Statler Brothers Are Not

Two of the group are brothers, but their name is DeWitt. The other two are not brothers. Don and Harold Reid, along with Phil Balsley and Lew DeWitt make up the group called the Statler Brothers.

Originally, they called themselves the Kingsmen, until the song "Louie, Louie" by another group called The Kingsmen hit the charts. They decided to call themselves The Statler Brothers, borrowed from a brand of tissue paper.

Lew DeWitt wrote "Flowers On The Wall" one of their biggest hits. LINK
