Compared with many other feuding families in rock, The Everly Brothers' Don and Phil managed to keep their drama largely behind the scenes, including addictions to speed and Ritalin in the 1960s, behind-the-scenes feuds and a nervous breakdown that culminated in Phil smashing his guitar and storming off stage during a 1973 concert. Don finished the show and reportedly told the audience, "The Everly Brothers died 10 years ago." The split lasted until 1983 when the brothers reunited on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
