Rock Music Giant Phil Everly Dies

Rock And Roll Heaven added Phil Everly to it's growing roster last week.  Phil was half of the Everly Brothers who scored hits in the 1960s and were called by Rolling Stone magazine, "the most important  vocal duo in rock",  really saying something from a genre that has seen Simon And Garfunkle and Seals And Crofts.  The duo which was one of many American acts seemingly swept aside by the British invasion of the mid-1960s, was an influence on the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and the previously mentioned Simon And Garfunkle.  Their songs included such standards as "Bye Bye Love" and "All I Have To Do Is Dream".
