Bulgaria: Musician Phil Everly Passes Away at 74 File photo by

US musician Phil Everly, one half of the Everly Brothers, has died in California at the age of 74.

Everly died in the Los Angeles suburb of Burbank of complications from lung disease, his wife, Patti, told the Los Angeles Times.

“We are absolutely heartbroken. We fought long and hard,” she said, as cited by the BBC.

Phil Everly and his brother Don made up the Everly Brothers, one of the biggest pop acts of the 1950s and early 1960s.

They had a string of close-harmony hits including Wake Up Little Suzie, Cathy's Clown, Bye Bye Love, and All I Have To Do Is Dream.

Their career spanned five decades, although they performed separately from 1973 to 1983.
