With hits "Bye, Bye, Love," "Wake Up Little Susie," and "When Will I Be Loved" among others, The Everly Brothers' music influenced everyone from The Beatles to Simon & Garfunkel to Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. Now, the singing duo of Dylan and Zachary Zmed (sons of Grease 2 and T.J. Hooker star Adrian Zmed ) are paying tribute to Phil and Don Everly along with their band The Bird Dogs.

The Everly Brothers made pop music that was truly timeless - a blend of country-influenced rock that featured the kind of tight harmonies that only brothers can produce. The Everly Brothers made their last recording as a duo in 1998. On January 3, 2014, Phil Everly died of lung cancer - 16 days before his 75th birthday.
