Don Everly - the last surviving member of the legendary rock 'n' roll duo The Everly Brothers - has died at the age of 84.

A family spokesperson confirmed Everly's death to the Los Angeles Times, but did not disclose the cause.

His brother Phil Everly died in 2014, at the age of 74.

The Everly Brothers had hits worldwide in the late 1950s and early 1960s, including Bye Bye Love and All I Have To Do Is Dream.

They were known for their close harmonies and influenced bands such as The Beatles.

The pair had an onstage breakup in 1973 that led to a decade-long estrangement, but Phil later told Time magazine that the brothers' relationship had survived this.

Everly died on Saturday at his home in Nashville.

"Don lived by what he felt in his heart," a statement said. "Don expressed his appreciation for the ability to live his dreams... with his soulmate and wife, Adela, and sharing the music that made him an Everly Brother."

The Everly Brothers were elected to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in its first year, 1986, and they were given a lifetime achievement award at the Grammys in 1997.

Rolling Stone magazine has described them as "the most important vocal duo in rock".
