Don and Phil, his brother who died aged 74 in 2014, had scored hits worldwide in the late 1950s and early 60s.

They became popular for their songs including ‘Bye Bye Love’ and ‘All I Have To Do Is Dream’.

The US music duo was known for their close harmonies and was credited to have influenced bands like The Beatles.

The duo had an onstage breakup in 1973, leading to a decade-long estrangement.

The Everly Brothers were elected to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in its first year, 1986.

They were also given a lifetime achievement award at the Grammys back in 1997.
