With a title like ‘Live to Rock’ what else could the second single from Rich Layton & Tough Town’s new album ‘Salvation Road‘ be other than anthemic? Amongst soaring vocals and pounding drums take the time to note the presence of Chris Mercer the legendary British saxophonist who began his career with John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers way back in 1967. As Rich has noted “Being in the studio while Chris played turned into a really emotional moment for me.

Realizing that I grew up to become a small part of this amazing rock and roll tapestry just blew me away.”
