RIP Phil, loved your music.
Aw so sad. RIP And now I am going to go listen to Let It Be Me–one of my favorite Everly Brothers' songs.
I don't know him, I'll listen to some of his music now hoping it's good.RIP anyway.
Great medley! RIP, Phil.
This is real music, with real harmonies, unlike the 'auto-tuned' pop-tarts out there today. Rest In Peace Phil you will be missed!
They made some beautiful music.
These brothers made some lovely music.
I loved the Everly Brothers – they made such beautiful music together. I had their song "Devoted to you" as my wedding song. It's in this clip Enty posted. RIP Phil
RIP Phil you will be missed. I was raised on your music as my mom adored you all. Kentucky boys that made good. I saw them several times growing up. I used to love watching my parents put their records on and they would dance around the living room to them. Wonderful memories.
If not for the Everly Brothers, there wouldn't have been the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, even Joni Mitchell or Crowded House. They were beyond influential, and Phil's high harmonies were transcendent.
Norah Jones and Billy Joe from Green Day are doing a Everly Brothers tribute album, due out in February, I think: http://tinyurl.com/m5pvmlm
One of the true greats. RIP.
His wife blamed it on "a life long smoking habit". Sad. Loves their harnonies.
I remember hearing Graham Nash say in an interview that he met his idols, the Everly Brothers, in the early 60s, and they spent about half an hour talking with him (at 2:00 a.m., after a concert). That meeting convinced Graham to go into music. He spoke with such reverence and love about the meeting; the brothers were very kind and encouraging. Paul Simon has spoken with similar warmth and appreciation about the Everlys; they were part of his "Graceland" tour.
