Now gone forever.
Phil Everly, 74.
The gentle soul of the famous Everly Bros.
Musical legends who, in turn, inspired the English Everlys–John and Paul and the
Folkie Everlys–Paul and Art.
Numerous hits. A great live act I saw back in the ’90s at the Jube.
Their legendary Albert Hall reunion concert on DVD is spectacular fun.
In retrospect, Phil was the often-overlooked lead singer of the brother team. (His harmonies were tunes in themselves, in their right.) The Everlys would not have been as memorable and entertaining without his incredible vocal parts.
