"Phil Everly was one of my great heroes. With his brother Don, they were one of the major influences on The Beatles. When John and I first started to write songs, I was Phil and he was Don.
"Years later when I finally met Phil, I was completely starstruck and at the same time extremely impressed by his humility and gentleness of soul.
"I will always love him for giving me some of the sweetest musical memories of my life."
- Paul McCartney
