PostSubject: Paul Revere Dies   Mon Oct 06, 2014 7:37 am

He was known as "the madman of rock and roll"

Paul Revere, the organist and leader of the Paul Revere and the Raiders rock band, has died. He was 76.

Manager Roger Hart says Revere died Saturday at his home in Idaho. No other details were provided.

Revere, born Paul Revere Dick, became known as "the madman of rock and roll" for his theatrical colonial wardrobe and infectious stage persona with the band.

The group launched its career in 1963 with a popular rendition of Richard Berry's "Louie, Louie" before releasing its own hits like "Kicks," ''Hungry" and "Good Thing." The band's biggest hit arrived in 1971 with "Indian Reservation."
Revere and the Raiders served as the house band for the Dick Clark TV show Where the Action Is.
Revere remained a constant presence with the group for almost five decades.

Since they were popular on the Dick Clark show some twenty years before you were born, I can certainly understand that...

"Kicks."  Maybe the first anti-drug song?  This is from about 1967, and one thing that really surprised me was seeing the guy with the double-neck guitar.  I thought that was a mid-'70s thing.
