Default RIP Paul Revere

The world of classic rock music has lost another icon today. Paul Revere, entertainer, singer, musician, bandleader, friend, husband, father and grand man of show business died Oct. 4, 2014 at the age of 76. The news of Revere’s passing came via a post on his band’s official Facebook page tonight.

In August, 2013, Revere shared the news of his battle with cancer with over 100,000 fans on his band’s Facebook page. A wellspring of support, love, prayers and well wishes ensued on his Facebook page, exemplary of the true devotion with which music lovers and Baby Boomers alike held the legend Paul Revere Dick (his real name), born on Jan. 7, 1938.

In the past year, although fans had known that Paul was battling cancer, everyone had prayed, hoped, and shared that they were all counting on Paul to get better. Although it was not widely known by the fans, when Paul made his final stage appearances, it represented such a magnitude and level of courage to still get out there and literally “gave everything he had” to bring the crowd what they came to see—a truly good time.<snip>

I never too far into his catalog, but I still have a burned copy of his greatest hits. RIP.

I was so bummed when I read about this last night.

(Also not sure if anyone's made a thread yet but Lynsey DePaul passed away a couple days ago from a brain hemorrhage.)

What a terrible year.

What a shame. One of the first 45s I ever bought was by Paul Revere and the Raiders. I think it was "The Great Airplane Strike"/"In My Community"...

Steppin Out is one of the best pop songs that highlights what was going on in the 60s.
I loved all those top 40 hits that the band cranked out!
