Hi all,
I happen to know about the Everly Bros episode, 'cause it happened at the 
Good Time Theatre at Knott's Berry Farm in L.A.
The lady who ran the operation told me the story that one of the brothers - 
I can't remember which - used to drink a whole lot.  Well, one night at the 
theatre he showed up smashed and the other brother finally got so upset, he 
smashed his guitar onstage and walked off!!  They didn't speak for years... 
I was working at the time with Spike Jones Jr., but that's a whole different 
ALL the Best,
