In 1966 Dick Dodd was the drummer for the Standells and had a national hit with Dirty Water, who's lyric line "Boston you're my home" made it a hit at Sox games and in Boston as an unofficial theme song. You hear it in your head, don't you?

 

Last Friday, Dick went down hard and died of stage 4 cancer of the esophagus, spleen, liver and spine at the age of 68.

 

In 1954, at the age of 9, Dick Dodd became a Mouseketeer for Disney on The Mickey Mouse Club. In the early 60s he was doing Surf-Rock and was a dancer in the movie Bye Bye Birdie. Thanks for your pioneering of music Dick. Listen to Dirty Water
