Drake Levin, lead guitar player for Paul Revere and the Raiders passed at 62 yesterday. The following was his finest hour.

Never heard that one before. Boy that sounds a lot like Dave Davies.

Hard to say. Just Like Me was recorded in 1966. Pretty close time frame. The solo on the song was one of the first double tracked solos done. Things were still pretty low tech in 1966.

Not a huge Germs fan, but I still find it noteworthy that Paul Revere and the Raiders' Mark Lindsay was the band's fall-back choice to produce their one and only studio album, after David Bowie.

They got neither, of course, and had to settle for Joan Jett.

Thanks, Az! Enjoyed seeing that.

Pat Benatar did a cover of that tune in the early eighties.

I'm not a rock historian like my brother, but I know Paul Revere and the Raiders did that song "Cherokee People!"

You kids can start laughing now. I was a kid then- graduated from high school in 1965. That was the music of my youth. As I recall their biggest hit was a song called "One Is The Loneliest Number".

I wasn't a music guy but I'll bet AZ has some memories to share.

When it is so cold that you need 3 dogs to keep you warm out in the woods.
