Aerosmith- Toys in the Attic 45th Anniversary- Steven Tyler, Brad Whitford

We dust off "Toys in the Attic",  the breakthrough third album for Aerosmith in  April 1975. Contrary to what you might assume, through their first two albums Aerosmith struggled to get noticed. In this classic rock interview, Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer reminded me that "Dream On" from their debut by then had been released as a single three times  and flopped twice.

Aerosmith- Get a Grip- Steven Tyler, Joe Perry,Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford, Joey Kramer

 "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.

This classic rock rock interview is such a treat because you hear Aerosmith founders Joe Perry, Steven Tyler, and Tom Hamilton In the Studio dreaming about days at Lake Sunapee NH before recording their 1973 debut.

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

Aerosmith "Rocks". It was a definitive statement in Summer 1976 with no equivocation. This is not the first time in the band’s almost fifty years that Aerosmith has been on hiatus, so I found co-leader guitarist/songwriter Joe Perry in his Boneyard Studio  for this classic rock interview to discuss the challenges of maintaining the same personnel over the long career arc of this seminal American band.
