Phil Everly, who along with his brother, Don, comprised the famous Everly Brothers, died Friday at the age of 74. According to a Jan. 3 article on Huffington Post, the famous singer died in Burbank, Calif. His wife, Patti, explained that he had died of complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The Rolling Stones Magazine described the Everly Brothers as "the most important vocal duo in rock." Their influence was felt in the coming decades in the work of many other artists. Some of their legendary hits include: “Bye, Bye, Love,” “Let It Be Me,” “All I Have to Do Is Dream,” and “Wake Up, Little Susie.”

Phil was the younger of the two brothers, and most people identified him as the one with the lighter hair. The Everly Brothers popularity spanned the years, but they experienced the height of their popularity in the 1950s and 1960s.

Phil Everly will be missed, but the beautiful music he created with his brother, Don, will live on forever.
