Don Everly 68!

Everly.jpg.gifIt seems hard to believe, but Don Everly (the older of the two Everly Brothers) turned 68 on February 1st. I cannot think of any other two people who sing close harmony better than Don and Phil Everly. They have been singing together for sixty years, and, as evidenced by their performance in December 2003 on the Simon and Garfunkle Tour, they can still do it. On the night I saw them, they absolutely owned the audience.

Power Line has a nice piece on the Brothers Everly, which contains a link to Power Line’s post about the Simon Garfunkle tour I mentioned above and which I wrote about here.

Happy birthday, Don. Thanks for the tunes.


  1. Oh yes, the Everly brothers!! Crying in the Rain and Cathy’s Clown were a couple i played over and over; makes me dreamy just thinkin’ bout em!

  2. You’ve never heard the fabulous Smith Brothers. They LEARNED harmony from the Everly Brothers and have been singing together for almost 40 years.

    Rob and Dave— they can still cut the mustard.

  3. Mr. Parkway,

    When I saw them with S&G, I enjoyed S&G, but would not have been upset if the Bros were the only act.
