TONY MILLS Posts Heartbreaking News For Fans

Artist: 
Categories: 
 
British singer/frontman TONY MILLS has terminal cancer. MR wishes Tony all the best and hopes he stays strong for as long as possible. He is one of the good guys.
He posted the following overnight on his FB page:
 
Cancer.
Not only my birth sign, but now also my fate.
Recently diagnosed, but far too late. I have suffered since the end of last year, shortly after a car crash before Christmas, which halted my digestive system and left me with internal pain that was difficult to isolate or fully understand.
Various hospital visits found nothing from tests until I took myself to a private clinic in Oslo, where the doctor decided I was too unwell for normal scopes and I was scanned the following day.
A tumour too old and large to be removable had been growing inside me for a year or so and was the cause of all my problems. It seems to me that the car crash definitely accelerated the growth and/or effects of this entity, otherwise I may still not even be aware of it. So, that's that.
Standing back from this for a moment, to look at my ensuing album release, I am grateful to the people around me that have been involved with my latest album, 'Beyond the Law', that will very obviously be my last written work as an artist.
The timing was nothing short of a relief. I am glad it got finished in time.
Certainly not least my wife Linda, Pete Newdeck, Tommy Denander, Toine Vanderlinden, Josh 'Tabbie' Williams, Tony Forsythe and Chris Aldridge on the studio level and Pete Kotevski from Battlegod Productions Jon Løvstad, Alex Cooper, Avalon Music and Ivan Gunn for artistic support, finance and logistics.
The record is delayed slightly, until June to help the different territories release simultaneously and assist the record in some success.
I was planning a thirty year anthology of solo material next year (1990-2020);
I have spoken to some of my colleagues and they may well organise that.
WIth regard to what will happen in the short term, I don't intend to do a lot; I gave up travelling after touring Spain three years ago, as I found it too tiring and it just felt like it was time to withdraw from such a public existence and get out of the spotlight. I have been a live performer in one fashion or another since 1978 and though many rockers paint the wrinkles and endeavour to recreate their long lost talents, that never interested me; I was always a believer in moving over for the youngsters and giving them their rightful opportunities while they were young and fit enough to do it with the energy that it requires.
I have been writing and recording for three years, mainly for other artists, which I have enjoyed a lot and for whatever time I have left, (which I will no doubt be told in no uncertain terms very soon) I intend to carry on that practice and work around the farm with my wife and the animals we love.
WIth little more to say for now, I will remain as sociable as possible for as long as I can, until it renders me incapable and then my wife will inform everyone of the eventualities. 
Thanks for your support during my time as a singer/songwriter; I met and worked with many of my heroes and I lived the dreams from when I was a starstruck teenager, against all odds and the advice of parents and teachers, who were all wrong.
Rock on.
Tony Mills

TNT "Will Go On" Says RONNIE LE TEKRO

Artist: 
Monday, February 16, 2015
Categories: 
 
TNT guitarist Ronni Le Tekrø spoke to Norway Rock Magazine last week for an interview that will be published later this month in Norway.
 
With thanks to the Magazine, I can post this preview of the interview and yes, the question everyone wants to know…
 
NR: So what's happening to TNT these days, after losing two Tony's in two years?
Ronnie:  We won't retire just because a singer quits. People have tried to break the band previously on those terms. But they can't - we'll go on! We are searching for a new singer now, and will hold auditions shortly. I haven't told the press about this yet, you are the first one to know. We'll find a singer who is even better! And also able to reproduce what our previous singers did.
 
NR: What were the reasons for the Tony’s leaving?
Ronnie: Nothing dramatic, Mills had been with us for 8 years and we are still on speaking terms. Harnell leaving, well, that was almost expected. I have no desire to Discover exactly why. Those who want to leave the band may leave the band. We'll continue no matter what.

Help Kickstart The New MICHAEL RIESENBECK Album

Thursday, October 2, 2014
Categories: 
 
Hi folks, one of the good guys in this business is the independent artist Michael Riesenbeck. His new album is well underway, but he has a Kickstarter campaign going that has just a couple of days left to run with not much needed to fully fund the release of his new album.
Please check out the details and support if you can!
 
From Michael: "This project was started to raise funds to release my new album "II" on physical CD. The album is ready for release, all is recorded, mixed and mastered. The art work is done, the booklet design is ready. So the only thing missing are funds to be able to press physical cd's with a really cool booklet (lyrics, unique pictures, background information, etc). 
 
If you want to support the project, but don't have a credit card (which is the only payment method supported by Kickstarter, unfortunately), you can use PayPal: mriesenb@gmail.com or IBAN: NL88 ABNA 0495 0593 31 Att. M. Riesenbeck) and I'll make sure Kickstarter receives the funds. 
 
Guest performances by: Tony Mills (TNT, Shy), Eric Ragno (China Blue, Graham Bonnet), Phil Vincent, Danny Danzi , Rev Jones (Michael Schenker Group, Mountain), Franky Dee, John Taglieri, Timo Pudas (Urban Tale), Rob Boshuijzen (ICE), Rick Rici, Raymond van Melzen, Johan Volman, Sietze Postma, Vividly Frank, Serge Naberman (Rebelstar), Ollie Oldenburg, Bryan Woolley (The Machine), Frederic Dechavanne (Paris), Frederik Bergh (Street Talk), Michael Peet (Joe Bonamassa, Powerplay), Theo Fokkema, Marco van der Aar (Soylent Green), Arjen van der Ree, Rob Smeink, Jim Rykbost (Cold Heart) and Francisco J. Rodriguez (NeXX).
 
The style of the album can be described as a blend of melodic rock, hardrock, progressive rock, symphonic rock, bluesrock, metal and AOR. It has become a very diverse album because of all these influences. But, overall this is Melodic Rock!    
 
The album features 12 songs with catchy hooks, multi-layered vocals, guitars and keyboards, memorable choruses, played and sung by some of the best musicians around, with a top notch mix and sound quality. Thanks you for supporting the music and enabling me to keep releasing music!"
