Dave Burgess played guitar with The Champs. He wrote and recorded "Everlovin'" with The Chimes including the backing of Seals & Crofts in 1959. Dave became a member of studio groups "The Fleas" and "The Trophies" along with Rick Nelson, Glen Campbell and Jerry Fuller.

Rick Nelson's (David's brother) take on "Everlovin'" was the first "Rick" and not "Ricky" Nelson release and it got to the top twenty in 1961. Rick performed this on the Ozzie & Harriet Show. The flipside was "A Wonder Like You" got to the top twenty also.
