Everly Brothers Setting Off Singapore Duos Too
The Everly Brothers' duet and musical style also influenced Singapore's 60s music. Many local groups that followed the trail of these two famous brothers from Iowa, U.S. even adopted the hairstyle and used the same f-hole guitar model.
Don and Phil Everly were active from 1957 to 1973 and held the record for having the most 'Top 100' singles by any duo. "Bye Bye Love" became their first hit and together with their clean looks, perfect pitch and harmony they conquered the 60s. According to Internet Websites, they became the most successful duo in the U.S.
Their songs included, "Bird Dog", "Wake Up Little Suzie", "All I Have To Do Is Dream", "Let It Be Me", "Crying In The Rain" and "Problems".
Note: The Blue Diamonds were called The Dutch Everly Brothers.
