Raven was formed in 1974 in Newcastle, England, by brothers John Gallagher and Mark Gallagher and Paul Bowden. The band recorded and toured until 2001, when a wall collapsed on guitarist Mark Gallagher, crushing his legs. Raven went on hiatus for nearly 5 years, from 2001–2006, while the guitarist rehabilitated, though Raven never officially disbanded. Now the band is back on the road in support of their Rock Until You Drop – A Long Day’s Journey DVD.
