    The Everly Brothers' Phil Everly Dead at 74 - He died Friday, January 3

    R.I.P. to Phil Everly, one-half of The Everly Brothers duo, who were huge in the '50s. He died on Friday, January 3 at the age of 74. He had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, brought on by a lifetime of smoking.

    He is survived by his older brother and former bandmate Don, 76; wife Patti; two sons; and two granddaughters. He was rock 'n' roll legend.
