    Aerosmith

    Love the classic era, even the weird, uneven Rock In a Hard Place album, the one without Perry and Whitford.

    Loved the comeback albums from the 80's.

    Get a Grip on up was very hit-or-miss. Joe Perry's solo work, especially his 00's albums were excellent, while Tyler's solo album was surprisingly decent. "I don't want to miss a thing" is the worst song ever.

    Thoughts?

    I love some of their music, but it's not too hard for me to tell that they're just in it for the money now. And have been for quite some time. After watching them on 60 Minutes several years ago I could tell that they probably didn't even like each other.

    Nine Lives is their last great work, haven't bothered much with anything after the Armageddon period.

    Aerosmith in the 70s were awesome. I loved the stuff they did in the late 80s while Get a Grip is filled with too many power ballads as that was the start of them becoming a corporate rock band. Nine Lives was probably the last thing they did that I enjoyed as everything else after that was just... ugh.... except for that blues album they did.

    Songs from Another Dimension was very uneven. Some really good shit, but about a third of it was awful, power-balled shit.

    Saw them live at Cobo in Detroit for the "Rocks" tour. Steven and Joe were still on heroin. A bunch of us high school kids went together to the show, smoked about two ounces of weed on the way there, and even with concert pot amnesia I still vividly remember a friend leaning over to me and saying, "Is it just me, or is all this shit REALLYYYY SLOOOOOWWW??" And she was right, every fucking song was slowed down, LOL LOL LOL. Or, maybe it was just us, hahahahaa.

    My husband still watches the video of Steven falling off the stage, on repeat.

    My first thought upon seeing this thread:

    "Oh fuck, who died?"



    Glad I wrong.

    That's one of my favorite cuts by the band as it's a great take on the Yardbirds' "Stroll On"

    Steve Hunter is one of my favorite guitarists he has played in Alice Cooper's live band (Welcome To My Nightmare tour and album), Lou Reed's live band yes that is him on Sweet Jane Rock n' Roll Animal, and Peter Gabriel's first album and ghosted on the early Aerosmith albums. He has a Hell of a track record, Cooper, Reed and Gabriel DAYUMMM!!!! He is now working as a session musician in Nashville.

    I was listening to Just Push Play for the first time since probably it was released (2001) and it was nowhere near as bad as I remember. Some good songs:


    ^Looks like Steven was watching Kids in the Hall.
