PAUL REVERE: Dead at 76
The self-proclaimed “Rock and Roll Madman” died Saturday at the age of 76.
Paul Revere, the self-proclaimed “Rock and Roll Madman,” died Saturday at his home in Idaho. He was 76. In August, after briefly returning from a medical leave, the Nebraska native retired from the band he founded more than 50 years ago. The cause of death was not immediately revealed.
Paul Revere and the Raiders were a powerful chart force in the 1960s, racking up hits like “Kicks,” “Hungry,” “Good Thing,” “Just Like Me” and “Him or Me — What’s It Gonna Be?” Revere, who played keyboards and led the clowning, left the singing to Mark Lindsay, but it was always his band, and he remained its only constant member.
