LOS ANGELES — Phil Everly, who with his older brother, Don, made up the most revered vocal duo of the rock-music era, died Friday in Burbank, Calif., of complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife, Patti, told the Los Angeles Times. He was 74.
"We are absolutely heartbroken," she said, noting that the disease was the result of a lifetime of smoking. "He fought long and hard."
