When a crowd of cops invaded Aerosmith's Oct. 3, 1978, concert in Fort Wayne, Ind., they found dozens of kids possessing pot. All of them were dragged out of the show, which was part of the band's tour in support of its recently released 'Live Bootleg!' album.
You could make a strong case that 1978 was “the year of the live album,” with a slew of now-legendary releases including AC/DC’s ‘If You Want Blood (You’ve Got it),’ The Band’s ‘Last Waltz,’ Blue Oyster Cult’s ‘Some Enchanted Evening,’ David Bowi
Fans at Tootsie's in Nashville got a shock last weekend when Steven Tyler emerged from the crowd to join Keith Urban on stage. The country superstar was playing the honky tonk as part of a promotional tour for his new 'Fuse' album when he summoned the Aerosmith singer with the riff from 'La Grange' by ZZ Top.
It may have taken them 25 years to do it, but it finally happened. On Sept. 5, 1998, Aerosmith's 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. It remains the group's only No. 1 single.
Classic rock is about heavy hooks, power chords and tight harmonies. But it’s also about letting loose and enjoying the good times. And there’s no better time for that than Friday evening, when we pick up our paycheck, punch out of work and enjoy a couple days of much-needed rest and relaxation.
Aerosmith were forced to cancel a pair of scheduled concerts this week in Shanghai and Taipei. The band was to play two music festivals on Wednesday (Aug. 21) and Saturday (Aug. 24) in China and Taiwan, but withdrew after the local concert promoter was unable to meet contractual obligations.
While Aerosmith fans settle in and wait for their next album of new material, they can pass the time with 'Rock for the Rising Sun,' a just-released live DVD that, as guitarist Brad Whitford sees it, offers the culmination of a long love affair between the band and its Japanese fans.
