EPISODE 2.08: John Gallagher of Raven on Extermination, crowdfunding, and selling t-shirts instead of CDs

Posted on Dec 3, 2015 in Season 2

“We’re in a position now where we can actually make more money with what we do then when we were ‘really’ making money.” – John Gallagher, Raven

John Gallagher, singer and bass player for legendary metal band Raven, co-pioneered the «New Wave of British Heavy Metal» in the 70s and 80s. The band still kicks it hard on stage with their athletic rock style and the guys are great people and very approachable for their fans.

We met with John during Raven’s Extermination European Tour and talked about their crowdfunding campaign for their new album, Party Killers, artistic freedom, and the new music business model. And if you ever have to chance to check out Raven live, you should. I assure you, it’s worthwhile.
