Everly Brothers Caricature, illustrated here at the Savoy Hotel, London on April 2, 1960 with Phil Everly (back) age 21 and Don Everly (front) age 23 at the start of their UK tour.
Don is holding his Gibson J-200 guitar, customized with dual pickguards (designed by Don because of his heavy strumming) which became their iconic guitar look.
In 1962, Gibson collaborated with the Everly Brothers to produce the Everly Brothers Flattop. This flat top guitar featured a thin J-185-style body and an adjustable bridge.
The Everly Brothers were an American country-influenced rock and roll duo, known for steel-string acoustic guitar playing and close harmony singing.
The duo was raised in a musical family, first appearing on radio singing along with their father Ike Everly and mother Margaret Everly as “The Everly Family” in the 1940s.
When the brothers were still in high school, they gained the attention of prominent Nashville musicians like Chet Atkins, who began to groom them for national attention.
They began writing and recording their own music in 1956, and their first hit song came in 1957, with “Bye Bye Love”, written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant. The song hit No. 1 in the spring of 1957, and additional hits would follow through 1958, many of them written by the Bryants, including “Wake Up Little Susie”, “All I Have to Do Is Dream”, and “Problems”. In 1960, they signed with the major label Warner Bros. Records and recorded “Cathy’s Clown”, written by the brothers themselves, which was their biggest selling single.
The brothers enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve in 1961, and their output dropped off, though additional hit singles continued through 1962, with “That’s Old Fashioned (That’s the Way Love Should Be)” being their last top-10 hit.
By 1973, with the growing drug usage in the 1960s, as well as changing tastes in popular music, led to the group’s decline in popularity.
However, their style heavily influenced the generation that followed including The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Bee Gees and Simon & Garfunkel.
They were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as part of the inaugural class of 1986.
Phil Everly died at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California, on January 3, 2014, 16 days before his 75th birthday, of lung disease.
