Armstrong and Jones pay their respects…
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones recently paid tribute to the late Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers. Everly passed away on Friday (Jan. 3) at age 74.
Armstrong collaborated with Jones recently on an Everly Brothers covers album titled Foreverly. The album was released in November 2013. Speaking on Everly, Armstrong wrote: "The Everly Brothers go way back far as I can remember hearing music. Those harmonies live on forever. We're gonna miss you Phil. Gratitude."
Jones made her own statement, saying: "The Everlys had a huge influence on all kinds of musicians. The high harmonies Phil sang were fluid and so beautiful and always sound effortless in a way that just washes over the listener. He was one of our greats and it's very sad to lose him."
