But the Beatles’ supremacy in the 1960s got the better of the Everly Brothers, who fell into drugs and alcohol and clash more and more often off stage. In 1973, the duo broke up in the middle of a concert in southern California, only to reform in 1983 at a concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

The brothers produced two albums in the 1980s and played a few concerts in the 1990s, but remaining strangers to each other.

“We are completely different, except when we sing together”, Don Everly told the Los Angeles Times in 1999 : “I’m a liberal Democrat, he’s pretty conservative. “
