MARK LINDSAY
Interview By: Ginger Coyote
I have been a long time fan of Mark Lindsay... I remember buying 16 Magazine just to look at him... He was the cats meow!! When I was offered the chance to interview the legend. I jumped at the chance.... Please enjoy my interview with him!!
Punk Globe:
Thank you so much for doing the interview. I have heard “Like Nothing That You’ve Seen,” and I am quite impressed. Is this a song that you wrote?
MARK LINDSAY:
I co-wrote the song with Gar Francis. Here is a link for the song on CD Baby http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/marklindsay3
Punk Globe:
I understand that you were asked to play saxophone on a Doughboys album "Shakin' Our Souls" tell us about that?
MARK LINDSAY:
Apparently Gar asked Kurt Reil from the Grip Weeds if he knew anybody who could play sax on a tune the Doughboys were working on, and I got the gig.
Punk Globe:
Are you just playing sax on the track "It's a Crying Shame"?
MARK LINDSAY:
I played baritone, tenor, and alto sax on Cryin' Shame.
Punk Globe:
Are you also singing backup on the song?
MARK LINDSAY:
Yes, I am

Punk Globe:
How long have you played saxophone for? Did you ever play it on any of The Paul Revere and The Raiders" tracks?
MARK LINDSAY:
I bought my first Selmer Mark VI when I was 16, and yes, I play bariione and tenor on various Raider tunes, including Just Like Me, Hungry, and Melody For An Unknown Girl.
Punk Globe:
I loved Paul Revere and The Raiders... Tell us what got you back into the studio to record the new Mark Lindsay album?
MARK LINDSAY:
Gar and I started writing some good tunes and it seemed a shame not to record them.
Punk Globe:
Any launch date for the single "Like Nothing That You've Seen"?

Yes they are all on it.
Punk Globe:
Describe yourself in three words?
MARK LINDSAY:
Trying to progress
Punk Globe:
My good pal Storm Large mentioned that she had seen you walking around in Portland Oregon every once in awhile. Are you still living there?
MARK LINDSAY:
No, I am based in Florida now but travel full time.
Punk Globe:
You were Eugene Oregon right?
MARK LINDSAY:
I was born in Eugene but grew up in Idaho.
Punk Globe:
Tell us about forming Paul Revere and The Raiders?
MARK LINDSAY:
It was a long process that took years, you'll have to wait for the book!
Punk Globe:
How did you enjoy being on "Where The Action Is?"
MARK LINDSAY:
It was an incredible experience. I now hold the record for the most network television appearances for an American rock and roll singer.

MARK LINDSAY:
Yes, Terry and I shared the Cielo Drive house.
Punk Globe:
Back to the music which song by The Raiders is your favorite.
MARK LINDSAY:
It's hard to pick a favorite. They're kind of like pets...you just love them all equally.

MARK LINDSAY:
Yes, three solo albums and many national commercials, including ones for Pontiac and Yamaha.

No, although I learned a lot from doing the show, and I gained even more respect for radio deejays.

I'll be rolling through the US on the Happy Together tour this summer, releasing an album or two, and hopefully having much success
