The Resume

    (August 10, 1940-November 5, 2003)
    Born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
    Member of the Righteous Brothers
    Solo recorded the single 'Hang Ups' (1968) and album 'Messin in Muscle Shoals' (1970)

Why he might be annoying:

    He had even less solo success than fellow Righteous Brother Bill Medley.
    He died from a cocaine overdose.
    The British tabloid The Sun reported his death under the headline, 'You've Lost That Livin' Feeling.'

Why he might not be annoying:

    His high tenor perfectly complemented Medley's baritone.
    He raised money for lupus, which his wife suffered from.
    He good-naturedly appeared in an epsiode of Cheers where Rebecca gushes, 'To me, you'll always be the other Righteous Brother.'
    The Righteous Brothers were supposed to start a tour the night he died.
