Paul Revere Has Died At 76
Most of you who come to this page probably don't know who Paul Revere (not the historical/mythical figure) was, but he and his band The Raiders were pretty hot stuff back in the mid to late '60s. They were vaguely punk-y what with great pop songs such as "Good Times", "Just Like Me", "Hungry", "Steppin' Out", "Just Like Me", and "Him Or Me--What's It Gonna Be?", and were pretty influential on me when I was just a wee tyke first getting into rock music. For two or three years they were outsold only by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones as far as record sales in America. But sales aside, they made some great music and I am sad that yet another major figure from the greatest era in rock music has passed away.
