    yeah...Jan Berry was Jan of Jan and Dean..I just read Mike Love's autobiography a couple years back and he mentions them..they were a huge influence on Brian Wilson..I didn't realize one of the Everly Bros died...the recording I have is not that old...it was done in London live. The early stuff you and I probably both heard on the radio like Cathy's Clown....She's a bird dog, etc..

    Tell Laura I Love Her, it all takes me back to the days when I was flying .o29s and .049 gas model airplanes. I use to go by the 5 and dime store every day on and back from the public swimming pool in the lake. I would gaze lovingly at the 'Firebaby' model plane mounted in it's box with the see through plastic wrap. It was gas powered and mesmerized this little boy. I had an uncle up here from Alabama to work for my father. He promised he would someday buy me that gas powered Firebaby. He was a bad alcoholic and preferred to spend his money on alcohol. He would even walk from tavern or bar in town carrying his cash from his paycheck converted to one dollar bills which he would sporadically throw up in the air attracting his fellow drunks like ducks to some bread. He could have bought that Firebaby, some new fishing gear, which I also loved to do, and some new swim gear, which was my favorite hobby, with one night's debauchery.

    My uncle moved with his wife to Texas where they had a daughter. So, my uncle had this love of ice cream. One evening he tells my aunt that he's going to the store to get some ice cream. That was the last they ever saw of him. Just found out a few days ago that one of my Alabama aunts has my cousin's address in Texas and that she's very sweet, a family tradition (hey, I'm pretty sweet, right?). I'm excited to write her which I think I'll do today.

    Also got a cousin with her PhD in Chemical engineering same as her husband. It seems they're both professors at Princeton. Her husband is Chinese-American which must have raised some eyebrows in my large Alabama family.. My aunt Polly, the remaining matriarch welcomes him into the family with open arms. She, along with the rest of the family, welcomes my Korean wife with open arms. Told ya they were sweet.

    TMI?

    Billy Joe Armstrong from Green Day and Norah Jones came out with a tribute to the Everly Brothers called Foreverly a few years ago. Not to their popular songs, but their traditional country roots. It's an absolute wonderful little album that only hardcore Everly Brothers would understand and is a nod of respect from two modern icons to their forebears. Jones and Armstrong's voices work together perfectly. I found a copy in a Goodwill about a month after it came out. Such a sad way to find truly inspired records. When the modern and the past meet sometimes the results can be wonderful.

    Never could get into musical theater really. Like this number from Cabaret though. Foreshadows the Nazi's being ground into Russian tank gristle. Alex Harvey does the best cover of it.

    Check out their concert Live in Munich '77 on YouTube. It's one of the best concerts ever captured on film.
