TESLA’s Frank Hannon Rocks VH1’s That Metal Show!nikola
Well this week has been an adventure starting in Poughkeepsie, NY where AJ PERO died and FHB played the first show. When VH1 contacted me to describe my music segments, they asked if I would play something mellow for him, and immediately I thought to do a version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” in a “Love Song” acoustic picking style, but the producers said no due to legal publishing issues. Well it turns out that “Amazing Grace” is public domain and free to play. SO, I played a slow soulful version of the melody on Slide Guitar as a respectful tribute to AJ. Sadly, it’s not the first time I’ve played this version for a lost friend, as I have done it at funerals and memorials in the past and every time it brings tears to my eyes. So live life to the fullest and please enjoy every minute!
