All I Have To Do Is Dream: The Everly Brothers

Legendary pop singer Phil Everly, who together with his brother, Don, formed one of the 1960s most popular pop duos, died Friday.

The Everly Brothers charted nearly three dozen hits in their heyday from the late ’50s through the early ’60s. Some of their most notable songs – “Cathy’s Clown,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” “Bye Bye Love,” “When Will I Be Loved” and “All I Have to Do is Dream” – have become pop staples and influenced major acts such as the Beatles, the Beach Boys and the Byrds.

  1. Kat,

    Really sad news that, for some reason, really walloped me. What wonderful harmonies.

    And let’s not forget Simon & Garfunkel!

    I notice that Phil was 74. A tremendous amount of great singers are in their early 70s, many of them still performing. It’s gonna hit hard in the years to come as we lose them.

    Pete Seeger is 94 though, and will probably outlast most of them.

      Ted,
      It seems the paper every few days is announcing the passing of some singer whip just can’t be replaced, His sound seems to continue , but it is missing that special touch only the original can give us.
