Hundreds of fans gathered at a memorial service for late music legend Phil Everly on Saturday (18Jan14). Around 200 people attended the service in Powderly, Kentucky to remember The Everly Brothers star following his death earlier this month (Jan14). Country musician Marty Brown was among the performers and the service also featured tribute speeches given by friends and family of the late singer. The event took place at the Merle Travis Music Center in Powderly, where the Everly Brothers performed annual charity shows between 1988 and 2001, and was held just a day before what would have been his 75th birthday on Sunday (19Jan14). Everly died on 3 January (14) aged 74 following complications linked to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
