Random Notes: Foreverly Yours

Rolling Stone #487 -- November 20, 1986

No, they're not glittery idols, but Phil and Don Everly deserve their star on Hollywood's fabled Walk of Fame. At the ceremony, Tom Petty paid tribute to the duo, pointing out that the Everly Brothers helped invent rock & roll. (What's more, they're still putting out good records). Elvis Costello was spotted in the crowd, and Paul and Linda McCartney sent along a congratulatory telegram. Speaking of harmonies, Tom Petty joined Elvis Costello onstage in Los Angeles that same week for encore duets of "(What's So Funny 'bout) Peace, Love and Understanding?" and "American Girl."
