Tribute to Phil Everly (2014)
With Billie Joe Armstrong and Miranda Lambert
The Everly Brothers' close vocal harmonies were a crucial ingredient in early rock and roll. Their angelic blend influenced everyone from the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and Simon & Garfunkel, all the way through Billie Joe Armstrong. The Green Day front man recorded a cover album, Foreverly, with Norah Jones just prior to Phil Everly's death on January 3rd, 2014. At the 56th Grammys a month later, he performed an intimate acoustic duet alongside country star Miranda Lambert. Although the two were an unlikely pairing, their voices weaved together flawlessly on the Everlys' 1960 tune "When Will I Be Loved."
