Tesla ....'nuff said!

On Friday I went to see Tesla in concert for the 4th time and I have to say that they rocked so hard that I wanted to kick my own ass!!! hehe!
We arrived an hour and a half before the show. I kept telling my friends that I had front row tickets, which is not exactly true, but wasn't a lie either... LOLOL! It was general admission and I was determined to get a good spot. As luck would have it, we found a seat in the front row [actually, it was the third...the first 2 were for the handicapped & "important" people LOL! ]
The show lasted an hour and a half. They played most of their hits & also did a kick-axe cover of Skynyrd's song Saturday Night Special. They said they were going to release an album of covers soon then hit the studio to work on their next album.
I just love these guys! They evolve with the times and don't stay stuck in the past with their material. But most important, they have stayed true to themselves. Their last album, Into the Now, was by far my favorite of all their albums....I highly recommend it. Great stuff man!
I high fived with Jeff Keith. I have met him before...a few years ago after a show the band was in the back alley behind the club they played at hanging out with the fans. He is very cool & down to Earth.

This is my current favorite song...which just happens to be by Tesla! heheheh!


WHAT YOU GIVE by Tesla


Who's the one that makes you happy?
Or maybe, who's the one always on your mind?
And who is the reason you're livin' for?
Who's the reason for your smile?

I feel so lonely, yet I know I'm not the only one
To ever feel this way.
I love ya so much that I think I'm goin' insane.
I'm goin' crazy, outta my head.
Goin' crazy, outta my head.
Can't think about nothin' but your good, good love,
And what you give.

Now, ev'ry one needs somebody.
And you know, ev'rybody needs someone.
Well, and a-yes it's true!
Ev'rybody needs a special kind of love,
And you're the only one I'm thinkin' of.
You mean the world to me.
You are my only!

I feel so lonely, yet I know I'm not the only one
To carry on this way.
I love ya so much I lose track-a time,
Lose track of the days.
I'm goin' outta my head,
Goin' crazy, outta my head.
Can't think about a-nothin' but your good, good love,
And what you give.

It's not whatcha got, it's a-what you give.
It ain't the life you choose, it's the life you live.
It's only what you give, only what you give, only what you give,
It's not whatcha got, a-but the life you live.
It's the life you live.
[Spoken:] Play it pretty for the world.

You're the one that makes me happy. Oh yeah baby.
And you're the one always on my mind. And a-yes it's true.
You are my reason, my one and only that I've been livin' for
Why can't forever be forever and nothin' more.
I feel so lonely, yet I know I'm not the only one
To carry on this way.
I love ya so much I lose track-a time,
Lose track of the days.
I'm goin' outta my head,
Goin' crazy, outta my head.
Can't think about a-nothin' but your good, good love,
And what you give.

It's not whatcha got, it's a-what you give.
It ain't the life you choose, it's the life you live.
No, no, no, no, no!
It's not whatcha got, it's a-what you give.
And it ain't what it's not, but a-what it is!

Only what you give, only what you give. It's only what you give.
It's not whatcha got, a-but a-what you give.
It's not whatcha got, it's a-what you give. A-what you give woman.
It ain't the life you choose, it's the life you live.
It's only what you give, only what you give, only what you give,
It's not whatcha got, but a-what you give.
It's only what you give. Only what you give. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Only what you give. Only what you give.
Only what you give, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Is that good enough for the girls we run around with?
I do believe so. Ooh, ooh, uh-huh.
Only what you give, what you give. Only what you give.
Only what you give.

I saw Tesla the day after you did, and I've gotta say they rock just as hard as they did back in the day! And you picked one of my favorite Tesla songs to post!

If you should die before me, ask if you can bring a friend........

Damn, I love Tesla!!! I last saw them last summer opening for Def Leppard. I first saw them in 1988 - opening for Def Leppard! Their sound was so freaking clean I was amazed.

I did see them once in a small club in Hartford around 2002. They were still doing their unplugged thing. It was cool, but I was a bit disappointed. I thought they had plugged back in by then. I didn't really need an acoustic version of War Pigs.

I like to cut the balls off a long-haired hippie
And tie them up to a tree...


Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

There's a guy in Lincoln, Nebraska that I'm friends with, that does Tesla's lighting! He also has a profile here teslaLD! I love Tesla too, but my favorite song of theirs is "Paradise"!

Peace & Rock On,
