Walter Tunis: Phil Everly, appreciation

Remove the Everly Brothers from the lasting spectrum of contemporary pop, folk, country and especially rock ’n’ roll, and you would be left with music that would have never reached the artistic peaks it hit over the past four decades. The sounds would have bloomed and perhaps even thrived, but they would have been considerably less enriched.

In fact, considering music without the Everlys would be like viewing it without Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley or any of the other forefathers whose contributions energized the emergence of a new pop generation.
