Episode Description:

Steven speaks with Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon about some of his earliest musical memories and the band's newest album release "Shock." We go album-by-album to discuss what Frank's thoughts were at the time of recording. Because we are such huge Tesla fans, as an added bonus we thought why not throw in our top 5 Tesla tunes to rock along the way.

What's The Story:

Tesla is an American rock band formed in Sacramento, California in late 1981 by bassist Brian Wheat and guitarist Frank Hannon as Earthshaker, and later City Kidd. Lead vocalist Jeff Keith, drummer Troy Luccketta, and guitarist Tommy Skeoch joined them by 1984. By 1986, the band had changed from its glam-derived sound to a 'rootsier' direction under a new name: "Tesla." The band disbanded in 1996 with members devoting themselves to solo projects before re-forming in 2000. Tommy Skeoch departed the band in 2006 and was replaced by Dave Rude. Tesla have sold 14 million albums in the United States.

I heard the first single "Modern Day Cowboy from the band's debut album upon its release and was hooked. When I saw the band in a small club in Atlanta on that very first tour for the debut album, I loved everything about the bands no-frills approach to rock n roll and I never looked back. Over the years, I have seen the band countless times and purchased all the band's releases of original material. This band is rock n roll done right; from its heavy driven rockers to its meaningful ballads. Love This Band!!
