bill-medleyFrom an early age, Bill Medley had a passion for music. Listening to the albums of Ray Charles and Little Richard, this raw R&B influence would profoundly shape Medley’s musical future.

As the pioneering “blue-eyed soul” group the Righteous Brothers, Bill Medley and late partner Bobby Hatfield sang such famous hits as “(You’re My) Soul and Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody,” and “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’.”. Medley’s duet with Jennifer Warnes for the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, “(I’ve Had) the Time of My Life,” became a worldwide No.1 single and wobill-medley-book-memoirn an Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe.

Bill Medley’s story, The Time of My Life: A Righteous Brother’s Memoir, is about an immensely talented man who reached the pinnacle of fame, success, and excess until the shocking murder of his wife, Karen. In time, this tragedy helped him renew his commitment to both faith and family.

Praise for The Time of My Life:

“Bill Medley’s voice resonates to this day – and his journey through life explains the depth and soul inherent in that voice.” – Billy Joel

“I thought I knew Bill Medley, and then I read his book The Time of My Life and realized I knew the singer, but I didn’t really know the man. If you liked him before you read this book, you will love him after. It is a great read about a special man.” – Kenny Rogers
