Found this. Live Tesla 1989.

Post by SWANTECH » Fri May 22, 2020 10:30 am

I got to thinking about seeing Tesla and Poison back in 1989. I remember Tesla opened and blew away Poison. They just came out and kicked ass.
Found this video of them in 1989. Thought I would share it. The third song Comin at ya live is great.

Still kicking ass after all these years. I haven't missed a Tesla concert in years. I had tickets to this years concert but I thing the show got canceled due to Covid 19. F!

Great band out of the gate!! :headbang
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

At the 45 min mark they start to play Modern Day Cowboy. Frank Hannon is playing a Gibson double neck SG. He switches to an acoustic in the song, then back to the electric, playing the rhythm parts on the 12 string side, and then even plays the solo on the 12 string side. He is one hell of a guitar player.

Saw them in Milwaukee late last year. One of the best concerts I've ever been to.
Played all the good ole tunes, sounded excellent. Money well spent.

Saw Poison a few years ago, they were opening for Motley Crue. Still good but not as good as Tesla is today.
I was never a big Poison fan but do like a lot of their songs.
I swear if I ever have to play Talk Dirty one more time It'll be too soon. The bitches love that song especially 20 beers into the night...
