I've just woken to the news that one of my favourite singers of all time has died. He and Don inspired so many others, including The Beatles, and their songs will live for ever.

Sad news, indeed.

The Everly Brothers were part of the soundtrack of my youth, I loved their music. I was lucky enough to see them live several times. It isn't many artists who can do two solid hours of greatest hits and still leave some out.

RIP Phil and thank you for the music.

I was always astounded at the diversity of their style: Country; Rock; Pop; Gospel; Blues; and just a few tunes that were all their own.

Loved all their songs. Though they were a bit before my time, I count them among my all-time favourites. R.I.P. Phil. You will always be fondly remembered.
