 "Livin' on the Edge", "Cryin'","Eat the Rich", "Fever","Line Up","Amazing" ...any wonder that "Get a Grip" is Aerosmith's biggest-selling album worldwide at over twenty million copies? The entire band sat down with me In the Studio to get a handle on "Get a Grip" in a revealing classic rock interview with an American treasure for the album's 30th anniversary.

Aerosmith- Fever- Brussels 10-31-93

The only kind of "Fever" that's actually good for anyone is the musical one that is symptomatic of the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu. Aerosmith was running a high "Fever", originally from the album Get a Grip earlier that year,…

Aerosmith- Rag Doll- Brussels 10-31-93

"Rag Time" originally was a subject derived from Steven Tyler's personal "periodic table", which has zero to do with chemistry and everything to do with female physiology...Now "Rag Doll" has remained an easy keeper in the Aerosmith live set for decades, including Halloween night in Brussels back in 1993.

Loverboy- Get Lucky- Mike Reno, Paul Dean

So when their sophomore effort "Get Lucky"  came out in Fall 1981, these Canadian rockers Loverboy were the right band at the right time. North American rock radio was waiting in anticipation for"Working for the Weekend", along with "When It's Over", "Jump" co-written by fellow countryman Bryan Adams, "Gangs in the Street", and "Take Me to the Top". Lead singer Mike Reno and guitarist Paul Dean recall how nice guys don't finish last in this  In The Studio  classic rock interview.

Aerosmith- Rocks- Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford, Joey Kramer

Aerosmith "Rocks". It was a declarative statement in Spring 1976 with no equivocation. If "Toys in the Attic" a year earlier had been the definitive mid-Seventies  American hard rock statement, then Aerosmith "Rocks" made it musically imperative with "Back in the Saddle", "Sick as a Dog", the clever sequel to "Toys..." with "Rats in the Cellar", and another infectious Steven Tyler/Brad Whitford hit, "Last Child". 

Aerosmith- Last Child- Brussels 10-31-93
