He sure has, though the main sites haven't picked it up yet. Now the Neverly Brothers.

Gone Everly.

By the way, Don is survived by their mother Margaret who is 101 years old -- no one should bury their own children, but what if their children are also already way above the average life exspectancy?

 

And that leaves Jerry Lee Lewis as the last surviving founding member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Who would have thought that 30 years ago?

Great harmonies and a great legacy of groups influenced by the Everly Bros. A sad loss.

 

Now it's a scramble to wonder who the oldest living celeb with a living parent is. Possibly Chuck Norris, whose mother turned 100 earlier this year.

When I heard, the news was just going around. At first I believed it was a hoax  spoke to a few people (other musicians and concert promoters) who confirmed it

What do the Everly Bros have to do with rockabilly?  If the creator of this thread doesn’t know it’s focus maybe it should be merged.

Going by his post in the Dead Pop Stars thread, SC might be confusing the Everly Brothers with the Righteous Brothers?

So the Everly Mother is still around then? She was only 17 when Don was born, though I  guess that was nothing unusual in 1930s Kentucky.

 

Going to play a few EB tunes tonight though .. 'Let It Be Me' a particular favourite.
