To Patti, Jason, Chris, Mrs margaret, and all family members, and of course Don---- am so sorry for your loss tonight--Phil gave to this world his talented voice. From baby boy Phil to the man he was, he and Don gave to this world, songs that can never ever be as great as they were. Am still in a state of shock. It hurts to lose , he was a member of all the fans all over.He was like a brother to me.

My prayers go out to all the family--both his personal family and also to the family all over the world that got to know Phil and his music. God Bless and I am sure that on a quiet day or night, we can hear him singing with the angels.

We lost a music hero but Jason and Chris lost a dad. Edan lost his uncle. Don lost his little brother. Margaret lost a son. We are all devasted but we cannot begin to feel how they are feeling. Please lift them all up in prayer tonight. I pray for peace and rest. Love you all.

The world as it has been since I was a girl will not be quite the same. When I think of Phil Everly, I like to picture him in his beautiful old home, perhaps on the back porch...strumming and singing. I am so very happy I had the opportunity to meet Phil and Don. It will always be one of the highlights of my life! The Everly boys brought so much pure musical perfection with their sweet, heartfelt tones. Their harmony was like clear, shining crystals singing. My heart is so sad, and my soul is hurting for all his family.

Goodnight forever, Phil Everly...singer extraordinaire.

The Everly Brothers voices were like silk floating in the breeze. Their songs touched each of us in countless ways! There will be millions of us who will miss Phil and his beautiful harmony with Don, and will remember him all the days of our lives. My deep heartfelt sympathy goes out to Phil, Don, and their families. May God bless all of you with peace, comfort, and beautiful memories of Phil and all he was and did. Rest in peace, dear Phil. I hope to see you again some day where you will surely be singing with the angels!

As from August 1960 The Everly Brothers are a part of my life and since then I only bought music from this very great duo. I played their music when I had to make my homework for school. My enthusiasm for their music went that far that I became editor of the magazine "Our Stars" of the Dutch Everly Brothers Fan Club founded in July 1959 by Henk Koster and one of the boys next-door. This was a very, very nice time! During the next 50 years when I played music 95% of the time was filled with their fabulous close-harmony singing whether I felt happy or sad - it always gave me a positive input. I attended quite some live performances in Holland (unfortunately not the Reunion in London in 1983 which I still very much regret) and the last tour through the UK in November 2005.
Many thanks Phil for the very good and nice music you and your brother Don gave to the world - R.I.P. and of course my sincere condoleances to all of the Everly family and friends -

Condolences to Patti, Don and all the Everly family.
To Phil, your music will live in our hearts and minds forever and it also influenced our souls - greatly. We will never forget you for as long as we live. Your family (extended) shows us the importance of family and how precious it is. I am grateful for the fact that I have always loved your music and had the chance to hear so much of it. The lights in Kentucky and Tennessee will be dimmed tonight and fans the world over (millions of them) will feel sadness in their hearts.
Vale Phil.

I was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of one half of the most phenomenal duos of American music History. As a child, Their songs were my lullabies at night. About ten years ago, I picked up a copy of their greatest hits from Warner Bros and remembered the great songs I hadn't heard in years-Ebony Eyes, Devoted to you, etc. I downloaded the tribute album "Foreverly" which brought them back to the forefront in 2013. God bless you as you grieve, you are not alone!

The Everly Brothers provided the soundtrack to my life.Songs Our Daddy Taught Us feels part of my DNA. I saw them five times in concert here in Scotland. They hugely influenced my own songwriting and musical tastes. I am heart broken at the news of Phil's passing. May Don and Phil's his own family find strength at this time. Their music provided me with the greatest joy, and the greatest comfort when I needed it. Forever Everly. xxx

So Sad.

The sound of my life.

The best concert I ever attended was The Reunion Concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 1983. A magical evening with Don & Phil backed by the finest band you could imagine.

Rest in Peace, Phil - may your soul be carried On the Wings of a Nightingale.

I am so sad to hear of the passing of Phil as are the MANY British Everly Brothers’ fans. God bless you Phil and thank you for your part in all the enormous amount of brilliant songs that you and Don performed together and have given us which will be with us to enjoy forever.

They were such a big part of my life and still are. Unfortunately I never saw them appear on stage but there have not been many days when I have not played their vinyl records, cassettes, cds and then dvds. Their songs have given me so much pleasure throughout my life and still do. I love them all but in particular: Crying in the Rain, Bye Bye Love, Cathy’s Clown, Wake Up Little Susie, etc, etc. I could go on and on!! They also had a big influence and were an inspiration to other artists who became famous in the late 50s/60s.

Such a sad day but what a brilliant music legacy Phil has left. His and Don's music will be played forever. There has never been a duo who can harmonise as well as Don and Phil did, and never will be! Gold Radio in England are playing their tracks in between the other songs all day today as a tribute to Phil. This shows how much he was thought of and respected in Britain, as they both were; also in so many other countries.

Thinking of you Phil, ALL of the family and, in particular, Don, who must be heartbroken. RIP Phil and thank you again – you will never be forgotten. xxxxxxxxx

I feel such sadness today. My condolences go out to Phil's family for losing their loved one. The world has lost an angelic singer and performer who, with his brother Don, influenced so many pop, country and rock and roll artists - the Beatles, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, the Byrds, Graham Nash. I was too young when the Everly Brothers first recorded and first heard their hits as oldies. I remember seeing on TV during the summer filling in for Johnny Cash's show. In the 1980s when they reunited, I rediscovered their music. I saw their incredible live performances in Atlantic City, Palm Springs, and at the Birchmere and Wolf Trap in Virginia and bought their albums and CDs. I am blessed to have met Phil after their show at Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA and talked with him for about an hour. He was sweet, honest, kind, and trusting. And adorable in his black turtleneck and slacks. He was arguably the best harmony singer who ever lived. Thank you Phil for sharing your talent with the world. You will always remain in our hearts.

My wife and I was devastated with the tragic news.We did our courting to Phil and Don.We have been married 55 years now and whenever we hear any of their music we are transported to our youth. When they visited the United Kingdom we went and watched them twice. A unique sound two unique lads never to be bettered or replaced. I wish the family strength through this sad time and our thoughts are with you all. A million thank you's for the pleasure you brought to us.
