TESLA guitarist Frank Hannon talks new music, setlists, solo albums, funny cars, and his dog Patrick 7/27/2022


Frank Hannon is a founding member and guitarist for the band Tesla.

Tesla is coming up on 40 years as a band and has sold more than 14 million records in the U.S. alone. Frank and Tesla have just released a new single called “Time To Rock.” Frank talks with Dr. Music about that new single, if and when we might see a full-length Tesla album, and of course some of his past with Tesla and the music he’s done as a solo artist. Frank also tells us about something he’s always wanted to do in his personal life, and his dog Patrick!

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70's with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it. I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
