Righteous Brother Hatfield Dies

RIGHTEOUS BROTHER BOBBY HATFIELD has died aged 63, just hours before he was due to play a concert.

The YOU'VE LOST THAT LOVING FEELING star, who formed a chart topping duo with BILL MEDLEY, was found in his Kalamazoo, Michigan hotel room last night (05NOV03) having died of undetermined causes, acording to his manager DAVID COHEN.

Hatfield's body was discovered at the RADISSON PLAZA HOTEL half an hour before he was due to perform with Medley at the MILLER AUDITORIUM on the WESTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY campus.

Cohen has stated, "It's a shock, a real shock," adding that Medley was, "Broken up. He's not even coherent."

The Brothers had a string of hits in the sixties including LITTLE LATIN LUPE LU and EBB TIDE, before splitting in 1968.

They later reformed in 1974 and scored a hit with ROCK AND ROLL HEAVEN, before rising to prominence again in the early nineties when hit film GHOST prominently featured one of their best known songs UNCHAINED MELODY.
