Michael Riddle (guitar, vocals), Jon Hampton (bass) and Ronnie Montrose back in 1984 shaped a lifelong bond as well as a congruent musical collaboration. The results of that potent partnership are evident in their debut release “Raw”… Joining MAXX12 in the studio this time around is Aaron Leigh (Echo of Souls, Frank Hannon Band) at the helm providing his production prowess.
