From MPAC: That they are still roaring and soaring should be no surprise. That’s just how they are built. Tesla may have been born in the mid-80s eruption of leather, spandex and big hair, but this band has never been about those things. Their bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of authentic 1970s rock and roll — the same roots that produced bands like the Allman Brothers, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aerosmith.
