The Everly Brothers - Just a mention of the name and the first thing that comes to mind is those amazing harmonies. The Everly Brothers influenced so many artists that it's almost impossible to list them. Among the groups who name the brothers as early influences are The Beatles, The Hollies and, of course, Simon and Garfunkel.

Phil died of of complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, in Burbank, California.

Here is a great video from the brother's 1983 reunion concert at Albert Hall.
