Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers dies at 74


By Randy Lewis

January 3, 2014, 5:34 p.m.

This post has been updated. See note below for details.

Phil Everly, who with his brother, Don, made up the most revered vocal duo of the rock-music era, their exquisite harmonies profoundly influencing the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Byrds and countless younger-generation rock, folk and country singers, died Friday in Burbank of complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife, Patti Everly, told The Times. He was 74.

“We are absolutely heartbroken,” she said, noting that the disease was the result of a lifetime of cigarette smoking. “He fought long and hard.”

During the height of their popularity in the late 1950s and early 1960s, they charted nearly three dozen hits on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, among them “Cathy’s Clown,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” “Bye Bye Love,” “When Will I Be Loved” and “All I Have to Do Is Dream.” The Everly Brothers were among the first 10 performers inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when it got off the ground in 1986.

"They had that sibling sound," said Linda Ronstadt, who scored one of the biggest hits of her career in 1975 with her recording of "When Will I Be Loved," which Phil Everly wrote. "The information of your DNA is carried in your voice, and you can get a sound that you never get with someone who’s not blood related to you. And they were both such good singers--they were one of the foundations, one of the cornerstones of the new rock 'n' roll sound."

Robert Santelli, executive director of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, said Friday, “When you talk about harmony singing in the popular music of the postwar period, the first place you start is the Everly Brothers.... You could say they were the vocal link between all the 1950s great doo wop groups and what would come in the 1960s with the Beach Boys and the Beatles. They showed the Beach Boys and the Beatles how to sing harmony and incorporate that into a pop music form that was irresistible.”

In addition to his wife, Everly is survived by his brother, Don, their mother, Margaret, sons Jason and Chris, and two granddaughters. Funeral services will be private.

A full obituary will appear in Saturday's Times.

Update at 6:06 p.m.: An earlier edition of this post misspelled the title of the song "Wake Up Little Susie" as "Wake Up Little Suzie."

Loved this duo, great harmonies, and they sang in an era when people still had talent and knew how to sing.

Sad news about Phil. I'll do my crying in the rain.  :\'(

I was thinking of that too... although she hasn't posted in a while. After all, they were her favourite band.

LOL thats true ! I remember her doing a song with Metallica back in the late 90's, and I went to their concert here in australia. They stated a "special Guest" which i thought mightve been her which ended up being hard rock band at the time Korn.

If you listen to the metallica song "the memory remains" It has Marianne Faithfull sing in it.....

Green Day front-man and AMERICAN IDIOT composer/lyricist Billie Joe Armstrong paid touching tribute to recently deceased rock icon Phil Everly with a special performance on last night's 2014 Grammy Awards.

Armstrong joined with notable country crooner Miranda Lambert for a performance of the Everly Brothers hit"When I Will Be Loved" during last night's telecast.

I really would have liked to see it at the beginning of the show and a longer tribute.CBS blew a golden oppertunity to give performers time to have some second thoughts on their performances.At the very least I would have liked to see Beyonce and LLCool j switch costumes.Would have been much easier on the eyes,IMO.
