RIP Phil Everly (1939-2014)

Phil, Jackie, Don, and Clyde

Another wonderful voice from the days when great singing was part of everyday American life, Phil Everly, has left us. Between songs at their London reunion concert, Don Everly smiled and said something to the effect that he, Don, sang the melody, and “Baby Brother” sang “the hard part.” Thank you, Phil, for leaving to us those magnificent, never-to-be-matched harmonies.

      Thanks for your comment, Allen. Actually, I was unaware of Phil having any particular guitar expertise, but I am grateful that his beautiful voice will remain with us through the many Everly Brothers recordings that survive.

      Yes, I should be back to writing in the blog in the next few days, and I hope I will be adding to it regularly again after that. My health has improved a good deal, and I have rested from the end of the school term.

      Trust me, the Everly Brothers are worth knowing. Theirs were some of the most beautiful harmonies ever sung, and they were the ultimate crossover act. Their first million-selling hit, “Bye Bye Love” was No. 1 on the Country chart, No. 2 on the Pop chart, and No. 5 on the Rhythm ‘n’ Blues chart.
