Second Generation Avalon and Everly at Atlantic City Golden Nugget
ATLANTIC CITY — Frank Avalon Jr., son of actor/singer Frankie Avalon, and Edan Everly, the son of Don Everly (and nephew to Phil) of the Everly Brothers, were on the scene last Saturday night, May 26, at the Golden Nugget, where the Golden Boys performed all their classic hits.
The young Everly is Frankie Avalon (Sr.’s) guitar player when Avalon tours solo, and occasionally sings duets with him. Frankie Avalon Jr. is the drummer in his father’s band.
The Golden Boys tour includes Avalon, Fabian Forte and Bobby Rydell (all former Philadelphia
teen idols from the ’50s and ’60s), although Rydell was dealing with a health concern and was filled in for by Lou Christie in Atlantic City (Atlantic City Weekly) regrets misidentifying Christie on its Local Scene page, p.6, of its May 31-June 6 issue).
