Jerry Lee Lewis Pays Tribute To Don Everly
Rock pioneer Jerry Lee Lewis has paid tribute to singer Don Everly of the Everly Brothers. “The Everly Brothers are integral to the fabric of American music,” Lewis said in a statement. “Very few of us can say we were around at the beginning, and even fewer can say we’re still here.” “With my friend Don’s passing, I am reflective… reflective on a life full of wonderful friends, spectacular music and fond memories,” Lewis continued. “There’s a lot I can say about Don, what he and Phil meant to me both as people and as musicians, but I am going to reflect today. God Bless Don Everly and long live Rock and Roll music.”
Don Everly passed away on August 21.
