It was with deep sadness that we recently announced the passing of our friend and brother, and foundational member of The Beat, drummer Everett Morton.

There was a huge outpouring of love and support from the fans, for which we are eternally grateful. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

One thought on “Goodbye to our friend & brother, Everett Morton

  1. To the Family of Everett Morton and The English Beat,
    My sincerest, deepest heartfelt condolences. Everett was an amazing, unique drummer and a legend. Unfortunately i never got to see the original English Beat live. I loved you guys as a kid and I still love you guys as an adult. I will always love The English Beat and my kids do now also. Please know Everett brought so much happiness to people’s lives and will continue to do so. I still listen everyday to some of the most amazing albums ever created. The English Beat are one of those bands that just captured “lightning in a bottle”. I really really liked General Public and the Fine Young Cannibals but The English Beat are embedded in my heart forever. This one hurts so bad just like it did with Roger and Saxa. The amazing legacy will still continue and one of these years when it is not expected, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will come calling.©2012-2016//©2000-2016
