Back in November 2012, Guitar International conducted an interview with Turner, who talked about the rock opera Raiding The Rock Vault, as well as his time in Rainbow. An excerpt from the interview is below:
Q: Your legacy in Rainbow spawned the most video and commercial radio hits for the band. Was that the intent?
A: “That’s was the actual design of it. We were supposed to be more commercial. When Ritchie got me in the band he point blank told me that we were going after a commercial market. Other bands on the label were going that way like DEF LEPPARD, who were getting played on the radio. Ritchie wanted to get played on the radio too. I said then let’s go after their throats; we are going to write songs that are hook, line, and sinker hits. That was mission and we accomplished it.”
