Wow. I remember the Raiders’ wacky Colonial outfits with the three-cornered hats, and their smiling faces. We used to groove along with them on the TV show “Where the Action Is.”
Their music was uplifting and had a great beat; it boosted your mood and made you tap your feet.
And I still remember the lyrics to their biggest hits… Have been singing “Kicks,” “Hungry” and “Good Thing” for days since I read the sad news.
It’s distressing to see a generation of legendary rock stars reach their late 70s and start to pass away, although a lot of the great ones – like Paul Revere – loved performing and continued til the end of their lives.
The music men may be gone, but their songs – and the youthful “feel-good” memories they evoke — live on.
