Beautiful beautiful memories of Terry Melcher I will always have. His music, particularly his producing and cowriting with Paul Revere and the Raiders is on my top played cd list even today.
You are forever a star in rock and roll heaven!

I'm very saddened by the news of Terry's passing. The music industry has lost one of its great pioneers of rock and roll. He painted pictures with sound and left behind a very impressive body of work, not the least of which is the long hit list of Paul Revere & the Raiders. It's appalling that the media finds it necessary to downplay the importance of Terry's masterful contribution to the Raider legacy. (Don't mess with history, you bastards!) The 16 hit singles and 7 gold albums is not only a stellar acheivement by one of the best producers of the era, but also worthy of proper and respectful documentation by the media at this time of sorrow and remembrance. I'm proud to have called Terry my freind. He'll always be my mentor and role model as a producer who showed me the sound spectrum as I've never SEEN it before. Yes, that's right! He could visualize the sonic spectrum, layered & stacked on a transparent screen between the speakers like floating balloons in a 3-d movie. He was awesome! I'll long remember the powerful influence he had on me and on my bass playing. He will truly be missed. May God rest his soul...My sincerest condolences to his wife and child, and his mother Doris Day. I'm sure they're devastated. I'm so sorry for your loss.

A friend & fellow musician,
Phil "Fang" Volk
original bass player, Paul Revere & the Raiders

Very sensitive comments. We're also talking about Terry on the Doris Day web forum if anyone wants to contribute:
