Yesterday:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Paul Revere, the organist and leader of the Raiders rock band, has died. He was 76.

Roger Hart, manager for Paul Revere and the Raiders, said he died Saturday at his home in Garden Valley, Idaho, from cancer. Revere was born in Harvard, Nebraska, Hart said.

"He'd been quiet about it for some time," Hart said. "Treated at the Mayo Clinic, Paul stayed on the road as long as he could, then retired recently back to Idaho, where he and his wife, Sydney, always kept a home."

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

Paul Revere and the Raiders were usually lumpped with the British Invasion acts (or US answer to), but they had a hit record in 1961, a year before the Rolling Stones were formed.

Paul Revere & The Raiders "Hungry" Mono 1966 Columbia 45

Aggressive and fuzzy pop excellence..

If only more 'folk' music could sound as good as that...

RIP. I and my friends used to jive to "Like Long Hair" on the old Top Rank label around 1961. It was overshadowed by "Nut Rocker". Happy Days.

We three teenage sisters used to get home from school and immediately turn on "Where the Action Is." I don't think I appreciated some of the the band's music until a bit later. The costumes seemed a bit silly to us and we were of the ilk that found antics a distraction in a band. Nonetheless, takes me back.

RIP and thanks for the memories.

I used to watch them on TV in Los Angeles on program, "Where the Action Is."
They were so popular in those years. I was just a young, young girl but liked their songs. I read that Paul Revere was actually still performing earlier this year even though it was becoming increasingly difficult for him due to his poor health situation.
Not sure if all the other original members are still living or not. I know the line up changed over the years.

RIP, Paul Revere Dick.

Paul Revere & The Raiders were very popular during the 60's, especially when they were on the show, as mentioned on other posts, "Where the Action Is" in L.A., California.
I was curious how big they were elsewhere, in UK or Australia and other parts of the world?

Anyone who lives in other countries and remembers this group, I would like to know if they were very popular elsewhere (other then in USA?)

I used to really like their song, "Kicks" a lot.
