04th January 2014Death of Phil Everly - Thoughts of Bobby Elliott
Death of Phil Everly - Thoughts of Bobby Elliott

Sad news indeed.

Without dear Phil and brother Don, The Hollies might have never happened.

Their harmonies formed the basis of The Hollies sound. As teenagers, we were huge fans.

Allan Clarke and Graham Nash, two of the original Hollies, modelled their vocal styles on the brothers.

In 1966 Hollies Clarke, Nash and Tony Hicks wrote two thirds of their album ’Two Yanks in England’.

We backed Don and Phil on some of those tracks at Decca studios in London, along with then session guitarist, Jimmy Page.

So for Allan and Graham, from being two bedraggled kids waiting for the Ev’s autographs outside the Free Trade Hall in a rainy Manchester, England; the circle was completed, and we were hanging out in London with our heroes.

    Some of the songs are written by Ray's friend Rob Davis whose success as a songwriter, includes "Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)" for Spiller in 2000, and "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" for Kylie Minogue in 2001 which was given an Ivor Novello Award for the most performed song of the year.
     
    In the Grammy Awards of 2004, Davis shared a Grammy with co-writer Dennis, and performer Minogue, for another single "Come Into My World".
