Everly brother dies

Everly brother dies January 6, 2014

Phil Everly, 74, died.  He and his brother Don formed the Everly Brothers, whose harmonies–characteristic of the “brother groups” in early country music–they  carried over into rock ‘n’ roll, serving as models for the Beatles, Beach Boys, the Byrds, and many others.  (Are there any contemporary groups that do much with harmony these days? I’ve lost touch.)

See Appreciation: Phil Everly, half of a duo with unearthly sound – The Washington Post.

I heard the Everly brothers in one of their reunion concerts a few years ago, and even in that late stage of their career their singing blew me away.  They have to be among the best singers in popular music.  Listen to them after the jump.
