NO one does this song like he does........

Thanks for the video. It's been a while since I've heard this. A nice break in my day....

Glad you had a good trip. It sounds like a great room to stay in, even if he died there. What an interesting fact!

Good song indeed.
It's hard to understand the risk that entertainers take with their own lives.

Not only does no one sing a song like he does, no one but you would find out the trivial facts of their hotel the way you did. Cool story and a great conversation starter, if you could ever casually work it into a conversation.

So did anything weird or creepy happen while you were there??

Thanks for posting this video. I SO appreciate the way he sang it. That's exactly how I would do it (if I could sing it as well as he does) for my best friend, my husband, the love of my life.. and Bobby is doing it for me. I think the American Idol Generation only sings for its mega-seat grandstand/arena audience and they lose a ton of personal contact with music lovers because of that. What do you think?

Jerry ~ This blog post of your does nothing for me except to PROVE how old I am!... but the truth is I used to go see the Righteous Brothers at the Rendezvous Ballroom in Newport Beach back in the early '60's. I also used to catch both Bill and Bobbie in the wee hours at a coffee shop in Santa Ana. Bill was always easy to spot from his 1960’s Red Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gull-Wing coupe. There weren’t a whole lot of those cars hanging out in the 24 hour coffee shops at 17th and Bristol Streets back in those days. They were both good ol’ Orange County boys who made it big. Thanks for the memories! ~ jb///
P.S. The space occupied by the old Rendezvous Ballroom is now an apartment building and the old “Prison of Socrates” right around the corner from the Rendezvous (where I used to see Jose Feliciano live) is now a pizza parlor. I went there last year with my kids and grandkids and told them about my days growing up in Orange County, CA.

Very good Jerry and I'm glad there were no 'high voiced' ghosts to keep you awake. The guys in the reunion probably couldn't have heard anything that high anyway. I know I can't anymore.

Jerry, you really are "Back Home Again!" Welcome back, things were slow around here while you were gone, you didn't miss anything. Glad you found that spot of death, that is worth spending some time there!

Blue eyed soul music..

" You remember the Righteous Bros? Yeah.

The one with the high voice?. Yeah.

Well, he died somewhere in this room. Probably on that bed or in that bathroom."

I can so see you doing that. Were you singing "You've Lost That Living Feeling"?

Wow some folks never get this close to greatness! ;)

... wow, that's cool..... not that he died, of course, but that you guys were there... as for that song, it breaks my heart every time I hear it.... rock & roll heaven, indeed!...

Hey Jerry, I'm glad you guys had a good time. Which one of you played chaperone? :-)
I was ready to ask you if you found out which room Bobby died in, then before long you had already answered my question.
Are you ready for a full disclosure law or regulation for hotels? After reading this I surely am. Texas has this law concerning the sale of a person's home.
BTW, before I was ever married I slept in a room where someone had died. Some of the time I could forget but not always. I still remember, that was over fifty years ago.
