Live at the BBC

Artists on this weeks show who I have actually seen in an arena are:

The Hollies
Herman's Hermits
The Supremes
Long John Baldry - in a night club
The Temptations

The Hollies were absolutely fabulous, they were my favourite group at that time. It was Allan Clarke at that time too not the guy who replaced him.
The Everly Brothers performed with the Supremes at the Roostertail Night Club, along with Marvin Gaye and The Four Tops.

Tony Blackburn is doing a special show with regard to Radio 1 and as soon as I can post it I will.
Perhaps not directly, but indirectly the Everly Brothers and the Beatles interfaced musically.

The Beatles admired the vocal harmony of the Everly Brothers and tried to emulate them in some of their songs. The next video explores that:

The Everlys & The Beatles ...continue (see beginning information #201)

The Everly Brothers were an... influence. Lennon and McCartney consciously copied Don and Phil Everly's distinctive two-part harmonies. Their vocals on two 1962 recordings, "Love Me Do" and "Please Please Me" were inspired by the Everlys' powerful vocal innovation on "Cathy's Clown" (1960), the first recording to ever reach number one simultaneously in the USA and in England. "Two of Us", the opening track on Let It Be is overtly composed in the Everly style, and McCartney acknowledges this in the recording with a spoken "Take it Phil." (Quote from Stevie Riks aka merseyboys)
