It didn't exactly make them household names, but their 1973 debut album gave Aerosmith a solid foundation to build on, and when they reconvened in the studio to record the follow-up, they were faced with every young act's trickiest challenge: avoiding the sophomore jinx.
The February 2014 installment of the 100 percent fan-voted Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame has reached its final round, and it's a battle between two of the '70s' biggest bands, Aerosmith and Lynyrd Skynyrd. It's your turn to choose.
The early '80s were a rough time for Aerosmith, with Joe Perry leaving the group in 1979 and Brad Whitford following two years later -- and only one new album, the uneven 'Rock in a Hard Place,' released between 1980 and '85. But on Feb. 14, 1984, the seeds for the band's comeback were planted backstage at Boston's Orpheum Theatre.
