Phil Everly

1939 – 2014

Once again, we must say farewell to another Rock and Roll legend.  Phil Everly passed away today after a battle with lung disease.

He and his brother Don formed the duo the Everly Brothers and they influenced many other singers of their time.  Songs such as “Wake Up Little Susie” and “Bye Bye Love” earned them a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

We’ll miss you Phil.

    Mary Ellen, his passing reminds us of the good times and tensions of our youth. “Wake Up Little Susie” is very relatable. Thanks for the memories, BTG
