Paul Revere, who led the band Paul Revere and the Raiders to a string of Top 10 hits in the '60s, is ailing, according to the group's singer Mark Lindsay.

Earlier this week, I noticed a post that former Paul Revere and the Raiders lead sing, Mark Lindsay, posted on his Facebook page. It seems that his long time friend and co-founder of the group, Paul Revere, is in very poor health. Lindsay's post:

"It now seems, unfortunately, that my old partner Paul Revere – with whom I used to share outrageous wild dreams of being a successful rock 'n' roll band – is now fighting a tremendous heath battle.

Revere first formed the Raiders in Boise as an instrumental group called the Downbeats. By early 1961, they scored their first Top 40 single, 'Like, Long Hair.' In 1965, they had the first of their five Top 10 hits, 'Kicks.' In 1971, after shortening their name to the Raiders, the group reached No. 1 for the only time with 'Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian).'

Paul Revere, the only remaining original member of the group tours almost non-stop and has for decades. Paul and the group have always stuck to the original formula of great songs and fun shows.

In his Facebook post, Lindsay added:

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
