Watch: Tesla “Lazy Days, Crazy Nights” In Quarantine!
You gotta love that more and more bands are doing this! Tesla practiced social distancing and virtually got together and played “Lazy Days, Crazy Nights” to start up their new online series, “Home To Home”!
The band spent much of 2019 touring to support their latest album, “Shock” (released March 2019). It was produced by Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen.
Tesla bassist Brian Wheat was recently a guest of SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation” and said that “Shock” divided the band’s fans, “Some people hate it, some people love it. I tell you, after five weeks, six weeks, it’s leaning more toward, ‘You know, it had to grow on me. I’m actually enjoying it now.’ That’s the thing, that’s why we called it ‘Shock’. We knew it was going to shock people. The other thing is, we couldn’t just continue to do the same record over and over and over again, so we tried something different. It’s cool. The songs go down well live, I see people singing, our fans are in there singing ‘Shock’, singing ‘Taste Like’, singing ‘[Tied To The] Tracks’, singing ‘Take Me Alive’. It’s cool. Look, after so many years, I’m glad we’re able to make another record because not the first on everyone’s agenda anymore.”
Tesla released “Five Man London Jam” on March 27 on Blu-ray, 2LP vinyl, CD and digital.
Which other bands do you wish would start up a series like Tesla’s “Home To Home”?
