Jackie - Lead Vocals/Lead Guitar,
For the last four years Your Music Magazine and Lyon Entertainment have been working with the young upstarts from Jackie Rocks, a rock/pop/punk band out of the central coast of California. At present Jackie Rocks consists of Greg on Drums, De'Andre on Bass with Back Up Vocals, Jackie on Lead Guitar and Lead Vocals. The other day Jackie called and said she was in a new band Clone. I asked, “who are the members” and she said, “the same as Jackie Rocks but we’re a metal band.” At this point I was confused so I invited the band down to the office for an interview.
Mike Lyon: Is Jackie Rocks no more? Did you just change the name?
Jackie: We still have the band Jackie Rocks, we do acoustic, indie, pop, and rock. Clone began in the middle of August when I started writing heavier music. The heavier songs called for a different band because we couldn’t do everything in one band anymore. So we pretty much just cloned ourselves cause it’s all the same members and became Clone and Clone plays mostly metal.
MikeL: So Clone is a metal band? What’s it sound like?
Jackie: We are influenced by a lot of Iron Maiden, Queensryche, Avenged Sevenfold, going back to some of the old roots and new roots.
MikeL: What is Clone working on?
Jackie: We have a bunch of new songs we are playing but we are flushing out a couple to record in the next few months. Right now we are doing live recordings as pre production for professional recording next year.
MikeL: Is Jackie Rocks still performing live?
Jackie Yeah, we’ve been doing a lot of acoustic lately
