UPDATED: Phil Everly Passes Away
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.04.2014



Update: Billboard reports that Phil Everly's brother Don, the other half of the Everly Brothers, has commented on his death.

Don wrote: "I loved my brother very much. I always thought I'd be the one to go first. I was listening to one of my favorite songs that Phil wrote and had an extreme emotional moment just before I got the news of his passing. I took that as a special spiritual message from Phil saying good-bye. Our love was and will always be deeper than any earthly differences we might have had. The world might be mourning an Everly Brother, but I'm mourning my brother Phil Everly. My wife Adela and I are touched by all the tributes we're seeing for Phil and we thank you for allowing us to grieve in private at this incredibly difficult time."


Original: One half of the Everly Brothers has passed away. The LA Times reports that Phil Everly, who made up the iconic duo with his brother Don, died on Friday in Burbank of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at the age of seventy-four.

Phil's wife said that the disease was caused by a lifetime of smoking and that he "fought long and hard" against it. She added that the family was "absolutely heartbroken."

The Everly Brothers were pioneers of the rock and country genre with hits like "Cathy's Clown, "Bye Bye Love," "Wake Up Little Susie," "All I Have To Do Is Dream" and "Bird Dog." They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

On behalf of 411, our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Everly.
