It`s not easy....

Its not easy to interview some of the huge stars...

Mostly you get the answer:

How many hits do your site have and such things... what does hits matter?

So for example it could be 5000 a month but no one is reading the interview but it could be also 1000 and all the 1000 read just THIS interview... so the statistics didn´t mean a thing thats my opinion. I really interviewed lots of underground bands since 2005 ... and some really well know acts but i still want to interview some other well known bands too... 

As you know I run rocket queen promotions (as small business)  too I havent got the time to interview all underground bands as the work of rocket queen promotion is already hard and intense work - but i still would love to follow interviewing well known artists from time to time... please if you read that don`t make it too difficult for me and contact me if you like. Anyone is welcome...

Yours Rocket Queen Promotion

Michael Toney s book Tales from the stage to be released June 29 2012 - order your copy NOW


              Contact: Jennifer Todorov
              TALES FROM THE STAGE


June 26, 2012 - Las Vegas, NV - Tales from the Stage, Volume 1 is nonfiction book consisting of in-depth interviews with hard rock and heavy metal music professionals that helped shape the hard rock and heavy metal movement. The books website officially opened last Frriday, June 22. “We did a soft release for the friends and followers of our participants on Friday, June 22.” says Michael Toney, the book’s author. “The website crashed for five minutes due to the volume, but we are better prepared for this Friday. The book is basically a 238 page journey that takes you through the hard rock and heavy metal movement, accompanied by 15 of the best tour guides in the business.” says Toney.

Tales from the Stage, Volume 1 will include 60-70 question interviews with 15 hard rock insiders; Bruce Kulick (Kiss, Grand Funk Railroad), Jay Reynolds (Malice, Metal Church), Herman Rarebell (Scorpions), Tim “Ripper” Owens (Judas Priest, Dio Disciples), Eddie Trunk (Radio/TV personality), Jeff Duncan (Armored Saint, DC4), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns), Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot, King Kobra), Chris Holmes (W.A.S.P.), Oz Fox (Stryper), Steve “Lips” Kudlow (Anvil), Betsy Bitch (Bitch), Ron Keel (Keel, Steeler), Brian Slagel (CEO, Metal Blade Records), and Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Foreigner).

The official release date of June 29, 2012 was announced recently, but the pre-orders have been strong since the first of the month. “The book content is incredibly exciting to all fans of the music.” says Toney. “What makes the books content different is that I don’t have a journalism background. I ask questions from a fan/musicians perspective. Finances, homes, and cars were not off limits.”   

Tales from the Stage, Volume 1 has partnered with the non-profit organization, Ride for Dime (RFD). A portion of all book sales will be donated to RFD which is committed to furthering music education for America’s youth. Michael Toney also co-authored the book Tales from the Cage, which was of a similar format, focusing on the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.

Chelsea Knaack new singer for Heliosaga


Chelsea Knaack Joins Heliosaga as New Lead Vocalist

Symphonic/Power  Metal  band Heliosaga are  proud  to welcome  their  new  vocalist Chelsea

 Chelsea Knaack is known for her lead vocals in DesDemon and brought her impressive talent to
their 2011 release on Radtone Music Japan. 

Damien Villarreal formed Heliosaga in 2010 with a dynamic selection of musicians around San
Antonio,  Texas. Heliosaga’s  powerful  moving  melodies,  enhanced  by  Chelsea  Knaack’s
passionate soprano voice, will make Heliosaga a force among the ranks of the female fronted genre. 

Heliosaga are writing new material and will begin pre-production for label representation following
Chelsea’s relocation to Texas this Summer.

The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning
the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life. 

Chelsea  Knaack  states "I  was  looking  for  a  new  chapter  in  my  life  with  a new  adventure  and
Heliosaga  fit  the  plan.  It  was  also  the  chemistry  with  the  guys;  we  are  all  very  similar  in  many
ways. It will be a great adventure indeed."

Heliosaga  adds “Chelsea’s  vocals  are  moving,  her  stage  presence  is  captivating  and  she  has  an
immense  passion  for  this  kind  of  music.  Shortly  after  meeting  we  realized  how  well  we  click  on
personal  and  professional  levels,  so  we  can  say  that  we  have  gained  a  great  friend  and  an
incredible  band  mate!  We  are  eager  to  begin  recording  our  debut  album  together,  which  will  be
released early next year.”

Heliosaga look forward to touring in support of their debut album.

This year and 2013 will be exciting years for Heliosaga with much more activity.  

Heliosaga is  Chelsea  Knaack  (lead  vocals),  Damien  Villarreal  (guitars  and  keyboards),  Ken
Lambdin (guitars), Jacob Horning (bass), and Jordan Ames (drums).

Heliosaga’s 2011 demo tracks can be accessed at their Reverbnation site.   Check often for
news updates and new material.
