The fearless leader of one of the top groups ever to capture the loyalties of 16 Magazine readers, Paul Revere was a rock music maestro, a tenacious businessman, and a tireless touring road warrior. For the better part of the 1960s, a pivotal period in rock music, Paul Revere & The Raiders dominated the pages of 16, battling back the British Invasion with an arsenal of rocking records, ferocious live performances, good looks and style. Despite having a more "mature" image than other 16 faves, no one had more fun or injected more zaniness into the exclusive photo sessions that Gloria conducted. Paul's joyful anarchy fit right into 16's crazy cover collages (see examples below.) Paul eventually embraced the role of "Uncle Paul" to newer generations of Raiders and fans. But he never lost the "Spirit of '67" that endeared him and the early Raider lineups to 16 readers. You gave us everything you had in you, Paul. Thanks for the ride.
