Cryin’, I don’t want to miss a thing and Dream On are just parts from a playlist that nearly anyone around the globe can sing along to.
Steven Taylor (Lead vocals) Joe Perry (Lead Guitar), Tom Hamilton (Bass), Brad Whiteford (Guitar) and Joey Kramer (Drums) founded together one of the most famous rock bands in the world. The Band was founded back in 1970 and is still active now days.
The success came with the release of “Get a Grip” in 1993, an album that won two platinum awards. The album placed the band among the best rock bands in the world, leading to a successful tour in Europe.
For reasons that are unclear up to today, the band is said to be from Boston, even though non of its members lived isn’t originally from the city.
The name is also controversial: many have tried to clarify and find the reasoning for the special name. Urban legend has it that the name is taken from a mistype in Lewis Sinclair’s book “Arrowsmith”.In reality, Joey Kramer came up in the name back in high-school, when both him and his girlfriend back in the day were trying to come up with cool band names, with the term “Aero” in them.In 1998 the band performed “I don’t want to miss a thing” the theme song for “Armaggedon”, a huge blockbuster, and was a nominee for “Song of the year” in the Oscar awards.How symbolic was the movie to have Taylor’s daughter, Liv, as the movie star.
In 2007 the band members turned to a new business path and hosted with Sony the Playstaton game “Guitar Hero: Aerosmith” that had great success.
The game helped the band to get the recognition and buzz all over again, and led to a massive tour – and a great revenue of money, estimated with 200 million U.S dollars.
The band is counted to be the greatest of all times in the United States, selling over 150 million copies of the band’s albums world wide.In America alone, the band sold over 70 million copies, and won 25 gold albums, 18 Platinum albums and numerous awards and medals, placing them in the Rock n’ Roll hall of fame. These make it hard to believe if ever another band could come closer to what Aerosmith achieved.
