I first came to know of your music through Top gun and then the amazing song Enchanted Melody through the movie Ghost. I fell in love with your voice it touched my heart that you'll never no. I can't listen to it without crying. I put it on repeat in iTunes and listen to it every night. Your soulful heart and subtle rifts and range were breathtaking. Your music lives on through generations. May God bless.
October 26, 2016
You are missed very much. I know your singing in GOD'S CHOIR. That Tenor voice standing out above most. You are in a great choir in heaven.
Miss you BOBBY, May GOD BLESS you .

Bobby Hatfield, was a very sweet person. I met Bobby & Bill Medley in 1965, in Baton Rouge, La. They were on tour with Nino Tempo & April Stevens. They were awesome singers. It was a heart breaking news, when I heard of Bobby's death. I have all the album's that THE RIGHTOUS BROTHERS ever made. They are a cherished position. Was a pleasure meeting him.
Unchained Melody, was an AWESOME song.
October 25, 2016
You will be sorely missed. Your voice was awesome and you sang from deep within. My one regret is that I didn't have the opportunity to see one of your concerts. Unchained melody holds deep and everlasting memories for me.
October 11, 2016
You will be missed Bobby, you had an amazing voice, I still listen to your songs on my IPhone and always will. RIP

It has been almost 13 years and it still seems like yesterday. The Righteous Brothers were a favorite of mine. I loved that tenor of Bobby's. He was one in a million. I still listen to some of their old songs.

I have loved you both since you first came out, with my little transistor radio in my year to sing me to sleep every night, from KOMA in Oklahoma City.

By the twists of fate I got to know both Bill and Bob personally.Bill had the coolest turquoise'56 Chevy with flames painted over the hood & front fenders and we each spent many summer nights crusin' South Main in Santa, in 1957-58, with me in my '57 Buick Century. We drove by Jon's Black Derby (the Brothers first real gig). We even dated the same girl. Years later we bumped into one another at a small lounge in Tustin, Calif. called Bachelor's 3 and talked about the "good old days" many times including my listening to Bob's heart-wrenching stories when he lost his wife. But Bobby I knew best. We both were in the Fremont Jr. High Band in Anaheim playing trumpet. Bob & I were the two lead players in the section. We had an ongoing rivalry because he was in 9th grade and I was only in the 8th. There I was sitting next to a legend in the making arguing about music (he loved R & B while I was a jazz player). After I transferred to another school I saw him again working as a clerk at Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland. Who would have known. When I heard of Bobby Hatfield's death I was stunned. After spending a year sitting next to a guy in band, every school day, for a year and seeing him once and awhile over the years it reminded me that we're all growing older. I'm sure both Bill and Bobby would agree with Brian Wilson's lyric (paraphrased): "Love songs, pretty girls, we drove into a movie. We never wanted it to end." None of us did. Thanks for all the laughs to both Righteous Brothers. And to Bobby. I was the best trumpet player but couldn't carry a tune in a bucket vocally. You were something else (as is Bill). And many more thanks for the countless hours of listening to your music. I came around Bobby on the R & B but kept the jazz. My best to your family, memories of your mom and much more. Joe, La Jolla, California.

Foi uma perda irreparável , eu amava vê lo cantar , sou é sempre serei sua fã incondicional !
May 22, 2015
I saw the Righteous bothers back in 2000 in Phoenix with my wife never seen two people give such a great performance, saw Bill Medley in Wendover Nevada back in 2009 grew up with the Righteous brothers in Los Angeles. No body like Bobby and Bill. R I P
May 14, 2015
Something inside me stirred me to listen to and move to "Unchained Melody".
I am 70 years old and grew up with the Righteous Brothers.

What a loss. Living is heart-breaking.

Thank you, Bobby Hatfield, for the beautiful contribution you have made to my life.
Rest in peace.
May 13, 2015

I loved the Righteous Bros. Music and their entertaining people of all races and places. I met them at the Hop in Fountain Valley years ago it was such a pleasure. I played drums myself back in the day so I can relate somewhat to what the music life can put you through good and not so good. Bill and Bobby handled it well and they will always be the best soul singers ever. I'll miss you Bobby but I have your songs and I listen to them many times over. J. Michael Stewart
February 09, 2012
I had waited 40 years to see The Righteous Brothers, whom I had adored since my early teens. I was privileged to attend one of their last concerts before the death of Bobby Hatfield. I was also honored to get their autographs on my ticket stub. Thanks, guys. THAT WAS RIGHTEOUS, BROTHERS! Luv ya, luv ya, luv ya!
February 03, 2012
Dear Bobby, Jr., Kalin, Vallyn, and Dustin: Rest assured, even with the passage of time, your father's fans and admirers have not forgotten him, and we never will. As a young child in the '60s, I grew up with the music of the Righteous Brothers, my appreciation for it deepening as I grew older and I began to understand how important and meaningful it was not only to the growth of rock'n'roll, but, more importantly, to the many lives it touched in a personal way. When "Unchained Melody" was first released I was only 5 years old and didn't understand the meaning behind the lyrics, but I knew I loved the melody and the voice singing it. Now, at age 50, the song has very special meaning for me: In 2010, I lost my husband and my father within a short period of time, and "Unchained Melody" expresses my longing and hope for eventual reunion like no other song I've ever heard. Bobby Hatfield was born to sing that song, and it gives me great comfort to hear that sweet, beautiful, and powerful voice sing "I'll be coming home, wait for me...."

Dustin and Vallyn, I know Bobby was waiting for your mother, Linda. I pray you take comfort knowing they are now together, whole and at peace. God creates families for eternity, and yours will be together again, in His time, just as Bobby is now with his parents and brothers, as well as your mother.

And to Bill, although I never had the privilege of seeing you and Bobby perform together in person, the music you made together (and separately) is an important part of my life. It takes courage for you to carry the Righteous Bros. legacy forward without him, to honor him the way that I'm told you do in your shows. He's with you on stage, in spirit. I hope you are at peace, and that the memories of your 41 years together bring you comfort and happiness. I hope to finally see your show this year, on the road or in Branson.

God speed His love to all of you.
December 13, 2011

Dear Bobby and Linda,
I honor you two today in deep appreciation for how much you have given of yourselves to others throughout your lives and touched so many people in order to make this world a better place to be. You brought us your sunshine. And now you are bringing your special brand of sunshine to Heaven itself. I pray for your family and friends every day that they will be fully restored to you forever because they all mean so much to you. God bless and keep you always in His tender care, until we are in Heaven together! It is more wonderful with you in it. Love you guys…Lynette
December 13, 2010
We still miss you after all this time. Your kindness toward others is still somehow here. love you for all you did..
December 09, 2010


Bobby was truly a one-of-kind person.
I share his and Linda's belief in God. It has been seven years and now and He sings in God's choir.
I am sure his Mom & Dad, Linda and his two brothers are in the front row for every performance. When God blesses someone with a voice like his - I am so glad he shared it with us all. "Unchained Melody" is my all-time favorite song - and nobody even comes close to Bobby's version. I trust all of his fans out there realize what a great husband he was, father and yes - a great shortstop ! I am so glad Bobby didn't sign that baseball contract and choose to sing to us fans like nobody else can. In the Kingdom of Heaven I can only imagine the Angels He sings with. Bobby Hatfield would be so very pleased and touched to know how many lives He touched here on Earth. I shall await until the Lord - "Calls Me Home." Someday Bobby, Bill and Bill's Family can reunite truly in Heaven - all enjoying God's gift of Eternal Life. Bobby you are truly missed by so many .. but one day we'll see you again .... John 3:16

Bobby.
It's hard to believe that 7 years have
passed. On friday November 5th my wife and i went to the South Point hotel and casino to see Bill Medley. Bill dedicated
the show to you and a moment of silence
in your honor.Bobby may you and Linda rest in peace. We miss you.

You are the greatest man I have ever known. For seven years now, you have been in God's Kingdom of Heaven. There, I know that you are singing with the angels, when they aren't laughing at your jokes. I will love you for all eternity! Diane formerly from Huntington Beach, CA
November 05, 2010
Precious Bobby, I haven't forgotten you today and grateful to know you, Linda and your other family are enjoying eternal bliss and happiness together in Heaven. I pray every day for everyone in your circle of loved ones..and of course for Bill and his family, that God would give all of them love and peace until some day when they will all be restored to you once again forever and ever.
With affection, Lynette

Dear Bobby and Linda
How very sad for those of us left behind.
The precious time we had with you is small compared to eternity,
I know that you both of you are at peace. To say we miss you is and understatement.
Until we meet again may God hold all of us in the palm of His hand.
Until then.........

My Dear Bobby, it is with love that I remember and honor you on Father’s Day with God in Heaven. We all know that you have been a wonderful family man and have cared deeply for each of your children and grandchildren in spite of any adverse circumstances that may have come against you in the past which sadly took you from us. At the core of your being, you have been great but now you are perfect because the mistakes and problems of the past have been completely forgiven and healed, and you have been renewed as a precious son of God who is giving Him glory. May God bless and keep you in His special care on this and every Father’s Day. May your family know for certain that they have been richly blessed to have a daddy and a granddaddy like you who has always had so much love for them and is still impacting them in positive, powerful ways. You will never be forgotten, but always loved and cherished as an important part of your family’s lives. I want you to know, Bobby, that every single day I am praying for your children on your behalf that God will move in their lives in a mighty way that makes you and Linda even more proud to be their parents. God bless you all forever! There is probably a gorgeous golf course up there that is especially for you and Linda to enjoy, so I imagine you and several others are having a blast swinging those golf clubs today!

With much love on Father’s Day, Lynette
June 16, 2010
To Beautiful Linda, who loved life in spite of your disease and who loved and continues to love Bobby so dearly and have given him many happy years...we thank you for being such an important part of his life for so long and for having many friends and family around you. We are happy you are now free of all disease and are rewarded with a wonderful place in heaven where you can enjoy eternity with Bobby and many others you come in contact with. Bobby is a dear angel and so are you! Rest in peace, sweetheart...
May 20, 2010
May 8, 2010 we saw Bill Medley perform at the Canyon Club and during his performance, he spoke about Linda and what a wonderful partner she was for Bobby. As a believer, I know they are together again in heaven and I am sure Bobby was waiting with open arms. May God bless you all.
May 17, 2010
My payers and wishes are for the Hatfield children and family at this time, Linda is now with Bobby once again.
May 14, 2010

I have been listening to the Righteous brothers for a few months and i did not know how good they sounded together but it was a very sad way for Bobby to die
April 21, 2010
When pulling out of a parking structure today flipped on the radio – Ebb Tide enveloped the car.

At first, I smiled, and then I began to think. (That always gets me in trouble)

I had to pull off to the side of the road. Big ol crocodile tears, what a mess I was. I wish you were still here.

It is impossible for me to understand the depth of the pain caused by the loss of a mate, having not had the experience.Those who live on after the death of a loved one still have much to contribute to others however. I am grateful for last year's Bobby Hatfield Classic Golf Tournament as well as the previous ones sponsored by his wife, family friend Bill Medley and other Hatfield family members.

Research shows that Bobby's family belongs to a Central Family Surname Group designated by the letters CAR* which includes former U.S. presidents from the Haye and Fitz branches, THE Current Marquess of Lothiam, and the last recipient of the Order of the Garter Award, 6th baron Peter Carrington, borne 1919, just 5 years prior to when the heavens began to rule (see the Scriptures at the Book of Daniel, chapter 7, verse 13 and the life events of Peter Carrington). Dustin et al, the heavens will soon begin to rule upon the earth.There will be Shepherds and Dukes ruling upon a happy earth. Check the list of Dukes listed under recipients of the Order of Garter on your computer.

A prayer from the Scriptures at the Book of Matthew chapter 6 which contains unlike all spiritual text books no encouargement of spiritism:

“YOU must pray, then, this way:

“‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth. Give us today our bread for this day; and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the wicked one.’

* Bobby left the legacy of his life in the surname Hauterill(of the Family Surname Group Carr), a branch of the Norman Kings of Naples and Sicily whose family head was Viking King Hialtt, C 950 A.D. Bobby's heritage particularly in the line of lord Peter Carrington is no small matter over which to brisk.

In loving memory of Bobby Lee Hatfield

I've always been totally in love with Bobby Hatfield & Bill Medley. I grew up in Redondo Bch, but not old enough to see them perform in the next town of Hermosa Bch. I finally got to meet them when they were in Colorado, at the Pikes Peak Center. Thankyou for the best music EVER!
December 25, 2009
I have repeatedly listened to Bobby Hatfield's rendition of "Unchained Melody" so many times and will never tire of it. He was indeed a beautiful, talented man. I was very sorry to learn of his passing and will never forget his wonderful voice.
November 22, 2009
Bless you Bobby Hatfield. I will always remember you and Bill Medley.We played your albums over and over again while stationed on Antartica in the mid Sixties.. You and Mr. Medley signed a set of cd's several years ago at the Hult Concert Hall in Eugene, Oregon.
Your rendition of "Un-Chained Melody is "our song" to my wife and I.
Thank you so very much.
I will never forget you and Bill and your music.

August 20, 2009
Well Bob,I have a birthday coming up in 2 days on the 22nd of August.I can remember "Little Latin Lupe Lu" in the Summer of 62.You and Bill turned that acetate into
'gold' real quick.In or around 1965,some of us Winchell kids went to Huntington or Balboa(can`t remember which but)we went grunion hunting had a couple cases of "suds",hot dogs;our girls and a bonfire,and of course a radio.As the party ended,Ebb Tide and Unchained Melody came on almost one after another and was a glorious finish to a great Summer`s night.Bill and yourself had a gift,I could never quite figure out.You two could take a song or songs from Sam Cooke,Little Richard,Ray Charles,The Platters,and a host of others,and actually make the "covers"better and more soulful then the original artists could.When I could reach your high tenor notes and falsetto,or hit those notes of Marty Robbins or Jay Black and Sam Cooke,I knew I was on,but you guys are the innovators,the main dudes,and the greatest duo in 40 years. I still hear those songs when I am far from home,and they make me homesick once more.I imagine you are singin` with one "heck"of a band.R.I.P. Lucky.

Rest in peace Bobby.The world is a little colder and I am a little bit older,but I`ll never forget you and Bill,as the "greatest" duo in Rock history'as you really inspired my musical tastes and talents.I went to John C. Fremont Junior High School in 1958 and was a pupil of Mr.Fennema,in Boy`s Glee.He was a great teacher.I graduated from A.U.H.S. in 1968 after leaving school for 3 1/2 years.I remember Curry`s ice cream,the hamburger stand at Lincoln and Lemon streets,the Fox and Garden theatres,and the Orange Drive-in.I used to drop in at "Hatfield`s"cleaners and talk to your mom around 1968,to see how you and Bill were doing?She was always gracious and sweet and very proud of you and Bill along with your achievements.I remember Joe Orr,Caryl Snow and the 'Streetsweepers'.I hung around with the Winchell`s Gang at Ball and Euclid,in the shopping center in 64, 65,and 66.I have saw you cruising in that beautiful burgundy metal-flake ,Jag XKE,whutta`ride you had Bob.The world is colder,in part,because you and the magic,Bill shared with the world,is gone now.Rest in peace,sweet prince,as many of us miss and loved ya!Thanks for the memories and the music Bob. Lucky Jackson.
August 02, 2009
Hello Bobby!Being a singer myself some years ago,you and Bill were my "soul and inspiration since "63".I graduated from A.U.H.S. and attended J.C.Fremont Jr.High in 1958.I remember your burgundy metal-flake XKE, Curry`s ice cream the hamburger joint on Lemon St. across from the High School,and thats where I first saw you with you`re high school chums and the "Streetsweepers".Man,you sure had a glorious set of pipes and I did covers of you and Bill,at many clubs,but you two were the originals,that no one could touch.I`m related to the McCoys and Hatfields by the way,and a Leo to boot.I used to talk to your Mom at Hatfield`s cleaners around 1968 to see how you and Bill were doing?She would say;"They are touring England or Europe or the U.S." and with your posters all over the front walls and counters,you knew she was as proud of you as we were.Well Brother,once in a generation,someone "shakes"music to the foundation",as did you and Medley,and you were truly "Righteous".Rest in Peace,Bobby and "keep those pipes primed" to sing for the Creator.He`ll love it,as did ourselves,His creations.'Lucky Jackson'. Winchell`s Gang,Ball&Euclid,1964-1966

Hi Bobby:
It's been a long time since you left us, but we still love you and your music. Your voice was the best and your songs: Unchained Melody and Ebb Tide, are my favorites. Nobody, and I do mean nobody, sings those songs like you. I thought you were gorgeous and sexy, and I love you and miss you...
SING YOUR SONG!

Bobby, Roy and I were thinking of you tonight, I was playing one of your CD's, can't believe it has been 5 years since you left us, what a giant hole you left in our hearts. We will miss you always,
June 19, 2008
Thank you for for so much pleasure you sent with your voice. Unchained Melody gives me bumps just thinking about it sometimes. I'll never stop- loving that song by you. You'll never be forgotten.
June 04, 2008
I recently saw the Righteous Bros on T.V. giving a show in Las Vegas 1983, They were an unbelievable singing duo whose music will continue forever. I listen to my CD of their music and wish to say "Job Well Done" Your music will forever be heard. God Bless You!
May 21, 2008
I'm not sure why I keep reading excerpts from your memorial as it makes me cry. May God be with your family to comfort them, your CD is playing on my stereo and it will remain there for a long time, You are certainly a fine addition to Gods Chorus.
April 22, 2008
I loved the music of the Righteous Brothers and the passing of Bobby is a tremendous loss to the music world. He had a beautiful voice and I get chills when I hear him sing You are My Soul and Inspiration. I am deeply sadden by the loss of a truly great singer, performer and talented artist to come out of the baby boom generation. My condolences to his family

Sincerely,

I've filled my heart with holiday cheer
And shopped for presents for loved ones this year,
The house is dressed up with garland and lights
That sparkle and shine throughout the night.

But even with all of this holiday bliss
There's some people I've lost that we terribly miss
And as Christmas Day is here
We wish that they were here.

Merry Christmas Bobby, I am sure that you are the featured vocalist in both Rock and Roll Heaven and God's Heavenly Angelic Choir. I know that makes it selfish to miss you so much here on earth. Watch over us on Christmas as only a Guardian Angel can do...

Kate... and Mikey

I DIDN'T KNOW MR. HATFIELD BUT WE DID LIVE IN VEGAS FROM 1965-1973 AND THE RIGHEOUS BROTHERS WERE MY FAVORITE SHOW TO GO SEE [SANDS LOUNGE] MANY TIMES. BOBBY WOULD STAND ON ONE END OF THE STAGE AND BILL ON THE OTHER AND WOW WHAT A PERFORMANCE. I STILL TELL PEOPLE THAT THEY WERE MY FAVORITES. BOBBY CERTAINLY DIED TOO YOUNG. MY SYMPHANY TO HIS FAMILY AND TO HIS SINGING BROTHER..BILL MEDLEY.
November 18, 2007
I loved you Bobby and REALLY MISS YOU. I hope you have found peace.
November 05, 2007
Your Big Brother sings, ...and then you think you'll chance the radio again...though the last time every song...just made you cry..
and as you touch the dial, another
tear falls..........
That's exactly how I felt,
Miss ya Bobby
November 05, 2007
It has been 4 long years and it just doesn't seem possible.
Still miss you and your voice and wit. I have been very very blessed to have known you.
Until we meet again ROCK ON!!
November 05, 2007
Dear Bobby,
It has been four years since you left. Your memory and your music will be with us alway. Our hearts go out to your family and Bill today, on the anniversary that you left them and your fans to sing at a far bigger venue. God Bless
November 05, 2007
Dearest Sweet Bobby. You are missed so very much by All of us who will always love you and your Talents:) This has been a sad day for Four years. Now, I choose to remember it as a day of Happiness because it is the day that you went home to be with our LORD,, And, you are NOW Singing in GOD'S HEAVENLY CHOIR. WHAT A CHIOR THAT IS!!!! I have met some of your Precious family and I can see that you are and will Always be an INCREDIBLE man. Their eyes beam when they speak of you. THAT is a WONDERFUL LEGACY:)
I am looking forward to the day when I can hear you and Bill sing together again. Your Voices,, Solo,, and together are unsurpassed and transcend the generations.
BLESS YOU AND YOURS:)
November 05, 2007
TO THE FAMILY OF BOBBY HATFIELD, IT HAS BEEN FOUR YEARS SINCE HE LEFT ALL OF US AND I KNOW IS HARD BUT I AM SURE HE IS LOOKING DOWN ON THIS FAMILY AND WATCHING ALL OF YOU. HIS VOICE AND LAUGHTER WILL ALSO BE IN MY MIND. TAKE CARE LINDA AND FAMILY.

It's been 4 long years sence you left us, we truley miss seeing you and hearing your beatiful music.You will always be in our thoughts and in our harts,God bless you Bobby.
If you believe in forever then life is just a one night stand
November 05, 2007
I thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
And days before that too
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
And your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake
With which I'll never part
God has you in his keeping now
I have you in my heart.

It's hard to believe it has been four years now. I can see your smile, hear your infectious laugh and watch your bright blue eyes twinkle as they did when you spoke. I feel you with me each and every single day, and I'm certain that is because of the friendship and bond that we share was so very special and so very rare. I wish that Mikey could have known you the way I did, he wasn't even a month old when God called you home to him.
Everybody needs to have that one special person who cares about you for being you without wanting to change a thing. Everybody needs to feel that anything you dream is possible, and that you can accomplish whatever you set your heart on. That person is you. I am so honored to have had the time with you that I did. You told me once all I had to do was believe. I do now, I understand- once again you were right.
You have touched so many lives. You had a nature you could not help loving, and a heart that was purer than gold. I only wish that you could have stayed with us longer. Your music will live on forever, I just wish I could hear you sing one last time, it is not the same when you aren't with us anymore, my eyes cloud with tears, but I still take joy in hearing your golden voice every day in the only way I can.
You shall be in our hearts forever. In my thoughts and my soul every day.
Miss you always,
Till we meet again.
November 03, 2007
Bobby,
Thank you for your beautiful voice and Bill's! It has been 4 years since your passing....everytime I hear Ebb Tide and Unchained Melody it brings tears to my eyes! I was fortunate to see "The Righteous Brothers" at the Circle Star in San Carlos! Smile~ My sincere condolences to your family and friends!
October 17, 2007
I went to junior high and high school with Bobby. We sang in Senior Choir together, and I taught him everything he ever knew about singing. He was in Mozart Choir, the 12 best voices in Anaheim High, and was our class president. Bobby liked people and it really made me happy when I learned he was a big star -- he was just a good guy. So long, Bobby; I'll be along shortly, and we can sing a duet of "When You Walk Through a Storm, Hold Your Head Up High..." one more time -- remember?......THE PROFESSOR
October 08, 2007
Well, he passed away almost four years now 11/5/03. I want everyone to know I have never met a better man in my life. And no one has ever influenced my life like he did. I'll love him forever and a day. I nicknamed him Laser Lips. He watches over us.
October 07, 2007
...Bobby and I were graduated from Fremont JH, Anaheim Union HS and Navy boot camp (in 1959). We were boyhood friends, who lost track of one another, in 1963. Peace, Bobby.

I was born in 1970 And was not around when Bobby and Bill were in their prime. My parents had some of your albums and I would listen to them as a child. The way your voices contrasted and complemented one another was beautiful. I wish I could have seen you in concert. I have a little 3 year old now and at night he won't sleep unless we play him your version of white cliffs of dover.
You guys were and still are great your music transcends generations and that's what great music is all about.
Thanks for your songs and your incredible voices
August 11, 2007
Bobby,
You are in our thoughts today because it's your birthday. But, you will always be in our hearts. Thank you for the beautiful music and the memories you have given us.

What a sad and terrible loss to his family and music.
July 16, 2007
God bless you in this in this time of grief.Bobby was one of a million. I loved them both.
July 03, 2007
Bobby, the golf tournament is this Monday. I think of you often and miss you. The live CD you gave me from the show at the Orleans brings a smile to me it's the closest thing to the show you, Bill and the band did after the tournaments. We still hear your music daily in our lives, but I miss your sense of humor and friendship.
June 02, 2007
I always appreciate and remember the advice you gave me in Las Vegas regarding show business Bobby. And the night down at "Fat Fingers" so many years ago. God Bless You!
May 31, 2007
It's all about your smile and sense of humor.
May 25, 2007
I've been a fan for over 40 years. I was hoping to see you and Bill in concert one last time, but it was not to be. May God bless you and your family.
May 20, 2007
altho it is some time ago now, ive just gotten to know your beautiful voice Bobby ..... maybe one day i will hear you yet ....
May 16, 2007
God Bless you Bobby, may you be in Heaven making the Blue-Eyed Soul music that we all love soo much. You and Bill have given so very much to so many of us, there is no way that "Thankyou" could ever be enough. I never missed a concert in the Phoenix area, my first concert was at the Desert Sky Pavillion, my last concert was probably at the Sundome. The music and humor could never be beat. I still hope to catch Bill this year, probably in Branson, as the concert at Casino Arizona sold out before I could get a ticket. Thankyou Bill, for going on for us. It has got to be harder than we can imaging to go on without your "LiL Brother" but you are so loved too. I know one day you will be in Rock and Roll Heaven too, and I so hope to be their First Row, listening and watching "The Best Ever".

God Bless You Both,
Nancy Skaggs

ps I will never lose "That Loving Feeling".
May 08, 2007
There are few people who can do what the two of you did in your lives. If the music in heaven if as great as yours I can't wait to get there. My Great aunt use to live next door to Bill and she always said when we drove by that's Bill's house. I always said, "they did some of the best music ever that blue eyed soul can't be beat." Rest in peace and I hope we all meet by and by.
April 23, 2007
.We finally got to see The Righteous Brothers perform in August of 2001. What an amazing performance. No one else should be allowed to sing Unchained Melody!
He will be missed forever.
April 14, 2007
May you rest in peace Bobby
April 09, 2007
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
March 19, 2007
You are thought of by me everyday of my life. No man has ever had the effect that you had on my life. I will love you forever.
March 18, 2007
God Bless You Bobby. Bobby Hatfield and my twin brother Don Thompson and I ( Bill Thompson )were in the U.S. Navy at Los Alamitos Naval Air Station in 1959. We went to Santa ana College together. Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley were good friends over 50 years. We would get together with them and Tina Turner at a club in Garden Grove,Orange, California. We sure enjoyed the music of our friends The Rightous Brothers! Thanks for all the great music and entertainment! You both were always gentlemen and had a lot of class. Your music was exceptional and it still is beautiful music! Thanks for sharing life! You are dearly missed! Your friends, Don & Bill Thompson P.S. God Bless the Hatfield and the Medley Clans.
March 13, 2007
I love you Bobby! I always will.
February 23, 2007
I made two blunders on my 1st entry of 2/13/07 I need to correct. One- for Bill's song - is Brown Eyed Woman - not Blue - Two - I mentioned a CD - I do have 3 or 4 of the RB's but I was referring to the live concert they made for their 20th anniversary at the Roxy in California and the concert is now on DVD. I beleive it is still available where they sell DVD's if you order it and the DVD is a must for RB fans.
February 23, 2007
Bobby, my friend, you are sorely missed. Thanks for the great ones.
February 19, 2007
Thanks to bobby & bill for touching our lives.
February 16, 2007
Been a fan since their beginning.
I have named my race car "Soul and Inspiration" That song came on one cold winter night in the shop while I was working on it. That song caused me to continue on.
February 13, 2007
To the family of Bobby and to Bill Medley:
Bill please record Rock and Roll Heaven again and add this tribute chorus for Bobby:
"Bobby made this song a hit,
now his legacy must be added to it.
His angle voice in rock and roll- blessed us all - you're wonderful".

My husband and I have been married over 30 years. Recently we re-discovered "Unchained Melody" "Blue Eyed Woman" and all of the Righteous Brothers hits when we bought the CD of the concert at the Roxy made in the 80's. That CD has got us through many difficult times. We sing along with Bobby and Bill and forget about the world.

To Bobby's family - I know he is honored in the R & R Hall of Fame, but Bobby could sing anything he wanted - He was the best singer to ever live and when I get to heaven, I will look him up and thank him for sharing his gift with the world.
February 13, 2007
Bobby Hatfield - a true legend of rock 'n' roll who will never be forgotten. Rock on, Bobby.
February 04, 2007
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
January 30, 2007
bobby hatfield gave me so much more than is voice and songs but gave me a career in entertaining including unchained melody people say they love me doing the high notes at the end i would never have done that version if i had never heard bobby do it.it used to be the late elvis presleys verison but when i heard bobbys version i could not beleave the high notes he hit i never thought i could ever hit those but thank god i can and at least do the song justice that bobby made is own god bless him and his family.
January 27, 2007
Bobby and Bill touched so many music lovers hearts of all ages, color, and creed. I am only 24 years old. But I remember when I first heard the Righteous Brothers, and it was nothing less than AMAZING! I wish that people my age would look at music like Bobby's and Bill's the way I feel it. When an artist like Bobby can touch your heart with one song that sends chills up and down your dody with one note, you know that a legend has been born. Especially when they are an artist 20 years before your time. I think we all have lost a great and true artist, role model, and friend. Because when Bobby sings, it feels like he is singing to you, and you can't say that about every artist. He will be terribly missed, but never forgotten.
January 12, 2007
Dear Bobby , I'm merely a fan , nobody special , but I want to thank you and Bill Medley for so many great songs & performances !
I grew up in the 60's and The
Righteous Brothers music shaped my world a great deal and still does to this very day .
I was saddend beyond belief
when you left us , but your smile , your awesome vocal talents will forever remain in my heart & soul ! I know you're up in heaven just like your song says " Rock 'n Roll Heaven " !
Bobby , Thank you with all
of my heart , your songs will remain for eternity with me !!!!!!!
January 08, 2007
Hello BobbY;

It's a terrible tragedy you're gone so suddenly and quickly but the number one song for which you'll be remembered is by far The Unchained Melody. I see your departure being much similar to that of another great singer and that is Roy Orbison. His death was very personal to me for his last concert was at the Front Row Theatre in Highland Heights which is about 10 miles from I used to live in Kirtland at that time. I forever regret I was not able to see him that night but I had no one to take with me. For two days later on Tues. Dec. 6 Roy Orbison is suddenly gone. Now you're suddently gone but may your great songs live on forever more.
November 07, 2006
Bobby, As we sat and watched the sun silently set over the ocean you always enjoyed; we raised a glass of Merlot in honor of you and smiled- TOTALLY in agreement that - yes, you were really in R and R heaven and we would all greet you once again ...bet you're keeping them smiling , too..
November 07, 2006
The pain will lessen and time will heal us, but until then.....

November 05, 2006
Bobby,
Three years ago today, you left us so unexpectedly. You are truly missed. The Righteous Brother's music will always be kept alive through technology, and we are very thankful, but it won't be quite the same. When Bill sings Unchained Melody so beautifully in his show as a tribute to you with the pictures of the two of you on the big screen, it makes the tears roll down my cheeks. It is so beautiful but I know it has to be really hard for Bill. We love you both and miss you and your wonderful voice so much. I am sure you are singing in God's choir. Love to your family and Bill.
November 03, 2006

A very sad anniversary is approaching. We all miss the wonderful shows in Vegas, etc. He was soo funny and kind to all of us as fans and THAT I will remember. We will still be close to the music as we go through our daily life ..(through the magic of cd's.) Good thoughts sent to his family- he has a son that looks so much like Bobby- that when I attended one of Bill's concerts in LV where his family attended;, I saw him , when exiting the theatre, I was taken back for a sec.
August 26, 2006
HAPPY BIRTHDAY A LITTLE LATE THIS YEAR SORRY. MISS SEEING YOU AND BILL TOGETHER. BUT YOU ARE ALWAYS IN OUR HEART'S AND PRAYS.
August 22, 2006
I never had the wonderful opportunity of seeing the Righteous Brothers in person. I grew up on their music, and Unchained Melody was played at my wedding. It is the most beautiful song ever sung and nobody has or ever will sing it like Bobby Hatfield. What a great guy he was. It was a wonderful time, sitting listening to those great 45's and dreaming about someday dancing to that beautiful music with the man of my dreams.
God Bless you, Mrs. Hatfield. My heart goes out to you, but I know the memories you have will always sustain you and you will always hear that beautiful voice in your heart.
August 10, 2006

Bobby,
Summertime has not been the same since we lost you, for 21 years, the highpoint of our summer
was witnessing your stage presence
and listening to your wonderful voice. You will never be forgotten.
Best wishes to your family as well
as to Bill and the Band.
Happy Birthday Bobby
Sweet 50 16
August 09, 2006
Hi Bobby. Well I wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday tomorrow. I will be away but didnt want to forget. It is going on 3 years since you left us. Hard to believe it has been that long. Not a day goes by that I dont hear your voice and think of all the concerts and the joy you brought us. We will see you sometime in Heaven. God is watching over Linda and the family.

The first time my wife and I got to see The Righteous Brothers in concert was at the Front Row Theatre in Cleveland,Ohio. This was after their getting back together. We sat in the front row
and my wife got to hand Bobby and Bill roses. It was the biggest thrill of her life. My memories of them grow every time I listen to them sing electronically; But nothing can ever take the warm feeling you get at a live concert.I do the karaoke thing and whenever I find a guy with a voice similar to Bobby's- We sing "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling". I sing Bill's part. Most of the time we get a full dance floor. The loss of Bobby is very hard for me because of his great and unique voice and talent. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends
July 28, 2006
July 18, 2006
My heart goes out to Linda Hatfield and the Hatfield family. It has been almost 3 years and feels like yesterday that we lost Bobby.
Bill, I just saw you in concert in Branson, you were fantastic as usual. I could have listened to your music all night. I truly believe that even though we can not see him, Bobby is and always will be with you on stage. The music of the Righteous Brothers will live forever because it is the music that NEVER goes out of style.
Linda, please keep up your endless job of raising money and awareness for the Lupus Foundation. Hopefully in our lifetime they will find a cure. I wish you well.
God Bless you all.
July 16, 2006
I've always loved your redition of a beautiful song "Summertime" I'll miss your wonderful voice. I wish I could go to one of your concerts again. See you someday Bobby and Bill.
July 15, 2006
Best duo ever in life , will be no other like them. Have seen them 11 times from the CARROSEL THEATER, MEDLEYS, last time at L.A.COUNTY FAIR GROUNDS . sob,sob

I met Bobby Hatfield & Bill Medley
At Disneylands, Tomorrowland Space Bar. Kay Bell and the Spacemen Played there. The Ralerra Brothers played Backup. Rick Ralerra had a barber Shop in Brea Ca. I met Barry and Steve Ralerra and then the Righteous brothers through Rick. At this stage of their careers they only had a few local hits, but I'll never forget them.
May 26, 2006
The "blue eyed soul" of Hatfield and Medley was AWESOME.May God keep him ever close......
May 10, 2006
I met Bobby a couple of times at his grandparent's "Hatfield's Cleaners"; and saw him coming and going (across the street and next door to McCoy Ford - tractor) at their house. Last time I saw Bobby was at Disneyland, when he did an unannounced walk-on, and sang with his back up band the Ralerra Bros; who were the house band in Tomorrowland. There are still rumors about Bobby flirting with the girls at the Beauty College down the street from the cleaners. We'll all miss him!

My husband surprised me for my birthday, Dec. 29th 2005 with tickets to Las Vegas to see Bill Medley!! Our seats were first row up against the stage. It was a wondeful, beautiful show and one I will never, ever forget.

We saw Bobby and Bill in Atlantic City before Bobby passed away and then Bill in AC doing his tribute to Bobby. Not a dry eye to be seen. They were "The Best" and there will never be anyone like them again.

I am so grateful to Bill Medley for continuing to perform and sing the songs that the Righteous Brothers gave to us. We will never forget Bobby or his beautiful voice. He is greatly missed.

I did meet Bill after the show in Las Vegas and had my picture taken with him and a CD autographed. McKenna, Bill's daughter performed with him also and she has a beautiful voice. It was great to see them perform together Bill's voice is incredible and he seems to get better and better, if that's possible. It was a night to remember, and his eyes sure are blue!!

Thank you Bill for keeping Bobby's memory alive with your songs, and for sharing your own memories with us. You made an incredible team. Hope to see you soon again.
April 27, 2006
In the 1980's we were at the "Hop" in Orange County, CA(Bobby and Bill's club) and low and behold Bobby and Bill showed up and performed, for everyone in attendance it was an awesome show as it was such an intimate setting. Will miss you Bobby and we will never forget our night at the "Hop"
April 07, 2006
My highschool sweetie and I went to see the Rightous Bros 4 times during our school years. I have since seen them 9 times in concert. We will miss Bobby.

I respect Bill Medley so much for the way he has handled his "brothers" death. We will never know again that combination of soul and depth of heart in music. There are people who will copy the words, the song, but the song is lost.
Who will write the song that expresses the pain?
March 01, 2006
I have always loved your music, however I became a fan when I saw you in concert at the Hollywood Bowl just a few short years ago. You were able to carry that "high note" and we your audience loved the moment and savored your victory. You were hilarious and I can only imagine how your dear family and friends miss your sense of humor and your loving presence. Your memory lives on...you are truly missed.

We saw Bobby and Bill at the Casino at Hampton Beach in 2003. This was our 2nd time seeing them. As they were leaving the stage, Bobby saw my 13yr old daughter and came back to shake her hand. She will never forget that and she is a lifelong fan!
February 21, 2006
Bobby Hatfield will never be forgotten and his wonderful voice and personality. My best to his family and to Bill Medley. When they had their TV show my boss at the time brought a TV into the office so I could see their show or I wouldn't work that night. I really loved them and still do love their music.
February 20, 2006
He was part of the soundtrack for the movie of our lives in the 60's. His songs evoke good memories of the times and places I remember from that era. I wish his family well and I know they are proud of him.

What a talent.Songs like A Change is
Goona Come, Somewhere,Summertime and
of course Unchained Melody show his
range has a singer and his blue eye

LOVE YOU BOBBY, AND GOD BLESS ALL YOUR FAMILY, AND TO BILL,..FOR KEEPING THE MUSIC ALIVE...WE LOVE YOU ALL!!
November 10, 2005
It's been two years but so hard to believe. I play my tape of Bobby and Bill everyday on my way to work. They were so great together, and I'm so glad that Bill is still performing and keeping wonderful memories alive. I can still picture them both together on stage, singing their hearts out, and laughing and kidding. They made such beautiful music together.

Bobby will forever be missed but will always remain in our hearts. He was one of a kind and we were so very lucky to have him.

My thoughts and prayers to Bobby's family, and my "Special Thanks" to Bill Medley for still giving us "The Righteous Brothers".

Fondly,
Marilyn

Dear Bobby

To your family, thanks again for all the years of sharing Bobby. He truly is one of a kind.
Love and miss you still, Bobby.

November 06, 2005
It was 300am, 2 years ago today when I was awakened by the TV reporting the news that Bobby had left us the night before. I truly believe that Bobby's spirit is still with us and that our wonderful memories bless him and his family. Thank you Bill for helping keep those memories alive for all of us. Thank you Linda and Vallyn for being at the concerts. It is so nice to see you and know that you are doing what Bobby would want -- continue to enjoy life with him in your heart. His fans love and appreciate you and hope that this will fill the void and comfort you. We love you.
November 05, 2005
Dearest Bobby.
You have gone to be with our LORD,,, But you remain in All the Hearts of us who Love You and Your Music. You gave us so much of yourself. The world's light is dimmer with you gone. However, I know that Heaven is shinning brighter than ever with the GLOW of your Presence.
We DREAM ON with the Incredible sounds of your voice.

YOU ARE TRULY MISSED..

Today, as every year on your birthday, I reminded the listeners of WJIM 97.5 in Lansing MI that today was Bobby's birthday. I requested Unchained Melody. The DJ asked if I wanted to hear another one of your songs because he had played Unchained Melody every day this week. I knew they had just played You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin' about an hour before so I requested Soul and Inspiration even though I cry a bucket of tears every time I hear it. We miss you. We will always love you. Our love and prayers again today to Linda and the kids. Joy and I will be in Vegas for Bill's new show. Going back there just keeps you with us --cryin' because we miss you but laughin' too at the good times we had--Thank you for it all - then, now and forever.
August 10, 2005
Happy Birthday Bobby, there has not been a day that Roy and I haven't thought of you. You are still a big part of our lives and the memories we carry of you, Bill and the rest of "the gang" we will treasure always. Our prayers are with Linda and the rest of your family, may they know peace and love. You are missed. Bambi & Roy Condie
August 10, 2005
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOBBY.
I wish you were here to celebrate YOUR Special day.You are definitely in the hearts of us who will always love and miss you.
We saw the show in Las Vegas and Your Presence was Definitely there. We could here you so clearly singing and making us laugh again.
Your Memory and Beautiful Smile remain a Hugh part of the show.
May GOD Bless your beautiful family. It has been a pleasure to meet them. They are so gracious.
BILL,,, Keep up the GREAT job and continue with the MEMORIES. WE NEED THEM,,,, AND YOU.
We will see you opening night. May GOD Bless YOU AND YOURS.
August 09, 2005
Another birthday Bobby's not here to celebrate with his family and friends, as he should be. He left much too soon. Linda, Vallyn, Dustin, Bobby Jr. and Kalin: May you all continue to find comfort in knowing that Bobby was so very loved and admired by so many people. I've seen Bill's new show once and will be there opening night in Las Vegas, and I love how he has the audience sing Bobby's part of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling." I agree with Bill - Bobby is there in spirit and very well aware, if not before then certainly now, of how loved he was and still is.
August 08, 2005
TO BOBBY HATFIELD HAPPY BIRTHDAY. IT'S ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO THAT YOUR LEFT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND FANS.BUT YOUR WONDERFUL VOICE WILL ALWAYS CARRY ON. GOD BLESS YOU.
July 18, 2005
Well, It`s been about a year and a half now since Bobby`s passing. I`ve
seen Bill perform FIVE times,SOLO, Since Nov. 5th, 03, and at each show,
I keep feeling Bobby is ON-STAGE, Just
standing back of the stage lights, like
they would always alternate doing, ready to step forward and JOIN TO
HARMONIZE. He`s NOT REALLY THERE,
But in SPIRIT, I THINK HE`LL ALWAYS
BE WITH EVERY SHOW.
GOD BLESS TO YOU BOBBY, Linda,Vallyn, ALL of YOUR FAMILY,and
to BILL and HIS ON-GOING TRIBUTE to
the MUSIC We`ve LOVED for SO MANY
YEARS!!!
July 10, 2005
Joy and I will be traveling to Columbus to see Bill too. Bobby has been in my thoughts especially in the last 5 weeks as my husband suffered his third heart attack and underwent bypass surgery. During this time, I kept thinking of how I wish Bobby could have been saved. However, it is my selfish wish because I really know God has a much greater plan for the time that Bobby spent with us here on earth. Bobby, you will always live on in our hearts. I know we will feel your presence in Columbus too. Your memory brings those who loved you together. Our prayers continue to be with Linda and your children and that the love your fans continue to show for you and your music will be comfort to them.
July 08, 2005
Hi Bobby
Just want you to know that no matter how much time goes by I still think about the great times we all had while you were performing here on earth.
Bill and the band will be coming to Columbus in a couple of weeks and I know that you will be there with him. We love you and miss you and will come to join that Heavenly choir someday.
Until we meet again.

It's hard to believe that Bobby is no longer with us, a shock to all. My husband and I were lucky to see Bobby & Bill in Atlantic City. They were so great together and I could have listened to them all night. They were "Special" together and made us laugh with their jokes.

We saw Bill Medley in Atlantic City, "alone". He was wonderful and sang his heart out. He gets better and better. His tribute to Bobby was absolutely beautiful and made me cry and everyone else.

My prayers are with Bobby's family and with Bill. They made music together as no one else could. Bobby will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
May 11, 2005
IT'S BEEN OVER A YEAR AND 6 MONTHS NOW. BUT YOUR WONDERFUL SMILE AND VOICE WILL CARRY ON. I LISTEN TO MY CD ALL THE TIME. LINDA, I PRAY FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN. MAY GOD BE WITH YOU ALWAYS.
March 11, 2005
The only reason I ever knew abt the Righteous Bros. was from attending the Anaheim Vineyard Xtn. Fellowship.
Senior Pastor, now also deceased, John Richard Wimber was the manager for a short period of time...or joined in on keyboards.
Both Bobby & Billy would drip in from time to time, esp. after John died, to check in on John's widow, a strong woman named Carol Wimber.
I used to write funny, encouraging notes to JRW while he was going thru cemo for brain tumor @ Loma Linda University Medical Center, in Loma Linda, CA.
I'd put cute stickers for his grandkids, add an encouraging scripture, or simply give him a BIG monstor hugs ( & Carol, also) when we passed each other in the halls.
At Anaheim Vyard, I started guitar lessons..vocal lessons, and later was on a Worship Team. I also now write songs myself.
May God richly bless all who read this, and America!

When I first met Bobby Hatfield was back in 1996 at the Airporter lounge in Irvine, California. I was standing at the bar when you
(Bobby Hatifield)came over to talk with Greg Topper and i spilled some red wine on your Armani jacket (by accident, of course). I said I would reimburse you and your response to me, "Don't worry this happens all the time" (with a laugh). We talked for well over ten minutes and we became friends ever since. Bobby on Behalf of the Native rock band REDBONE..The Great Spirit watches over you and your family. Your friend always and in the life after, Garin B. James Black River Entertainment

I met Bill and Bobby at a Las Vegas show about a year ago...two weeks before Bobby died. He was amazing. I talked with him for maybe 15 minutes and in those 15 minutes I had met an incredible person. He was so full of life. I will always rememer his very special funny personality. I have come to know his family and they are so strong and amazing. Vallyn, I can see so much of your dad in you, it's really neat. You're so funny and nice and have the biggest heart in the world. Dustin, you have your dads smile and good looks. :) And Linda, you're amazing and just so awesome. I love you guys. Bobby will be missed dearly but his memory lives on in all of you.
November 06, 2004
Your music will live on, my 3 year old Grandson is proof of that, he sings along with Bobby in the song Little Latin Lupe Lu and when the song is through he says "Number 2 again, please?" It's the Best of The Righteous Brothers. It stays there for him but it's there for me too. There is magic and happiness in the songs you sang, that we will listen to always. Thank you for making such a Legacy to leave with us. Thank You Bill for your strength to go on with the Show. You Truly ARE an Entertainer. Our Love And Prayers for both Families.
November 05, 2004
ONE YEAR AGO WE ALL SAID GOOBYE TO YOU. YOU ARE ALSO IN MY HEART, I STILL HEAR THAT VOICE OF YOURS EVERY DAY. SAW THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS SHOW AND CRIED WHEN BILL SANG AND YOUR PICTURES WERE SHOWN. I KNOW BILL NEEDS TO REST AND WANT'S TO BE WITH HIS FAMILY. BUT I HOPE HE DOES APPEAR AGAIN IN ATLANTIC CITY. UNTIL WE ALL MEET AGAIN. GOD BE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. GOD BLESS YOU LINDA AND YOUR CHILDREN.
November 05, 2004

Bobby has been in my thoughts since last night. I just needed to tell everyone again that he will always be with us. I'm so thankful that through the wonders of technology we get to see and hear him - to keep our memories vivid forever. We get to remember all of the best of him. To Bobby's family, my prayers are with you that you will be comforted to know that his fans will never forget. We will be at the Orleans for the final tribute shows. Bill and the Band have done a fantastic job and we are going to be lost not having a show to look forward to...we are mourning again. Our love for Bobby, Bill, the Band and the music will continue forever.
September 15, 2004
Bobby: You and Bill have always been my favorites since I first heard your records in High School in the 60's. I was lucky enough to see the Rightous Brothers perform live six times. When I was stationed overseas in 1966, I told my then "wife to be" to listen to the words of Unchained Melodies and she would know how I felt about her. We have been married 38 years and it is still "our song". God bless you for all you have given us, and God bless your family in their time of sorrow. May they take comfort in your legacy.
September 07, 2004
Bobby, you will be missed. Your voice has touched my heart and my life and you will never be forgotten. Only the good die young.
August 12, 2004
Bobby we miss you so much. Hope your 50 - 14 was a happy one for you. I promised to send $ on your birthday to the Lupus Foundation, It will have to wait until I get paid on the 27th, I've been unemployed for five months now and just started work on the 9th. I thought of you and your family all day on the 10th, I pray that Linda and your children are OK. We are planning on seeing Bill in September it will be the first time since you left us for us to see him. We keep you alive in our hearts and we will always treasure your memory. Love to you always, Bambi & Roy Condie
August 11, 2004
Dear Bobby, I just wanted to wish you a very Happy Birthday,[Aug.10th]. I sure hope you had a great party with all the great legands, You have been greatly missed, I listen to to you and Bill all the time, I can't seem to get enough of your songs. I love Unchained Melody,and You Lost that lovin feeling, They are truly the best songs ever. I was so hoping to see Bill in concert, but unfortunatly he had to cancel the shows near us, I do hope everything is okay with him. Maybe he will reschedule and I will get tickets again. We miss you both, This summer hasn't been the same without seeing you. All my thoughts and prayers are with your family and Bill Medley, Miss you so much. Lol, Marilyn
August 10, 2004
Happy Birthday, Bobby. My gift to you and your fans is to do my best to insure that your music is continuing to be heard by those who loved you and your songs. Bill and the band are out there touring with a wonderful, wonderful tribute to you. I'm trying to get your fans to the shows to see it. I miss you terribly but pray that you are having an awesome party in heaven tonight. Until we meet again I will keep your music playing and your memory alive.

Thinking and praying for all who loved him. Sincerely, Sande Sanders
August 10, 2004
A MESSAGE FROM HEAVEN

This is something I believe Bobby would like to say to all of us who will always love and remember him..

I am not so far from you
Just a little way beyond
Past the cares and past the pain
Far past my earthly bonds

When you feel you miss me most
As years go drifting by
Each memory will prove to you
That our love will never die.

For memories are but a touch
From the FATHER'S gentle hand
To heal your pain and mend your hearts
To help you understand.

That while I left you far too soon
I did not leave alone
For the FATHER sent HIS angels
To gently take me home.

Take comfort when you think of me
Keep my love alive in your heart
And with the warmth of each memory
We will never apart.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOBBY .......

Dedecated to Linda, Bobby Jr., Kalin, Vallyn, Dustin, and of course ,,,, Luke.
August 10, 2004
Dear Bobby, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Thank goodness for tapes and cd's .You may have passed to a better place but you will never be forgotten.My prayers are with your family as I know today will be difficult for them. Thanks for the memories

....These Men sang like no others....They truly touch our soul and spirit with song such as You lost that loving feeling....

But the most beautiful song ever sang in the history World of music
was Bobby singing
"Ebb Tide"...nothing matches is performance of all time! We love you Bobby and Bill...Bill bring back the flames in your heart, sing that song, your version of it! Bravo, Serge...:-)
July 20, 2004
There are 5 of us sisters. We grew up with the Righteous Brothers. We attended every show near us and traveled to see others. We have always loved you guys and your music. We all miss Bobby so very much and realize for Bill to go on will be so very difficult. But, we love you Bill and we want to continue to be able to hear you even though we will never forget Bobby. Bill,you and Bobby have been such an important part of our lives. God bless, stay well and keep singing for us.
July 19, 2004
My husband and I saw Bill's show at Belterra Casino last Saturday night. We were so moved by the outstanding performance of Bill and his tribute and remembrances of Bobby. It can't be easy to go on for him. We've seen their show in Vegas 8 or 10 times and each time we come away with precious memories of our younger years. Bill, thank you for continuing to keep the faith. May Bobby continue to be your "Soul and Inspiration"!
July 18, 2004
My best friend, of 45 years, and I attended Bill's performance at Belterra Casino last night. It was a wonderful show and I am so glad that we went.
We spent our high school years listening and loving the Righteous Bros. Such power those songs hold!
Bill, thank you for having the courage to continue on without Bobby. You did a remarkable job on Unchained Melody! May God give you the strength to continue to perform and keep Bobby's memory alive.
Our sincerest sympathy to Bobby's family, and RB band members.
July 15, 2004
My best friend and I went to see Bill last night at the Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa. The hometown crowd was there for our homegrown boy. His show was wonderful as always and his remembrances of Bobby made him alive for all of us again. We go back our entire adult life with the RB's and were privileged to see Bill still going strong.
June 14, 2004
Fell in love with the Righteous Brothers way back when. Your music is still the best. Bobby, there's nobody like you.
June 13, 2004
Truly a treasure missed. No more beautiful songs will emenate from Bobby, but nonetheless we will appreciate the gifts he has left behind for us to enjoy.
June 12, 2004
What an inspirational human-being you were Bobby! Truly, the voice of an angel. May God watch over your wife and children and forever bless your reverent self! In heaven the tide now soothes at its ebb...the melody forever unchained!
May 24, 2004
What a pair. Never again will there ever be two guys that gave every thing they had to please their fans. Five of us (all sisters) went to see these guys any time they were within 500 miles of us. We even went to Vegas and Tunica to see them. They were the high lights of our sister get togethers. We loved them then and we love them now. We will miss Bobby more than I could ever say but we will never forget him. We all got to go backstage to their dressing room and take pictures with them. These are especially precious to us now. Bill must carry the RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS name on as long as he is able. WE the fans will come. This will help keep Bobby's memory alive in our hearts. Bill, we thank you for keeping the greatest music ever going. To Dustin - Thank you and your family for sharing your Dad with us. We love him dearly and will forever be blessed by being able to share part of the Righteous Brothers life through their great music. Their music will be around when your children have children. Make sure they know what a great man your Dad was. His life time was so short but he gave so much. "BOBBY" Sing JUSTINE for the angles, they will love it. Love You Dearly, from TEXAS!!!
May 24, 2004
I WENT TO SEE THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS A CELEBRATION BY BILL MEDLEY LAST NIGHT.

THANK YOU BILL
May 21, 2004
What can i say that hasnt already been said, except "goodbye" to a fellow alumni from Ananheim high.I followed your career "Bobby" and you hit the all time high in my book. Peace to you now , and fond memories of you live with me.
May 05, 2004
Bobby,
I haven't seen Bill since your loss, and don't know what I will say to him. I just wished I'd have taken the time to talk to you the last time we saw each other, but it was late and you he and I were tired.
Take that rest that you look like you needed the last time we saw each other, and we will sit in front of Bill's mother's piano in her dining room and sing together again.
I promise to bring a hamburger from the Rendevous for you, Bill, and I, and you can eat and sing "Night Owl" at the same time, while the girls play Hearts backstage.
Love,
Steve Foote

I have been a fan since i was 13 and I am now 55. Over the years I have had the pleasure of seeing Bill & Bobby in concert many times. What an awesome duo. We as fans have been truly blessed.
I gave Bobby and Bill yellow roses at one concert and afterwards ran into Bobby and he thanked me for the rose. He was truly genuine when he said that. It just wasn't lip service. Always a gentleman.
I truly miss his laugh, his wit, his presence and of course his voice. God needed a new singer for his Heavenly choir and what a choice he made. I know that Bobby is watching over all of us and that we will meet again.
Many thanks to Bill and the band for an awesome show and tribute that they paid to Bobby.
God bless Linda, the family and all who were touched by the one and only Bobby Hatfield. We love ya Bob.

Hi Dustin,

I read what you wrote in the guest book. I am sad for you that your dad won't be physically here to see you grow up but he lives within you, and I hope you focus on carrying on his good name as you grow up and to let you know you have a very brave and wonderful mother and they both love you very much. i want to wish you and your family a Happy Easter, for this Holiday gives us all hope for eternity and especially to be with the ones we love someday.
April 06, 2004
Hi DUSTIN,
As I was reading your Beautiful entry, I could see Bobby's big precious smile.
You sound so proud of him, as you have every right to be.
You are right.It is awesome how Bobby touched ALL our hearts.He made us BELIEVE that there IS a Rock and Roll HEAVEN. I can just see him leading the Heavenly Choir up there. He definitely was a Special man. A gift sent to us from GOD.
You sound like a Special young man yourself. I know your DAD is very proud of you also.
ALways know that Bobby's fans keep you and your family in our hearts and prayers.
GOD BLESS YOU , DUSTIN
(If you have a minute, read the poem on page four. It is called,
MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN.)
Thank you so very much for sharing your feelings with us. That is so sweet of you.
April 05, 2004

I was just doing a project on the computer in the library and I decided to take a break and look up things about my dad on the internet. I came across this guest book, read most of the entries, now I'm crying, and everyone is looking at me. Oh well. I think its so awesome that my dad touched so many of your lives. Its really cool to hear all of these stories that you tell, because I can picture my dad in every single instance...making everyone around him crack up laughing...he was good to everyone, even if he didn't even know you. I only wish that I got to know him more--he left too soon--I'm only 20. I went to the the show a couple of weeks ago at The Orleans in Vegas(Bill Medley celebrates the music of the Righteous Brothers) Being the first time I've seen the show w/o my dad, I cried a good portion of the show. Bill sings Unchained Melody with a slideshow of pictures of my dad in the background. That pretty much got the whole audience crying. Bill does a really good job--I highly recommend seeing it. Bill and the band make everyone laugh just as much as in the old show. I know my dad appreciates all of your support...He would be up all night long when he was home--writing back to his fans, and sending them personalized autographed pics that they requested. He would do rough drafts for his letters because he wanted everything to be perfect--for people he didn't even know! That's the kind of guy he was. I'm sad that my dad won't be able to physically be here to watch me grow up, but I know he is watching me from Rock and Roll Heaven. Thanks for all of your comments. Me, my Mom, my sis Vallyn, my two bros-Bobby and Kalin, and the rest of my fam all appreciate it.

Hi to Bill Medley. I have watched you and Bobby sing on Shindig years ago. I love the music that you sang; especially my favorite which is You've Lost that Lovin Feelin. Keep the music alive.
March 29, 2004
Boibby hatfield wll be sorely missed by myself and my wife, I remember standing infront of a mirror @ 17 yrs old and mimicking him on "You 've lost that loving feeling." But he sings with god now and I can look foreward to hearing him once agan thru his music which will live on. Give Bill the mind to go on it wont be the same but rarely is it ever..you can't go back/

Bobby's death is so sad. I feel so bad and can only imagine how bad Bill Medley and Bobby's family members feel. When I first heard the Righteous Brothers years ago I could hardly believe my ears, Bobby sounded like an angel. No one could touch him and Bill when it came to stirring the soul. No one ever will. Thank you Bobby for all the wonderful music that will never cease to amaze me.
March 12, 2004
i loved bobby and bill and a teenager and bobby will be sorely missed. he was loved by quite a few of his fans .

To the family of Bobby Hatfield and his true brother Bill Medley: The collective genious and realistic soul of this time proven rock and roll giant will take a lifetime to realize. Many of his and Bill's musical gems have formed and outlined the soundtrack to millions of lives. Had he began and finished his career with "Unchained Melody", his contribution to the world overall would be immense. We can only be grateful for his existence and proud of his accomplishments. May God keep him and long live the Righteous Brothers. The 60's is a more interesting place to visit because of them.
February 26, 2004
I remember listening to the Righteous Brothers while attending Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa in the '60's.They had such a wonderful blend of voices and a truly unique sound. "Unchained melody" will always be on the top of my charts along with "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling". I pray for Linda's healing and for Bill and the band. May God bless you all. When we all get together in Heaven, we'll all get to sing and shout.

YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
February 21, 2004
FROM THEIR EARLY APPEARANCES AT MURRAY THE K'S NEW YORK BROOKLYN FOX EXTRAVAGANZAS DURING THE 1960'S TO BOBBY'S UNTIMELY PASSING, THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS PERFORMANCES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SYNONYMOUS WITH ULTIMATE PERFECTION! I HAD THE DISTINCT PLEASURE OF MEETING THEM AT A RECORD SIGNING IN 1965 AND AGAIN AT WESTBURY IN 2002/2003. THE PHOTOS TAKEN OF THE SHOWS AND BACKSTAGE WILL BE CHERISHED FOREVER! I'M FORTUNATE THAT I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TELL THEM BOTH THAT THEY WERE MY FAVORITE PERFORMERS.
I WANTED BILL AND BOBBY TO HAVE THIS NOTE AND THE PHOTOS THAT WERE TAKEN AT THE LAST WESTBURY PERFORMANCE. IT READS, "THE INIMITABLE DELIVERY OF YOUR LEGENDARY MASTERPIECES CONTINUES TO REVERBERATE INDELIBLY IN THE HEARTS AND SOULS OF THOSE TOUCHED BY YOUR TIMELESS LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE! YOUR MAGNIFICENTLY DISTINCTIVE DUO BLEND EPITOMIZES THE RIGHTEOUS SOUND. MAY IT LIVE ETERNALLY!" BOBBY'S INCONSOLABLE LOSS HAS BEEN FELT BY ALL THOSE WHO LOVED AND RESPECTED HIS KIND,COMPASSIONATE, HUMBLE, HUMOROUS SOUL AND UNPARALLELED TALENT! THE TREMENDOUS MUSICAL CONTRIBUTIONS CREATED BY BILL AND BOBBY WILL LIVE IN POSTERITY AND IN OUR HEARTS. BOBBY WAS ONE OF A KIND---AND A VERY KIND ONE AT THAT! THE WORLD IS A MUCH BETTER PLACE BECAUSE BOBBY HATFIELD WAS HERE. TO ALL OF HIS LOVED ONES---WE SHARE YOUR SORROW!

I can't help but grieve for Bobby, because hearing him brings back such happy memories for me. Besides all the great songs, I was lucky enough to touch his hand as he walked down the aisle in Houston a few years ago.
February 17, 2004
I am so grateful that after years of being a fan of the Righteous Brothers, my husband and I had the opportunity to see them perform at the Puyallup Fair. It was a show I will never forget. My prayers go out to Bobby's loved ones and friends. Thank you for what you have left us...the legacy of music and memories. Linda
January 27, 2004
STIL CAN'T BELIEVE WE LOSTED A GREAT PERSON. BOBBY I LISTEN TO ALL MY CD EVERY DAY. I KNOW THE MUSIC IN HEAVEN NEVER SOUNDED SO GREAT. I PRAY FOR YOUR WIFE AND CHILDREN. LINDA GET WELL SOON, FOR YOURSELF AND FOR YOUR CHILDREN. I'M SURE BOBBY IS WATCHING YOU AND PRAYING FOR YOU. UNTIL WE ALL MEET AGAIN IN ROCK AND ROLL HEAVEN.
January 22, 2004
As a former member of the Righteous Brothers band, my memories of the years spent with Bill and Bob were certainly colorful, memorable, and probably some of the best times of my life. It was an education musically, but above all, a communion of spirit and soul. Being the only woman on the tour in any other situation might have been a real tough job, but with Bill and Bob, they made you feel like part of one big family away from home, and it was a wonderful experience.
Bob was a beautiful man, a very caring and kind human being who always had a story, a joke, something to make you smile. Bob lit up a room not only with that great smile, but his wit and charm and love for the job he did made it evident to us all that he truly was having "the time of his life". I am honored to have been able to be a part of such a wonderful musical family, and will truly miss that guy, but I know he is in a better place now, and among all the greats he stood toe to toe with. I'm sure they have a hell of a band. Love you Bobby, Jeri Lynne
January 12, 2004
My wife and I were able to see Mr. Hatfield perform in San Diego a few months ago. Thanks for the great show and a lifetime of memories. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hatfield family.
January 11, 2004
By sympathy goes out to your friends and family. Any time I hear any of your songs my radio goes to from low to"blast" as I cannot hear them loud enough. My favorite being "Unchained Melody". Being you were born about 4o miles from here makes me all the more proud to say you "sang the songs I grew up with" with even more pride. Rest in peace Bobby. Heaven is really singing now.
January 11, 2004
Hatfield Family -

I'm greatly saddened by your loss! I, too, feel like I've lost a family member. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
January 10, 2004
It is with great love and appreciation that we thank you for all the joy you both have brought to our lives. The RB's have been the heart and soul of music since they first began.You have shared your talents, they have blessed the hearts and minds of so many over the years. We know for a fact we will live once again with Bobby, and all of our loved ones who have gone before us. Our heartfelt love and prayers are with all of those who mourn, may God Bless the Children ....... The RB's will always be just a song away,keep the love alive,let music heal your soul,, Love, Sallye Brackett Astle, Venice High Graduate, 1966,Venice,California .Wife and Mom of 8 children
January 10, 2004
This is to ALL of you who have loved The Righteous Brothers over the years and Still keep them in your heart.
We need to start a prayer circle for Linda Hatfield.
She is in the hospital and needs all our prayers.
Please pray that she has a full recovery. She has shared Bobby with us for many years and she deserves GOD's Blessings.
GOD Bless you Linda, and also GOD Bless the children.
Prayer Circles work. I know .
Life gives us some pretty rough challenges, But, GOD will see us through if we just ask.
January 08, 2004
My wife and myself were very honored to see Bobby and Bill at the Hampton Beach Casino in Hampton Beach,N.H. this past summer. We were even more thrilled to meet them at their hotel after the show. They could not have been any nicer or more gracious. When I congratulated Bobby on being inducted into the RRHOF, his eyes lit up. It was a long over due honor. After we talked I asked to have our picture taken with him. I couldn't wait for the pictures to come back. They have been on our refrigerator since last July. They will always remain there. God bless you Bobby.
January 07, 2004
Linda, Roy and I would like to extend our love to you and your family. I just heard that you are in the hospital, our prayers and thoughts go out to you. I made a contribution today in Bobby's name to the Lupus Foundation, hopefully soon they will find a cure. Bambi & Roy Condie

January 06, 2004
My sincere condolences to Bobby's family and to Bill and his family. I was going to see The Righteous Brothers Nov. 6 at the Soaring Eagle Casino. The Righteous Brothers have always been my favorite singers since I was a teenager. My one dream was to see them in concert. I had my ticket for 2 months and that is all I thought about. I was counting the days. But, sadly it was not to be. I hope I will get to see Bill in Michigan soon. You have countless fans here.

As an African-American Teenager growing up in the 60's, these "Blue
Eyed Soul Brothers" were my favorite group. My friends and I used to do what we called "groove" to their music endlessly. I fell in love with many a boy while slow dancing and "grooving" to Unchained Melody and when it was over, you spent hours locked alone in your room listening to You Lost That Lovin' Feeling until your parents finally threatened to smash your record player and have you committed. I know that Bobby is up in heaven and all the angels are "groovin" to the sound of that "Righteous" soulful voice. Rest In Peace Bobby.
December 27, 2003
Bobby we will all miss you. My deepest sympathy goes to the Hatfield family, Bill, and the Band. As a former Orange County Club Owner, I have many fond memories, of "hanging" with the guys. One was the Christmas Toys for Tots event, when the three of us were the bartenders, I guess you know who poured all the drinks. Bobby I raise my glass to "One Hell of a nice guy" , Chuck
December 25, 2003
I had the pleasure of knowing Bobby in 1985, as an employee of his night club, "The Hop" in Fountain Valley, California. I worked for Paula, who later married Bill. I was on the security staff and was the skydiver who parachuted into the night club's parking lot, wearing the "Billy Bob Bunny" costume. My heart goes out to Linda, Bill, Paula, and other people who were very close to Bobby. Sometimes we think certain people are immortal, and when we lose them, it is very difficult to accept. I am sure that Bobby is performing in "Rock & Roll Heaven" and we will all see him again. Gods Speed Bobby!
December 23, 2003
I am sooooooooo saddened by Bobby Hatfield's death. My prayers are with his family. The Righteous Brothers have and always will be my very favorites. Of all the music I love theirs will always remain the best. I feel that it is soooooo ironic that my Mom passed away with Cardiac Arrest also at the very same age and also in the month of Nov.......
December 23, 2003
I received this poem and it sounds like aomething Bobby would send to ALL of his family, friends, and fans ..........................
MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN ......
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below.
With tiny lights like Heaven's stars reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular!
PLEASE WIPE AWAY THAT TEAR.
I'm spending my first Christmas, with JESUS CHRIST this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear.
But the sound of music can't compare with the Christmas choir UP HERE.
I have no words to tell you of the JOY their voices bring.
For it is beyond description to hear the ANGELS sing.
I know how much you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart.
BUT, I am NOT so far away. WE REALLY AREN'T APART....
So, be happy for me, dear ones. You know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending my first Christmas with JESUS CHRIST this year.
I send you each a Special gift from my heavenly home above.
I SEND YOU EACH A MEMORY OF MY UNDYING LOVE...................
After all, Love is the gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always Most important in the stories JESUS told.
Please love and keep each other as my FATHER said to do.
For I can't count the blessings and love HE has for you.
So, have a joyous Christmas, and wipe away that tear.
REMEMBER... I'M SPENDING MY FIRST CHRISTMAS WITH .. JESUS CHRIST.... THIS YEAR.
ALL MY LOVE TO YOU ALL,
Bobby Hatfield
December 17, 2003
For as long as I can remember, I have loved the music that Bill & Bobby made. I pray for all those that loved him and that our Lord Jesus give comfort as only he can give.
December 17, 2003
Thank you so much for the beautiful music!! You are one of a kind and we are so blessed that we were able to share your life with you!! You have brought so much to so many, especially my mom and her sisters. I do believe that it was you and Bill that brought them so close together!! They enjoyed so much going to the concerts and acting like teenie boppers again!! I do pray that your family, Bill, and the band will find the strength to go on and enjoy life as you would want them to!! We will remember you and your music forever and will forever have you and yours in our hearts.
December 16, 2003
I was told long ago that if you couldn't feel music you had no soul.
Bobby Hatfield and and Bill Medley brought class, dignity and boy what soul they had together.
Bobby's clear soulful phrasing can never be duplicated. I will miss the pleasure your music brought.
December 15, 2003
The Righteous Brothers and their music will live on for all eternity. We all can only hope that our lives will have meant so much to so many people.

My sister, Edie Walker, signed this guest book and she mentioned that all of us sisters (5 in all) have spent many a time with the Righteous Brothers. We attended their first concert in Houston, TX as teenagers when they appeared in SHINDIG. I still have the original Program from the show.

We have been privileged to attend more of their concerts than I can remember. One concert that I do remember vividly was a year or so ago at the Orleans in Vegas. After the show, we asked if we could go back stage to meet 'the boys' and were invited to do so. When we arrived Bobby and Bill were so gracious to all of us. They made us feel like we were a part of their very own family.

They allowed us to take pictures with them to our hearts content. Bobby and Bill had just finished a 2 hours concert, but they never acted as though we were imposing on their personal time. They welcomed us with open arms.

This is a memory that few can speak about and a memory that my sisters and I will never ever forget. In our minds, we were teenagers again and we were in the company of our favorite entertainers. We will never forget this night, just as we will never forget the music, the powerful voices of Bobby and Bill who have shared so much with so many.

Thank you Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley for so many wonderful years of music and wonderful memories.

At one of your concerts last year in Vegas, I was there with a friend. I bought 5 copies of "The Righteous Brothers Live" for me and my 4 sisters. We can now listen to your music and enjoy your show anytime we wish.

Bobby, we miss you and it saddens our heart to know that we can never see or hear you in person to perform in concert. Edie purchased a copy of your 21st Anniversary Special DVD for each of the sisters so we will enjoy your show again and again.

Bill, our hearts are with you and we pray for your strength and courage to continue to live your life to the fullest. Bobby would have wanted this for you and your family. God be with you now and always.

Linda, we sisters thank you from the bottom of our heart for allowing us to know Bobby, just a little. We loved his wonderful humor, he beautiful smile, and his incredible voice. May God continue to bless you and your family.

To the Righteous Brothers Band... Thanks for the memories.
December 15, 2003
WOW. It has been over a month and it just gets harder to believe that you are gone, Bobby. My husband and I have gone to every concert we possibly could go to and loved each and every one of them BEGINNING IN 1962. I have four sisters. When our husbands can't get away to enjoy your concerts, they encourage us to go anyway. Because they love you like we do.Bobby, you and Bill have given us so many happy memories and happy times. We always go away feeling young and full of life. Thank you so very much for your Incredible music and Wonderful performances. You are THE VERY BEST. You are missed so much Bobby.I know it is selfish, but we wish that you were still here with us. I can't even begin to imagine how your beautiful family, friends, and Bill must be feeling. GOD Bless Them All. I prayed that you had a happy life. I am so glad that you did. Linda, you are so beautiful, and so are All of the beautiful children. I know you all must be so proud of this wonderful guy called Bobby Hatfield. I am so very thankful that he chose music instead of baseball. THANK THE LORD. Bobby and Bill were always so sweet and caring and treated their fans like we were spesial. INSTEAD, IT IS THEY WHO ARE SPECIAL. They will always be THE BEST SINGERS, PERFORMERS, AND DOWN TO EARTH PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. AND, UNCHAINED MELODY SUNG BY BOBBY HATFIELD, WILL FOREVER BE THE MOST INCREDIBLE SONG EVER PERFORMED IN HISTORY. BOBBY, I KNOW YOU ARE WITH GOD IN HEAVEN, AND I THINK IT IS OKAY THAT YOU WILL ALSO BE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS. MAY GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL AND KEEP YOU IN HIS GRACE THROUGH OUT ETERNITY.
EDIE WALKER,

My deepest condolences to the Hatfield family and to Bill Medley on the loss of his longtime friend and partner. Too many eras have been ending lately...as it's once been said, there must be one heck of a band in Heaven now....The world has lost a truly great voice and talent.
December 06, 2003
Bobby Hatfield sang the way Paul McCartney wished he could. Any song the Righteous Brothers sang was made the better by their having sung it.

"Unchained Melody" was such a masterpiece, that it has been made the anthem of passionate, undying love by being the theme song of "Ghost", twenty years after they first sang it. It was truly, "Righteous". It is immortal.

God bless you, Bobby. And God bless your family and Bill. Those of us who have listened to the Righteous Brothers, all these years, have already been blessed.
December 04, 2003
Goodbye to a wonderful singer that will live in my heart forever. My sympathy goes out to your family, Bill Medley, and your friends. You will be missed by everyone that ever listened to you sing.
December 02, 2003

The way I heard that Bobby had died was
when my "Mate" called from work. The only other call I can remember
like that was regarding the death of my Mother. My S.O. knew that I would not take this well at all.......

I never had the fortune to meet Bobby, but if I had, I would have had to asked him the only, and for
me, inevitable question: What was the day like that you recorded "Unchained Melody"? What was different about that day? Did you feel exceptional? And the
most inevitable question, " Did you know at the time that it was the most perfect song ever written and YOU were the one and only person that could translate it as it HAD to be?
I think he would have thought I was out of my mind!!!!

It's not as though I thought that much less of his other work----it's
that I was a classical concert pianist. All of my life I have--from the time I was 3, that I can remember, I have understood that music that transcends the human spirit and takes the soul of many with it is a RARE thing. There is
always good and great music---I hope.
But on that day, Bobby did the near impossible---he brought poetry, soul,musicality, romance, quest, honor-----and God's own perfection
into that room. And Bless the Imps that made it possible for it to be recorded (the Imps of Fate).

Thank you Bobby Hatfield. You gave
one woman, an over driven musical woman, not only a standard of perfection, but a place to lay my tears when life gives the heart a
real toss.........

I'll be thinking of you and thanking you for the rest of my life.

Bill-----I can't imagine your loss.
So I won't try......

To Bobby's family... thank you for
sharing him.
(I take it he was a real character!
...and them some. I won't pretend to
know your loss either.----Nope, I can't.)

To Bobby Hatfield I will always
dedicate my continued hope--- for
neverednding surf-smacking love.
(Because he's THERE everytime I care
to listen to him, he reminds me it was already within........)

The Choir of Eternity now has now
all ----and the only voice that was
lacking. Goodbye Bobby and welome
Home.

November 30, 2003
My condolenscence to Hatfield and Medley families for Bobby's loss. He will greatly be missed by all of us who grew up listening to the Righteous Brothers.

I began listening to the Righteous Brothers when I was in junior high school. My wife and I saw you both at the HOP in Lakewood when you both owned the club. That was the best performance ever we saw. You played your hearts out for over three hours. Your music has been a big part of our lives together. We were glad to at least saw both of you in Vegas at the Orleans. I introduced my daughter, 15 at the time, to your act and she got a big kick out of it. We were able to obtain seats in the middle front of the stage watched you perform for almost 2 hours. You both were absolutely awesome.

Abundio and Sandra Adriano
November 29, 2003
I will always cherish your wonderful songs that you and Bill sung together....I am a fan of the Righteous Brothers for many years. Will miss your singing very much...was hoping to see you both perform in Reno again!
November 29, 2003
My husband and I were listening to a band at one of our favorite dance spots. They announced that in memory of the late, great, Bobby Hatfield they were going to play Unchained Melody. My husband and I were in shock and very saddened to hear the news. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to see them in person four times. Most recently at a casino in Mn. At the beginning of the concert they were absolutely fantastic, and they seemed to get even better as the show progressed. The lights were down in the theater and you could see the heads bobbing around as the audience was enjoying the wonderful sounds of The Righteous Brothers. Then at the end of the concert, the lights went on and you could see the bald heads and gray hair. Our everyday cares and worries disappeared and we felt like teens again if only for a little while. To Linda and family, Bill Medley and the band, and all other Righteous fans, my heartfelt sympathy. Thank goodness they were rightfully inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame. Hopefully Bobby knew how much their music meant to us all.The Righteous Brothers music is timeless.
November 28, 2003
To Bobby's family, my heart and thoughts are with you. To Bill, if you need anything, you know where I am. I love you man!

November 28, 2003
Speaking for a family from the small town of Saco, Maine we wish to extend our sympathies to Bobby's family and friends. I am the youngest of 5 but grew up listing to the Rightoeous Brothers through my 3 older sisters. This past summer when I heard they would be at the Hampton Beach Casino I thought "what a fun time" that would be. Well let me tell you the night was magical! It is rare to have my 3 sisters AND their husbands go out for an evening together. But sitting there and watching my sisters emotions while listening to the best concert with Bobby & Bill it was a feeling from heaven! Thank you so much for the memory we will talk about the rest of our lives! I was on my way to work when I heard the sad news and I cryed. Yet I realized how blessed we were to see them in July and realize he IS in a better place but we miss him terribly. The live CD is played by myself and my sisters in our homes and cars every day! Good Bless the whole Hatfield and Medley families! As they say and I mean this: Let me know if there is ever anything we can do for you!
November 28, 2003
I too, was "On the road" when I heard the news.
I thought "Kalamazzo may be where he left, but in our hearts is where he left a permanent storehouse of joyful memories". To say "Thanks Bob" is an understatement.
To The Hatfields, The Medleys and all the band members, my condolences and prayers.
"Man! We had us a time didn't we?"

My thoughts and prayers go to the Hatfield family and Bill medley. I couldnt believe the news just like everyone else.My wife and I had reconciled in Las Vegas Oct 18,2003 saw the Blue Eyed Soul at The Orleans.What a Fantastic -Bitchen- show.Bobby was so full of life and they had Connie Stevens and Frankie Valli in the audience with us. We had been so touched with their music- since 1991- I have to admit I did-nt know too much about them-as I am only in my 30-s. I came back to LA and 2 weeks later he was gone- I felt I had to pay respect to him,his family and Bill Medley-so I went to the Memorial service-I spoke to Bill Medley in person and told him how much we enjoyed their music as Iam sure they have been told before-he was very receptive-I made it to the Memorial- as Bill says in a NICK-OF-TIME. You will greatly be missed Bobby--
November 27, 2003
I was greatly saddened to hear of the passing away of Bobby Hatfield. My mother and I saw the Righteous Brothers this past April and the show was great. I enjoy their music and I hope Bill Medley will continue the tour as a tribute to Bobby's legacy.
November 27, 2003
I sent this email to the Righteous Brothers web site on November 6, 2003:

11/06/03
I am, of course, in tears at the news from last night. The greatest duo in the history of Rock & Roll has been cut in half. God bless both of you. I am positive that Mr. Hatfield arrived promptly in Rock & Roll Heaven, with a place reserved for Mr. Medley (not anytime soon, I pray). There will always be a place in my heart for the RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS.

The greatest concerts that I have seen in my life were the FOUR with the dynamic duo. Twice in Houston, twice in Reno!

I was 12 when I heard my first RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS melody. I was with my grandfather (a 33rd degree Mason). I started to hum along with the melody, and Papa turned and said 'them's some righteous brothers, using the talent given to them'. I asked what was the name of the group and he smiled and said 'The Righteous Brothers!' I still have my original records.

I have been looking to send this since I heard that Bobby Hatfield had died. My husband & I met in 1962, and the Righteous Brothers were soon a big part of our dating life. When I turned 18 my then boyfriend (now husband) took me to a dinner club in our hometown of South Boston, called Blinstrums, to see our favorite duo the Righteous Brothers, they put on a wonderful show, and we were lucky enough to get to go back stage (my dad knew the owner) met them and get their autograph. After that my boyfriend went to Vietnam, came home and we were married, their music was a big part of wedding day, I have a picture of my husband & I dancing with the words of Unchained Melody imposed on the picture. When ever we heard that they would be coming to Boston, we made sure to make a show, I can't imagine not being able to hear them again on stage together. I want to apologize if I sound like I am rambling, but I wanted you to know how long and how much they were a part of our lives. My husband & I dated since 1962, married in 1970, we are still together , that's 40 years, almost the same amount of time as Bobby & Bill. I just felt I had to send this and please accept our condolences.

My prayers go out to Bobbys family and also to Bills family. Such a tradgey this is. Growing up with the music of the Righteous Brothers was awesome. I can remember the first time I slow danced with a boy it was to You've lost that loving feeling. What a song, so beautiful as is all their music. Bobby was born with soul in his voice and always sent chills up my spine when he would sing. When we lose someone such as Bobby and all the others that have gone before him it is like losing a part of our own family. It makes us aware that time does not stand still for anyone. My family had a personal tradgey in Feb.of this year. We lost our cousin Ty Longley, who was a member of the Great White Band, in the Warick, Rhode Island Nightclub fire. We are all mourning this loss of a young life and will until we each leave this earth to join him. We have been blessed though from this tragedy, as in Aug. of this year his girlfriend presented us with Ty's son, who is such a beautiful baby and a miracle to our family. They say something good comes out of something bad and I guess this baby is proof. So to Linda, Bobbys wife and to his children, keep your faith, keep your family together and be happy for the life you had with Bobby. There will be many reunions in heaven when the time is right. Bobby is singing with the angels and my cousin Ty is probably playing his guitar for him. What an awesome thought.
God Bless
We all love Bobby, and his music will continue to warm my heart especially now when I slow dance with my husband of 25 years to "You're My Soul and My Highest Inspiration.
Love to Linda, the children, Bill Medley and his family.

Bobby- Thanks for driving me and my drums to all your recording sessions, and for selling me my first car. We had a lot of "Righteous" memories together. Thamks for letting me be a part of it all. Butch
November 27, 2003
My condolences to the Hatfield family and Bill Medley. Their music brought me many hours of pleasure and their destinctive style will long be remembered by all. God bless the Hatfield family and Bill Medley.
November 26, 2003
I've lost that loving feeling with the passing of Bobby, but I will always hear his Unchained Melodies. Never has there been a greater pair than "The Righteous Brothers". Bill will miss him I know , but he will not be alone. We will all miss him and his wonderful voice now that he has joined Gods heavenly choir
May you rest in peace in your new heavenly home.
You will always be my
Soul and Inspiration,
Joann

Hard to get this old Jersey guy to shed a tear but sometimes they come on their own.
My memories go back to my hometown of Cherry Hill, NJ and the Latin Casino where I saw you with my girl and your new song...Soul and Inspiration.
Your songs were with me when I roamed the oceans on Nuclear Powered Attack Submarines of the United States Navy and you made them my home. You and Bill will live with me forever.



Say "YO" to Roy, Johnny and the King.
November 25, 2003
To Bill, and Bobby's family:

I was watching television when I heard about Bobby's death.
We were only a day away from seeing you at the Soaring Eagle Casino and leaving right after the show for Cleveland for my open heart surgery. We knew it was going to be a push, but for the Righteous Brothers it was worth it.
Whether it was Las Vegas, Detroit, or Interlochen, the show was fantastic. I guess God needed a true vocalist. Bill, you have many more great memories of Bobby than any of us do. Remember him as we will and the smile will return to your face.
I may have to buy another copy of your cd as it is being played very often.
Thank you for many hours of good music and laughs, the time was really 'bitchin'
November 25, 2003
We lost your lovin' feelin'.....
Miss you Bobby....

November 25, 2003
To Bobby and Bill's families, to the great musicians and crew, and of course to Bill.... I share in your grief.
Much Love,
November 24, 2003
It is so sad. We lost a great performer. We saw them every chance we had, Las Vegas (I even saw them 2x in one stay), Sandusky & Cleveland OH. No one can match their talent or showmanship. He will be sorely missed.
November 24, 2003
I stayed up to watch the 11 o'clock news Wednesday evening, Nov. 5, as I always do before I go to bed. I couldn't believe what they were saying. It couldn't be true that Bobby was dead, my heart stopped for a minute and then I just cried. I couldn't go to bed, I just sat in my chair not wanting to believe it was true. I finally went to bed at 3:30 in the morning and woke up my husband and told him. He was as shocked as I was and told me he was so sad and depressed (especially since he is 60-11), he wished I hadn't told him until the morning. I'm only 52, but can hardley wait until I can say I'm 50-12. My husband and I had just seen those blue eyed boys in Laughlin, NV on Oct. 11 and enjoyed the show so much. It gives me goose bumps to think about it. The show brought back a lot of memories of growing up, as I was 11 when I first heard their music and watched them on Shindig. I was a rock and roll fan at a very young age and my mom always bought me their 45's. Their show at the Flamingo Hilton in Laughlin was sooo fabulous, we laughed and sang right along with them. We purchased their CD that evening and I have played it so much, my husband says I'm going to wear it out. I've kind of picked back up on using the word "bitchin" as you made me remember so much of my high school days. I even had made reservations to take my mom to see them in Las Vegas on Nov. 20 while I was there for a business seminar. But, sadly that did not come to be. I can't stop playing their songs and crying when Bobby sings Unchained Melody. We will truly miss you Bobby, but apparently God needed you with him more than he thought we did. My condolences go out to your family, Bill Medley, band and friends. You will truly be missed and that angelic voice of yours. And Bill will truly miss you calling him "Big Boy" and you hitting that high note and blanking out. Sing your heart out in heaven Bobby, loud enough so we can hear you down here. Peace be with you. With much love, Diane

My wife Cathy and I still can't believe Bobby is silenced! Just today we went to Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia and played a tape on the way down the turnpike. Then Unchained Melodies came on the radio and tears came to our eyes! You see, the tape was still in the car from when we listened to it on the way to see Bobby and Bill in Reading in July. "Unchained Melodies" has always been our favorite song since it was first released when I was in high school. I still remember my high school music teacher saying that the Righteous Brothers are the greatest musicians ever...and he was right! That song followed me all through life, even when I was in the Marine Corps in Viet-nam. Even though I have known my wife since she was thirteen, she went her way and I went mine. Our paths crossed again and we went to see the Righteous Brothers in Valley Forge in October of 1994. The show was cancelled from earlier in the year as that is when Bobby did his lupus fundraiser. So, I had written to Valley Forge and never heard back from them but when we went to see the show, I proposed to Cathy while Bobby sung Unchained Meleodies...he acknowledged the proposal and in front of the whole audience asked me what her answer was and when I said she said "yes", the whole place went into applause for us! We were then fortunate enough to get to meet both Bobby and Bill after the show and someone with the group took pictures of us together, which we will cherish for the rest of our lives. It was neat because Bobby and Bill took the time out for us. We were subsequently married in Hawaii that December and we had a video made of the wedding. Dubbed in at the end of the ceremony is of course, "Unchained Melodies"!
Bobby and his family are in our prayers and of course so is Bill and his family, the group and everyone associated with the greatest musical performers we have ever known! May God bless!
November 23, 2003
I just can't believe this has happened.

I just found out and I am just sick!!!!

Another part of my childhood is now gone. I know we don't really know this person because we have never met but his(their)music was and is a big part of my life.

Thank goodness he and Bill were on PBS and we have that performance to enjoy time and time again.

I wish to convey my Heartfelt Sympathy with his family and Mr. Medley.
November 23, 2003
dear hatfield family, bill, band, and crew, our heartfelt sympathy to you all. we have loved bobby and bill since we were in our teens. we will miss bobby very much. all of you are in our thoughts and prayers, and in our hearts. phyllis and joseph budeshefsky pbudeshefsky@yahoo.com
November 22, 2003
Trust me, I will never lose that lovin’ feeling for The Righteous Brothers. Rest in Peace, Mr. Hatfield.

Rest eternal grant to Bobby Hatfield, O Lord:

And let light perpetual shine upon him.

May his soul, and the souls of all the departed,

Through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
November 22, 2003
My heart was truly broken when Bobby died. There is definitely a Rock and Roll Heaven. The Righteous Brothers was so much of my teenage years and their music was the bright shining light of a time that was dark for me. I wish I could have said thank you. But I think they knew what an "Inspiration" they were since that wonderful music has transended generations. Their music has been in so many movies and each time I hear their songs, I still smile. Thanks for the music and the memories.
November 21, 2003
"If you believe in forever...then life is just a one night stand. If there's a rock and roll heaven...we'll you know they've gotta hell of a band." We'll miss you, Bobby! God bless his family, friends and partner, Bill Medley.
November 21, 2003
I first listened to his singing and the Righteous Brothers from their beginning back in the mid-sixties.
Every girl that meant something or romance that ended had me listening to one song. In planning any special event I would always think of the one song. The one song was to be playing in the background during a proposal and was to be the wedding song. It was the finest singing I have ever heard, and the best song ever recorded. It was "Unchained Melody" .... and it was perfection.
November 20, 2003
What can I say? I am less than a month older than Bobby. I fell in love with them, on their very first record..and have been a lifelong fan since. I was lucky enough, THANK GOD, to see the Righteous Brothers at the Orleans in Vegas on Oct 19, for the first, and sadly, the last time! I had 3rd row seats...on Bobbys side of the stage.The band was awesome, Bobby and Bill not only sang to perfection, but they were FUNNY!! Bobby had such a rubbery, expressive face. I laughed and loved EVERY second of the show. Thank God I bought the CD. After hearing of Bobbys passing, I had to wait a few days to play that CD. When I did, I cried...because it was just like their show...I could see them laughing and teasing. My deepest sympathies to Bobbys family, Bill Medly (his soul brother), that AWESOME band, and everyone else connected to the BEST DUO in Rock and Roll History. The Lord is listening to Bobbys beautiful tenor voice and smiling thru moist eyes. Thank you Righteous Brothers, thank you Bobby, may God give your family and friends the strength to carry on. and Bill? Bobby would want you to carry on....your beautiful voice should be shared with the world...Righteous Brothes fans will NEED you....soft hugs and much love from a grateful but saddened fan.
November 20, 2003
Both Ken and I send our thoughts and prayers to Bobby's family and of course to our friend Bill.
November 19, 2003
Writing this message is very difficult for me. I know in reality Bobby is gone but it is still very hard to believe. Right next to my computer, I have photographs that were taken during a concert in 1965 at the Brooklyn Fox Theatre, (a Murray the K production)and other photos taken when I was lucky enough to become friends with Carol Marburger, who invited me visit with Bill and Bobby after one of their concerts in NYC. Some of these photos are black and white, others in color. The other photos I'm looking at now were taken at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in October, 1997. Carol and I hadn't seen them in over 15 years together since she still lives in NYC and I have lived in Phoenix for 23 years. Their music brought us together 38 years ago when I joined their fan club after seeing an ad in Teen Magazine. I was living in North Carolina at the time and never in my wildest dreams would I believe that someday I would not only meet the Righteous Brothers, but I would become friends with them. I credit their music and their incredible personalities and kindness towards their fans for giving me a life long friendship with Carol. Those early days seeing them during their concerts and afterwards, with the help of their wonderful manager at the time, Mike Patterson, will always be remembered as some of the best times in my life. I have attended many concerts throughout the years and their talent has never waivered. And I also appreciate Tim Lee, who allowed Carol and me to continue to spend some time with Bill and Bobby after concerts. I am so happy I saw them here in Phoenix recently but very sad that I didn't speak with Tim about seeing them after the concert. My husband and I enjoyed the concert immensely and I thought Bobby's performance was particularly outstanding. Carol and I had plans to see them at the Orleans next year. We were so looking forward to visiting with them again. My heart is broken for Linda, and I will cherish meeting her the last time Carol and I were in Las Vegas together; and for Bill who has spent the past 40 years with Bobby making beautiful music. We all have lost one of the sweetest voices for all time. I am grateful for the those times Bobby posed for photos with Carol and me and for the time he spent just chatting with us about our lives and families. I know Bobby is leading that band in Rock and Roll Heaven. It is just way too soon; he will be missed so much. Thank you Bobby for the contribution you made to music world.
November 19, 2003
Thank you Bobby...and of course Bill, for the songs, the music, and about forty years of great memories. I was lucky enough to see every concert at the Hampton Beach Casino for the past 23 years, including this year's show. Unfortunately, as it turns out, buying your live CD was the right thing to do. Unfortunately because it will be the last CD.

My thoughts are with the Hatfields, as well as Bill and his family. The world has truely lost a great artist.
November 19, 2003
11/19 Two weeks ago at this time I was all excited about going on my Annual R.B.R.(Righteous Brothers Rejuvenation) in Toledo, that was before I heard the Sad & Shocking news of Bobby's death. This would have been the 6th time seeing Bobby & Bill in concert, my friend & I had 2nd row seats & in honor of Their induction into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame, I had planned to present them with base ball caps that I had made special for them. I would still Love to pressent the caps to Bill & Bobby's wife Linda. Their music captivated me back when everyone was wild about the British groups...it's taken me 40 years to figure out their magnetism aside from their GREAT LOOKS: They sang their songs TO you NOT at you * They didn't have to keep your attention by shaking their bodies at you * They sang to the high & low of B-flat (which is between the brow & crown Chakra, between your conscious & unconscious mind) & when this middle aged (teenager for a night)
fan hunted them down after the concert, They didn't turn me away, BUT welcomed me like an old friend. Those memories of Bobby & Bill will be Cherished Forever.
I would also like to Thank Tim Lee (The man of Few words) for taking the time to answer my E-mails to the guys over the years. The Righteous Brothers live on the airways of time singing to a new generation, But they will also live on in the Hearts of those who Loved them from the start. My Prayers, Thoughts & Love go out to you Bill & to Bobby's Wife & Family. May you find Peace & Comfort knowing that Bobby has become part of Rock 'n Roll Heaven...Yet his voice here on Earth lives on.
Love & Prayers, Bobbi Silvey
November 18, 2003
My deepest sympathy to Linda Hatfield, Their Family and to Bill Medley. This is one of the few times I've cried to hear of the passing of a star. Besides being a longtime fan, I had had the pleasure of serving Bobby and his wife a few times in a Newport Beach restaurant. They were sweet and humble people who seemed surprised that a younger fan would recognize him so readily. At the time, perhaps they didn't realize how many people they touched, the different generations they crossed, and how timeless they are. Of course, that was a few years before they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Thank the Lord above that occured before we lost Bobby. I pray that his family and partner find comfort in the love of his fans and strength in their love for each other and for Bobby. God Bless.
November 18, 2003
Dear Bobbi...it was a pleasure to hear you and to see you and Bill in Chicago,some years ago...37 pages of tribue can really say it all, but I guess you are now in The rock and Roll Heaven and we will never lose that lovin fealin for you and Bill. All of your fans mourn the passing' we will see you again in our thoughts,minds of music,videos' and of course when we see you again...Dennis
November 18, 2003
I was so sad to hear of Bobby Hatfield's passing. I always set my
clock radio to wake me up with 50/60's music each day. Well, I woke up to Unchained Melody and was
smiling, then the DJ said,"We will be playing all the Righteous Bros.
songs this morning in honor of Bobby Hatfield who died last night."I just yelled," No" at the radio and started to cry. My husband and I saw Bill Medley in concert by himself in Laughlin,NV. a few years ago,"I
said he was fantastic and we need to see the both of them now." I am so sorry that we didn't see Bobby.
My deepest sympathy to his wife, children, family and Bill. He will be greatly missed by all. Thank you
for all those wonderful songs. God Bless You.
November 18, 2003
Farewell to a great singer. His version of Unchained Melody is probably my favorite vocal of all time.
November 18, 2003
Bobby was such a good person to his fans. He made you feel like he was so glad you came to see and enjoy his wonderfull voice he well be missed but here for ever in our hearts all we have to do is put a record on God be with his family they are in my prayers
November 18, 2003
It is hard to think that the Righteous Brothers are no longer together. In 1964, i can still see myself slow dancing to "You Lost that Loving Feeling". It is one of those songs that propels you back to that moment in time when you remember it the most. Bobby Hatfield has etched his way into music history, something i am sure he was proud of. Thanks Bobby for all those memories.
November 18, 2003
WE JUST HEARD ABOUT FRIEND, BOBBY AND ARE DEEPLY SADDENED BY THIS LOSS AND WE FEEL NUMB! OUR PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS ARE WITH EVERYONE-- BOBBY'S WIFE AND FAMILY, THE BAND AND ESPECIALLY BILL AT THE THIS TIME. WE FEEL THEIR PAIN AND SORROW. BUT BOBBY IS IN "ROCK AND ROLL HEAVEN" NOW AND IS PROBABLY LEADING THE SHOW. WE DANCE SO MUCH TO ALL OF THEIR SONGS-BOTH SLOW AND FAST. WE HAVE TONS OF MEMORIES TO HOLD ON TO INCLUDING OUR AUTOGRAPHED TICKETS FROM THE LAST CONCERT WE ATTENDED. WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS OUR SYMPATHY AND FEELINGS NOW. WE ARE IN SHOCK AND JUST WANT TO EXPRESS OUR CONDOLENCES. THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN OUR HEARTS WITH THEIR SONGS, ESPECIALY "UNCHAINED MELODY" AND BOTH OF THEM WILL REMAIN IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER AS FABULOUS PERFORMERS. WE PLANNED OUR TRIPS TO LAS VEGAS AROUND THEIR SHOWS AT THE ORLEANS. HAVE SEEN THEM NUMEROUS TIMES AND OUR FRONT ROW SEATS AT THE HILTON IN VEGAS 2002 WAS THE ULTIMATE!!! WE WERE PLANNING MORE TRIPS AROUND THEIR TOUR CALENDAR AND IT CAME TO A HALT WITH THIS UNFORTUNATE LOSS. IT IS BEYOND BELIEF. THINGS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME, JUST THE MEMORIES AND LOVE, WHICH LAST FOREVER, THAT BOTH BOBBY AND BILL BROUGHT TO THEIR FANS. WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER BOBBY'S SHUFFLING AND DANCING AND HIS FUNNY VOICE WHEN BILL AND BOBBY WOULD GOOF AROUND DURING THEIR SHOW. BOBBY WILL SURELY BE MISSED. HIS BIRTHDAY IS THE SAME AS OUR SON'S, SUCH A CONNECTION AND BIT MORE-- BEING BORN IN OUR STATE IN BEAVER DAM WHICH IS SO CLOSE TO OUR HOME. THEY BROUGHT US CLOSER DURING A DIFFICULT TIME IN OUR LIVES TOGETHER AFTER 32 YEARS. WE CAN RELATE CLOSELY TO THE NEWSPAPER ARTICLES WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS GOT STARTED AND GOT THEIR NAME. MY HUSBAND IS A FORMER MARINE AND BILL AND BOBBY ARE RIGHTEOUS TO THE MAX!!!!
November 17, 2003
We have been fans it seems like forever. We have been to three shows and loved ever min. of the shows. Will miss seeing them together again.
November 17, 2003
I would just like to send love and to tell Bill and the family of Bobby that I was in love with the Righteous Brothers in 1963/64, and still am. Bill and Bobby made my weekends at the Jaycee Hall in Phoenix, AZ way back then, and I last saw them at the Anaheim Center after I moved to L.A. (Bill saw me in the crowd and yelled - "hey, I know you!" I said "you sure do". Remembering 'when' has been a treasure for me all these years, and will continue to be in my best memories ever. I wanted to get my original albums from back then signed by both of you at the planned Reno concert on 11/14/03...not to be. Maybe I can get yours next time you are here, Bill. Love and Peace.
November 17, 2003
We were deeply saddened to hear of Bobby Hatfields passing. Our hearts go out to his family and partner, Bill Medley.

One of our most favorite memories was seeing the Righteous Brothers perform live, once in Reno, Nevada & another time in California. We have always listened to their music, and seeing them live was so special. We were mesmerized by their beautiful harmony and songs filled with such emotion. We never wanted the evening to end.

There will never be another duo like the Righteous Brothers.

Gone way too soon indeed, but never forgotten!
November 16, 2003
The Righteous Brothers have truly been a part of my life, having seen them live in the summer of '65 at the Hollywood Bowl, when they opened for some group from England. Went to see them everytime they came to the Chicago area for the last 35yrs. So glad I got a chance to meet them after a recent show at the Star Plaza in Indiana. Sat with Bobby, Barry Rillera and a few other band members. Great time! Thanks for all the memories, Bobby.
November 15, 2003
I have been a fan of the Righteous Brothers from the early sixties. I have all of their albums, and now CD's. I was privileged to see them perform twice at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis. My companion those evenings was my thirty-something son who was raised on blue-eyed soul. He knew the words to the songs as well they did. I was amazed at the sense of humor Bobby had. I laughed until I cried. Unchained Melody is my all time favorite song, followed closely by You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling. Some of their other songs, less heard, like The Other Side of Goodbye, Stand-by, all great songs. I am sooo sad the world has lost such a talented, awesome man, but, I believe in forever and now there is one more angel in that "hellva band"! My prayers to Bobby's family, his band, and his dear friend and partner Bill Medley. He will be greatly missed but the songs of the Righteous Brothers will play on and on. God Bless.
November 15, 2003
Had the honor to meet him once and go to a concert. Will be missed a lot of fans. My sympathy to the family.
November 15, 2003
November 15, 2003
We want to express our deepest sympathies and prayers to the family of Bobby Hatfield, his partner Bill Medley the band and families. We have lost a great singer but Heaven has a new singing Angel.
We have been lucky to see the Righeous Brothers in concert several times and truly enjoyed ourselves every time. In November 2002 me saw them as they were leaving the Theatre after their concert. We asked if we could have our pictures taken with them. Bobby opened his arms wide and said "come on, come on, step into my office". Bobby and Bill were so patient with us even thought it was cold and they weren't dressed for it. We just fell in love with them.
We were hoping to see them this year and have our pictures with them signed. We were thrilled when we found out that they were coming back to Michigan and got tickets for two concerts.
It broke our hearts to hear of Bobby's passing, it's still hard to believe. Bobby will be truly missed but our memories and his songs will always be in our hearts. The Righteous Brothers music will live on forever.
Love and prayers to all.
Anna, Jen & Pat

We have lost a member of the family. The Righteous Brothers have been part of my family for as long as I can remember. The first single record "45" I ever owned was You've Lost That Lovin Feeling--I still have it and their first album in a box in the garage! My mom and I saw them 3 months ago at Humphreys in San Diego. It was the seventh time I had seen them, but the first time for my mom. As always, the concert was GREAT!! To Bill Medley and Bobby's family, I am so sorry for your loss. Bobby, you will be greatly missed and your music will live on forever.
November 15, 2003
Our loss is Rock n Roll heaven's gain.

I loved his solo mega-hit so much that I sang Bobby's unmatched "Unchained Melody" to my bride during our wedding ceremony. Needless to say, NO ONE can do that song except Bobby. Just the same, my bride and the crowd cried at Bobby's memorable words.

I traveled across the country a number of times to see the boys, and often got front row seats. I considered myself a groupie to the RBs.

My sincere condolences to Bobby's family, the band, and the wonderful Mr. Bill Medley. May God strengthen each of you and help you find peace in the days to come.

Bobby (and Bill), thanks for a lifetime of the best songs ever made.
November 14, 2003
I have to offer our greatest sympathy and condolences to the Hatfield family, friends and band. Although it was one of our darkest days when we heard Bobby had died, I am sure that it is no comparision to the sadness that enveloped his immediate network.

The Righteous Brothers are part of our legacey. We listened to them while in high school, and loved the music so much that we decided to include it in our wedding and reception.
We have all of their eight tracks, 45's, albums, CD's from as early as 1963.
Although we are not really considered "groupies" Robert and I have seen the Righteous Brothers in concert 20 times. Our greatest thrill is when they came to our home town, Kingston, NY. This town will never be the same!

I am so glad that Bobby lived long enough to come to our town and fullifill our dreams.

We want to thank Tim Lee of the Righteous Brothers for being the link to keep us connected, posted and up to date on what, where and when. Busy as he was, he always took time to answer our emails.

May God Bless all of those close to Bobby. We will miss him terribly, and I am sure those close to him will hurt for a long time.

We are hoping that Bill Medley will go on in Bobby's memory, Bobby would have wanted it that way.

He can count on his Kingston fan club to follow him within a three state radius.

Julie and Robert Elliott

This is so hard to write. The Righteous Brothers were with me during my army days during Nam up to bringing my son to concerts which he now does the video work on. They have been such a part of our lives. Bobby died while I was in Mexico. I had the TV on all night in my room tuned to CNN. I woke for some reason at about 2AM and the story aired as I awakened. I tried to clear my head and say it was a bad dream. But it wasn't. I did not sleep well the rest of the night and dreaded telling my wife in the morning. God bless you Bobby and may he note all the warmth and love you gave to us. Amen.
November 14, 2003
My husband, Harry Gray, was on the crew on the night Bobby started his new journey. We will both miss your sense of humor and the love you brought to everyone.
November 14, 2003
After reading the Boston Globe very early on the morning of 11-6-03, my husband called me to tell me the sad news about Bobby's death. Similar in age to Bobby, we are 50-12! We are both very sad and will miss seeing him and Bill perform together. Wherever they were on the east coast, we made it to their concert. We are remembering the teriffic band and of-course, Bill. We hope you are doing okay. I am thrilled that we were able to take several pictures of them performing at the Hampton Beach Casino-we will treasure them forever. All of their music is "our song" not just one.
Sincerely,
Bob and Elaine O'Connor

My husband and I were deeply saddened at the news of Bobby's death. We have been fans since the sixties. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and to Bill. The love and comraderie the two shared was evident in their performances. We had the pleasure of enjoying their music at the many concerts they performed in Massachusetts. We will always have their music in our hearts and homes. God bless you.
November 14, 2003
My heart goes out to the hatfield family.
I must say I was really crushed when I heard of Bobby's passing.
Having grown up on their music and seeing a few of their appearances, I have to say they were my favorite singing group. Especially Bobby with his unique sound that very few had. I never got tired of hearing him sing.

I know it will be difficult to listen to any of their songs now without shedding a tear or two.
I loved Bobby Hatfield. He was such a great guy and will be missed very much!
May God bless Bobby and his family.
November 14, 2003
Few groups truly have a lasting sound. A few years back, my husband and I saw you perform in Vegas. I remember being so close to the both of you that I felt like you were singing just to me. I could close my eyes and be brought back to the days of the am radio. So many great memories. Such a thrill to see you in person. I am gratefull for all the wonderful music you both brought into my life. Your songs will always be with us. My deepest regards to you & your families on this sad occassion.
November 13, 2003
God be with the Hatfield family and Bill Medley.
We have lost a wonderful person who touched millions of people throughout his life. I know in my heart he is singing to the angles and will forever be in my heart.
We love you Bobby!

My girlfriends and I were just in Las Vegas to see you at the Orleans. It was my friend Linda Tyler's birthday. The show was fabulous!!! I've seen the Righteous Brothers perform now about five times and what great shows they all were. After the show in Vegas, I asked for a signed CD that we bought after the show and Flo (God bless her) took all five of our CD jackets back and got them signed by both. I will so treasure it. My heart goes out to the Hatfield family and the Medley family. I too would like Bill Medley to carry on for all of us. I can't get him out of my mind because of the sadness he has to be going through and hope he will be okay. We all love and appreciate your sharing your husbands and fathers with us. What memories they both have given.
Much love and you're in my prayers. It's as if he was one of our own family. Vikki Magness

What a sad day for us. We grew up listening to Righteous Bros in the sixty's. We were fortunate to hear them twice in Vegas last year and again in June of this year. Our deepest sympathy to Bobby's family and friends espically Bill.
November 13, 2003
I first saw the Righteous Brothers when they performed at Seina College back in the 60's. I last saw them at the Turning Stone Casino in July of 2003. They never changed. They were as great this summer as they were 40 years ago.
I will always treasure their music.
Bobby was one of a kind. My prayers to all his family and to his brother Bill.

My wife, a fan since her teens, suffered a stroke at age 39 in 1992. In 1993, I took her to see the Righteous Bros. in Las Vegas. During and after seeing the show, it was the 1st time since her tragedy that she could smile again. She really "turned the corner" after that. "Blue-Eyed Soul" was very instrumental in her healing process.
November 13, 2003
It is just over 1 week since you departed and I still cry when I hear your songs. It's still so hard to comprehend that you are gone. You will always live on in my heart and my memories. Again my condolences to the Hatfield family in their loss. Thank you so very much for sharing Bobby with all of us who,too will truly miss this great man. Hugs and prayers to the Hatfields, Bill Medley and family and also to his "band family" Sleep peacefully with the angels Bobby.Love you always Claudia Whitehead Cleveland Ohio
November 13, 2003
The Righteous Brothers performance in Jacksonville Florida was the best show we have ever seen, thank you for the wonderful memories, we have been fans since the early Moonglow recordings. As a fellow entertainer, you gave me soul and inspiration! Bill, we share in your loss and feel your pain.
Sincerely, Tom and Laraine Carlile and family.

November 12, 2003
WE were so sorry to hear of Bobby's death.. Some wonderful memories will always be revived when we hear their music. I am sure that the heavenly choir is going to gain from our loss.
November 12, 2003
To Linda and family, Bill & Paula and family,The band and crew my deepest sympathy and heartfelt sorrow and prayers go out to you all. You have all been a important part of my life since the early 70's. I was lucky enough to have you all as friends over the past 30 plus years. I remember driving in Bobby's Carmen Ghia to go to the Five Crowns to see Linda and Bill in the Ferrari to Dillmans to see Paula. Helping with "Medleys" and "Kicks" The numerous concerts from Frisco at the Freemont, Vegas, Shreveport, Reno, Smokey Stover's, The Beach Ball, The Hop, Anahiem and the O.C. Fair and the stories that go along with each all the through the years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your friendship and music has seen me through all phases of my life and will continue to influence me for the rest of my life. May God embrace Bobbie as we did and save us a place in Rock & Roll Heaven, I'll be looking for my passes at will call when I join you. Bill & Paula, my thoughts and prayers are with you and Bill please carry on, your solo shows have always been some of your best. Losing Bobby and his voice is unbearable don't let this silence yours. With much love and respect. Phil
November 12, 2003
Bobby's gone to Rock and Roll heaven, but my heart has such an empty feeling. I was lucky enough to see the Brothers in concert once and it was one of those life experiences never to be forgotten. My prayers go out to Bobby's family and Bill.
November 12, 2003
Deepest Smapthy to the Hatfield family. My husband and I just went to see the Rightgeous Brothers a couple of months ago at the Hampton Beach Casino. We had gone the year prior and enjoyed the show so much that we went back again this year. They were a great team and their mutual respect and love for one another showed though. We are really going to miss that team and are very sad we won't get the chance to see them again, but it was Bobby's time and he was called home to Rock-n-Roll heaven. He will be greatly missed!
November 12, 2003
Bobby, thanks for all the happy memories. Your music and your life brought inspiration and love to everyone you touched. Hugs to Linda and the kids. watch over us all, and we'll meet again soon.
November 12, 2003
My fiance' and I was looking forward to seeing you in Toledo, Ohio on November 7, 2003. At last that is not to be. While you may not be here physically your soul will continue to live on in your music. God bless your family with the wonderful legacy of memories that you left them with. Your songs will forever have a place in history and my heart.

My deepest sympathies to all Bobby Hatfields friends and families. He will be greatly missed, and the music industry will never be the same, however, Rock N Roll Heaven now has a new member.
November 12, 2003
Linda, please know that Robbie and my thoughts are with you and the children.
There is an old Eskimo legend that ...they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy....it is simple, but comforting...alison
November 12, 2003
My wife and I have listened to your music for a long time. We seen you perform in Indio, Ca. at Fantasy Springs in their outdoor theater. I was able to stand right by the stage and watch you perform for almost 2 hours. You were absolutely awesome. Bobby you will be greatly missed. Karen & Tom Fronek
November 12, 2003
our thoughts and prayers are out to all families involved in the loss of bobby hatfield, after many years of trying to bring the boys to our area we finally had the opportunity to see the show and meet everyone. after the show, the treatment we received from bobby, tim lee and lee ferrel was short of phenomenal i hope in time our paths will cross again
November 12, 2003
Our deepest sympathies go to the Hatfield and Medley families.
My first R. B. concert was at the Civic Arena, Pittsburgh, Pa. in 1967. I was in 7th heaven!! I'm now a 55 yr old mother of two grown daughters, who can sing your songs word for word. Your music will live on for generations to come. Thanks for sharing your talents with all of us.
Bill, carry on in the fashion we all know you are capable of. We know Bobby is watching over you and will see you through this. We're all behind you, love. I think my favorite song is one that is not heard as much as the classics, but it was simply called "He". We love all your songs. God bless you all. Our prayers are with all of you.
November 12, 2003
I have had a huge crush on Bobby and been a fan of The Righteous Brothers since 1974, when Rock and Roll Heaven came out and my best friend and I saw them in Omaha for the first time. We were so crazy about them that we used to write short stories about them just for fun. In November of 2002, we saw them in Lincoln, Nebraska and again this past March in Omaha. The boys and their songs were just as beautiful as ever, and I still swooned when Bobby sang "Unchained Melody". I am so heartbroken that he is gone, but the music and memories will remain with me forever. My deepest condolences and prayers go out to his wife, family and friends, the members of the band and to Bill Medley, to whom I send a hug of comfort. "God speed His love" to all of you.
November 12, 2003
I have been an avid Righteous Brothers fan since the beginning. Their music has always been an inspiration for me and help get me through three years of Viet Nam. My deepest condolences on the passing of Bobby Hatfield. He will be missed and remembered always.
November 12, 2003
my heartfelt sympathys go to bobbys family and also to bill and the band. i was never lucky enough to see bobby and bill in concert , i almost did , nearly got my dream come true but the british concert i was going to was sadly cancelled , but i still have lovely memories of you and your beautifull music to remember you by. we will miss you bobby, we loved you so much and always will. love julie , emma and stephanie asbury
November 12, 2003
Well, what can I say? As an avid record collector and music fan, Bobby Hatfield's music will forever remain a part of my life. My personal favorite is "Things didn't go your way". I love when the boys would get down and bluesy. Everyone knows the Righteous Brothers for their ballads, but they could do all kinds of music, and ROCK like nobody's business!!! I hope more people discover their music, because there's such a wealth of great stuff that they did. If it weren't for the Righteous Brothers, there would be no "blue-eyed soul". Just some of the performers who were obviously influenced by them include Michael Bolton, Paul Carrack, Michael McDonald, Hall & Oates, Curtis Stigers, Peter Cetera, Phil Collins, The Blues Brothers, Billy Joel, Elton John, Rod Stewart, and many others. Without Bill and Bobby, the world would be a much different place. Their music will live on forever.

Here's hoping you carry on, Bill, with the music. When you sing "Let the good times roll", you obviously mean it! And to Bobby, Rock On up there in Rock N' Roll Heaven! And for everyone else, the next time you see a copy of "Just once in my life", do yourself a favor, and pick it up. You won't be sorry. The boys are really having fun here. And that's the best tribute I think anyone can get.
November 12, 2003
My deepest sympathy to the Hatfield family.
The Righteous Brothers were a big part of my life back in 1965 growing up in the SouthBay(near Orange County) and singing their songs along with my brother in our band. Those were the day's, and as the years went by, their music remained timeless. There will always be a place in my heart for all the memories he has given me through his music.
God Bless
November 11, 2003
I loved your songs since they were first out and finally got to hear you in person a few years ago in Atlantic City, then a couple of years after that in Las vegas. You were so great!!!!!! If there is a heaven, it has to be a rock and roll heaven for you, Bobby. Condolances to your family and to Bill. Again, you guys were the best. What a loss to the music world!
November 11, 2003
The Righteous Brothers have been such a wonderful presence in so many lives.

WE'VE LOST THAT LOVIN' FEELING.
November 11, 2003
Paul Jr, and myself, send our deepest heartfelt condolences to the family, Bill, members of the group and friends. I was at the Orleans the last two weeks of there shows, and didn't miss one.
Yes, there is a Rock and Roll Heaven and now it has a added and one of the greatest singers.
November 11, 2003
Our loss--Heaven's gain..I've been a fan from the flat out get go..Never missed a Pittsburgh show..Deepest Sympathy to Bobby's family-friends-Bill Medley the band and technical staff..God Bless you Bobby..
November 11, 2003
I am very saddened at the passing of a great singer and an old classmate. When "little Latin Lupe"came out,what a shocker it was to learn that the Bobby Hatfield that was one of the Righteous Brothers was the same one that was our class president for the class of 58 of Anaheim High School. I remember all the pep rallies he presided at, and what fun it was when he attended our 20th class reunion. I will always remember the range he had in his wonderful voice. He will be missed. My condolences to his family and to Bill Medley.
November 11, 2003
Saw you guys at the raddison hotel in merrillvile indiana 2 times and you were great.Peace Bobby and hang in there Bill and family members. God bless.
November 11, 2003
My wife and I wish to express our deepest sympathy to Bobby's family and to Bill and the band. I have been a fan of the Righteous Brothers since the late 60's when I attended a concert in San Francisco. This past July 29 my wife and I saw their show in Las Vegas. I am so glad I got to see Bobby and the show again. We enjoyed every minute of it. That was the only show we wanted to see in Las Vegas.

November 11, 2003
First of all, my sympathies to Bobby's family and friends, and sympathies and a hug to Bill.

Where do I begin?? The Righteous Brothers became part of my life at age 15 when Rock and Roll Heaven was a hit and they have been in my heart since then. I have been fortunate to have seen them two more times since 1974, just recently in Omaha earlier this year. I will forever remember that wonderful day when they brought happiness, laughter and great music to this town. Now, my heart is broken. Carry on, Bill! We need you now more than ever.
November 11, 2003
My husband worked with the Righteous Brothers for the past several shows at The Orleans here in Las Vegas. He just had so many good things to say about him. Our hearts go out to Bobby's friends and family. May he rest well.
November 11, 2003
It feels as though I lost a member of my family. There will never be anyone like the Righteous Brothers. I remember waiting line for 2 hrs at Medley's to see them and then stayed for the second show everyday for 7 days. Unchained Melody is the song that identified my teens. No matter the mood, just put on the Righteous Bros and feel a peace and calmness come over you. There are no words to say how much it hurts to have to say good-bye to Bobby. Be with the great Rock & Roll band in Heaven, where all the great are waiting with open arms, and while you're there please say Hello to my Mom who loved you as much as I did, she was my
sidekick for every performance I went to, and they were many. My deepest sympathy to the Hatfield Family and the Brother left behind, Bill Medley, you'll find a way to carry on, because that's what Bobby would have wanted.
November 11, 2003
My condolences to the Hatfield family, Medley family and to all the Brother fans. When a white man can take a song like Ebb Tide, after Lenny Welch and Roy Hamilton both had hits with it, and make it his own, how do you explain that? I'm going to miss Bill and Bobby trying to out-soul each other, they were the "Righteous Brothers", and Righteous they were! Wherever music is played, whether here or the hereafter, the "Blonde Bomber" will be there. Thank you Bobby....
November 11, 2003
The Righteous Brothers have been the only group for me since high school! Without their song "Dream On" I would never have gotten through many of the bad things in life...my heart is broken that I will never get to see them in concert! Well at least not until I make it to rock -n- roll heaven. God Bless your family...and carry on Bill, we, your fans will help lift you up!
November 11, 2003
To the Hatfield Family and Bill Medley:
My husband and I will truly miss seeing the Righteous Brothers perform. We have seen them from Las Vegas to Bedford, Texas and enjoyed every minute of every song. There will never be another voice like Bobby's. Rock 'n' Roll Heaven just received it's shining star in Bobby! Thank you for making him a part of our lives.
God Bless --
November 11, 2003
The Band in Heaven That Bobby and Bill have always sung of just added a lead singer of incredible talent. My wife and I were fortunate enough to see them perform just 3 weeks ago at the Orleans. "A concert that I will never forget and treasure for life". Our deepest heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family, the band and especially to you Bill Medley....GOD BLESS YOU.
November 11, 2003
I express my sympathy to Mr. Hatfields family, friends and fans. Oh to remember those Saturday afternoons watching the Righteous Brothers on "Shindig" back when I was in Junior High School! First Mono record put out by Verve....... Righteous. Late 60's burned up many 8 track tapes of the Righteous Brothers.. hot summer nights were tough on them. Oh go buy another one. The casette tapes, now CD's. The "Anthology"... disc #2 has been in my player for the last 6 months. Awesome sound. Friends went to their concert in Minneopolis a couple of years ago.... called me on a cell phone with it held up so I could hear them sing. Righteous.... then they brought me a Righteous Brothers T-shirt. Throughout the turmoil in our world since the 1960's the Righteous Brothers voice blend could somehow "calm the angry seas". Love can make a young boy into a man, but a broken heart can change a man.... back into a boy again....... I am 15 again. From anthology to Legend. Long live the sound of the Righteous Brothers. Keep it going Bill! Somehow keep it going.
November 11, 2003
My deepest, heartfelt sympathy to Bobby Hatfield's family and to Bill Medley and his family and to everyone he loved. God bless.
November 11, 2003
I feel like I have lost a member of my family. Bill and Bobby have been my long time favorites. Ever since they first started in the 60's. Thank goodness I was able to attend many of their concerts. My prayers go out to the Hatfield and Medley families.
November 11, 2003
I sit by the Lake, watching it move silently, I think of the past... This year has seen the passing of many entertainers, but none has hit my heart and caused me to break into tears as when I heard of the passing of Bobby Hatfield. Growing up in Chicago's Cabrini Green Housing Projects, I remember my Mother always singing and jamming to the Righteous Brothers, they were her favorite group. Two years ago, on my Mother's birthday, I decided to honor her memory by going to Atlantic City to see the Righteous Brothers. It turned out to be one of the best shows I had ever attended. It was funny, entertaining and good old-fashioned soulful singing. I came home and immediately went online and purchased their 25th Anniversay VHS. When they sung Rock and Roll Heaven, I could just see my Mother and Father bopping in the Heavens. Bobby, thank you for what you gave to the world. I will never forget you. We will mourn you, but God is lucky to have you back within his arms. Sleep well... you've earned this eternal rest.
November 11, 2003
Bobby, We met you many times,you were so gracious.We saw you two at the Retail Clerks union hall in Buena Park..We'll miss you and you'll be in our prayers..Thanks again..Rest in peace.
November 11, 2003
My deepest condolences to Bobby Hatfield's family and friends. Also, to Bill Medley. I and my family had the opportunity to see them in Vegas 4 times over the last couple of years. It was great fun for everyone. Bobby will be missed.
November 11, 2003
To Linda and her family.
To Bill and his family

Our deepest condolences at your untimely loss. We'll never forget the great times we had and the joy from attending the concerts. God's choir just received a great man.

November 11, 2003
It seems like only yesterday that I sat on my living room floor, with that black and white TV on and FM simulcast blasting, alone with Bobby and Bill and loving all the soul of The Midnight Special. The years have tumbled by, friends and family have come and gone, but "The Brothers" were always there---through the best and the worst of it.

My sincere condolences to Bobby's family and to Bill Medley and his family...and to all those, like my husband and myself, who felt this loss so painfully. May you all find comfort in knowing that Bobby lives on---in the music, in our hearts and, most certainly, in Rock and Roll Heaven!
November 11, 2003
Our deepest sympathies to his familly, to Bill Medley, to all who knew him. He truely was ha great singer and will be missed.
November 11, 2003
My world changed when I heard the sound of the Rightous Brothers, I am a 32 Londoner (UK), Bobby's death brings extreme emotion, emotion that I felt when I first heard Un-Changed Melody baxk in 1990 when it was No 1 in the UK for Months, My love & heart felt respects go to all that knew, Heard & loved Bobby, especially his family, may god honour & protect you through this differcult time. GOD BLESS.
November 11, 2003
I just saw the Righteous Brothers for the first time on OCt. 16 in Las Vegas. It was one of the best concerts I have ever seen. Bobby will be missed greatly by every rock & roll fan.
November 11, 2003
Our deepest sympathies to Bobby's family and to Bill Medley. For many years we have visited Las Vegas and I have been trying to get hubby to take me to the concert of Bobby & Bill's but we never seemed to have made it. I'm the music lover in the family. But just this past August the 10th, 2003 we made it, finally. We were a few minutes late for the show but I was so happy we finally got there. It was Bobby's 63rd Birthday and we sang Happy Birthday to him. Bobby, "You'll Never Walk Alone" All of us will be with you, with all of our memories of the songs you sang and shared with us, throughout the years. I used to say if school work was put to music and we memorized it as well as the songs thru the years we would all have 100% in our marks. We knew all the words and will be singing them forever in our hearts. You have earned your true rest in Rock and Roll Heaven....Thanks for the memories..
November 11, 2003
Ever since I heard the news of Bobby's death, I have been filled with sadness. The Righteous Brothers have been my favorite singers since I danced to their music in the 1960's. In the last few years, I was lucky enough to hear them in concert three times and was looking forward to attending another one. Bobby sang from his heart and soul and put everything he had into his performances. He will really be missed! I am so glad The Righteous Brothers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Bobby was there to share the honor with Bill. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Bobby's family, Bill Medley, the band, and other members of the touring group..

I pray that God will wrap His arms around you and will comfort and strengthen you. . Thank you, Bobby and Bill for making me so happy when I saw you perform. Your music will always live on in my heart.
November 11, 2003
We have seen Bill & Bobby perform many times since our first Righteous Brothers concert in 1966 and were fortunate to have met with them backstage several times after their performances. Bobby was always warm and friendly, with a special zest for life, and we will treasure our photos taken with him over the years. He and Bill were truly our soul and inspiration, and they will both be in our hearts forever. We had front row center tickets for their performance that would have taken place at the Orleans on November 30th, and we just can't believe we won't be seeing him or watching them perform again. When we listen to Bill singing "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", it has now taken on a new and deeper meaning--Bobby was a "brother" to all of us. We want to extend our sincere sympathy to his wife, children, grandchild and other family members, as well as to Bill and the band and crew.
November 11, 2003
My deepest sympathies go to Mrs. Hatfield and family..and of course to Bill Medley and family
I have been a fan of Bobby since the shindig days (60's)..
Three years ago my oldest daughter, Kym surprised me with tickets to see the Righteous Brothers at the Count Basie theater in Red Bank...
I am very thankful I got to see them both...will never forget that show

November 11, 2003
My condolences go out to all of Bobby's family and to Bill Medley. I was so shocked to hear the news. Me and my family had seen "The Boys" as we called them, in Vegas 4 times over the last year or two. I love their music and will miss him very much. I am so glad I bought the new Live CD that they made recently and also glad about their induction into the R&R Hall of Fame. Thanks Bobby for all of the great concerts you gave us!!
November 11, 2003
To the Hatfield family,

My heartfelt prayers and condolences to you at this sad time in your life. Thank You to Bobby for the wonderful music!
November 11, 2003
My thoughts & prayers are with the Hatfield family, but especially to Bill Medley. You have not only lost your partner in the music industry but you have probably lost the Best Friend that a person could of every have. The two of you had such a chemistry in your God given talents. Bobby & I share the same Birthday of Aug. 10th. Every year from here on, he will always be in my heart. Bobby is truely in Heaven singing with the Angels. The first song that I thought of was Rock & Roll Heaven. He will live on in the beautiful music that the two of you would sing about. The Righteous Brothers have always been one of my very favorite Duo's. Rock on Bobby in your very own Rock & Roll Heaven.
November 10, 2003
My deepest sympathy goes out to the Hatfield Family also to Bill Medley.I have seen the Rightous Brothers numerous times.They preformed at the Front Row Theatre here in Cleveland many years ago. After the show they came out in the lobby with a few stay behinders. They were the friendliest preformers I have ever met.And my favorite. Their song "Unchained Melody" was mine & my late husband's song. Any time we heard it, Bob would have me dance with him. He stopped the car in downtown Cleveland to have me dance with him...I locked the door till the song ended.....Poor Bob was on the sidewalk by himself...My Bob died 6 yrs ago and I still cry each time I hear the song.....God Bless!
November 10, 2003
I was so sad to learn of Bobby's death. Physically I felt it in the pit of my stomach, just as I would if I had lost a blood relative. I have enjoyed his music for over 40 years. In person several times and records. There will be no replacing him nor should we try. My prayers go out to Bill and the Hatfield family. Rock & Roll heaven is truly blessed tonight.God bless you Bobby
November 10, 2003
To Bobby's wife, children, his singing partner Bill, and all his fans, This is truly a loss that will be long remembered. It is so difficult to have someone that you grew up listening to the beautiful music he made pass on. You could tell he loved his fans as much as they loved him. Hearing Unchained Melody will now bring tears to my eyes.....but will ALWAYS put a shiver up my spine. The best love song to dance to, to neck to, and all the other things that made us an unique generation. I will always dance it for you until I am too old. Thank You Bobby for many good years and happy memories. Rest peacefully. You will be missed but always beautiful.
November 10, 2003
What a shock and lost feeling I have encountered over the past few days since learning of the loss of Bobby Hatfield. Grandma V played the sweet Righteous music in my youth. Meeting him for the first time at Magic Mountain I remember how kind, funny and patient he was. To his wife, family and partner...my prayers and thoughts are with you.

Thank you for great memories and music that will live as long as Bobby's spirit.
November 10, 2003
To Linda & Family
To Bill & Family
My deepest and most sincere sympathy on your loss. I can't believe Bobby is gone but I know he is smiling down on you now and will always be your guardian angel. Bobby I will miss you terribly. You and Bill were always such good friends to Sandee and I and I can't believe it was 38 years ago when we first met. A chance meeting in NYC started it all in 1965 and the friendship remained all these years. I consider myself very fortunate to have known you and I thank you for all the wonderful memories. Rest in peace Bobby and please know you will be forever in my heart. Linda, Bill and families, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
November 10, 2003

Bill, this is your #1 fan since 1962 at the 49ER club, El Monte, California.

We talked at "The Orleans", Las Vegas,took a picture together and I met your son, July 29th after the show. I have autograph pictures, 8x10 of you and me, another of you and Bobby on my TV, a special place over the TV that's for special people. I was just getting ready to go see you guys again in November at "The Orleans". I love the Righteous Brothers since I met you in the '60's. It doesn't end here you guys are the best "Hall of Fame". You will both live forever just like Bobby said, your grandkids, great grand kids and your fans will keep you alive forever. Nobody can replace the Righteous Brothers. Bobby and you looked great at "The Orleans". We met a couple all the way from Florida just to see you guys and we had a ball seeing you and Bobby perform. You guys aren't getting old you are getting better. Bobby and you looked really happy and enjoying yourself and the people could see that.

Bobby died with his boots on, looking great and as a fan I'll always remember how good you made us feel all these years. I feel like I lost a brother or family member.

I hope there is a Rock N' Roll heaven and Bobby is doing his thing for God. So I will miss him, but I have a lot of good memories because of you guys. And Bobby lives in all of us. "ONLY ONE BOBBY HATFIELD" in this lifetime.

Bill, I feel very very bad for you. I wish I had the right words to say to you except I prayed to God for you to keep you strong and help you. I really know how you feel, PLEASE don't give up. Bill, God gave you a great voice and I hope to see you sing again, maybe write a book about you guys. I just sent for "Blue Eyed Soul", someday I'll go looking for you at the beach and get it autographed.

My grand daughter in Oregon get's a letter from me, I heard Bobby did the same thing with his grandchild. They will miss him as well as you and me.

Speaking for all the fans " I Love You Guys", number one fan, Bob Silvas (49ER)

P.S. God Bless Bobby's family and Bill Medley's family.

The music given to all of us by this wonderful voice will be greatly missed. Condolences to all who have been touched by his presence.

November 10, 2003
May God watch over and bless your family.
November 10, 2003
Our sincere heartfelt sympathy to you and your family over the loss of Bobby. My girlfriend and I were one of the many that were going to see the concert in Kalamazoo on that terrible evening. We were so excited, even for 52 year olds! The music the brothers created and sang will always be a favorite of ours. There has never been a time when upon hearing their songs that I didn't grab my husband for a dance.
Thank God for his wonderful gift.

The music of the Righteous Brothers lifted us up and touched our hearts and continues to do so. Our thoughts are with your family and we shall miss you greatly
November 10, 2003
I want to send the Hatfield family and Bill Medley my sincere condolences.

I grew up listening to the Righteous Brothers. I have passed that love onto my children. I had the pleasure of seeing them in concert 3 times. My parents took me to see them at Knotts Berry Farm. I fell in love with them right away. My greatest memory is seeing them at Clearlake around 6 years ago. After the concert I met Bobby. He was so nice. He talked to my husband and I about 30 minutes. He never made me feel like I was bothering him. He was so lovely. I will always cherish that moment.

I will miss you!
November 10, 2003
My sincere sympathies goes out to bobby family and bill. I grew up with them. It would be a great honor and tribute if a film maker could make a movie of the greatest duo ever for all of the millions of fans around the world that bobby and bill has touch their hearts and mind. The greatest song ever recorded is "unchained melody" by bobby and bill because the song was wrote just for bobby. I will always love them and their families and their music.
November 10, 2003
Mrs. Hatfield, family and Bill Medly,
My heartfelt condolences I send to you with a heavy heart. May God bless you and help you to bear this burden of such great loss.
Mrs. Hatfield, I thank you so very much for sharing Bobby with us. I have been an avid Righteous Brothers fan since early 60's. I feel honoured to have been able to hear him sing many, many times in concert. Now, I am sure, he is showing the angels how to hit those high notes with "soul", feeling, and joy.
Mr. Medley, God bless you as well in this time of such great loss. I'm sure it feels as though you have lost a true brother. How fortunate to have had such a friend and partner for so many years.
God bless and keep you all.
November 10, 2003
Dear Mrs. Hatfield and Bill,

Words cannot express how sad my husband and I were when we heard the news.

We were planning on going to Vegas to see The Righteous Brothers for the 10th time. We enjoyed each and every concert so very very much.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Mrs. Hatfield, your children and with Bill.

Thank you so much for giving us so much enjoyment over the last 42 years. My husband uses your line when he says his age...I'm 50 Ten!
November 10, 2003
Living in Las Vegas, I was fortunate to see the Righteous Brothers concert at the Orleans several times. My husband saw them for the first time Oct. 21st and wished he had gone with me more often. I will listen to Rock and Roll Heaven and know that they have a great addition to their band. Bill we hope that you are able to continue the soulful sounds that we absolutely love.
November 10, 2003
Bobby, Thank you so much for being a big part of my growing up years.Seeing you and Bill at the Cinnamon Cinder in Hollywood in the 60s was something I will always remember after each show you guys always had time to shake hands and sign autographs.Always tried to get to see you guys on the Shindig show when you were on .Prayers to your family and to Bill.Love you always and God bless.
November 10, 2003
The first ever concert I went to my parents took me to see the Righteous Brothers for my 11th birthday 13 years ago. I had been a fan of their music for years even by that point, and their live performance blew me away. I've been lucky enough to see "blue-eyed soul" performed live a few times. In recent months I've been trying to get to see them again. While I'm upset that that won't happen, I'm quite happy I did get to see them perform the few times I have. Thanks for the memories.
November 10, 2003
Bobby, you will be greatly missed. The Righteous Brothers became an annual summer thing up at Hampton Beach N.H. Every year. I got to hang out at the Ashworth Hotel and have drinks with them after their shows up there. I stayed at the same hotel. Bill Medley...your partner is gone but your music will ALWAYS be around. God Bless.
November 10, 2003
Thank You Bobby For All The Memories, You Will Live Forever In My Heart, And Heaven Is That More Blessed With Your Soul & Hearts Inspiration, My Heart Goes Out To Bobby's Family & To Bill Medley...Someday You'll Be Singing With Bill Again, For God
November 10, 2003
Bobby was born in Beaver Dam but moved away before I was born. I love the soulful sound of his voice and the blend with Bill's voice is magical. I only saw them perform once and it was awesome. The legend of the Rightous Brothers will live on in our hearts. My sympathy to his family, Bill Medley and their band. He may be gone, but he won't be forgotten! God Bless you until I again hear your voice in the choir above.
November 10, 2003
I grew up listening to the Righteous Brothers and was fortunate to have seen one of their performances in Las Vegas 3 years ago. It was a show I will never forget. Since my fiance, Cliff Rogers, attended high school with Bobby at Anaheim High, I wanted to write a note to Bobby and have the usher hand it to him backstage in the hopes of meeting him and having Cliff and Bobby reunite for a few minutes, but Cliff, being the shy man that he is, wouldn't let me. The news of his passing definitely pierced my heart as I feel so badly for his family and Bill Medley. They are truly a legend and his music will never be forgotten. Thank you, Bobby, for sharing your wonderful talent with millions of people who appreciated it, like I did. You will be truly missed, but never forgotten. The angels in Heaven picked one of the best tenors ever to join their choir!
November 10, 2003
To Vallyn Hatfield,
I am deeply sadden by the sudden lost of your father, Bobby Hatfield. He has touched so many of our lives with his amazing voice and music. I am so grateful that I was able to meet your father and tell everyone what an incredible man, father, and husband he was. I will always remember our trip to Vegas when we got to see your dad and Bill perform at the MGM. What an awesome concert that was. Your father has lived an incredible life - his dream. He will never be forgotten and he will be a legend forever. My prayers go out to you, your family, and Bill Medley and his family. I love you Val and I will always be here for you. May your father rest in peace and watch over you and your family. God Bless
November 10, 2003
We are still shocked over the passing of Bobby. We were fortunate to catch the Righteous Brothers, in October, at the Orleans in Vegas. My wife and I got to shake his hand and say Hi to him and his wife in the Orleans Casino on their night off. How sad that he is gone. He seemed like a sweet guy. It has been too painful to listen to their music since the tragedy. We hope that we can dance around our living room singing low to the Righteous Brothers music once again. God speed Bobby and may he provide comfort to your loved ones.
November 10, 2003
To the family of Bobby Hatfield,

Like many, I knew Bob through the wonderful music that he made... The world is a better place because he has passed through it, even if his time of passing was all too quick in coming. He has made a lasting mark in the world of beautiful, emotional music, and he will live in my heart forever..

Sincerely, Walter Godek, Long Valley, NJ
November 10, 2003
Mrs.Hatfield and Family,
Bill and family.

Please accept my deepest sympathy in the lost of your Husband and father and friend.
Thanks for sharing him with his fans for so many years. My first RB concert was 39 years ago and my last one was one month ago, I still can’t believe there won’t be any more!
God bless you and keep you safe in his arms.
November 10, 2003
Our sincere sympathies go out to Bobby's family and friends and his partner in song, Bill Medley. A truly great entertainer has left us.
November 10, 2003
When I heard the news that Bobby Hatfield died, I didn't want to believe what I was reading. But as I read the news article online, I found that it was undeniably THE Bobby Hatfield of Righteous Brothers fame that had passed, and my first thought was, "After all those years performing together, Bill Medley must feel like half of his life just left him." Condolences to all of Bobby's family, and also to Bill Medley. I have The Righteous Brothers to thank for my first concert experience at age 17 back in 1999, and they were awesome! I saw them three more times before taking my wife to see them on our honeymoon in Vegas this past June. She's 21 as well, and she also was amazed. She whispered to me that "I like Bobby more than the other one." I'll always remember his sweet rendition of "Unchained Melody," which made the concerts worth going to just for that song alone. I feel privileged and honored to have seen him perform before he passed away, and considering I'm only 21, it's amazing enough I was able to see him at all, considering the Righteous Brothers days on the charts were long ago. Thank you Bobby Hatfield for the experience of the Righteous Brothers.
November 10, 2003
My husband and I were extremely fortunate in being able to enjoy, along with 6 friends, the Righteous Brothers concert at the Orleans on October 21st. I was taken to tears, laughter and sweet memories during the show. I was also fortunate to purchase an autographed denim tour jacket after the show, which is now one of my most prized possessions. The live concert CD is almost worn out as we have listened to it so much in the past couple of weeks. You will be in our hearts forever.
November 10, 2003
who didnt listen to these wonderful guys they were an inspiration thankyou for all the great songs and memories this is a great loss to all of us my sympathy to his family and to bill medly
November 10, 2003
Mr.Hatfield was simply one of the greatest singers of all time. I am only 37, but the Righteous Brothers are one of my all time favorite performers. Their music gave a lot of joy to everyone. I am glad that I had the chance to see them perform more than once. He will not be forgotten.
November 10, 2003
My thoughts and prayers go out to Bobby's family on this sad occasion. The Righteous Brothers have been an inspiration to my husband and myself. We loved going to their concerts. Bill, we feel your loss and only hope you continue to carry on the legacy that you and Bobby created.
November 10, 2003
Last night I played my CD with song Rock and Roll Heaven and, along with Bobby's track, I heard the angels harmonizing to lift his God-given voice to even greater levels.

My deepest sympathy and prayers to Bobby's family, musical family and especially Bill.
What a rainbow of memories The Righteous Brothers have contributed to the soundtrack of my lifetime and so many other fans.
I was fortunate to see them in concert several times. What an inspiration.
God bless.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE MUSIC. We had the pleasure of seeing you about this time last year in Tunica Miss. We were celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary and the show/music really took us back. What a wonderful memory. We had hoped you would be back again this year, but. . . . May God bring Comfort & Peace to your family.
November 10, 2003
We've seen "The Brothers" at least 25 over the last 40 years.The first time with April Stevens and Nino Tempo for $1.00. Nobody could hit the high notes like Bobby. I just wanted them to sing forever. They're the greatest rock 'n roll duo of all times. We've collected their anniversary t-shirts from every tour. "Unchained Melody" will live forever. God welcomed him to the choir. They needed someone to hit those high notes. God bless your family, Bobby, you were one of kind and we will miss more than ever. Loved you, Jerry and Bonnie Lunsford
November 10, 2003
Bobby, your passing is a very sad day. You've left me though with so many great memories dating back to 1962. I've lost count of the times I've seen you and Bill perform but the memories will always be there. God Bless your family, and Bill.

I have loved the Righteous Brothers since I was 15 years old! Every year I went to their concert in Atlantic City. I feel as if I have lost a family member. I cried & cried on Thursday after I heard the news. How I wanted to meet the Righteous Brothers before they retired! I tried to get backstage this summer at their concert in AC, but no one would let us in. I do have some live pictures of them and one is in a double-sided picture frame in my bedroom. On one side is a black & white picture of them in concert in 1965 at the Westchester County Center when I ran up to the stage and snapped them up close. Their music brings back some great memories for me and I will always love them. God bless you Bobby and your family. I know Bill is devasted, but hope he will go on. I know Bobby is in Rock'n Roll Heaven!
November 10, 2003
Our sincere sympathies to Bobby's
family and to Bill Medley. A great entertainer has left the stage for the great stage in heaven. We miss him tremendously. We were privileged to see him perform 4 times. What memories. Thank you, Bobby, and Bill for these wonderful memories to be cherished.
November 10, 2003
To Mrs. Hatfield and Family,
We are truly sorry for your loss. My wife and I have a special regard for the Righteous Brothers in general, and for Bobby in particular; Unchained Melody is our wedding song. We'll always think of him when we hear this song.
Thank you for sharing him over the years. God Bless!
November 10, 2003
While my other 13 year old friends loved The Monkees, I was enthralled with The Righteous Brothers, though they were already considered "an oldies group." Those voices!! The first time I saw them was just after they reunited in 1974 at Busch Gardens in Florida. First show was ending, so I fought again the leaving crowd to get a front row seat for the second show. What memories. I have seen them almost every year in the last ten, whenever they came anywhere near Chicago, and once I was lucky enough to be in Vegas when they were performing. I would skip the pre-show entertainment so I could wait for their limo to arrive. Had to hug and kiss the boys!!!! The idea that I will never see them in concert again breaks my heart. My condolences to Bobby's family, to the band, and to Bill. My love also to Bill, I will forever be your Chicago area groupie.
November 10, 2003
"Time, goes by, so slowly, and time can do so much."
Time was cruel to all who love the Righteous Brothers and Bobby Hatfield. We were blessed to have you and your melodic voice and beautiful heart and spirit for too short a time, but I will always have the treasured memory of having seen you in concert and the extreme honor of meeting you afterward.
You were the "Soul and Inspiration" for so many who love true and beautiful music, and I will never lose "That Loving Feeling" that your music and lyrics have filled my heart with forever.
I know that Heaven is now a sweeter place.
God be with all those you left behind so suddenly. You will be missed.
November 10, 2003
I was over on vacation in Las Vegas from Liverpool and went to what turned out to be the last concert at The Orleans on 26 Ocotber. It was my first time seeing The Righteous Brothers. You could see that they enjoyed each other's company and also being on stage. I waited for quite a while, hoping to see them after the concert but left to get a bus back to my hotel.
My condolences to Bobby's family and to Bill.
November 10, 2003
Codolences to the family, relatives, and friends. He was not only a singer but an entertainer. The Righteous Brothers legend will live on.
November 10, 2003
Bobby,I still can't believe you're gone from us. I Just saw your show three weeks ago at the Orleans in Vegas. My sister came to visit from Pa. She just lost her husband of 48 years six months ago, Unchained Melody was his favorite song.It was played at his funeral.I managed to get a message to Bobby right before the show, asked him to please dedicate Unchained Melody to her, he did,it's something we will always remember and be thankful for.
If there is truely a Rock and Roll heaven,we know that Bobby is there, with his boyish good looks,charm and personality, singing with the other angels.
November 10, 2003
When I was in my late teens living in Brooklyn, N.Y. my closest friend, Al, and I used to sing together imitating the Righteous Brothers. I used to sing Bobbys part, not even coming close to the notes he could reach, but having a lot of fun trying. We even performed in front of audiences, billing ourselves as the "Wondrous Brothers".

After hearing of Bobbys passing I called my friend Al at his home in Bennington, Vermont and we spoke on the phone for over an hour. I haven't seen Al in over 25 years but the memories of the happiness we got because of Bobby and Bills music and the huge influence they had on our lives cannot be measured.

It may seem strange for a 57 year old man to be walking around depressed and on the verge of tears over the death of someone he never met, but I can't help it. I feel as though I've lost someone who has been my friend for 42 years.

Thanks for the music and the memories.
November 10, 2003
I first met Bob & Bill when I was 17 while I was in the Army, Schofield Barracks Hawaii. I played bass and sat in on thier opening set in 1964. Great thrill. Got to be friends with Bob. Through Sandy and Kip, I've met up with the brothers 2 years ago while in the Chicago area. Bob got a kick out of reminiscing about Schofield Barracks. Great person. You'll be missed greatly. Thanks for your kindness.
November 10, 2003
Thank you Bobby! It was just last year that I was in Las Vegas for a routine meeting when I saw the billboard just outside McCarren Airport. The Righteous Brothers in Concert! I literally dropped everything, and raced straight to the Las Vegas Hilton. And later that same night, I couldn't believe that I was sitting in the theatre just moments away from opening night. It was my first time back in that same Hilton theatre I had seen Elvis in 1972. And for the next two hours I was totally swept away in the moment. I didn't want the night to end. But it did, as everything in life does. And the one thought that stuck with me since that night was that Bobby and Bill were more than a just a team. More than just friends. You both truely cared for and loved each other. You really were brothers! Thank you Bobby. Thanks for the passion in your music. For the moments that take us away from life's mundane routines. For the music I've cherished for so many years. I am greatfull to have had the opportunity to see the Righteous Brothers that night... And some months later, around midnight as I was walking back to my hotel in New Orleans from another meeting. A lone street musician was playing a beautiful rendition of "Unchained Melody" on a clarinet. I drawn to the music seemingly blocks away. Stopped to listen, and remember. Your music does live on! God bless you!
November 10, 2003
The music, laughter, and the good times will not end. It is, and will always be, a "Righteous" way to celebrate a great life. Thanks for changing our lives.

I hope that if the day ever comes when Bobby's wife and family and Bill Medley and family have the opportunity to read these wonderful and sincere messages, they will somehow find an inner peace in knowing how loved Bobby is. While ours is not as personal of a grief as that of his family, Bill Medley, and Bobby's closest friends, we still have a need to share our own special grief with all those concerned.

The Righteous Brothers have given so much to their millions of fans, not only through their songs, but through their humor, kindness, and obvious family values. For those of us who were fortunate enough to actually meet them, in our case more than once, we will always be grateful. Bobby will always be in our hearts and we pray that Bill will have the strength and courage to continue on with the music and songs that made them a legend in their own time.

We have loved you from the beginning and will go on loving you forever. May God be with Bobby's family and Bill Medley's family through this most difficult time.

Rest in peace, Bobby.
November 10, 2003
I was fortunate to have seen The Righteous Brothers at least twice in my lifetime. Once in 1964 at E.L.A. College 4th of July show, and the second time at the Los Angeles County Fair. What showmen! I first learned of the Blue Eyed Soul Brothers from my sister who was four years older and came home with the Righteous Bros. Right Now album. She loved Koko Joe and Little Latin Lupe Lu. Bobby, you may be in Rock & Roll Heaven but with your music, we haven't Lost That Lovin' Feelin. Rest in Peace, dear Bobby. You will be missed.
November 10, 2003
True music,beautiful voices,you knew who it was the minute they began to sing. Bobby your voice, music,soul, will be missed. May god watch over all the loved ones you left behind. Save a place for us in Rock and Roll Heaven.
Bobby and Linda
November 09, 2003
Have loved the Righteous Brothers' music for most of my life. Heaven can only be sweetened by the sound of Bobby hitting those high notes on high. My sincere condolences to his loved ones.
November 09, 2003
Oh Bobby!!!!
You left us way too soon. Mom & I will cherish all our memories from
Medley's, The Hop, Las Vegas & anywhere we could see you & Bill. Your music will live on specially
when we hear Unchained Melody & for
me its "THE WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER"
Love to Hatfield, Medley & The Band
family.We can hear you singing & we
will miss you sooooo much. Pam & Mom
November 09, 2003
Our hearts are so sad. Not only was Bobby a talented man, he had a heart of gold. He loved people and cared about their feelings. He never wanted to leave anyone out. He wrote thank-you notes every day to his fans. I know in my heart Bobby loved each and every one of us. We send our prayers to Linda and the childern. We have all lost a brother and a friend. Your always in our hearts, We love you Bobby, well see you in a minute, HUGS TO YOU AND YOUR DEAR FAMILY
November 09, 2003
I grew up with the Righteous Brothers songs in the 60's. "Unchained Melody" has always been my all time favorite song. Sincere sympathy is extended to all his family and friends. We will miss him.

To Linda and the kids. Your are in our prayers and thoughts at this sad time.
We were remembering back when you worked at Foyees Coffee Shop. Bobby was the bartender at Key West then.
We can remember when you came back from the concert that was to change your life forever. You went to see the Righteous Brothers and ended up being his wife. We were remembering the times that we all sat around after hours and had a few drinks with Joyce, Jim, and Harry. Those were some of the good times. We also were remembering how much Bobby loved you right from the start.
Hope you get to read this and know that you are in our hearts and prayers along with all the memories we all shared.
Love
Sharon and Bobby

After reading through the guest book, it would seem that anything I would say would just be a duplicate of what has been said. However, I feel that it is somewhat comforting to be able to write down my feelings at this sad, sad time. Throughout history we have lost many public figures, from Presidents to actors to singers to royalty (Princess Diana). However, I can truly say that I have never actually cried and felt a pain in my heart as I have with Bobby's passing. Perhaps it is the fact that the Righteous Brothers were part of my high school years as well as part of my life now. I have seen them twice in the past 4 years at The Orleans in Las Vegas and felt that I have grown "older" WITH them. The last time I saw them perform was on my birthday, June 8, 2003. I was on the Second Row Center Stage and felt such a warmth of genuine joy from Bobby and Bill. After the show, my boyfriend and I went to the steakhouse in the hotel for my birthday dinner. Bobby and a couple of band members came in and sat 2 tables down from us. I could hear his laughter from where we sat. I thought of asking him to sign my ticket stub but decided to leave him alone to enjoy his meal. The wonderful memories of their performance will forever remain in my heart and mind when a signed ticket stub may fade. Rock and Roll Heaven has a new star now. Bill, my heart aches for you as you must feel that you have lost a part of you. Do what makes you happy, whatever that may be, because that is what would make Bobby happy. Love and condolences to Bill, Bobby's lovely wife, children, grandchildren, friends and fans. We love you Bobby!
November 09, 2003
I grew up with the Righteous Brothers songs in the 60's. "Unchained Melody" has always been by all time favorite song.
November 09, 2003
I finally got to see the Rightous Brothers in Las Vagas 3 years ago with a group of my friends. Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley sent chills up and down my spine and brought back lots of memories listening to them as a teen in the sixties. Bobby will be missed. God bless him. My condolences to Bill Medley and to their families.
November 09, 2003
Rock and Roll has lost one of the best. I never missed a concert when they came to San Antonio, Texas he truely had soul, you can bet he is singing with the angels. Tina Allain
November 09, 2003
As the two boys said in their song, "Rock and Roll Heaven" Ya know they've got a hell of a band!!!! There is one more edition to that great band, who would have believed that it would be Bobby himself, so soon. Being an old Rock and Roll musician, and now a disc jockey, broadcaster, I am so happy that we have the music to remember him by.
November 09, 2003
I'm so proud to say the Rightous Brothers are from my hometown in Orange County and so sad that Bobby had to leave us so suddenly and so soon. I was 14 and it was my first concert when I first saw the Rightous Brothers at the "old" Melodyland Theatre in Anaheim, California in the early 60s. Condolences to the Hatfield family and to Bill Medley. What a loss to the world.
November 09, 2003
Bobby was "The Voice." Who could ever forget "Unchained Melody"? That soaring tenor was the perfect complement to Bill Medley's bass and proved to the world that it could also stand alone. An unfillable void to the music world. Bobby will be greatly missed.
November 09, 2003
We'll All Miss You Mr. Bobby Hatfield. Keep on a Singing, We will still hear You!! Rest In Peace, Bobby!! My heart and Sympathies Go To The Family and Friends of Mr. Robert Hatfield!! We'll see you when we get there. You'll still be singing and doing a great Job of it too:)
November 09, 2003
My deepest heartfelt condolences to the Hatfield and Medley families along with the Band......
I also grew up with the Righteous Brothers.......
Thank you for being a part of my life.......
GOD BLESS

I am only 23 years old and had only known of the Righteous Brothers by their big hits. They were good, old songs to me until this past summer. At the end of July I was given second row, dead center tickets to their show at the Orleans. Being the concert and music lover that I am I was all for going. They are legends in music. I forever changed after that show. I was blown away by their talent, passion, and charisma on stage, still after 42 years. They even joked about how it felt good to still be "popular" with the young crowd and pointed, smiled, and waved at me during the show, and they did so numerous times. I went right out and bought one of their best of CDs the next day. I can't stop listening to it still even it is now November. I will forever be a huge fan. I am so glad I had that experience, for it showed me one of the best groups in music. My thoughts and prayers are with all the friends and family and definitely with Bill. They will forever be part of my "soul and inspiration."
November 09, 2003
Saw Bobby and Bill at Harrahs Casino in May of this year. The best show of my life. Glad I purchased their cd listen to it all the time. Will miss them together but maybe Bill will carry on.
November 09, 2003
Since I was a little boy in the 60's, the music that The Righteous Brothers performed sent shivers and goosebumps throughout my body. To this day and I am now 50 their music still affects me the same way.
We had the opportunity to see them only twice, the last time in Windsor, Ontario October 2, 2001.
Though we didn't get to meet them that night, my wife and I got to to board their bus with Richard and have a look.
Bobby...You will always be in our hearts and our sympathy goes out to Mrs. Hatfield and family, Bill, and to all the band members.
Thanks for all the Great Memories.
Our Love,
Mike & Jeannette Tassey

I am 42 years old and my wife is 40.

In the 70’s, we attended the same high school and listened to the same hard rock music, however, did not know each other or the Righteous Brothers.

In the 80’s, I fell in love with the movie, “Top Gun,” the song, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” and the idea some day I would meet that special girl.

My wife fell in love with the movie, “Dirty Dancing,” the song, “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life,” and the idea some day she would meet that special guy.

In the 90’s, we met and fell in love with the movie, “Ghost,” and the song, “Unchained Melody.”

On August 09 2003, the last day Bobby could say he was age 50-12, we attended the Righteous Brothers concert in Vegas and sat in the front row!

It was all coming together now.

When we arrived home, we played the 2002 CD of the concert over and over. Plans to go back with the kids were brewing and we sung along in the car.

Well…

My wife and I, our little girl Becca, and one of our twin boys Justin sang. The other twin, Jacob, was content in the back of the van with his headphones and alternative music.

Until one day, Bobby finished “Unchained Melody,” and Bill Medley and Jacob yelled,

“Yeah, Bobby Hatfield!”



Love,

My heartfelt sympathy to Bobby's family and friends and to Bill's family and friends. My husband and I were fortunate enough to see The Righteous Brothers at Wolf Trap in Virginia. We were thrilled to get the opportunity and will never forget it. Thanks for the beautiful music and the everlasting memories. May God bless and keep you. Cheryl Darby.

My husband and I had the Special Pleasure of seeing The Righteous Brothers in Las Vegas 3 weeks ago, we have always loved their music and finally had the chance to see them. The Show was Phenomenal. The news broke our hearts when we heard Bobby had left this world. If a person is judged on how many friends love him, We all do. Our deepest sympathy to Bill and Bobby's family. His voice and smile are in our hearts, he lives on.

I had the chance to meet Bobby and Bill in New York from aradio station, Bobby was a down to earth man and very funny.He and Bill came right up and shook my hand a signed something for me, With his Big smile Bobby joked alittle as well.I also remember when Johnny Maestro and The Brooklyn Bridge did a show with Bobby and Bill in Florida, the guys asked"is there anything you want joanne from florida?" I said"well ask bill and Bobby to sign something for me?" and they did and Bobby and Bill both remembered me well.My heart Broke when The enws at 6am announced Bobby's Passing it was a Big shocker for me.My deepest Sympothy goes to Bobby's family and to His soul mate, brother and best friend Bill Medley, Bobby's in Rock N Roll Heaven now singing with teh greats. God Bless Bobby, Soar and Sing Load. Joanne
November 09, 2003
My favorite song by the Righteous Brothers was (and still is) "Unchained Melody". When I was engaged, it became "our song". I know I will continue to hear the perfect blending of these two voices when their songs are played on the radio. To Mr. Medley and the family of Bobby Hatfield, I want to express my deepest condolences for your loss. His spirit will remain with you forever. May peace be with all of you at this time.

i've loved "blue eyed soul" since the sixties....we've laughed and cried to the music.....we will miss you bobby but we will never be without you......organize the band in rock and roll heaven and save us a seat in the front row.....
November 09, 2003
Bobby, I remember you from the earliest days of my life. My oldest brother was big on the Righteous Brothers and so was I. When you and Bill got into the hall of fame I had hoped that the record companies would re-issue your music. Now that you have passed on to a greater place, I hope that they will finally give you both the respect you deserve by releasing all you work on CD. Why shouldn't our children be able to enjoy the gift you have made to popular music like we all did in the old days.
I'm glad you were on the road doing what you loved when it was your time.

Sadness cannot explain how I feel about the passing of Bobby. I extend my sincerest condolences to the Hatfield Family. I have listened to the Righteous Brothers since 1962. The songs have always brought great joy to me especially Unchained Melody, which is my boyfriends and my song. My heartfelt sympathies go to your family, and I know that Bobby is still singing in heaven.
November 09, 2003
With a saddened heart I read the headlines Thursday morning. I was fortunate to see "The Righteous Boys" several times in the 60's 70's and 90's, and just this past July I was front row center at the Orleans. I had brought my program from the 60's with me and Bobby and Bill signed it for me. There is not enough words for me to express what their music has meant to me and my generation. My heart goes out to the family of Bobby Hatefield and to Bill Medley.
I'll keep this short, God Bless and there is another special talent in that Rock 'n' Roll Band in heaven now.
November 09, 2003
"This was a life worth living, This is a life that will be missed." I fell love with my husband listening to my favorite duo. I passed my love for this talented twosome to my daughter, who has made the trek to the Orleans in Las Vegas with me many times to see them in concert. She has passed that love to my grand daughter who is 9. I am sorry she will never get to see her favorite singers in concert together.
If there is a Rock n'Roll Heaven, they truly have one heck of a band, with a new tenor named Bobby singing lead.
My Daughter, My Grand Daughter, and Myself send our condolences to the family and to Mr. Bill Medley.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bobby Hatfield and his wife and was so saddened and shocked to hear of his passing. I work for the phone company and got a repair ticket on his phone line at his home. This was around the year 1997. I was working at the termination point on the side of his house and Bobby walked up to his kitchen sink area and I saw him through the window next to where I was working. I had no idea who he was and when he talked to me I recall him having a high pitched voice. I can't recall what he said but I remember him sounding very kind and gentle. At that time I had to call one of my peers Richard over because I wasn't sure what I was doing. I was in my mid 20's, new to that job, and not sure where the problem was. When Richard showed up Bobby Hatfield had already gone back up stairs in his home. Richard noticed the gold records on the wall and asked his wife what she did. (I hadn't noticed at all being I was so engrossed in not knowing what to do) She asked why. He told her he had noticed the gold records on the wall. She said my husband is a musician. Richard was a real character and said "I give up, who?" and she smiled and said "Bobby Hatfield". Richard had just turned 50 and grew up listening to Bobby's music. I remember him saying to Bobby's wife "Really" in astonishment. Me being young, I would have known every song had you played it but I didn't know who he was by name and that I had just been talking to him. When we left, Richard was saying things to me like 'do you have any idea who's house you were just in??!! I can't believe you don't know who he is!!! I got to rub in that I talked with him because it had meant so much to Richard. I think he was a little frustrated that I was the one that got to meet him and I was too young to appreciate it. :-) His wife was very nice. I remember her having long brown her, appearing to be very happy and at ease. She reminded me a little bit of a 70's child with the long brown hair, not overly made up, very natural, yet beautiful. They seemed like very down to earth people. Friendly with anybody they came into contact with. I would have never known they were famous had Richard not shown up. At work we would share what famous people we met, respecting their privacy, and everybody always had a lot of wonderful things to say about Bobby and his music when they would hear his name. I'm glad I got the opportunity to meet Bobby and his wife and that they were kind and patient with me being in their home when it took me longer than normal to fix their phone line.....and I hope it really got fixed! My heart goes out to his wife, kids, grandchild, and family. When I heard he passed all I could remember thinking was but he looked so young when I met him and it wasn't that long ago. Some of the best books don't always have the most pages. His music took me through heartbreaks and laughter. I will never forget Top Gun and Ghost. His music is what really marked those favorite moments in the movies. I will continue to enjoy his music and I will get to share that memory with my son, who is now 4 1/2 when he hears the songs that I got to meet him and his wife and that he was a grandpa too, just like his Papa.
November 09, 2003
Such a shock and such a loss! Grew up with the brothers music. First saw them at fair in Santa Rosa, Ca in 1960's. Saw them come back together as a team when they sang at Silver Legacy casino in Reno. Saw Bills solo performances many times in Reno too. Was so good to see them back together. Was going to see them at Silver Legacy again this Friday Nov. 14th. My prayers are with his wife and family...and all his loved ones. We will certainly never forget him and his voice and life will live on in our hearts! God Bless ! Love and Prayers.Minnie Duncan Santa Rosa , Ca.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Bobby Hatfield. His music has been a big part of my life since I first heard them sing when I was in my teens. I wish to send my sincere condolences to Bobby's family and friends and to let them know that he brought joy to so many people. I feel blessed that I have had the Righteous Brothers music in my life and grateful that the music will go on thanks to Cd's, videos and my memories.
Thank you, Bobby, for the lovely memories.
November 09, 2003
I am so glad that I had the privilege of finally being able to attend a Righteous Brothers concert the summer of 2002, and I will never forget it. I grew up listening to their wonderful, gifted voices, and one of their CD's was in my car the day I heard the terrible news of Bobby's sudden passing. I have played the CD everytime I have been in the car since then. It breaks my heart that the world has lost such a wonderful voice and a beloved person. My heartfelt condolences to both his family and to Bill Medley. Today in church I said a prayer for Bobby and his family and friends. I hope the family knows they are in the hearts and minds of many, many people. There will never be another duo like the Righteous Brothers....
November 09, 2003
From an old Orange County boy: I first met Bobby and Bill at the Fire House Bar in Costa Mesa, way back when. I've always them and their music.
November 09, 2003
My deepest sympathy to the family of Bobby Hatfield as well as to Bill Medley, his family, the band and their families, and to the many friends who are in mourning at this time. I've seen you in Las Vegas many times and each time the show was better. All my friends also loved the show. Bill, please continue on with the singing legacy, along with your daughter, McKenna. I've attended your shows in Laughlin and they are great. You have a wonderful rapport with your audiences and we love you. We need you back on the music scene as soon as you feel able to continue. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of need. God bless you all.
November 09, 2003
A number of years ago the Righteous
Brothers performed in Jacksonville, Florida With Kenny Rogers, Dottie West, and BJ Thomas. When Kenny sang "The Gambler" and the words
"the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep" I had no idea
how prophetic those words would be.
The building they sang in, along with Dottie West and now Bobby are gone now. Bobby and his music will be missed. I hope Bill Medley knows we STILL want him to go on for
Bobbie's sake. A tribute album with guest vocalists would be a nice honor for the memory of a true legend. Our prayers are with the Hatfields and Medleys.

I grew up in Renton, Washington in Lake McDonald. My next door neighbors would play their stereo in the summer when their folks were not home and that's how I grew to adore the Righteous Brothers. I also remember seeing them on Where The Action Is, Shindig, etc. Some years ago, I had the opportunity to go to Las Vagas to see them open a show for Paul Revere and the Raiders. What a performance. I was so tickled to see them inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year what a well deserved honor. To Mr. Medley and to Bobby's family, my sympathy. Thank you both for some incredible music.
November 09, 2003
Our sincerest sympathies to the family and friends of Bobby. Our condolences to Bill. The Righteous Brothers were such a big part of so many lives, including ours. Rest in peace Bobby. We will never forget you.
November 09, 2003
I saw the Righteous Brothers at least 7 times and that was not enough. When they sang I could feel
it through my entire body...it was
totally awesome!!! They will be missed greatly. My sympathy to his
family, Bill and of course the others in the band.
November 09, 2003
How sad, Rock and Roll has lost one of it's greatest singers.
I want to express my deepest sympathies to Bobby's family, Bill Medley and the Righteous Brothers Band. I've have truly loved your music and it has brought me comfort through some troubled times.
I really did have the time of my live at your concerts. Great music and silly jokes, who can ask for more?
It was a real pleasure to meet Bobby and Bill, they couldn't have been nicer....
Bobby you will truly be missed, I say "good bye" with a heavy heart, but your music will live on bringing joy and many memories of you.
My thoughts and prayers to your family and friends.
November 09, 2003
With deepest sympathy to the family of Bobby Hatfield and thanks for a lifetime of woderful music, Bobby, you've earned your place in rock and roll heaven.
November 09, 2003
We rarely missed an opportunity to see the Righteous Brothers perform, often traveling many miles to see them. We saw them in many different cities across the U.S., beginning in the 60s. We loved the R.B. and will miss Bobby greatly.
November 09, 2003
Such an awesome talent! We have lost a great singer and will always cherish his records. I feel privileged to have seen The Righteous Brothers show in Phoenix and Las Vegas. Heartfelt condolences to Bobby's family and partner Bill.
November 09, 2003

Sincere condolences to the family and friends of a great entertainer.Here in England he will be sadly missed too...but his music lives on. Rest in Peace,Bobby.
November 09, 2003
To Bill and all of Bobby's family: i am going to miss hearing Bobby sing again - but will gladly hear him in Heaven one day. Bill and Bobby's songs and lovely angel voices will also ring in my memories. i love every song they've sung and we have sadly lost a wonderful truly blessed individual in Bobby. he's now singing with the angels in Heaven. my condolences to Bil, his lifelong singing partner, Bobby's wife and all of his children. he will be so missed. and Bill, please keep singing as Bobby will be right there with you in spirit. leave us more beautiful songs to have as remembrances of your soulful wonderful music and songs. i played your songs before this ever happened, since in high school(1961-65) and am continuing to as i write this message to you; how beautiful and how precious they are to me. love and prayers to you.

November 09, 2003
What a tribute to your life and your talent! Millions will remember you every day through your wonderful music that you left behind for us. Heaven's choir is much sweeter. Thank you for sharing your life with so many. My heart goes out to Bobby's family, Bill Medley and to his band. We have lost another GREAT ONE, but his music will always be with us.
November 09, 2003
I was shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Bobby Hatfield, at such a young age. My condolences to Bobby's wife and children, his longtime partner and "brother," Bill Medley, and other family and friends. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
November 09, 2003
The music of the Righteous Brothers has meant so much to me and I regret I never got the chance to personally tell them.
I have seen as many concerts as possible but the one that means the most to me is the one I saw October 23,2003 at the Orleans in Las Vegas. This trip was made just to see my favorite duo of all time and I was so happy to see that Bill and Bobby were still sounding great and enjoying performing for fans like me. Little did we know that Rock and Roll Heaven was so close for Bobby.
I want to tell Bobby's family how sorry I am for your loss and thanks for sharing him with the world so we can enjoy his music for all time.
Bill , I know you have lost a true brother. Anyone watching you two could see how much you meant to each other. Thoughts and prayers are for you during this time.
November 09, 2003
My heartfelt sympathy to Bobby's family and Bill. I first saw my favorite duo in 1966 in Detroit when Ike and Tina Turner were their opening act. There was a war going on, I was in love with a soldier, and every Righteous Brothers hit had special meaning to us. I have every album! There are many songs on those albums that did not make Number 1...but could and should have. One of my very special favorites is "HE". It made it to 18 on the official charts, but at the top of mine. Thank you for so many years of great songs and great memories! I am sure you are bringing blue-eyed soul to Rock and Roll Heaven.
November 09, 2003
I had the pleasure of seeing you twice in the past five years and you were the best of the best. we will miss you but we will always be playing your CD's.
God Bless you Bobby
November 09, 2003
Looks like it's all been said.Thanks

November 09, 2003
A lifetime of music and memories thanks to Bobby and Bill..Im sorry for Bobby Hatfield's family's loss..and Bill Medley his family and the crew's loss of Bobby..I can only imagine your sadness..Thanks for the best Bobby
November 09, 2003
My deepest sympathy to Bobby's wife and family, and to his "brother" and soul mate, Bill Medley. Fans all over the world are saddened by the untimely death of Bobby, but his music will live on forever.

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity of meeting Bobby and Bill on two occasions. The first time was during their first appearance in San Diego at the old Westgate Park in Mission Valley. I was hired to carry an intermission sign across the stage between acts and, embarassing as it was, Bobby eased my tension with his unmerciful teasing after jokingly calling me "Intermission Karen." My second meeting with Bobby and Bill was at Humphrey's by the Bay after their concert, Aug 6, 1990. What a thrill it was to visit and joke with them once again, and I will always cherish the photos taken with both Bill and Bobby.

Bobby will truly be missed, but the "Righteous Brothers" will forever remain in our hearts.
November 09, 2003
To the Family of our beloved Bobby Hatfield,

I'm so sory for your loss. I can only imagine the sorrow you are feeling.

I have been a huge fan for years and years and have had the pleasure of meeting Bobby.

I will miss Bobby and all the beautiful music he has given us over the years.

Love From Texas,
Barbara
November 09, 2003
My heart will be forever sad, I was so blessed to be a friend and a fan for so many years. Some of the best memories in my live revolve around the "brothers". My heart, prayers and love go out to Linda, Bill and all the members of the band.
November 09, 2003
It's been thirty years that our paths have crossed, in both good times and in bad, you always had a smile and a song. There are no words to express the loss the world shares.... there are no words to express how deeply you touched peoples lives and there are no words to express how you will be missed.... Sleep with Angels Bobby...for you will never be forgotten..... Karri
November 09, 2003
I was most saddened to hear of the loss of Bobby..I once had the greatest opportunity to meet him through my godfather richard who has worked with them for quite a few years now..I found him to be one of the warmest and most down to earth people I have met in quite some time..And I am glad that I did indeed have the chance to meet such a person..We will always have thier great music.......

Bobby has gone to Rock 'n Roll Heaven. He's in good company. We'll miss you Bobby.

November 08, 2003
It was with a heavy heart I learned of Bobby's passing. It was odd that when I learned of the tragedy, I had their CD in my car ready to play. After I heard the news report, I turned on the cd and cried.
My wife and I had the pleasure of being guests at one of the concerts they performed in Las Vegas, a few years ago. We loved their music and still do. What a great legend he was! What a gift he shared with us. My wife and I had the honor of speaking with Bill Medley after the show, and I said I wanted to thank them for years of wonderful music. Such a gift Bobby had cannot be equaled. I will always cherish my memories of the Righteous Brothers. I'll close here by offering our sincere and heartfelt condolences to not only to the family of Bobby but also to Bill Medley as well.
Lastly, to Bobby's family: May the Lord comfort you all in your hour of need and bless you in the years ahead.
November 08, 2003
We were staying at the Orleans casino, and we got to go to the Righteous Brothers show on the 23rd of october. It was a last minute deal and we got great seats. I told my husband that this show was worth the whole trip. It was one of the best shows we've ever seen, and we are so happy we went. We are so sorry for Bill Medley, what a fabulous team they made for many years.
November 08, 2003
The Righteous Brothers are one of the "top" influences in my 59 years.
A devine guidance for sure.
I thank you and just want to say that you and your music will live forever. I cannot bring to words just how blessed and special you gentlemen are.
Sincerely,
Charlie Hannert
For Bobby's family and friends I pass on these words:
Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush
of quite birds circling in flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there. I did not die.
November 08, 2003
I am so sorry to hear about Bobby Hatfield death. He will be greatly missed by his family and his fans.You are in my thought s and prayers
November 08, 2003
we saw you in concert last year and we didn't want it to end. You were both great. Sympathy to your family and Bill. You will be missed.

Joan Lombard
November 08, 2003
My sympathies to Bobby's family & Bill Medley. Our prayers are with you & there's 'Blue-eyed Soul' in heaven tonight
November 08, 2003
I just want to say that bobby will be missed by all.
November 08, 2003
Though the ones we love may leave life as we know it, in our memory, the music that you shared with us will always carry on.
November 08, 2003
What a loss! I'm so glad I got to see the closing night performance in Las Vegas July 29, 2003. "Unchained Melody" my absolute favorite. I listen again to my vinyl 33 1/3. What a beautiful voice. Sing with the angels Bobby.
November 08, 2003
Thank you for all the wonderful songs...Rest in Peace Bobby.
November 08, 2003
I was very sadden to hear about the passing of Bobby. The Righteous Brothers are one of may favorite groups and I have just about every recording they made. He will greatly be missed, but I know he is now in "Rock & Roll Heaven". May God bless his soul and family!
November 08, 2003
What an entertainer! I got through the 60s with Righteous Brothers music but only saw them on stage last month in Las Vegas. "Unchained Melody" still gave me chills. So glad I got that special opportunity.
My prayers to the Hatfields and to Bill Medley. Bobby will be missed by us all.
November 08, 2003
Great Voice, Great talent. You will be missed. My condolences to your family and friends who miss you even more than your fans.
November 08, 2003
To a friend I never met.
Bobby, I and the music world will dearly miss you. A day does not go by that I do not listen to a least one of the Righteous Brothers tunes. Not hearing the combination of your soaring tenor offset or blended with Bill's resonant baritone will leave a void.
I hope I get to meet you in Rock & Roll Heaven a little while from now.

My profound condolence go out to your family and friends for their loss.
November 08, 2003
My heart aches after hearing of Bobby's untimely death. The Righteous Brothers/are/were an icon of a different time in American Music History. They shared innermost feelings... lifted our souls with their intensity and haunting refrains. Bobby... you will be missed... now you're truly singing with the angels. Bill Medley... I cannot begin to imagine how tough this is for you. I've seen the both of you at the Cow Palace in San Francisco and at the Circle Star Theatre in Redwood City. I fell in love with both of your voices... with both of your personnas... with the two of you. God bless you. You're both in my prayers. To your wife and children...please accept my deepest condolences...thank you for sharing Bobby with us!
November 08, 2003
My sister recalls how I played my "Unchained Melody" 45 over and over and over when I was a teen in the '60s. I was probably at first drawn to Bobby's music because my boyfriend resembled him, but that song seemed to resonate deeper in my soul than any other music I had heard at that time -- or have heard to this day. Years later, when my sister and I lived together as adult single moms, she laughed when she heard me again playing "Unchained Melody" -- over and over and over...

My love for that recording has never left, and I even mentioned to my family that I want it played at my funeral. Bobby's passion and emotion fill it with such intensity, I still feel a chill and butterflies when listening to it, even after hearing it literally thousands of times. In my teens, I collected every Righteous Brothers single and album; as an adult, I have collected all their CD's, including the "Unchained Melody" / "Ebb Tide" remix. Both Bill and Bobby brought a special quality to their singular style of music, and their voices together, as the Righteous Brothers, obviously created a classic, unique sound unparalleled in the industry.

I was thrilled when they were inducted into the Hall of Fame early this year. I had never been to any of their concerts. I was always afraid that I would be disappointed, especially after all these years. But, finally, in Las Vegas the first weekend in May this year (2003), I decided I just couldn't NOT see them at least once in my lifetime. I am so very very glad that I did that! First of all, it was probably the best concert I have ever seen! They were absolutely wonderful, and although they changed some of the songs from the original versions, their rendition of each piece was superb! And they were so funny! They showed what a great sense of humor they had and, instead of avoiding the "age" issue (as many rock stars do), they played with it and used it to personalize and deepen the experience. The bond between them as long-time friends -- brothers -- was evident.

And now I'm heartbroken that I will never again have the chance to attend a Righteous Brothers concert. I have never before been touched so deeply by the death of a celebrity. The world has lost a fantastic and talented performer.

We'll miss you so much, Bobby! Thank you for many wonderful years of your special music! But I imagine I'll continue to hear your voice for the rest of my life!
November 08, 2003
My deepest sympathy to Bobby's family and to his partner Bill Medley.
I went to see you two in concert at Pine Nob one time. That day called for thunderstorms but the place was packed. I was sitting up on the hill. About an hour into the concert it started pouring. There I was in my parka singing and dancing with the Righteous Brothers, what a great feeling. You two sang up a "storm" just like you always did. I will remember that day always. Thank you for your music and the memories.
Now Bobby has his place in "Rock n Roll Heaven."
God Bless and Take Care
November 08, 2003
With deepest regrets and a big thank you for all the wonderful music and great concerts. A very sad time for devoted fans.
November 08, 2003
It was a thrill and an honor to be one of the support acts for The Righteous Brothers. It wasn't just about the music. Anyone who has seen the show, will tell you about the humor they also delivered together. We'll miss you Bobby Hatfield. Keep it all going Bill. The world needs it.
November 08, 2003
I was fortunate to see Mr.Hatfield and Mr. Medley In concert last year. I was amazed at how well they still performed.It was truely the best concert I have ever been to. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Hatfields family and to Mr. Medley and all the crew that worked so hard to bring all of us fans such a great show. God Bless you all.
November 08, 2003
THANKS TO BILL AND BOBBY FOR ALL THE GREAT NIGHTS AT THE HOP AND ALL THE WONDERFUL SONGS, WITH YOUR GREAT BAND,MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE FAMILY AND BILL, WE HAVE ALL LOST OF PIECE OF OUR HEART. GOD BLESS
November 08, 2003
Through the generosity of The Righteous Brothers and my Uncle Richard Torres, a band member, I was able to see them perform in Las Vegas and visit with them backstage. What a wonderful experience it was. Bobby and Bill were extremely nice and gracious to us as they always were to my many family members that were lucky enough to have a personal visit with them after the show. Bobby visited with us for quite some time and was very nice. May God bless his family and friends.
November 08, 2003
I WAS SADDENED TO HEAR OF BOBBY'S PASSING. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF SEEING BOBBY AND BILL IN MINNESOTA LAST YEAR...WHAT A MEMORABLE SHOW! MY HEARTFELT SYMPATHIES TO BOBBY'S FAMILY AND TO BILL MEDLEY.
November 08, 2003
Dear Linda and family, I wanted to let you know that I'am deeply sorry for your loss. You have been on my mind and in my prayers all week. I know we haven't seen each other in awhile but if there is anything Ican do for you or your family please don't hesitate to call me. Alexis and I send our love and our prayers. Love Debra and Alexis Vela {Regal Lanes}
November 08, 2003
My husband and I sat in the middle of Row 5 at Miller Auditorium on May 5th. I was finally going to see the Righteous Brothers live in concert after all the years of loving their music. My anticipation was like a young school girl. And then the announcement came and my dreams were crushed. We all knew something terrible had happened. I still haven't gotten over it. God bless you all.
November 08, 2003
My deepest sympathy to the Hatfield family and Bill Medley. Bobby will be greatly missed. I took my daughter to see the Righteous Brothers at Harrah's in Cherokee NC this year and as always their show was great. We were hooping and hollering. Back in the 60's when they had their TV show I wouldn't work at night until my boss brought into the office a TV so I wouldn't miss their show. Sure is a great loss. I loved the Righteous Brothers.
November 08, 2003
Mrs. Hatfield, family and Bill Medley our prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. Remember the good times to help get you through the days ahead. We are very thankful that we saw your concert Oct. 11, 2003 in Laughlin, NV, and enjoyed it immensely.
November 08, 2003
My condolances to Bobby Hatfield's family and to Bill Medley. He will live forever in our hearts. The music industry is lucky to have had such a talented man. We love you Bobby
November 08, 2003
My sympathies go out to Linda Hatfield and Bobby’s sons and daughter, and to his partner, Bill Medley. The man who had the voice of an angel is now singing with them and probably trying to get them to sing a little “blue-eyed” soul.
November 08, 2003
My thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family of Mr. Hatfield. He lead such an extraordinary life, doing what he loved to do- putting his heart and soul into music- now his voice will be singing with the angels- you will be missed.
November 08, 2003
A great singer, one of the all-time best groups. Saw him in concert around 1987...all my best to his family and Bill Medley.
November 08, 2003
My prayers go out to Bill . He lost his best friend and partner. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bobby's family. My sister and I attended their concert at the Soaring Eagle Casino two years ago and had tickets for the Thursday concert. I grew up with this duo and oh, such a loss.
November 08, 2003
I am still reeling from the absolutely shocking loss of one-half of my all-time favorite duo! Grew up listening to the Righteous Brothers and saw them perform in person many times... Shindig, Where the Action Is, Melodyland Theater in Anaheim, opening for the Beatles, Las Vegas.... Unbelievable loss - he was much too young! My condolences to his family, to Bill and to all of his friends AND fans.
November 08, 2003
My deepest sympathies to Bill Medley and the Hatfield Family and Friends. I was at the January 2003 Concert at Silver Springs, Florida on that chilly day this year and I was elated with hearing the oldies as the Righteous Brothers sang them! I wouldn't have missed it!Your music will be forever in "Rock-n-Roll Heaven!" Unchained Melody" Is so beautiful...I will miss you.
November 08, 2003
'If I knew.......'
If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more.
If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day.
For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything right.
There will always be another day to say our "I love you's", And certainly there's another chance to say our "Anything I can do's?"
But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I'd like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget,
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.
So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day,
That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish.
So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, that you love them very much and you'll always hold them dear.
Take time to say "I'm sorry," "Please forgive me," "thank you," or "it's okay". And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.
November 08, 2003
I was shocked when I heard that Bobby Hatfield had died. I have seen them in concert several times and grew up with their music. Unchained Melody still gives me the chills and I have heard it thousands of times.

My sincere sympathy to his family, Bill Medley and all of his fans. He will be missed.
November 08, 2003
To Bobby Family, to Bill and all the band, Bobby could hit a note that was truly unbeliveable, He was righteous in all ways, God has claimed an unbievable man, now he's up their with the best, and he will always be in our hearts.
God Bless
November 08, 2003
My sympathy to Linda@childern@grandson Luke. We will miss you, I was in fan club 1962. I saw them at Mr. Pips in fla 20 years ago and get to meet them in dressing room. Isee them every year in LV. I just saw them Oct 14th @ again Oct 16th, took pictures. I feel like I loss my friend. Our prayers to Bill@ Paula also. What will I do next year. God Bless.
November 08, 2003
We were lucky enough to see The Righteous Brothers perform several times and shook hands with them after a show a few years ago. They were the kind of performers who made the music of the 60's great! Bobby will be missed by fans around the world. We send our sympathy to those close to him, especially Bill Medley and hope that he will keep Bobby's memory alive.
November 08, 2003
We saw the Righteous Bro. in Vegas back in June. They are our age, and we all showed it. But, they had us jumping and screaming like teenagers. Bobby, you have been with us all our lives and we will surely miss you. God Bless your family in their loss.
November 08, 2003
I first heard "That Loving Feeling" in Dec of 1964 while listening to a contraband radio, while lying in bed during U.S. Army Basic Training at Fort Polk, La. From that time I was hooked. I sought out and was fortunate to have aquired almost all of the righteous brothers/Bill Medley albums ever recorded. Later in Reno NV while attending a conference I met Bobby and Bill after one of Bills shows early in the morning. I played blackjack with them and developed a very brief but meaningful aqaintance. Afterwards I attended most all of their shows at Tahoe or Reno. Each time I saw them in person they would always say hello and although I was just a single fan they made me feel like a friend. Bobby and Bill are classy people and deserve the greatest respect. I want to express to the family and to Bill my personal feeling of loss, and at the same time express my sincere respect for a true gentleman. God Bless you Bobby. Bill, you have many, many fans who will help support you during this tragic time in your life, and after having met you I know you must have a tremendous number of good friends and fans world wide. To Bobby's family, thanks for the support that you must have given him duing all the times he was entertaining us, while away from home, God Bless all of YOU.
November 08, 2003
My dearest Bill,

Your voice and Unchained Melody always reminded me of going to heaven.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SONG I EVER HEARD ANYONE SING ON THIS EARTH.

Love you Bill,

On 10/14/03 while in Vegas on Biz, I was not aware that I was buying my last ticket over a 38 year period of seeing the greatest duo in rock n roll ..I am sad..Jim
November 08, 2003
Traveled to see the Righteous Brothers many times. You will be missed by a whole generation. God Bless you and thanks for the memories of Blue Eyed Soul and old Rock and Roll.
November 08, 2003
Heard you first in Michigan many years ago. So sorry it ended there, too. Went out the day of Bobby's passing and picked up an old vinyl copy of "Two By Two" here in Madrid, Spain. The shopowner, a lifelong music buff I've dealt with for years, flipped over the copy, opened the double album to the portraits and shook his head gravely, "Yes, I know."

The joy of your music will always be with us.

En paz descanse.

William Christison
November 08, 2003
Like so many others, I have laughed, cried and lived my life to your songs.

what a tremendous loss to the many of us who fondly enjoyed the wonderful music and talent of Bobby Hatfield. I had the pleasure of attending many concerts in California and Las Vegas over the years and both Bobby and Bill were my true inspiration. Our hearts are broken and we send love and condolances to both Bobby's family and to Bill Medley.
November 08, 2003
I went to a show years ago and saw you and your partner Medley. You told me " Darlin I have shoes that are older than you" that was a compliment to me coming from you and I will never ever forget you or your music god bless you and I hope to see you in the next word
your fan forever Wendy Smith

We will never forget the wonderful music and times of Bobby Hatfield.
Thank you for making our life and times so much more fun with your music! We will never forget or loose that loving feeling!
November 08, 2003
To the family of Bobby Hatfield and also, Bill Medley.... I am greatful sorry for the terrible loss. All I can say that he was one of the best angelic singers around. My parents had the all time favorite song which was UNCHAINED MEDLEY. Now, I can say that song means a lot right there. I used it for my mom's funeral 8 years ago in March. Now I know better that it is important and the music will on through the memories.
November 08, 2003
We are all saddened by the loss of Bobby. Reading through this Guest Book shows we all feel the same, and in sharing pain it eases that pain. Bobby seems to have made connections with all of us, primarily through his music and performances. We can only imagine how others feel: Linda and Bob's children, Bill, the band members, everyone in his close circle of life. I feel blessed to have 'met' him after a show in June, and to meet again at a show in August. He made me think he remembered me, even though I was just another face in the crowd. He will be remembered.
November 08, 2003
Bobby brought so much inspiration to my life through his music, which will live on in my heart forever. The friendship we shared, I will always hold so dear.
November 08, 2003
Having seen the Righteous Brothers perform over 40 times I am totally devestated by the loss of" my Bobby"My thoughts and prayers go out to his family,Bill and family and all of the friends and fans who truly feel this loss. Having met Bobby in person I have personal knowledge of what a caring person he was, I will miss him greatly. Thanks for the wonderful music an memories. Heaven's Choir just became more Heavenly. Always in My thoughts and prayers. Sleep peacefully Bobby
November 08, 2003
My 14th birthday present was a first row seat to see The Righteous Brothers. That was my first concert ever but one I have never forgotten. That was 38 yrs ago. You touched my heart with your song Bobby Hatfield and you shall never be forgotten.
November 08, 2003
The Rightous Bros. were a wonderful duo. They a such wonderful voices.

My heart goes out to all of Bobby's famly, friends and fans. He will be terrible missed, by all who loved and care for him.

A Great Fan-Kim Dunn
November 08, 2003
If theres a Rock and Roll Heaven, then surly you are there Bobby. The world has lost a great talent.
November 08, 2003
We had hoped to see the Righteous Brothers in concert for several years and finally had the privilege to do so only 2 weeks ago at The Orleans in Las Vegas. The concert was every bit as wonderful as we had imagined it would be. We were able to take several great photos of Bobby and Bill and will cherish them always.

Our prayers and sincere sympathy goes to all of Bobby's family as well as to Bill Medley and the entire band and crew. May God bless each and every one of you.

Bobby, you will be truly missed.
You will NEVER be forgotten!!
November 08, 2003
May God Bless You. Thanks for all the good music and memories. We will never forget you. Godspeed to Bill and the Hatfield family.
November 08, 2003
you will be missed.bobby.god biess your family?
November 08, 2003
thanks for all the great songs
November 08, 2003
I had a lump in my throat yesterday and it is still here today; the kind that you get when you feel like crying because you are in such sorrow and you are trying to hold back the tears. I got that lump in my throat when Elvis died and I have it again because Bobby Hatfield has passed away. They were two legends of rock n’ roll that have affected many people’s lives with their own unique brand of music.

I remember the first time I saw Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley on stage. It was at the Orange County Fair in the summer of 1963. I was only 13 but wow were they exciting to a young girl! Later that year I was thrilled to hear their first record “Little Latin Lupe Lu”. In high school we would wander down to the music store “Blue Note” in Santa Ana where you could listen to the latest records. I purchased all their LP’s and still have them.

I watched them perform many times at “The Hop” which was their club in Fountain Valley. I can close my eyes and listen to “Soul and Inspiration” and see them moving on stage and picture how they would joke with one another during that song much to the entertainment of their audience. During their long career they both have remained “Orange County” guys and we are very proud to call them our own.

My sympathies go out to Linda Hatfield and Bobby’s sons and daughter, and to his partner, Bill Medley. The man who had the voice of an angel is now singing with them and probably trying to get them to sing a little “blue-eyed” soul.

Sincerely,
Carol Beckwith
November 08, 2003

When Bobby and Bill came to Cherokee

Bobby's music will be a blessing to generations yet to come as it has been to us. I have been especially blessed because the Hatfield family gave me so much love and support when we were kids. I will always remember hearing Bobby sing "Chances Are" at a student talent show at Anaheim High in 1958. Several hundred of us saw the future that day.
November 07, 2003

Thank you Bobby for being a part of my life, bring laughter (for the jokes you told me at the Bean Hut), memories (of school at Anaheim High and the dances at the Harmony Park Ballroom when you two were getting 'your chops' together) and all of the great music you created and recorded as a duo. Thanks for the memories. You will be missed. My prayers to your family at this sad time. Via con Dios.

November 07, 2003
Man, I am going to miss Bobby. I grew up listening to the Righteous Brothers. My older brothers practically worshipped them, so I was exposed to them a lot as a kid. I grew up appreciating them very much. I'll keep listening Bobby.
Rest in Peace.
Peace, Holly J Perry
