Phil "Fang" Volk

Phil "Fang" Volk, original core member and bass player for the legendary 60's rock group PAUL REVERE AND THE RAIDERS has been playing music continually for the past 5 decades. During the Raider days, he was associated with 7 Gold albums and 12 Hit Singles. The Raiders hold the world record for more television airings in the decade of the 60's than any other rock band in history - with over 750 performances. Fang was one of the stars of Dick Clark's "WHERE THE ACTION IS" that racked up over 520 episodes over a two and a half year period. After Fang left the band in 1967 with two fellow Raiders, Drake Levin and Mike "Smitty" Smith, they formed the critically acclaimed group that was signed to RCA Victor called BROTHERHOOD, releasing 3 albums. Following Brotherhood, Fang was hired by Ricky Nelson to join the STONE CANYON BAND that made TV appearances on such legendary shows such as: THE JOHNNY CASH SHOW and THE EVERLY BROTHERS SHOW. During the Raider days, Fang had the privilege of appearing on THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW and THE TONIGHT SHOW with JOHNNY CARSON. The Raiders even filmed an episode of BATMAN! Phil "Fang" Volk recently put out a tribute album to his old band entitled: FANG REVERES THE RAIDERS, which is also available right here on CD Baby.
