In the late 50s, early 60s, the first heart throb photograph I pinned on my bedroom wall was one of my beloved Phil and Don Everly.

I so loved those good looking boys and their glorious harmonies. Here, in England, we'd never ever heard harmonies or music anything like that of the Everlies.

Now, over 50 years later, nothing ever changes and everything comes full circle. I have a photograph of the Everly Brothers 'pinned' to a wall of my PC and my daughter and grandsons are Everly Brothers fans. Such is the enduring nature of the brothers' music.

Thank you for the wonderful music boys. God bless you, Phil, and God comfort Don, your wife and children, your mother and all of your your family.

I am so very sorry to hear of Phillip's passing. I have loved the brothers for so many years. I have dreaded this moment, but knew when they retired that it was for good reason. We will never forget you. With so much love I write this note to the family of the one and only Phillip Everly. God bless and keep you.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Phil. But comforted by such wonderful memories of seeing the Everly Brothers perform three times, and having the music to cherish for ever - it never fails to move me. My sincerest condolences to the family.

I have listened to Phil's beautiful voice since I was old enough to listen! One of the highlights of my life was seeing the Everly Brothers live at the Desert Inn in Las Vegas in the 1980's. Thank you Phil, for having one of the most beautiful voices ever, and sharing it with us for so many years! God Bless the entire Everly family, and I am sorry for your loss.

On learning of Phil's death Friday night we put a picture of Phil on our home altar and lit a candle. I have wished for decades that I could have met Phil (and Don). In the 1970s I learned much about harmony and backing vocals from your records. There was always something in Phil's eyes that told me he took things very seriously. Yesterday as I watched the "Odyssey" recording, as usual there are three places that move me to tears every time: Ike's grave marker, Phil singing, "That Was the Last Thing on My Mind", and both of you singing "Let It Be Me" - essentially to each other at the Albert Hall. I'm sure you have moved millions more like me. Be assured we love you for what you have given the world, and for who you are.

Sincere condolences to Phil's family, brother Don and all of the rest of the Everly family and friends. Life-long fan of the brothers & their music. Phil and Don inspired myself and my only younger brother (who also recently passed) to play music. Phil, you will be missed. "When Will I Be Loved"? Phil, you are loved, always have been, always will be.

I am so saddened by this. Like everyone, I have felt above and beyond for them from the beginning----for 57 years. Grateful that I have seen them perform many times---and so pleased that I have met and talked with Phil. His persona is rich with kindness and intelligence---he is a giant among others. And just being himself and with his music, he touches so many. The hero comes when he is needed----when our beliefs become pale and weak, there comes a man from that need who is bright and shining--and everyone living reflects that light and stores some for when he is not around. Dear Phil, may your bright light always shine.

If there's a storybook Heaven, the angels may stop singing and simply listen when Phil steps through the 'gates'.

From the first time I heard the beautiful harmonies of Phil and Don, I have been a fan. I was too young to witness their early fame, but to me, they will always represent God's gift of song to the world.

I believe Heaven's choir just found the most angelic voice they've ever heard, and I am jealous that we will never hear it again in this life. Rest in peace, Phil. You gave so many of us years of enjoyment. God bless you and your family!

Some 25 years ago, on holiday in an obscure part of the Caribbean, I stood in a crush in a local bar that I'd rushed into to take shelter from a sudden rainstorm. There were people from all around the world in that bar speaking a score of different languages, when someone put a dollar in the juke box.

Suddenly the whole bar erupted in song as two glorious and unmistakable voices rang out across the bar:

# Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream #

All of those people from all around the world, yet we all knew the lyrics to your song, Phil and Don.

There's a lovely video of Phil singing 'Silent Night' last year - supposedly his last public performance - at the very end of this piece from Yahoo.

MODERATOR NOTE: This video is from his son Jason's company website: Cleartone Strings.

I was very sad to get this news. Your music has been with me all my life and it will remain so. One of the greatest moments in my life was when I brought my dad [a fan since 1957 when he got his first record from my grandmother; Bye Bye Love] to London and the Royal Albert Hall where the Everly Brothers played (05). A couple of years later when we went to the U.S. we made a detour to Central City KY on a journey that brought us in the brothers' footsteps (Chicago, Nashville, LA, among others). My thoughts are with the Everly family. Rest in peace Philip, thank you for the music; you'll never be forgotten. Love//Michael Wiberg, Sweden

On Sunday June 30, 1957, the day after my 10th birthday, my Dad called me in from playing because "those boys you like to listen to on the radio are on Ed Sullivan." Entering through the kitchen door I could hear the voices and when I stopped in front of the TV set I was, for the first time ever, smitten beyond reason. A priceless moment ever forgotten. No boys I knew looked like that but within days the older boys in my neighborhood started to copy that distinctive look starting with the hair. I was so fortunate to have seen The Everly Brothers in concert several times during the 1980s and early 90s. I cherish those concerts, the tour books with wonderful photographs, the CDs which I have been playing all weekend and my Everly Brothers scrapbook which I began as a 10-year old girl. The critics can argue about their place in history but my mind and heart are the only guides I need. I cherished them at age 10 and will continue to do so until God calls me home.

Been fan since 11 yrs old. Now at the age of 66 am devastated on hearing of Phil's death. So young. Met them at Nottingham England 10 years ago and had photo's taken - to treasure for Everly - saw their last 3 concerts there. My friend and I vowed to see them until either they died or we - Phil has played his final concert.
There will never be a harmony like it - I have everything they ever sang in my record collection. photos, fan letters from the 1960's. I even took their photograph when they were on the TV - My passion and admiration for them has never faded. End of a treasured era. Blessings to his entire family and especially mum as it is hard to see your children die.

You know, I loved the 'Evs', but what really annoys me has been the coverage by the British media and, I'm sorry to say, some of the contributors to this site.
Phil was more than just the harmony to Don, however fantastic that was...hear 'It's All Over' on the In our Image Album or 'Sleepless Nights'. He was a fantastic songwriter and vocalist in his own right. Listen to 'The London Sessions' CD which is two albums from '74 and'75 and if 'Words in Your Eyes', written by Phil, solo by Phil and harmony by Phil, does not bring a lump to your throat, well..... His two other solo albums were great as well and if you can get hold of 'The Everly Brothers Rare Solo Tracks' with songs from both Phil and Don, you're in Everly Heaven.
I have already contributed my earlier thoughts and condolences: this is just a sort of PS from the UK

I loved hearing Don and Phil singing and saw them twice. The second time was when I attended with my daughter and Albert Lee and Buddy Emmons accompanied them. One of my favorite concerts! All my best to his family. Tom

Over a year ago..I found this site and posted my memory of my most favorite concert. From that time, til now, I have met and got to chat with some incredible Everly fans! The history of the Everly's is staggering! I was fortunate enough to meet Phil. He was a TOTAL gentleman! I was fortunate enough to meet Edan, at the 1st annual get together! He was a TOTAL gentleman! I hope....Edan, and the Everly family, will help us continue our love for Phil and Don!
