The Everly Brothers: Cathy’s Clown

Remembering Benjamin Curtis and Phil Everly, White Lies' album art, Afrika Bambaataa and more in music this week

Seemingly born to sing, brothers Phil and Don Everly began performing at an early age with their parents, a country and western act, before becoming the legendary Everly Brothers—a record-breaking, chart-topping, close-harmony duo known to influence the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Buddy Holly and countless others with their sweet melodic style. Friday, 3 January 2014, Phil passed away, marking the end of an era while leaving behind an everlasting impression on music of myriad genres. See their magic in action in “Cathy’s Clown,” performed on Dick Clark’s Saturday Night Beechnut Show in 1960.
