The Righteous Brothers had a number of hits during the 1960s including two that reached number one, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” and “Soul & Inspiration.”
The Righteous Brothers disbanded during 1968 but reunited during 1974. Their first coneback single was “Rock and Roll Heaven.” Released March 24, 1974, it became a big hit reaching number three on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
It was a mid-tempo tune that was a tribute to deceased music stars. It struck a chord with the record buying public.
The Righteous Brothers would continue to perform together until Hatfield’s death during 2003, the same year they were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.
