ALL ACCESS Rock Editor KEN ANTHONY did an exclusive 10 Questions interview with RIGHT ARM ENTERTAINMENT's Co-Pres. and Founder DEL WILLIAMS and Co-Pres. GARY SPIVACK. WILLIAMS spoke about the origins of ROCK ON THE RANGE, "This is the seventh year for ROTR. The genesis of the concept for ROTR was a conversation that DANNY WIMMER (AEG) and I had while on a road trip in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. We felt that there was a huge void for a Rock festival in the heart of AMERICA. We came back from that trip and discussed with GARY (SPIVACK) and put together a plan to action. It was a great story of seeing your vision to fruition and having the courage to follow your gut."
SPIVACK told ALL ACCESS, "ROTR is now a full three-day multi-stage destination festival that's truly a gathering of the rock tribe. The fans, who dubbed themselves The Rangers, are really one of a kind. Makes us feel so humbled and proud to wave the rock 'n' roll flag 365 days a year. ROTR draws from all over the world. Though its home is COLUMBUS over 70% of ticket sales are from outside the COLUMBUS area."
