RIP Phil Everly, One Half Of The Legendary Everly Brothers
In case you haven’t yet heard, Phil Everly, one-half of the legendary Everly Brothers, passed away, last night, at the age of 74. The Everly Brothers were pioneers of Rock ‘N Roll, but also enjoyed significant success in Country music. In fact, they are one of the few acts who have been enshrined in both the Rock ‘N Roll and Country Music Hall Of Fames. While they inspired later icons such as the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and Linda Ronstadt, their own influences came from acts such as the Louvin Brothers and Delmore Brothers.
This Thursday on The World Famous Ultimate Twang, we’ll pay tribute to the music of the Everly Brothers, playing several of their classics throughout the program. It starts, this Thursday at 4p, on Asheville Freemedia.
