Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of guys who got lucky in a backseat more than once to the sound of Bill Medley?s voice ? not that there?s anything wrong with that? in the NEW new media capital of the world? St. Petersburg, Florida!
Reading Bill Medley?s autobiography, The Time of My Life: A Righteous Brother’s Memoir, I was struck by something he may find odd:
His career could have come crashing down probably a dozen times since it began 50 years, starting with his first breakup with the late Bobby Hatfield, his singing partner in the Righteous Brothers, continuing through the murder of his first wife, his career as a restaurateur, and so many songs he turned down that became monster hits for others.

But he always managed to pick up the pieces, reorganize, find a new partner or path. Whatever it took, Bill Medley was not going to be stopped… all the way to the 2003 induction of the Righteous Brothers in the Rock ?n? Roll Hall of Fame.
And, oh, the colorful characters he met ? and a few he romanced ? along the way: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, Phil Spector, Darlene Love, Connie Stevens, and Frank Sinatra, to name a few.
The Time of My Life: A Righteous Brother’s Memoir is the rare rock autobiography that reads like a genuine memoir. It won?t change your life the way Keith Richards did in his, but the authenticity of Bill Medley?s storytelling and the input and contributions of his lifelong friends will move you.
As for his new CD, Your Heart To Mine ? it?s a slow, bluesy take on songs you know but likely have never heard Bill Medley sing. My favorites? ?Rock Me Baby? and ?Hold On I?m Comin?.?
