Musician Paul Revere 1938-2014 Memorial Video

Paul Revere and the Raiders, is an American rock band that saw considerable U.S. mainstream success in the second half of the 1960s and early 1970s. Among their hits were the songs "Kicks" (1966; ranked number 400 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time), "Hungry" (1966), "Him Or Me - What's It Gonna Be?" (1967) and the Platinum-certified classic #1 single "Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)" (1971). Initially based in Boise, Idaho, the Raiders began as an instrumental rock band led by organist and founder Paul Revere Dick (January 7, 1938 in Harvard, Nebraska – October 4, 2014 in Caldwell, Idaho). In 2010 Paul Revere and the Raiders were inducted into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame. Revere announced his retirement from the band in August 2014; the group plans to tour without him as "Paul Revere's Raiders." In October 2014, the band's web site announced that Revere died "peacefully" on October 4, 2014, at his home in Idaho, a "small estate overlooking a tranquil river canyon." He was 76.
