We listened to their music as we drove home from school or cleaned our rooms or feigned finishing algebra homework – or kissed our first sweethearts. The Everly Brothers’ smooth voices eased some of our adolescent days with their cool crooning; music that remains imprinted on our hearts.

Phil Everly, 74, one half of the singing duo, has passed away from chronic obstruction pulmonary disease (COPD).

Bye, bye, love.
