Dick Dodd, lead singer...

...and drummer for the Standells, a California garage band, died at age 68. From his obit in the Times:

He began his entertainment career at 9 as a Mouseketeer on the original “Mickey Mouse Club” television show. He said he bought his first snare drum and cymbals from his fellow Mouseketeer Annette Funicello. 

When "Dirty Water" was released in 1966, neither Mr. Dodd nor any of the other members of the Standells had ever visited Boston.
