Telsa formed in Sacramento as City Kidd, and was renamed Tesla during the recording of their first album, 1986′s Mechanical Resonance, on the advice of their manager that City Kidd was not a great name. The band derived their name, certain album and song titles, and some song content from events relating to inventor and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla.   The band’s lyrics also strayed from the themes popular in hard rock, particularly in the 1980s at the beginning of their career. A further distinction from their contemporaries was their T-shirt-and-jeans image which was in strong contrast to glam metal bands of the time. The band’s current line up includes Jeff Keith, Frank Hannon, Brian Wheat, Troy Luccketta and Dave Rude. Tesla’s official web site is: teslatheband.com
