Billie Joe today wrote an article published by the Wall Street Journal, titled "The Dark Traditions of Phil Everly."
In the article, Billie Joe reflects on the life of Phil Everly and the impact he and his brother have had not only on Billie Joe specifically, but on music in general.
"They’ve influenced people already and the people they influenced don’t even know it. If you’re influenced by the early Beatles harmonies, then you’re influenced by the Everly Brothers. If you’re influenced by Simon and Garfunkel, then you’re influenced by the Everly Brothers. I think any time you hear harmony, the spirit of the Everly Brothers will live on forever."
