    Rock Legend Brian Wheat (Tesla): Why Breaking Up Was The Best Thing That Could Happen To Us

    Rock Legend Brian Wheat (Tesla): Why Breaking Up Was The Best Thing That Could Happen To Us

    Success often comes at great expense!
    Without sugarcoating, my dear friend Brian Wheat, the multi-talented bassist, keyboardist, vocalist, and songwriter of rock legends TESLA, reveals his struggles in the ever-changing music business. An inspiring story of ups and downs: from a string of platinum records to excess and overcoming the band's breakup. From Metallica to Taylor Swift, and Miley Cyrus and much in between. 
    In 'Words Of Power,' I speak with people who have inspiring stories and discuss values that I believe help all of us to live a powerful life. Join me as we learn from each other and discover the values and methods that help us grow.
    About Brian Wheat:
    With six platinum records and countless sold-out tours in the U.S. and around the world under his belt, Brian is a true powerhouse: gifted artist, songwriter, producer, studio owner, author, and photographer. Despite all this and managing Tesla’s career with great success for over 20 years now (taking over from Peter Mensch and Cliff Burnstein, the visionaries behind Metallica's career), Brian still finds time to lend his expertise to aspiring artists who are seeking their way to the top. With his exciting new project, 'Violet Breed,' a collaboration with the talented U.K. singer-songwriter Alex, Brian has once again taken on a challenge that I have no doubt he will master.
