Band leader Paul Revere dies aged 76
Paul Revere, best known for fronting the band Paul Revere And The Raiders, died on Saturday (October 4th) at the age of 76.
Revere passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer, passing away peacefully at his home in Idaho.
Revere was frontman for the band, which often performed in three-cornered hats and wore other clothing harking back to the days of the Ameican Revolution. The Raiders were best known for their hits 'Kicks', 'Hungry' and 'Indian Reservation', which reached Number One in the US in 1971.
A lengthy tribute to Revere has been posted on the band's official website, part of which reads: "The world will be a lot less fun, a lot less kind and gentle without Paul Revere in it. Your larger-than-life absence will leave a void in our hearts and our lives. We are all blessed to have known you, and we'll miss you more than you could ever know."
