Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Bill Medley's voice resonates to this day—and his journey through life explains the depth and soul inherent in that voice."—Billy Joel

"I thought I knew Bill Medley, and then I read his book The Time of My Life and realized I knew the singer but I didn't really know the man. If you liked him before you read this book, you will love him after. It is a great read about a special man."—Kenny Rogers

"Bill Medley writes as he sings—with a heart full of soul and inspiration."—Paul Shaffer

Mojo, April 2014
“[A] likeably conversational, anecdotal read.”, 4/9/2014
"A fast-paced read...Like other such memoirs, it should deepen reader’s appreciation for the creation of some of their favorite songs."

Cleveland Music Examiner, 4/8/14
“In his new autobiography, The Time of My Life, singer Bill Medley comes across as an affable, down-to-earth fellow. The kind of guy you’d want to write a song with, have a beer with, and call neighbor.”

My Big Honkin Blog, 4/27/14
“[Medley] delivers on one of the things I love the most about these kind of bios, unique insights and stories from offstage and behind the scenes…While Medley details the ups and downs inherent in any music career, he avoids the formulaic Behind the Music roller coaster and focuses more on the positive. This is a great read for fans of the Righteous Brothers or any music fan.”

Bookviews Blog, May 2014
“Fans of their music will thoroughly enjoy [Medley’s] account of growing up as the son of musicians in Orange County, California, where he recorded his first solo songs on two tape recorders in his living room.”

RockCellarMagazine, 5/6/14
“A fascinating read.”

Record Collector, June 2014
“A righteously good read…[A] page-turner of an autobiography written…in a relaxed, conversational style…The singer is open, honest and genuinely engaging.”

Buffalo News, 5/25/14
“Medley tells about it all—the good times and bad—in a fast-moving, at times very emotional memoir that pulls back the curtain to offer some interesting insights into the world of recorded music.”

Portland Book Review, 5/29/14
“Fans will find [Medley’s] stories about Phil Spector, Brian Wilson, Frank Sinatra and other famous musicians interesting…The style of writing is easy and fun to read.”

The Beat, June 2014
“[Medley] recalls the highs…Nothing is overlooked.”

Life After 50, June 2014
“[A] gripping biography…The tome offers an unvarnished look at Medley’s personal triumphs and tragedies through the filter of five decades of musical, television, motion picture and live-performance success…Riveting.”

Elmore, July/August 2014
“This charming autobiography is remarkably free of ego and vanity. Backstage and offstage, the memories prove entertaining, and often astonishing…An exciting story of youthful luck, the joy of working hard at the right job, and truly creative soul-searching.”

Momzinga blog, 7/2/14
“Very interesting, entertaining, [and] funny…An enjoyable book for everyone to read.”

Book Bit, WTBF Radio, 9/13/14
“I started out as a fan of the Righteous Brothers and Bill Medley the singer, but after reading his book I am a fan of Bill Medley the person.”
