Phil Everly's (The Everly Brothers) last ever interview, where he talked about Billie Joe and Norah Jones' Foreverly record, can be found on Paste.
Well, the two pieces that I have heard are just really, really sensational, really good. I heard “That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine” the other day, and they did it a little faster, and it’s really quite interesting. It’s one of my favorite songs, anyway, but it was always hard for me. On the last tour my brother and I did in England, we were doing an acoustic set in the middle of it, and we would do that one. And it’s a real hard song to sing—it just brings up that…that emotional feeling. But Billie Joe and Norah do a great job with it.

Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) wrote a piece on the passing of Phil Everly of The Everly Brothers.
The Everly Brothers’ harmonies are so immaculate. You can tell that they’re brothers and have been singing together basically since birth. They improved on the whole craft of singing harmony, and their harmonies are pretty much better than everybody’s.

Elano Pizzicarola of LA Weekly, makes the argument that Green Day never sold out, we (the fans) just all got old. Personally, I don't give a shit if a band sells out or whatever (that term stopped meaning anything to most of us years ago), as long as they're making music I like listening to. And well, it's no secret that I think the last three Green Day albums embarass the band's catalog.
They continued to flex their punk muscle even more recently. In 2009, they ripped though a live version of "American Idiot" on Good Day America before a Central Park audience. The band ignited a mosh pit and got the rollicking crowd to chant some of their profane lyrics. Green Day basically gave the...
