Phil Everly died.

Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers has died aged 74.He died in Burbank CA of COPD ( chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ) due to being a lifetime smoker.
The Everly Brothers music was one of my mainstays throughout my years at sea in the 60s & 70s
RIP Phil, you and your bro' were great.

R.I.P. many of my vintage will remember their singing fondly (especially Dream, Dream, Dream)!

Very sad,
I saw the Everly Brothers at the Liverpool Empire a few times over the years, they were a great act.
I could never work out which of the two sang in a higher register, their harmony was so perfect.
RIP Phil

A great Duo in their day. Sad that Phil has now gone.

Never saw them though have some good CD's of theirs which we listen too not infrequently. As Woodend says, 'Dream, Dream, Dream.' Interesting his wife puts it down to "" a life long smoking habit."
May he join the band up there & play on forever.

Pat, it was "Baby Boy Phil" who sang in the higher register, harmonising with his elder brother Don, who usually took the lead role in their songs.

Put 7 Feb in your diaries, for on that evening BBC4 will give a fresh airing to the 'Arena' documentary made in the 1980s. This will then be followed by a rare re-broadcast of the famous 1983 Reunion Concert.

Pat,
Remember watching an interview with him when he was asked what were his most memorable moments in his career.One was of him and Don walking down Broadway,New York with Chuck Berry having just heard Bye Bye Love had reached No.1.,and the other was when performing in Liverpool when the whole audiance sang Dream back to the Everlys on stage.

That happened at the concert I was at, it was magic.
I bet he never mentioned the woman in the front row who had a crush on Don, and who attended every single show on that UK tour, and made a nuisance of herself,so much so that she was escorted from the theatre weeping and wailing.
Pat

RAyL,
Ive got that reunion concert on video, must have watched it a hundred times.
Unfortunately I no longer have a video player. I keep meaning to have the video converted to DVD but never got round to it.
Regards,
Pat

A couple of years ago I bought a Humax PVR and have enjoyed recording all kinds of things. It is utterly reliable and has a huge storage capacity. I'll seize the opportunity on 7 Feb to add the two programmes I've mentioned; a fine memory of a great act.

I saw them just the once - about twenty years ago in Sheffield.

Brilliant documentary about the Everly Brothers with contributions from many legendary names from the music industry.But the star of the show was 94 year old Margaret Everly with a real personal insight to the lives of her sons.Wonderful cross section of the music of Don and Phil.Special thanks to Bill Kenwright's sincere and sometimes moving narrative.

Eighteen minutes into the programme Bill Kenwright played their recording of 'Kentucky'. I'd never heard it before and I sat there riveted by its beauty; what a classic sound! It was great hearing the old hit records and their B sides too, rather than having to rely on the versions on the Reunion Concert however good that was.

Downside was having to hear the unpalatable truth that the pair quarrelled again a few years after the 1983 reunion, so that by the time came when they were recording a song composed for them by Andrew Lloyd Webber, they weren't singing together any more and recorded their parts separately. Thank goodness for the nice words Don uttered after his younger brother's death--they offset the damage to some degree.
