The world has lost an angelic singer and performer who, with his brother Don, influenced many pop, country and rock and roll artists such as The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, The Byrds…even Scotland’s own Proclaimers.
It was 1983…I was lucky enough to meet Phil following the Everly Brothers Reunion Tour in Edinburgh. I met him with Albert Lee and the rest of the band. For such a legend the man was not in the slightest “starry” or aloof . He engaged me with real interest in conversation and even bought me a pint of beer!
You’ll live on in music history Phil and I’ll never forget my own special personal memory.
