Paul Revere Facing Serious Health Issues

After a couple of days of rumors around the internet, former Paul Revere and the Raiders front man Mark Lindsay has confirmed that Revere is having serious medical issues.

In a Monday posting on his Facebook page, Lindsay said:

It now seems, unfortunately, that my old partner Paul Revere – with whom I used to share outrageous wild dreams of being a successful rock & roll band – is now fighting a tremendous heath battle. Please keep Paul and his wife Syd in your thoughts and prayers, as it’s a most difficult time for both of them and the whole Raider family. ~ Mark

Recent reports say that, during Raiders shows, Revere seemed tired and sat through the majority of the show. It is also said that he has either lost his hair or has shaved his head.

Revere, now 75, first formed the basis of the Raiders in 1958 as an instrumental combo called the Downbeats. When they added singer Lindsay, they scored their first minor hit with Like, Long Hair (1961 / #38) but it would take until 1966 when their career took off with top ten songs Kicks, Hungry, Good Thing and Him Or Me, What’s It Gonna Be. They hit number 1 in 1971 with Indian Reservation.
