    Phil Everly, the younger brother of the Everly brothers passed away a couple of days ago. He was married to my wife's cousin for many years. He was a down to earth, friendly guy that we all just knew as "Phil". His passing has been a loss to not only the family, but to music. I sequenced a tribute to him (attached MP3). Here is a photo of him and Patti last December. RIP and God speed, Phil.

    I saw this yesterday and was going to add to my Musician Obituaries. Smooth vocals - him and his brother. Inspired a lot of bands including the Beatles.

    I loved their songs and vocals as a teen. They often played on the same bill with the Kingston Trio. So much so that the Trio altered a line in one of their songs "The Everglades" to:
    "Runnin' like a dog through the Everglades
    Skippin' like a frog through the slimy bog
    Runnin' through the trees from the Everlys

    You will be missed Phil, Requiescat in Pace
