(Vocal duo, 1962–68, 1974–2003)

Bill Medley and the late Bobby Hatfield struck gold in 1965 with ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’’, a simple song inflated by producer Phil Spector’s trademark ‘Wall of Sound’. Another year of hits in the same vein closed with Medley going solo. A reunion with Hatfield spawned a US-only smash, 1974’s ‘Rock And Roll Heaven’. In 1990, a re-release of 1965’s ‘Unchained Melody’ – featured in the movie Ghost – topped the UK chart, and ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’’ made the Top 10 for the third time.
