Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Remembering Phil Everly



Phil Everly, part of a duo with his brother Don that became one of the most influential acts in early rock history, passed away on Friday. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame states that the Everly Brothers "...transformed the Appalachian folk, bluegrass and country sounds of their Kentucky boyhood into a richly harmonized form of rock and roll." Above, singer Julius La Rosa introduced the Everly Brothers before they performed "Bye Bye Love" on June 22, 1957.
