Written by esteemed Grammy Award-winning record producer David Kershenbaum (Joe Jackson, Tracy Chapman, Supertramp) and musician, producer and vocalist John Payne (Asia), “RAIDING THE ROCK VAULT” was born to give audiences an illuminating look at the history of rock and for those who lived it, an exciting trip down memory lane.
