    Showing my age, but this one really hurts. Back before my voice went even further South than it already was, I could sing all the Everly Brothers' harmony parts. OK, I tried, at least.

    Hope Don's doing OK.

    Owensboro's own.

    Other O'boro notables: Florence Henderson, Rex Chapman.

    And home to the last public hangin' execution in the United States.

    Got into a fight one night at the Boiler Room.

    That's all I got.

    I saw the Everly Brothers on the Simon & Garfunkel reunion tour 10 years ago. Their voices were still great.
    One of my band mates and I were trying to sing the Everly Brothers harmony just the other night. We failed.
    This is a really great BBC documentary
    RIP to one of the most influential Rock & Rollers of all-time.

    Knoxville is where the Everlys did most of their growing up and where they got noticed by Chet Atkins.

    All I Have To Do Is Dream is my favorite Everly Brothers song. And yes, their harmony was outstanding.

    RIP Phil

    They were the type of music you could play when your grandmother was around.

    These words from the Everly Brothers always makes me smile:

    Whatta we gonna tell your mama
    Whatta we gonna tell your pa
    Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say “ooh-la-la”
    Wake up little Susie

    And they sang those words with such great harmony.

    RIP, Phil.
