Phil Everly RIP

Phil Everly, one half of the hit-making Everly Brothers, died January 3, 2014, at a hospital in Burbank, California, at the age of 74. He and his brother Don were signed to Cadence Records in the mid-1950s and are well-known for such hits as "Bird Dog," "Bye Bye Love," "Wake Up Little Susie," "All I Have to Do Is Dream" or "Cathy's Clown."
