Word out today is that Phil Everly, one of the two Everly Brothers died today at the age of 74. The Everly Brothers consisting of brothers Phil and Don enjoyed huge chart success in the late 1950s and early 1960s with hits such as "Wake Up Little Susie", "Bye Bye Love", "Til I Kissed You", and "Let It Be Me". In the above clip they perform two of their most well known hits: "All I Have to Do Is Dream" and "Cathy's Clown".
The Everly Brothers were influenced the sound of many rock artists to follow, most notably The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and many others. Paul McCartney paid tribute to them in his Wings hit, "Let Em In" which mentions Phil and Don in one of the song's verses.
