Jeff and Frank from Tesla stop by to chat on the next episode of VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show. Here’s some quotes:
Frank Hannon explaining to everyone that the Guns ‘n Roses song “Patience” was a rip off of a Tesla demo called “Better Off Without You.”
Frank Hannon: “Let me tell you something: “Patience”, we were label mates with Gun ‘n Roses on Geffen, there’s a demo of a song that we wrote called “Better Off Without You”. It is “Patience” note for note.”
Eddie Trunk: “Sue their asses”
Don Jamieson: “Breaking news on “That Metal Show””
Jim Florentine: “And I got something else, he whistled on the song dude. You don’t whistle on a song, you sing a song.”
