I will sing ‘Wake Up Little Susie’ until the cows come home and be thankful to my soul for it. But for all the pats on the back and the awards I’ve gotten, I really wish people heard what I was doing now.’ Phil was my friend and that’s what I’m trying to do here.” – Brian C. Stewart of Lost Coyote.
Listen to the album – do it for Phil, or simply because it is an excellent CD!! (Also see the News Page – January 2016.)

This is what happens when two Everly fans meet: they become fast friends and…..they create a complete (as far as that is possible!) index/encyclopaedia on every facet of Don & Phil Everly, covering their lives, careers, influences and connections – of course, from us as huge fans, with all due respect to them and their families. In Everlypedia you will find details on their recording sessions, record companies, musicians they worked and recorded with, all the songs and albums, the 1970 TV Show listings, all the tours they ever went on – and the list goes on and on and on. Plus a great many photos for when you get tired of reading!
Everlypedia will be updated from time to time so make sure to check back for a new version.
NB: due to its size and depending on the speed of your internet connection, Everlypedia may take a little while to load.
