It’s been said that lightning never strikes the same place twice.
However, it does in the case of Tesla. Over the course of their thirty-year career, the critically acclaimed iconic Sacramento melodic hard rock quintet—Frank Hannon [guitar], Brian Wheat [bass], Jeff Keith [lead vocals], Troy Luccketta [drums], and Dave Rude [guitar]—sold more than 25 million albums and performed to sold-out crowds across the world. Their journey kicked into high gear with 1986’s platinum-certified debut, Mechanical Resonance, which solidified them as a household name and yielded signature anthems such as Little Suzi, Modern Day Cowboy, Cumin’ Atcha Live, and Gettin’ Better.
It was the follow-up, 1989’s, which truly broke the band. The first single, Heaven’s Trail (No Way Out), was a hit with hard rock audiences, setting the stage for the second single, a comforting ballad called Love Song which substituted a dash of hippie utopianism for the usual power ballad histrionics.
Love Song hit the pop Top Ten and made the band stars, pushing The Great Radio Controversy into the Top 20 and double-platinum sales figures; the follow-up single, The Way It Is, was also a hit.
TESLA’s music was sturdy enough to hold up when its roots were exposed, and one of the covers, Signs, became another Top Ten hit, as well as the band’s highest-charting single. Not only did this Five Man Acoustical Jam song reach the Top 20 and go Platinum, it helped directly inspire MTV’s Unplugged series, both with its relaxed vibe and its reminder that acoustic music could sound vital and energetic.
The studio follow-up to The Great Radio Controversy, Psychotic Supper, was released in 1991 and quickly became another platinum hit and spun off the greatest number of singles of any TESLA album: Edison’s Medicine, Call It What You Want, Song and Emotion, and the classic hit, What You Give, which was another one of TESLA’s ballad singles that reached Top 20 radio airplay.
Through band and management changes, the band continued to crank out albums and singles leading up to the 2016 release of Mechanical Resonance Live! celebrating Mechanical Resonance’s 30th birthday.
