Samenvatting

From an early age, Bill Medley had a passion for music. School glee club and amateur singing contests soon gave way to the albums of Ray Charles and Little Richard. That 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 huge hits as (You're My) Soul and Inspiration," Unchained Melody," and You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," the latter recognized by BMI as the most-played song of the twentieth century. 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 on its way to winning an Oscar, a Grammy, and a Golden Globe.


But Medley's story isn't just about the hits and the awards. It's 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 eventually helped him renew his commitment to both faith and family.

Recensie(s)

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 Bill Medley writes as he sings--with a heart full of soul and inspiration. --Paul Shaffer Mojo, April 2014 [A] likeably conversational, anecdotal read. Blogcritics.org, 4/9/2014 A fast-paced read...Like other such memoirs, it should deepen reader's appreciation for the creation of some of their favorite songs. Cleveland Music Examiner, 4/8/14 In his new autobiography, The Time of My Life, singer Bill Medley comes across as an affable, down-to-earth fellow. The kind of guy you'd want to write a song with, have a beer with, and call neighbor.
