These guys were heroes for my brother and I. We would often mimic their vocals and harmony and their songs are some of my fondest memories of growing up.

The frist Everly Brothers' song I heard was "Wake Up, Little Susie". What I really like about the song was the harmonies that Phil and Don used when singing the song. These two where the original brother duo and the way they infused early rock with elements of country music is just awesome! The harmonies that Don and Phil used are also great and thousands of prefromers from the Bee Gees to Nick Lowe tryed to copy those harmonies, but none were as good as The Everly Brothers. Thanks, Don and Phil!

The Everly Brothers are not only among the most important and greatest early rock n' roll stars, but also some of the most influential singers of any era. Brothers Phil and Don transformed the sounds of Appalachian folk music, bluegrass and country into a harmonizing form of rock n' roll.

Oh man. A real loss to the music world. He and Don are true greats. We'll miss the amazing harmonies.

Bye, bye, Phil (acoustic guitar riffs inserted here)

Rest in peace, Phil. Your soulful voice and harmonies will be greatly missed.

Erin Everly, daughter of Don Everly, was the inspiration for two Guns 'N Roses songs: "Sweet Child O' Mine and "Patience"

The first brother duo in rock n' roll, The Everly Brothers were not only among the most important and finest rock and roll singers of the 50s, but also among the most influential rockers of any musical era afterwards and set unmatched standards for close, two-part harmonies.

Several errors in the above article, most notably the claim that the brothers continued to tour until 2014. Phil's emphysema ended the run in 2005. His voice was deeper than Don's at that point, and Don wouldn't lower the chords for him.

Thanks for that fact, Sam. I'll try to be more sport-on about the information that I post on this site.
