Aerosmith is a long-running classic rock band, originally forming in Boston, Massachusetts in the early 1970s. It enjoyed major popularity in the mid-1970s, but fell into decline and into temporary disunion. Nevertheless they would go on to enjoy a later resurgence in popularity starting in the late 1980s and continuing, at various levels, through the early to mid 2000s.
Steven Tyler, the lead vocalist for Aerosmith, was in, amongst others, a band called Chain Reaction, who recorded a single in 1966 (partly available on Aerosmith's 1991 box release Pandora's Box). He met Joe Perry, who was at the time playing in a band with bassist Tom Hamilton, while Perry was selling ice-cream in 1969, which eventually led to the formation of Aerosmith.
Although they are known as "the bad boys from Boston", none of the band's members are actually from that city. Three of them, Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Tom Hamilton, had originally met in Sunapee, New Hampshire in the late '60s, but had not yet formed a band together. Tyler was from Yonkers, New York, Perry from Hopedale, Massachusetts, and Hamilton from New London, New Hampshire. In 1970, the three decided to form a band and decided that Boston, Massachusetts would be the ideal base.
Guitarist Brad Whitford and drummer Joey Kramer rounded out the lineup, and the band released their eponymous debut album in 1973. The band created a string of ground-breaking hard-rock albums and enjoyed major popularity throughout the 1970s, but their serious substance abuse and drug addictions contributed to their decline. Joe Perry and Brad Whitford left the group, and the period from 1979-1984 was a dark one for the band, which carried on with replacements. However, in 1984, chiefly due to the tireless efforts of Joe Perry's then manager, Tim Collins, to reform the original band, Aerosmith was born again. Collins succeeded in helping the band resolve old differences and ultimately overcome their addictions. Since then, Aerosmith have remained sober for over 20 years, and have achieved a level of sustained success that has well eclipsed their 1970’s heyday.
Aerosmith, who have been performing as the original lineup for 32 of the past 37 years, have sold 150 million albums worldwide, 65.5 million albums in the United States alone, making them the bestselling American hard rock band of all time. They also hold the record for the most gold, platinum, and multi-platinum albums by an American group. The band has scored 28 Top 40 hits on multiple charts around the world, nine #1 Mainstream Rock hits, four Grammy awards, and ten Video Music Awards. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001. They continue to tour and average one million dollars a show. Their musical evolution over the years has made them major innovators in American hard rock, pop, glam, blues, and rap, and has inspired legions of rock artists that came after them. Their numerous contributions to other forms of media have further solidified their status as pop culture icons. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Aerosmith #57 on their list of The 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. The band has a loyal fanbase numbering over a million worldwide, known as the Blue Army, that has equally spanned the last three generations. Aerosmith's longevity, durability, and adaptability have allowed them to sustain high levels of popularity, acclaim, and success for the better part of the 37 years they have been active.
You talk about things and nobody cares
You're wearing other things that nobody wears
You're calling my name but I gotta make it clear
I can't say baby where I'll be in a year
Some sweet talkin? mama with a face like a gent
Said I'll get up and go, must have got up and went
Well I got good news, she's a real good liar
'Cause the backstage boogie set your pants on fire
I pulled into town in a police car
Your daddy said I took it just a little to far
You tell me other things but your girlfriend lied
You can't catch me 'cause the rabbit done died
Yes it is
You stand in the front just a shakin' your ass
I'll take you backstage, you can drink from my glass
I talk about something you can sure understand
'Cause a month on the road an' I'll be eating from your hand
