Unhappy TESLA's Recording Studio Destroyed In Fire

Quote:
According to KCRA.com, a fire early this morning (Thursday, September 30) burned the Sacramento recording studio of the rock band TESLA and a residence next door.

The blaze broke out just before 2 a.m. and resulted in the loss of some of the band's memorabilia.

According to KCRA.com, firefighters could be seen carrying musical instruments from the damaged studio, which is run by TESLA's bassist, Brian Wheat.

The cause of the fire is under investigation
SOURCE There's video at the source.

That really sucks big time. I hope they're insured. I would imagine they are.

This makes sense since their career was destroyed by fire in 1995.

I nearly had a heart attack at the prospect of that happening to Wintersun.

Well I just lost a bit of respect for you.

-Into the Now is one of my favorite Tesla records. I rank it above all but the first 2 albums. All things considered it was one HELL of a comeback album.

-They are still great live. Jeff Keith's voice is kinda shot but they make due. I've seen them live six times and every show has been great.

-They are hardly hurting for popularity. They are actually far outranking bands that were much more successful than them back in the day in terms of albums sold for newer albums and tickets moved for shows. The last time i saw them they had sold out a 2,000-capacity venue on their own. Not many bands from their general musical time period and movement can still do what they do. Their career is CERTAINLY far from dead.

Word. Tesla is very underrated in my opinion.

Well at least you have some respect for me even if it did go down. But I gotta confess that i've paid zero attention to Telsa since their break up in the mid 90s. I looked them up though and I had no idea that they've been back together since 2000 and have released four other albums. I know they've done some touring but I wasn't aware how much they've released since coming back.

I liked their old stuff so i'll give the new material a try.
