GOLDBIT: Bobby Hatfield, out of the Righteous Brothers, has been found dead in his hotel room at the age of 63. Bill Medley, the other Brother (he wasn't really his brother), is said to be broken up and incoherent at the news. The band had been inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, mainly on the strength of their two big hits, You've Lost That Loving Feeling and Unchained Melody. The band had split up in the sixties, but reunited in 1974 for the now irony-titled Rock and Roll Heaven and had been an on-off affair ever since. You've Lost That Loving Feeling is popularly cited as the most-played record in radio history, although judging by how Capital have been pushing Beyonce's latest we're not sure that its a record they'll be holidng for much longer.
