“Don lived by what he felt in his heart. Don expressed his appreciation for the ability to live his dreams… with his soulmate and wife, Adela, and sharing the music that made him an Everly Brother,” a statement said.
The Everly brothers were the children of country and western singers and performed on the family radio show while growing up.
In their heyday, between 1957 and 1962, they had 15 US top 10 hits. These included Bye Bye Love and Cathy’s Clown.
The duo called it quits during a performance in California in 1973, in which Phil smashed his guitar and walked off stage.
