With harmonies such as 'Bye Bye Love', 'Wake Up Little Susie' and 'All I Have To Do Is Dream', the Everly Brothers brought romance and professionalism to rock'n'roll. Their music was a unique blend of rock'n'roll, country, rockabilly and bluegrass, an eclectic yet accessible sound that appealed to people of all tastes. Throughout the fifties the Everlys reigned as kings of popular music, selling millions of singles and albums. In 1960 they were able to negotiate a new ten year contract with an unprecendented advance of $1 million.
But by 1962 the steady stream of hits had dried up as the Everlys became dogged by bad luck: National service, severe drug and marital problems, sibling rivalry and the dawn of the Beat era. They continued to tour the world until the early 70s, but the story was effectively over. Ironically, the group that epitomised love and togetherness were no longer able to work together. They broke up - on stage - in 1973.
For 10 years they pursued separate careers, refusing to sing together or to even speak to one another, until in 1983 they finally settled 'the big Southern feud', as they called it, and played a reunion concert at the Albert Hall. They have been touring the world and recording new songs ever since.
In Walk Right Back Roger White presents an exhaustive history of the Everly Brothers' career evolution and public and private personalities, viewing their music as an important part of the evolution of rock itself. With 80 illustrations and a preface by the Everlys themselves (as well as tributes from many of the stars whose music they influenced), Walk Right Back is a must-have for any fan.

Roger White writes an entertaining and factual resume of Don & Phil Everly`s extensive career. Endorsed by both brothers this book chronicles their early days in Kentucky through to the Reunion Concert in 1983. Written in an easy to read style this book crams in lots of facts about the Everlys and is complimented with lots of photographs both in concert and off stage. This book will appeal to music lovers in general, comments from Bob Dylan, Dave Edmunds, Tim Rice, Buddy Holly and other famous artists. Great read and well worth buying, enjoy.
