Rock musician Paul Revere, known for his outlandish costumes and enthusiastic stage persona passed away Saturday in Idaho.
He was born Paul Revere Dick in 1938 in Nebraska and later came to Boise and Caldwell. He was a teenager in the 50s with a love of music. He started his first band, the Downbeats, which eventually became Paul Revere and the Raiders.
The group became the house band for the Dick Clark TV show “Where the Action Is,” and appeared on Johnny Carson, Ed Sullivan and The Smothers Brothers.
