5 Questions is a series by Steve Duffy –
Get ready to have “The Time of Your Life” as The Righteous Brothers, featuring Bill Medley with Bucky Heard, bring the legendary sound of “blue-eyed soul” to the Lynn Auditorium. The duo will take the audience through their legendary music.
SD: The Righteous Brothers music is timeless. Why do you think it is still relevant after so many years?
BM: We were very fortunate that our music ended up in movies. In the late 80’s and early 90’s, we were reintroduced to a new whole generation. It also helped that we were lucky enough to record some great songs. “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ was really the first dramatic love song for the 60’s and a hit for us.
SD: Looking back on your career, is there a recording that you’re particularly proud of?
BM: “Just Once in My Life.” It was written by Carole King and it was mine and Bobby’s favorite song.
SD: What made your chemistry work so well with Bobby Hatfield and how does it differ with Bucky Heard?
BM: Bobby and I always had a lot of fun together. We never took our fame to seriousely. Luckily for me, Bucky and I have a lot of the same chemistry. I couldn’t have planned it any better when choosing Bucky.
SD: In 2014, your autobiography “The Time of My Life,” was released. What made you decide to write your life story?
BM: After Bobby passed away, I started seeing a psychologist and he suggested that I write down my thoughts and story. Eventfully, it become a book.
SD: What can the fans expect at your show?
BM: A great Righteous Brothers show! I hate going to a show and you don’t get to hear the songs that everyone loves, so we made this show a history of the Righteous Brothers. Bucky kills it on stage. I think the fans are going to love it.
