The Everly Brothers had some great songs and a lot bands such as the Beatles copied their style. Phil will be missed. I seen them back in the 80's and they were great!

Love, love, love the Everly brothers! I hope he gets the remembrances he deserves. My dad played his records all the time when I was little. Beautiful harmonies, great songs! Rest in peace Phil.
