Mark Lindsay is an American musician, best known as the lead singer of the 1960s rock band Paul Revere & the Raiders. He was born in Eugene, Oregon, on March 9, 1942, the son of a country music singer. His father died when he was only four, and his mother remarried soon after. Lindsay has two older sisters and a younger brother. He was raised in Idaho and Washington state.

Lindsay began his musical career in 1958, when he formed a band called the Downbeats with some friends from high school. The Downbeats had some regional success, but they disbanded after a few years. In 1963, Lindsay met Paul Revere Dick, who was looking for a new lead singer for his band, Paul Revere & the Raiders. Lindsay joined the Raiders and they quickly became one of the most popular bands of the 1960s.

The Raiders had a string of hits in the 1960s, including “Kicks” (1966), “Hungry” (1966), and “Good Thing” (1967). They also appeared on several television shows, including “Hullabaloo” and “Shindig!” In 1969, the Raiders released their most successful album, “Midnight Ride.” The album included the hit single “Indian Reservation,” which was written by Lindsay.

After the Raiders disbanded in 1975, Lindsay pursued a solo career. He released several albums in the 1970s and 1980s, but he did not achieve the same level of success as he had with the Raiders. In the 1990s, he reunited with the Raiders for a series of reunion tours.

Lindsay has been married three times. His first marriage, to Cheryl Anderson, ended in divorce. He has two daughters from his second marriage, to Vicki Peterson. He has been married to his third wife, Nicoletta Peccolo, since 2002.

Lindsay has a net worth of $5 million. He continues to tour with the Raiders and perform solo concerts.

2Is retired and working on a live DVD of his final concert performed on in 2003. [September 2004]
3In the late 1970s he turned to music production and, with friend Perry Botkin Jr., recorded disco singles under the aliases "Cake" (Ariola Records-1979) and "The Original Mass" (JDC Records-1981). Their song "Disco Kicks" was a moderate sized hit on the disco dance floors and was later covered by Boystown Gang.
4Attended the Hollywood premiere of Richard Lester's How I Won the War (1967) with TV gossip columnist Rona Barrett. They arrived in a horse drawn carriage. The only problem was that Mark never obtained a "parade permit" from the city of Los Angeles for the horse. Soon after the movie starts, an usher informs Mark that there are police outside waiting to talk to him. He and Barrett escaped out the back of the theatre and never did get to watch the movie!
5Was head of A&R (artists and repertoire) for United Artist Records in the 1970s.
6At different times, he lived in both 10050 Cielo Drive and 8763 Wonderland Avenue, both in Los Angeles. The Ciello Drive home became infamous after actress Sharon Tate and several guests were brutally murdered by followers of Charles Manson on August 8, 1969. The nearby Wonderland house became the site of another famous Hollywood murder when former porn-actor John Holmes and bodyguard Gregory DeWitt Niles took part in the equally horrific murder of four individuals with the encouragement of Eddie Nash, in what was a drug-related homicide on July 1, 1981. The extent of Holmes' involvement in the Wonderland Murders is unclear.
