TESLA bassist Brian Wheat lifts the lid on living the rock ’n’ roll life while struggling with anxiety, depression, and other issues seldom discussed by musicians in his new book, Son of a Milkman: My Crazy Life with Tesla, which will be released on December 15, 2020 via Post Hill Press (and co-penned by Chris Epting).

Pre-order the book here: https://tinyurl.com/y4y7swnp

And before its official release, there will be a live signing event on December 9th, with additional info here: https://livesigning.com/milkman

Far from your typical rock star, as bassist for the multi-platinum band, TESLA, Brian has enjoyed the spoils of success and lived the sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll lifestyle to the hilt. But it came at a cost, one that took years to repair.

In this deeply honest and utterly revealing memoir, Wheat sheds light on the many challenges he faces, including bulimia, weight issues, and the crippling anxiety and depression caused by his conditions. Just like the songs his legendary band made, this is no-nonsense, blue-collar storytelling at its best.

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.

Brian is best known as the bass guitarist of the platinum-selling band, TESLA, which he cofounded in 1982. TESLA became one of the biggest bands of the late 1980s–1990s. Brian owns a recording studio by the name of J Street Recorders in Sacramento, California. PAPA ROACH, TESLA, Pat Travers, DEFTONES, KODIAK JACK, FLASHFIRES, and many others have recorded there.

Chris Epting is an award-winning journalist and the author of many books, including Adrenalized (co-written with DEF LEPPARD’s Phil Collen) and Change of Seasons (co-written with John Oates).

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.
