About

Bluesy stadium rockers with a penchant for big ballads

With a career spanning more than five decades, 21 singles in the Billboard top 40 chart and countless awards – including four Grammys – under their belts, Aerosmith have paved the way for legions of artists from all genres to follow.

The group is made up of lead singer Steven Tyler, guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, bassist Tom Hamilton and drummer Joey Kramer.

In the ’60s, before they were Aerosmith, Tyler (then known as Steven Tallarico) was the lead singer of a New York band called Chain Reaction, while Perry and Hamilton were in The Jam Band in New Hampshire, which Kramer later joined when they relocated to Boston in 1969. The two groups met at a gig in 1970, with Tyler digging the freeform bluesy-rock sound of the “Jammers” and lobbying to join. Within a year after he came on board, they’d adopted the name Aerosmith inspired from Harry Nilsson’s album Aerial Ballet and their original rhythm guitarist departed to be replaced by Whitford.

Reminiscent in look and swagger of the Rolling Stones, they were signed by Columbia Records in 1972 and released their self-titled debut album containing the popular track Dream On in 1973. Their sophomore album Get Your Wings came out in 1974, followed only a year later by Toys In The Attic, which boasted the hits Sweet Emotion and Walk This Way. As Aerosmith’s global profile grew, so too did their reputation for being a hard partying band, prone to a lifestyle of heavy drinking and drug abuse.

Their 1976 album Rocks was critically acclaimed for its raw rock sound, while 1977’s Draw The Line received a lukewarm response. Aerosmith appeared in the 1978 film Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band doing a cover of The Beatles’ song Come Together.

While recording their next album, 1979’s Night In The Ruts, arguments led to Perry leaving to set up The Joe Perry Project.

Aerosmith released their Greatest Hits compilation album in 1980. After recording the first single for their seventh album, Whitford left the band as well – first working with Derek St Holmes and then joining Perry’s group. When Rock In A Hard Place arrived in 1982, Aerosmith’s popularity had ebbed and their drug-fuelled ways had taken a toll, especially on Tyler, who was in and out of rehab.

In 1984, Perry and Whitford attended an Aerosmith performance at the Boston’s Orpheum Theater, with the band reuniting a few months later and embarking on the Back In The Saddle reunion tour. Their comeback album Done With Mirrors arrived in 1985 but only garnered moderate interest. It was actually a re-recording of their ’70s hit Walk This Way with Run-DMC that not only brought the group back into the mainstream but also helped bridge the barrier between rock and rap.

By 1987, after Tyler successfully completed a drug treatment programme, Aerosmith signed with Geffen Records and unveiled the album Permanent Vacation, which reached No.37 on the UK albums chart and spawned three top 20 hits: Angel, Rag Doll and Dude (Looks Like A Lady), which was inspired by Tyler mistaking Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe for a woman.

Permanent Vacation served to kick off a decade of hugely successful albums in the UK for the hard rock quintet that included the No.3-charting Pump in 1989, the No.2-charting Get A Grip in 1993, the No.7-charting Big Ones in 1994 and the No.4-charting Nine Lives in 1997. Among Aerosmith’s biggest hits from these collections were Love In An Elevator, Janie’s Got A Gun, CrazyCryin’What It Takes, Shut Up And Dance, Amazing and Livin’ On The Edge.

In between releasing albums, the band toured extensively all around the world, plus they were among the performers for 1994’s Woodstock in upstate New York celebrating the 25th anniversary of the original festival. Unfortunately, their Nine Lives Tour was beset with problems including Tyler injuring his leg at a concert when a microphone stand fell on his knee and Kramer suffering second-degree burns after his car caught fire at a petrol station.

In 1998, Aerosmith recorded the track I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing, written by Diane Warren and featured in the Michael Bay film Armageddon, which also starred Tyler’s daughter Liv. The song debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No.4 on the UK singles charts. They also performed three other songs in the film: Come Together, What Kind Of Love Are You On and Sweet Emotion.

Aerosmith welcomed the new millennium with a 2001 Super Bowl half-time performance. Also that year, they released their 13th album Just Push Play. Its first single Jaded was a top 10 hit on rock charts around the world and the album was certified platinum in the US and silver in the UK within a month. Capping off 2001, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They spent the next couple years on the road in support of Just Push Play as well as on their 2002 Girls Of Summer Tour and 2003 Rocksimus Maximus Tour.

Aerosmith revealed a blues tribute album in 2004 called Honkin’ On Bobo with 11 covers and the new song Grind. Again they hit the road in 2005 with their Rockin’ The Joint Tour and in 2006 joined Mötley Crüe for the Route Of All Evil Tour – however, Hamilton stayed home to receive treatment for throat cancer.

Following Aerosmith’s 2007 World Tour, the band headed back to the studio. The next four years were fraught with problems as Tyler not only struggled with shoulder and leg injuries but he also worked on solo endeavours that left the band in limbo.

In 2011, Aerosmith reunited with producer Jack Douglas (John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Cheap Trick, Patti Smith), who’d helmed some of their classic ’70s albums, and a year later Music From Another Dimension! arrived.

The rockers spent the next six years on a series of tours – the Global Warming Tour, Let Rock Rule Tour, Blue Army Tour, Rock ’N’ Roll Rumble Tour and Aero-Vederci Baby! Tour – and in 2019 announced a residency in Park Theatre at the Park MGM resort in Las Vegas. Called Deuces Are Wild, a reference to both the city’s gambling scene and their 1994 single by the same name, Aerosmith headlined there through February 2020, with their remaining shows postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In early 2020, the rock giants were named MusiCares Person Of The Year, awarded two days before the Grammys, in recognition of their musical and philanthropic achievements.

As part of a European tour, Aerosmith announced UK dates at The O2 in London, AO Arena in Manchester and FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield, which were rescheduled to June and July 2022.
