Phil Everly, who with his brother Don formed an influential harmony duo that touched the hearts and sparked the imaginations of many has died, He was 74.

Everly died on Friday of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at a Burbank hospital, according to his son Jason Everly.

Phil and Don Everly helped draw the blueprint of rock 'n' roll in the late 1950s and 1960s with a high harmony that captured the yearning and angst of a nation of teenage baby boomers looking for a way to express themselves beyond the simple platitudes of the pop music of the day.

The Beatles, early in their career, once referred to themselves as ``the English Everly Brothers.''

And Bob Dylan once said, ``We owe these guys everything. They started it all.''

The Everlys' hit records included the then-titilating ``Wake Up Little Susie'' and the universally identifiable ``Bye Bye Love.''
