This famous song is a truly inspirational piece of music. It was performed by just one of the Brothers – Bobby Hatfield. Sadly he passed away in 2003. This video is perhaps the finest performance of the song. They adopted their name in 1962 while performing together in the Los Angeles area. At the end of one particular performance, a U.S. Marine in the audience shouted, “That was righteous, brothers!”, prompting the pair to adopt the name when they embarked on a career as a duo.
