It was a Mark Lindsay record, I produced it and I usually didn't produce myself, Jerry Fuller did, and when I got through with the record Jack Gold said, 'Why don't you put it out as the Raiders, you produce the Raiders and they need a hit. ' So we put it under the name of the Raiders and it became the biggest selling hit in the history of CBS records. "Any regrets for calling the band Paul Revere? (Keyboardist Paul Revere Dick continued to tour without Mark using the Raiders name)"In the beginning, monster beats by dre studio way back to the beginning before we got on CBS, we signed our first record contract on a little label called Gardena and the owner said, 'You got to sign the contract and sign your full legal name, ' so my full legal name is Mark Allen Lindsay and I signed my name and then everybody else signed their name and Paul's name was signed Paul Revere Dick, that was his full name. Then he looked over at us and said, 'Paul Revere... Paul Revere, Paul Revere, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait... a... minute! That's a great gimmick. I mean the Downbeats are okay but Paul Revere now that's a hook. Everybody knows Paul Revere's ride come on. ' "Yea, I did hear that you were working on a book. As a matter of fact my first book was monster beats By Dr. Dre Headphones released recently - it's called Check the Gs -The True Story of an Eclectic American Family and Their Wacky Family Business. How far are you along in your story? "Well you know I'm almost done, I've written it and rewritten it three or more times and I've been working on it for 10-15 years. But what happens is every time I get almost finished, I start reading it and I say no, no, no, that's not the way it really happened, I'm trying to make myself look too good here, this isn't really real. So I go back and write what really happened without really stretching the fabric over the real stuff you know? So as I've done that several times and maybe as I get a little older I get a little more honest with myself. So I'm really getting close to the truth now and the truth reads better than fiction. " "Well, we were the American Revolution. "And you wore that que or ponytail. "And you know I wish the heck that I had put a Copyright on that because just think how many Hell's Angels would have been paying royalties right now. "Are you still sporting the ponytail (que) or is it a thing of the past? "It's come and gone about four different times. I've grown it and cut it off. Right now I don't have it, I cut it off about three years ago but who knows I may start growing it back again, it comes and goes. "I wanted to ask you about a song you did in 1966 called "Little Girl in the 4th Row" from The Midnight Ride album, was there actually a girl in the fourth row that you were singing about? "Being on tour and you look out at the audience and there'd be this babe, you know? But you know that there was no way in the world that you'd ever be able to meet her, you can see her out there, but like as soon as the show was www.cheapsmonsterbeatss.com over BAM -you were on a bus or a limo or whatever to the airport or wherever you were going and never stick around, so it was kind of like one of those things. Then Mark began to sing some of the lyrics to the song, "Maybe someday you'll be closer than four rows away.
