No one could quite harmonize like Don and Phil Everly and this quite rare poster advertises a show at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado. The Everly Brothers influenced many rock groups of the 1960s and the Beatles, Beach Boys, and Simon & Garfunkel developed their early styles by performing Everly songs.
The Beatles referred to themselves as "the English Everly Brothers" when Paul McCartney and John Lennon went hitchhiking south to win a talent competition and they based the vocal arrangement of "Please Please Me" on "Cathy's Clown." Rolling Stone Keith Richards called Don Everly "one of the finest rhythm players."
Paul Simon, who worked with the pair on "Graceland," said on the day after Phil's death, "Phil and Don were the most beautiful sounding duo I ever heard. Both voices pristine and soulful. The Everlys were there at the crossroads of country and R&B. They witnessed and were part of the birth of rock and roll."
Massive hits by the Everly’s include “Bye Bye Love,” Wake Up Little Susie,” “All I Have to do is Dream,” “Bird Dog,” “When Will I Be Loved,” and “Cathy’s Clown.”
