Goner Message Board / ???? / Paul Revere & The Raiders' lead guitar player- Drake "The Kid " Levin RIP
Posted: Jul 5, 2009 7:38 am
After a lenghty battle with cancer, Paul Revere & The Raiders' lead guitar player- Drake "The Kid " Levin - died this morning, July 4th with his beloved wife Sandra at his side. He was 61. You can email your condolences for Drake and Sandra Levin at: raiderdrakelevin@yahoo.com It's so ironic that Drake Levin died on the 4th of July considering the patriotic name of the band he was in. For a story on Drake's passing, hit the link below. Some people may find it hard to believe, but there was a time Paul Revere & The Raiders could not be touched, putting out hit after hit. They were the first rock & roll band ever signed to Columbia Records and made it big when they became the house-band on Dick Clark's Where The Action Is TV show that appeared on weekday afternoons.

I've ripped off Paul Revere and the Raiders more than any other band out there I think. The doubled solo on Just Like Me RULEZ!!! RIP

PR & the Raiders were huge - on TV EVERY DAY during the week at their peak. Drake was there during the glory years.

And, the original band did play on the records. The session guys came later.
