What a loss. I grew up on the Everly Bros. harmonies. Their music will be forever a part of my life.

The news just came over the radio. I was just getting ready to post this. They were a big influence on the Beach Boys and the Beatles. Many others as well.

R.I.P.
I can't believe this.
In fact, I only found out just now through this thread.

Guess there's no chance of a Everly Brothers reunion.
Wonder what Don's reaction was?

RIP very sad. Sad

And what's really creepy is, last night I had a dream in which I was singing the song "Alll I Have To Do Is Dream."  Cry

The dream also had a Carpenters song in it, so if Richard Carpenter bites the dust any time soon, you can blame me!

I had the great fortune of seeing the Everly Brothers perform together as part of Simon & Garfunkel's Old Friends tour. 

Such a beautiful sound he and Don had together, very sad news indeed.

I just learned that Phil Everly died of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The same thing that killed my dad n 2009. This both saddens me and pisses me off. My dad fought for eight years with it. It felt more like twenty. What an evil bastard of a disease.  Angry Sorry to "rant" a little here. May Phil rest in peace. I hope that wherever he is now, he's feeling like his old self again, happy and healthy.

This sucks that all the legends are starting to pass, in fact it's becoming a monthly occurrence. I'm digging out my Everly Brothers cds today to pay my respects. Their influence on Rock and Roll is immeasurable. No Everlys = no Beatles. RIP you Birddog.

It's already been said; the Everlys were the best.

Didn't know his mom was still alive. She must be one tough ol' gal.

Fron Brian's Facebook page:

My heart is so incredibly saddened by the passing of Phil Everly. The Everly Bros music was a huge inspiration for me growing up. As brothers, those harmonies just sound so sweet and tender, I think it's a family thing. I could never get enough of their voices. Love and Mercy to his family, friends and devoted fans.

Some trivia: Phil was the owner of the Everly Music Company, maker of a.o. Everly guitar strings.

The Everly Brothers were spectacular.  I was fortunate enough to see them during their reunion tour in the '80's.  Their "Roots" album is beautiful.  All the early hits are timeless, and I also love their "Pass the Chicken and Listen" album.  I'd also recommend lesser known songs like "Empty Boxes", "The Lord of the Manor" and "On My Way Home Again".  Phil will be missed greatly, may he rest in peace.  I'll do my crying in the rain...

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

Why? When you hear John and Paul harmonizing, you are hearing them imitating the Everly Brothers.

The Everly's were one of many influences on the Beatles. If the Everly Bros. weren't around, that doesn't mean the Beatles wouldn't have existed.  Sometimes the Beatles were referred to as the English Everly Brothers. Here's a comparison of their early stuff though - the harmonies:

I'm so glad I got to see the Everly Bros. singing live.  I caught them at a county fair a few years after their first reunion, and went back to see them three more times. They had some kind of third element that would come in when their two voices combined. I've seen a lot of live acts singing live harmony, but none of them had that quality that the brothers had. It's just too bad they didn't get along better and continue with touring, because according to Phil's son, he could still sing in spite of the lung problem.

The Everlys appeared with the Beach Boys on their 25th anniversary special. I had forgotten about it until looking for some Everly clips. The Everlys did "Don't Worry Baby" (which they had done for the "Tequila Sunrise" film soundtrack), lip-synced a bit of "Getcha Back" with the Boys, and a little bit of "Wake Up, Little Susie":

Funny your posting this clip, as one of the comments  is a supposed? Lennon quote refuting your post:   

>>Without the Everly Brothers, There would have been no Beatles": John Lennon <<
