As a founding member and lead guitarist for the band Tesla, Frank Hannon has performed thousands of shows all over the world. Tesla, named for the important but historically overlooked scientist Nikola Tesla, certainly built a well-deserved reputation as one of the best live bands in existence. Touring behind successful albums such as the platinum debut 'Mechanical Resonance,' double platinum 'The Great Radio Controversy,' platinum 'Psychotic Supper' and gold 'Bust a Nut' earned a rabidly loyal fan base. Songs like "Modern Day Cowboy," "Little Suzi," "Love Song," "Heaven's Trail (No Way Out)" and "Edison's Medicine" were fireballs. Tesla's major commercial breakthrough was the unprecedented live acoustic platinum-selling album 'Five Man Acoustical Jam' and its smash single "Signs," a remake of the Five Man Electrical Band's hit.
