The 74-year-old singer passed away from complications relating to his chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on Friday (January 3).
“We are absolutely heartbroken,” Phil‘s wife Patti said to the LA Times. “He fought long and hard.”
In 1997, Phil won the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award with his brother Don, who was the other singer in Everly Brothers.
In case you didn’t know, the Everly Brothers were known for their hit songs, such as “All I Have To Do Is Dream,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” and “Bye Bye Love.”
Our thoughts go out to Phil‘s friends and family during this difficult time.
