After roughly a decade apart, Don and Phil reunited for a concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The show was broadcast and recorded for a live LP as well as a television special that aired in January of 1984. Following the success of that performance, the duo went back to the studio to record “EB ’84.” Its lead single, “On the Wings of a Nightingale,” reached the top 10 in the adult contemporary category on Billboard.
The Everly Brothers’ final charting single came just two years later in 1986. “Born Yesterday,” from their album of the same name, achieved relative success and ensured the longevity of the Everly Brothers for generations to come.
From then on, the duo worked together as well as apart on various projects and made guest appearances performing live alongside other big names in music.
Phil died on Jan. 3, 2014, from pulmonary disease, and Don died on Aug. 21, 2021, with no cause of death shared.
