Tesla’s Brian Wheat lifts the lid on living the rock ’n’ roll life while struggling with anxiety, depression, and other issues seldom discussed by musicians. As a friend of the House of Hair, we salute Brian and his very open and honest memoir about living with his crippling anxiety and depression.
Brian is best known as the bass guitarist of the platinum-selling band, Tesla, which he cofounded in 1982. While revealing the vulnerable human behind the bass guitar, this autobiography also offers tremendous stories of life on the road, and collaborations and encounters with legendary figures like his pals in Def Leppard, David Lee Roth, Alice Cooper, and Paul McCartney.
Featuring a foreword by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and an afterword by renowned rock photographer Ross Halfin, ”Son of a Milkman” will entertain, surprise, and inspire longtime fans of this enduring band.
