Aerosmith: Music suggestion Of The Day 16/04/2018

Let us start this new week with a Top100 suggestion. Not my favorite glam rock band (see links below for more sleaze ). Even G’n'R punk-like attitude gives more to the hard rock concept than this, undoubtly, historic band from the US.
Never the less no one should forget gems like the Rocks album, or easily bypass their early 70's releases that were as groundbreaking as KISS were, without being recognized as an all time classic arena rock band. Today’s post is primarily focused on those 4 early 70’s releases maintaining the ranking according to RYM.


But let’ s leave the experts (RYMWIKI) to better comment on today’ s suggestion because clearly Kokdi can’t add to the process more than the well known (toxic twins etc)
So let’s hear it first by RYM user JonFox: «Aerosmith, the bad boys from Boston ... at least that's what they once were, until the big corporate sell-out went down. During the stone-age '70s, Aerosmith was a touring machine that delivered blues-based hard rock. Aerosmith was never a heavy metal group, as many have incorrectly pegged the band. From the earliest days of Aerosmith's existence, until guitarist Joe Perry split to pursue a solo career, you could always bet your bottom dollar that the group would be criss-crossin' the United States, kickin' ass in clubs, halls and arenas. Aerosmith was a people's band that raged from the stage with a no-frills delivery, while pushing out a steady diet of hard rollin' rock LP's that peaked with the trio of Get Your Wings (1974), the hyper Toys in the Attic (1975), and the raging Rocks (1976). No matter where the group performed, A'smith rocked out in a major way from the stage. Aerosmith live was not a slick sounding production, as the down 'n' dirty group pounded-out raunch 'n' roll ... true grit and stacks of Marshall power, just what the long hair teens throughout America craved. Fronted by screamin' Steven Tyler and the moody Perry, Aerosmith was the stateside version of the Yardbirds during the dazed 'n' confused decade. By '77 the heavy drug use took hold, as Aero went toxic, but continued to bang out hard rock for the Blue Army (Aerosmith's loyal fan base). Don't let anybody fool you ... the seventies marked the prime time era of Aerosmith's hard rock run. Once Aerosmith reunited in 1984, the bad ass onslaught was a distant memory, replaced by a glut of uninspired songs since the mid-'90s, which has tarnished the group's once raw, hard rockin' stance



WIKI states that Aerosmith were influenced by Bands such as The Beatles, The Rolling StonesThe YardbirdsLed Zeppelin and the NY Dolls, Aerosmith proved to be a major influence themselves on subsequently massively successful bands and musicians; according to Perry, Eddie Van Halen told him that his band "started out on the suburban L.A. club circuit playing Aerosmith songs. Aerosmith's influence was evident on the next generaton of hard rock and heavy metal bands namely Mötley Crüe, Guns N Roses, Cinderella, Skid Row etc, as well as Metallica, Metal Church and Testament. Nikki Sixx has expressed massive admiration for the band and it's early records in both The Dirt and The Heroin Diaries. Members of alternative rock bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots and Godsmack are also self-professed early Aerosmith fans.
Collaborations, either by indivindual members of the band or by the band itself, have included Alice Cooper (Trash Album), Guns N Roses (supporting act for Aerosmith in their 1988 tour). As a testimony to their importance in American popular culture as a whole, Aerosmith have also collaborated with popular non - rock artists, such as RUN DMC, Eminem and Carrie Underwood, and performed with 'N Sync, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige and Nelly for the Super Bowl XXXV halftime show. Country artists Garth Brooks and Mark Chesnutt both scored hit singles covering Aerosmith tunes.
Like many of their 1970's contemporaries including Zeppelin and Alice Cooper, the members of Aerosmith were prone to excess and debauchery. Drug consumption was rampant; the recording session for 1977's Draw the Line were especially noted for their substance indulgence, including heroin. in the words of Bebe Buell "They (Aerosmith) were like a gang of kids with their own planes, porches, millions of dollars, limitless resources.....Mick Jagger and Jimmy Page had control, but this boys did not care. They won the prize, hands down, for the rowdiest rock 'n' roll band in that era. No question [252]"
So Ladies and gentlemen without any further a due may we present the fabulous toxic twins and their band, ranking #99 @ My TOP100 List, a.k.a.
