Jim Bailey: Everly Brothers made their mark in music industry

(Continued)

They remained prominent as a duo into the 1970s, both as singers and songwriters. The biggest number Phil wrote is probably “When Will I Be Loved.” They also co-wrote “Cathy’s Clown.”

The brothers toured extensively with Buddy Holly in 1957 and 1958. When Holly was killed in a plane crash in 1959, Phil Everly was one of his pallbearers. Brother Don, however, did not attend the funeral. “I couldn’t go to the funeral,” he explained. “I couldn’t go anywhere. I just took to my bed.”

Gradually they drifted more into a country-rock mode. They broke up as a duo in 1973, continuing solo careers with little fanfare. Eventually they got back together for Simon & Garfunkel’s Old Friends Reunion Tour in 2003-2004.

For pop fans of the 1950s and ’60s, the Everly Brothers were the epitome.
