A special award for Tesla frontman Jeff Keith. The Animal Rescue Foundation presented the glam rocker with the Evie Award for work related to animal charities. Keith said the award is the most special he's ever received.
Tesla recently completed work on a cover album of their favorite 1970s songs. An April release date is planned.
The band is planning a short tour to support their sixth studio release. The first three scheduled dates are:
2/22/2007 - Kewadin Casino - Sault Sainte Marie, MI
2/24/2007 - Route 66 Casino - Albuquerque, NM
4/21/2007 - Pima County Fair - Tucson, AZ
A lot of glam fans regard Tesla as a highly underrated band. While most bands of the era used synthesizers to distort their sound, Tesla stayed true to rock with just guitars and drums. In fact, Jeff Keith says that the band didn't even use Pro Tools while recording their latest cover album, therefore giving the disc a "live" sound.
"Love Song" from the Great Radio Controversy remains Tesla's most famous song. If you turn on a classic rock radio station and wait awhile I guarantee you'll hear the hit.
