The Everly Brothers' Phil Everly dies at 74

Phil Everly, who, along with his brother Don, made up the musical duo The Everly Brothers, died Friday in Burbank, Calif. due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease according to a report in the Los Angeles Times. He was 74 years old.

The Everly Brothers rose to prominence in the late 1950s and early ’60s and created classic hits such as “All I Have to Do Is Dream,” “Bye Bye Love,” and “When Will I Be Loved.”

Everly was born in Chicago on Jan. 19, 1939, and moved across the country with his very musical family during his childhood. He had a brief solo career in the ’70s before reuniting with his brother for a concert in London in 1983. The two were among the first inductees at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

Don, who is two years older than Phil, is still living.

Ready to get folked up?

Earlier this year, indie-country stalwart Bonnie “Prince” Billy (né Will Oldham) and Faun Fables mastermind Dawn McCarthy teamed up for an Everly Brothers cover album, What the Brothers Sang. Among the duets on the Drag City-released album is “Omaha,” for which they commissioned multimedia artist Ben Russell to make a video — and you can watch it exclusively here.

The clip features both singers’ faces the entire time as a series of other arty images come and go in the background. It is, we think you’ll find, a bit hypnotic.

Catch their video for “Omaha” below:
