'INTRODUCING THE Rocdoc' - is Rocdoc's first album of songs performed throughout the country during 3 years of touring (mostly in NYC, the northeast, and Texas), tried and true tunes, which never failed to reach kids. All songs are topical, but the lyrics are edgy, funny and all tunes, pretty much rock with tight instrumentals. As the Rocdoc once said 'When I was 9 years old I wasn't listening to Sesame street, I was listening to Led Zeppelin !!!!
