After seven years, Tony Mills leaves TNT.
Norway, August 5th, 2013
After three studio albums and extensive touring in Scandinavia, Europe and USA with Norwegian hard rockers TNT, Tony Mills continues the journey in his own artistic direction.Tony’s contractual obligations in territories like Japan and Australia, as well as different preferences in the rock world fueled the decision to part ways with the band.
«It has been a a long road since 2006 and I’ve been through a lot since Z Records recommended me for the job in Oslo» says Tony. «I’ve met a huge amount of people here; for such a small population compared to the UK, the market for rock music is a lot bigger than I could have ever believed with grand support from the government and open doors for funding.The fan base is spread over generations and the promotional support unprecedented.The country is much bigger than it seems and we have flown so many times, I’ve lost count» Mills continues.
«After the passing of our beloved Dag Stokke, and the parting with Victor Borge at the end of last year, my depart- ing may not be altogether unexpected. But there are other contracts I need to fulfill and a different focus I have to maintain in the coming years. I wish Ronni and his team all the best for their future, however it may shape itself. We’ve had some remarkable experiences together and we’ve worked with some incredible characters, from Ozzy Osbourne to Trine Rein, Anita Hegerland, Skid Row and Motorhead, Stage Dolls, Morten Abel, Age Sten Nielsen and even the crown prince. Bless them all; I hope to see them a few more times before the rock n roll wheel stops spin- ning and finally grinds to a halt. I shall be fulfilling all the previous engagements booked by the band and expected by the public, with great pleasure. And the ‘Girls in Norway’ are wonderful», Mills says in closing.
