About this product
- DescriptionBill Medley's indelible baritone adorns some of the biggest hits of the twentieth century and is prominent on the soundtrack of an entire generation. He and his musical partner, the late inimitable Bobby Hatfield, formed the Righteous Brothers in 1963 and forever changed the sound of popular music. The term blue-eyed soul was born.After the Phil Spector-produced You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' hit #1 in 1964 and Bobby Hatfield's sweeping solo vocal turn on Unchained Melody enchanted millions, the Righteous Brothers found themselves in the thick of the musical and cultural changes sweeping the nation. They toured with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, became friends with Elvis Presley and the Beach Boys, and brought rhythm and blues to the largest crossover audience it had reached to date. The Time of My Life is an affecting and vivid memoir of those times and beyond. But Medley's story isn't just about the #1 hits and the awards. It's the story of an immensely talented young guy who lived the rock star life and reached the pinnacle of fame, success, and excess, and how he was eventually able to renew his commitment to both his faith and his family.
