Paul Revere, frontman of the 1960s rock band Paul Revere and the Raiders, died Saturday at his home in Idaho at age 76, according to the band’s website.
The organist and his rock group recorded a string of hits including “Kicks,” “Hungry” and “Indian Reservation.” The group paid tribute to Revere with a heartfelt open letter on the site composed by “everyone who has ever met” him.
“Generous to a fault with your family, your friends and your band, there seemed to be no limit to your kindness,” the letter said.
“We are all blessed to have known you, and we’ll miss you more than you could ever know,” the letter continued.
Revere was often called “The Last Madman of Rock n’ Roll” because of his raucous sense of humor and Revolutionary War-style costumes.
