The death of Phil Everly marks another loss for the initial class of Rock Hall inductees. Back in 1986, The Everly Brothers (Phil and Don) were among the first 13 artists inducted into the Hall.

Of that class, the surviving members are Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Don Everly.

Phil Everly passed away on January 3rd following complications attributed to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 74.

Labeled as "the most important vocal duo in rock" by Rolling Stone, The Everly Brothers incredible harmonies influenced the likes of The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, The Byrds and The Hollies.

Their biggest hits "Wake Up Little Susie", "When Will I Be Loved", "Cathy's Clown" and "All I Have To Do Is Dream" are just a few of the staple songs of early Rock and Roll.

In a video posted within this article, Graham Nash formerly of The Hollies and later Crosby, Stills & Nash, talks about meeting the Everly Brothers and how the encounter changed his life.
