Here’s a rocking song to get your head bobbing. Plus it will remind Dave of his time in the slammer.

R.I.P. Paul Revere October 7, 2014

I regret that I never had the pleasure of seeing Paul Revere and the Raiders live, they were excellent showmen.

Paul died today in Idaho after a bout with cancer.

I watched several YouTube videos to get the best one for this post. I like this one with Dick Clark.

 

 

KTVB local news story.

Scott Slant:

Totally off the sports path now, with memories of Paul Revere, who died Saturday at the age of 76 in Garden Valley. When I was a very young music director at KFXD, Paul Revere & The Raiders were Boise’s claim to fame in the rock & roll world, and through all his world travels, he always called Boise home. When the group was about to release a new record, Revere would ride his chopper out to KFXD’s old studios on Amity Road south of Meridian and bring us a test pressing. So it was in January of 1971, when it had been a couple years since the Raiders had a hit. Revere was excited about this new release, which had “Birds of a Feather” on one side and “Indian Reservation” on the other.

Revere thought “Birds of a Feather” had a chance to be a smash. He asked me to play both sides of the record on my show that night and take votes from listeners. So I did—and “Indian Reservation” was the winner by a 3-to-1 margin. The song went right onto KFXD’s playlist, and it shot to No. 1 locally. Revere then embarked on a city-by-city tour with close Boise friend Mike Allen on their choppers and visited radio stations to promote “Indian Reservation,” and about five months after its debut on KFXD, the song was No. 1 in the nation, the group’s only million-selling single. Revere made sure KFXD was awarded a certified gold record for its efforts. He was one of the best businessmen in showbiz, parlaying Paul Revere & The Raiders’ popularity into over four more decades of crowd-pleasing entertainment—he didn’t retire until this spring.

Some of you know that I’m doing the lighting for West Side Story at my local theater.

Here’s my favorite scene from the movie:

OK Michael… It’s ON.
