He was a 1960's rocker with a gimmick. Playing off his first and middle names, his group dressed in Revolutionary War era costumes and called themselves "Paul Revere and the Raiders."
Paul Revere Dick was born in Nebraska and got his start playing gigs in Idaho and Oregon.
His group "the Raiders" was a staple on a popular late afternoon ABC-TV music show called "Where the Action Is"…and that's where they previewed songs that became major hits.
Featuring singer Mark Lindsay…
…Paul Revere and the Raiders hit the charts with "Good Thing"
…and "Hungry", "Indian reservation" and "Him or Me" were among the band's other hits.
Revere credited Dick Clark for helping him hit the big time
The group also appeared on the "Batman" TV show, in a segment featuring Burgess Meredith as "The Penguin".
The band kept playing, although Lindsay and other members dropped out of the group.
