Re: Phil Everly Dies

Very, very sad.
Like many budding guitarists in the 60's almost the first "tune" I perfected was "Wake Up Little Suzi" I can still see an after school class full of enthusiastic players with a young and progressive music teacher leading us with that...great fun. I still quite like to warm up the fingers to it.
We made our own music in those days, as often as not because we listened to the Everly Brothers and others like them. In these days of music "production" its difficult to appreciate just how influential the brothers were on following generations of popular music.
We saw them in concert at the Odeon Hammersmith when they were considerably older.
RIP Phil Everly 
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
