AEROSMITH WAS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR BANDS OF THE 1970’s. THEIR HEAVY, BLUES-BASED, DIRTY-RIFFING, AND POWER BALLADS SET THE STANDARD FOR ROCK 'N' ROLL FOR YEARS TO COME. THEY INFLUENCED OTHER BANDS SUCH AS GUNS N’ ROSES, BON JOVI, AND MOTLEY CRUE.

AEROSMITH IS BORN

Aerosmith first formed in 1970, in Sunapee, New Hampshire when vocalist Steven Tyler met guitarist Joe Perry at a club called The Barn. The two decided to form a band along with bassist Tom Hamilton.

TYLER FELT THAT THE BAND NEEDED TWO GUITARISTS AND PUT HIS FRIEND RAYMOND TABANO IN THAT POSITION. HE WAS ONLY IN THAT POSITION FOR A LITTLE WHILE BEFORE LOSING HIS SPOT TO BRAD WHITFORD. DRUMMER JOEY KRAMER WAS ADDED SOON AFTER.

AEROSMITH RELEASED A TOTAL OF 14 ALBUMS FROM 1973 TO 2004


Aerosmith

THEIR DEBUT ALBUM WAS RELEASED ON JANUARY 13, 1973 UNDER THE RECORD LABEL OF COLUMBIA RECORDS. THIS ALBUM ONLY MADE IT TO # 166 ON THE CHARTS AND ONLY ONE SONG, “DREAM ON”, MADE IT TO # 59.


Aerosmith

CLIVE DAVIS OF COLUMBIA RECORDS FELT THAT THE ALBUM “AEROSMITH” DIDN’T SELL ENOUGH RECORDS AND WANTED TO DROP THEM FROM THE LABEL. THE ONLY REASON HE DIDN’T WAS BECAUSE “DREAM ON” HAD DONE FAIRLY DECENT ON THE CHARTS.


Aerosmith

ON MARCH 1, 1974 AEROSMITH RELEASED THEIR SECOND ALBUM TITLED “GET YOUR WINGS”. THIS ALBUM DID CONSIDERABLY BETTER THAN THEIR FIRST AND SPENT A TOTAL OF 86 WEEKS ON THE CHARTS.


Aerosmith

IN APRIL OF 1975, AEROSMITH RELEASED THEIR BREAKTHROUGH ALBUM CALLED “TOYS IN THE ATTIC”. THIS ALBUM HAD ONE SONG IN THE TOP 40 AND ONE IN THE TOP 10 AND THE ALBUM ITSELF SHOT TO # 11 ON THE CHARTS.


Aerosmith

AEROSMITH RELEASED A FOURTH ALBUM TITLED “ROCKS”. THIS ALBUM DIDN’T HAVE A BIG SINGLE BUT IS CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST ROCK ALBUMS OF ALL TIME.


Aerosmith

BY THE TIME “DRAW THE LINE” WAS RELEASED, THE BAND WAS HEAVILY INVOLVED WITH DRUGS AND ALCOHOL.


Aerosmith

“NIGHT IN THE RUTS” REACHED # 13 BUT WAS CONSIDERED TO BE THE LEAST SUCCESSFUL ALBUM UP TO THIS POINT. SHORTLY BEFORE THE RELEASE OF THE ALBUM, JOE PERRY LEFT AEROSMITH TO FORM HIS OWN BAND.


Aerosmith

AEROSMITHS’ ALBUM “ROCK IN A HARD PLACE” WAS A COMMERCIAL FAILURE REACHING ONLY # 32. COSEQUENTLY THEY WERE DROPPED FROM COLUMBIA RECORDS.


Aerosmith

AFTER THE RELEASE OF “ROCK IN A HARD PLACE” THE MEMBERS OF AEROSMITH WERE DEVOTING SO MUCH OF THEIR TIME AND MONEY TO DRUGS THAT THEY HAD LITTLE TIME FOR MUSIC. THEY ALL LOST MONEY, CARS, THEIR HOUSES, AND OTHER VALUABLES IN ORDER TO PAY FOR THEIR DRUGS.


Aerosmith

WITH ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE BAND BACK TOGETHER, AEROSMITH NOW HAD A CONTRACT WITH GEFFEN RECORDS AND RELEASED THEIR FIRST ALBUM IN FIVE YEARS. “DONE WITH MIRRORS WAS RELEASED ON NOVEMBER 9, 1985 BUT TO VERY LITTLE SUPPORT FROM THEIR FANS.


Aerosmith

RELEASED ON SEPTEMBER 5, 1987, “PERMANENT VACATION” BECAME AN INSTANT HIT AT #11 AND FEATURED TOP 10 SINGLES SUCH AS "DUDE (LOOKS LIKE A LADY)", "RAG DOLL", AND "ANGEL".


Aerosmith

AEROSMITH RELEASED "PUMP“ ON SEPTEMBER 8, 1989. THIS ALBUM INCLUDED 3 MORE TOP 10 SINGLES, "JANIE'S GOT A GUN", "LOVE IN AN ELEVATOR", AND "WHAT IT TAKES", AS WELL AS ANOTHER HIT SINGLE, "THE OTHER SIDE". THE ALBUM WAS A HUGE SUCCESS, AND SET THE BAND ON TRACK FOR THE 90'S.


Aerosmith

ON APRIL 20, 1993, “GET A GRIP” WAS RELEASED. THIS WAS THEIR MOST SUCCESSFUL ALBUM TO DATE. IT FEATURED STRONG SINGLES LIKE "AMAZING", "LIVIN' ON THE EDGE", "CRYIN", "CRAZY", AND "EAT THE RICH“. THIS ALBUM ALSO WON SEVERAL GRAMMY AND PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS.


Aerosmith

SOON AFTER “GET A GRIP” WAS RELEASED, THE BAND WENT ON A 224-SHOW GET A GRIP TOUR AND WAS A HUGE SUCCESS. THE YEARS BETWEEN THE TOUR AND THE RELEASE OF THEIR NEXT ALBUM, “NINE LIVES”, RESULTED IN TURMOIL. MEMBERS OF AEROSMITH HAD TO GO TO THERAPY SESSIONS AND RUMORS GOT OUT THAT THEY WERE DOING DRUGS AGAIN.


Aerosmith

MARCH 18,1997, “NINE LIVES” WAS RELEASED AT #1 AND QUICKLY WENT PLATINUM.


Aerosmith

“JUST PUSH PLAY” WAS RELEASED ON MARCH 6, 2001 AND WENT PLATINUM VERY QUICKLY WITH THE TOP TEN SINGLE “JADED”.


Aerosmith

NOT LONG AFTER “JUST PUSH PLAY” WAS RELEASED, AEROSMITH WAS INDUCTED INTO THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME. THEY ARE THE ONLY BAND TO DO SO WITH A SONG ACTIVE ON THE CHARTS, “JADED”.


Aerosmith

“HONKIN’ ON BOBO” RELEASED IN 2004, WAS A LONG AWAITED ALBUM BY AEROSMITH FANS. THIS WAS A HEAVY BLUES BASED ALBUM AND WAS A RETURN BACK TO THE BANDS ROOTS.


Aerosmith

AEROSMITH IS SET TO RELEASE A NEW ALBUM SOMETIME IN THE SPRING OF THIS YEAR. IT WILL BE THEIR FIRST ALBUM SINCE 2004 AND THEIR FIRST ALBUM WITH ALL ORIGINAL MATERIAL SINCE 2001.
