PAUL REVERE & THE RAIDERS guitarist DRAKE LEVIN has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 62.
The Good Thing rocker died on Saturday (04Jul09) at his home in San Francisco, California.
Levin was a member of the Raiders for four years during the band's 1960s heyday.
His efforts on 1965 hit Just Like Me helped shape the Raiders sound - the track features on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s list of 500 Songs That Shaped Rock `n' Roll.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
