I wanted to thank you for the enjoyment your music brought me while I was overseas in Afghanistan. I listened to your song over and over to escape. I even bought a 45 RPM single of it and a portable record player to hear it in its own most pure form. Thank you so much for bringing my heart home while I was in that place.

Hey Gene - I want you to know that I was really dissapointed that you couldn't make the show at the Patapsco Arena in Baltimore. I bought my tickets just because you were to appear. You and Tommy Hunt were the headliners. Captain Fly from D.C. was great, The Winstons, The Jewels, and some karaoke singer (???). We sat through all of it - waiting for you- but alas, it wasn't to be. Some hours later, someone said you were not there - WE LEFT. Now, I see on your calendar, you are to come back to Baltimore in April of 2008. I pray I live long enough to see that show. OH, I could go to see you elsewhere, but it would be nice to see you in my hometown. We've met before, twice in D.C.. At one venue, in the hallway, you and I sang a few lines from your old records that are rarely known. You also gave me a hug. I'm a true Gene Chandler fan, my husband is too! I think you are simply amazing to be able to put on shows like you do at this time in your life. Keep on steppin'. We hope to see you soon!

Listening to my compilation of Gene Chandlesr's Greatest, I typed your name into Google and up came this site. Terrific opening page. I grew up in the Washington DC area and in the early sixties I attended school on 7th St. at Immaculate Conception, every day I would walk down 7th to New York Avenue and over to the White House to catch my bus home. On my daily walk I would always pass a record store and in the window there was a poster (a large one at that) of the album cover of "Duke of Earl". Whenever I see that image I think of those days and smile and of course chant... "Duke Duke Duke, duke of Earl..." thanks for the memories Gene. Best wishes, Marc Flanagan Santa Monica CA
Mr.Chandler, My friend and I were blessed to see you Mr.Bulter,Mr.Price and Mr.King in concert in Milwaukee on February 28, 2007.We truly enjoyed the concert and I must say your voice has stood the test of time... You were sensational... I hope the Lord will continue to bless you with many, many more years of singing. God's blessings to you...

Just finished watching Doo Wop. "The Duke of Earl" is still the greatest.

We just saw you in Mentor and are still on a high. We shared Orange cake, champaign, chocolate covered blueberries, and rasberries with you. But,the best part was the wonderful conversation we had with you.You are the duke of kindness!You are a gentleman and have shared your blessings with us! The group from Stow/Kent!

I remember when I was about 12, listening to my transistor radio in bed at night (I wasn't supposed to!), and Duke of Earl is the first song that caught my ear back then. Now I have kids (and grandkids) and I play this stuff for them. Thanks Duke!!!
