The Everlys: I'm through with countin' the stars above, you were the reason....

As a kid growing up in the transistor radio era of rock music, the Everly Brothers were not the center of the universe.  Yet, they were consistently there, hit after hit, until you said, "Hey, those harmonies are really cool.  And what the hell is with that steel guitar thing?"  Funny, those things you take for granted sometimes smack you in the face when you revisit later on.  This must have been quite an evening:

CLEVELAND - The music of the Everly Brothers was celebrated by a sold out crowd Saturday night. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum honored the singers for the 19th edition of their Music Masters Series. Fans of the Everly Brothers not only filled every seat inside the State Theatre, they also filled the stage. Musicians from around the world have been influenced by the Everlys' music. This concert was their opportunity to say thank you. Stars like Graham Nash, Peter Asher, Vince Gill, Shelby Lynne, J.D. Souther, Allison Moorer, and Emmylou Harris were on hand to honor their heroes. (more)

Can you name all these guys?
