Last week Tesla rolled through town, and as always...They were unbelievably great live. They always have been. I have seen them numerous times over the years, and like so many of the legendary bands in Rock like Styx, Firehouse, etc..,....They just deliver in a huge kind of way. They have added LED screens, do an acoustic set in the middle of the show, have one of the best FOH engineers in the business, and show song after song why they will be performing for many years to come.
It was great to see Troy Luccketta. I see him a couple of times a year, and stay in touch with him. He has been an incredible friend to me over the years, and is always willing to lend his advice and thoughts on what I am doing here at Beier Drums. He has used my drums on many, many studio records from Doris Day's last record, to the latest single from Tesla "Save That Goodness" which was released on the Mechanical Resonance Live album. That has always been an enormous honor for me! (See "Records" section on this site)
Also want to send out a big Thank You to Jack O'Donnel & Brian Wheat of Tesla. Brian owns J Street Recorders, and has a 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 there for recording. I touched base with Jack who works in the studio, and had a great conversation with him. They both really, really like the drum, and there is no doubt it will pop up on a lot of material that they are producing and engineering. They recently used the 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 on a single from Katie Danberg as well.
Thanks Again for everything you guy's...Will be in touch....!
