Paul Revere and the Raiders are among the 1960s legends whose music helps power Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood.
Lead singer Mark Lindsay is excited that four of his band's songs were used by Quentin Tarantino, a filmmaker who knows his music.
"There's four songs in the movie, one of which is... well, I won't tell you which one, but one... one is not on the soundtrack [album], but it's in the movie, so. It was pretty amazing to get four songs in a Quentin Tarantino movie, I must say."
Mark Lindsay says Quentin Tarantino is a master of blending music into a movie:
"It is a great honor... I was blown away. There is certainly a nod to Paul Revere and the Raiders, several, in the movie. It's amazing to me that he would do that. There's a lot of music... I have to say that Tarantino obviously really, really thought this movie about this. Each piece of music is dovetailed into the scene that it appears in. Whether it's on the screen for four seconds or 40 seconds, it all works."
Lindsay is also pleased that he and Terry Melcher -- the Raiders' producer who once lived in the house where the Manson family murders took place -- tie into a pivotal and powerful scene.
"Terry and i actually lived there togerther; we split the lease. There's a scene where you see Abigail Folger playing the piano and we had a piece of sheet music that John Phillips brought up to Terry and I when we were still living there, called 'Straight Shooter.' It's one of his pieces of music. And when we left, it was left in the piano bench and apparently, it was on the piano that night."
