Tesla To Celebrate 30th Anniversary Of “Five Man Acoustical Jam” With New Acoustic Recording

It looks like Tesla are planning to celebrate the 30th anniversary of “Five Man Acoustical Jam” with a new acoustic release. Drummer Troy Luccketta told Eonmusic the following about that:

“We just were in Abbey Road [studios in London] a couple of days ago, and that was nice because it’s the 30th anniversary for that record next year, so we just went live acoustically, completely live. So there’ll be a new, full record and DVD, I think of that. It’s all documented.”
