Biography

Aerosmith was formed in 1970, when vocalist Steven Tyler met guitarist Joe Perry while working at an ice cream parlor. Bassist Tom Hamilton and guitarist Ray Tabano, joined the group, but Ray was replaced by Brad Whitford and they added drummer Joey Kramer.

In 1972 they landed a record contract with Columbia Records. As a result, Aerosmith's self-titled debut album was released in the fall of 1973.

Areosmith spent time touring the U.S. and working on their secound album Get Your Wings, it spent a total of 86 weeks on the charts.

Aerosmith's third record, 1975's Toys in the Attic, was their breakthrough album their sound was pure rock n roll, and the the album hit number 11. Its success prompted the re-release of the power ballad "Dream On," which shot into the Top Ten in early 1976. Both Aerosmith and Get Your Wings climbed back up the charts in the wake of Toys in the Attic. "Walk This Way," the final single from Toys in the Attic, was released around the time of the group's new 1976 album, Rocks. Although it didn't feature a Top Ten hit like "Walk This Way," Rocks went platinum quickly, peaking at number three.

In early 1977, Aerosmith took a break and prepared material for their fifth album. In addition to another tour in 1978, the band appeared in the movie Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, performing "Come Together," which eventually became a number 23 hit. Aerosmith recorded Night in the Ruts in 1979, releasing the record at the end of the year. Brad Whitford left the group in early 1980, forming the Whitsford-St. Holmes Band with former Ted Nugent guitarist Derek St. Holmes.

As Aerosmith regrouped with new guitarists Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay, the band released Aerosmith's Greatest Hits in late 1980; the record would eventually sell over six million copies.

Pump, released in 1989, continued the band's winning streak, reaching number five, selling over four million copies, and spawning the Top Ten singles "Love in an Elevator," "Janie's Got a Gun," and "What It Takes."

Aerosmith released Get a Grip in 1993. The album was as successful as the band's previous two records, featuring the hit singles "Livin' on the Edge," "Cryin'," and "Amazing." In 1994, Aerosmith released Big Ones, a compilation of hits from their Geffen years which fulfilled their contract with the label; it went double platinum shortly after its release.

Lyrics

Word to the Wise

Written By: Chadley Kolb

I gotta get up, gotta go down, gotta do my 9 to 5.
We're like a bunch of bees working on the hive.
Dont get no honey, and were working just to stay alive.

I got a boss, he's got a red face, and he's always very loud.
I've got a job that I hate, and It dont make me proud. (but I )
Try to believe that there is plenty treasure to be found.

Aint no big surprise, just a little word to the wise,
you gotta keep your eyes on the prize

And when I get home from the night I feel an aching in my bones.
I dont mind the fight so throw your sticks and stones,
But I want to know if we really reap just what we sow.

Hey John Dillenger, I am a villager,
trapped behind these city walls.
Share your secrets now, let it all hang out,
once and for all.
I dont want the money, but I have to take it anyway.

Aint no big surprise, just a little word to the wise,
you gotta keep your eyes on the prize.

Heartland

Written By: Chadley Kolb

My daddy gone and shamed us;
put my family down.
My daddy gone and shamed us;
words all over town.
Well he knows just where I live,
but he aint never comes around.

My mamma was a young girl
trying to learn the ways of the world.
She had to grow up too damn fast.
Thank the lord she was made to last.

Well, along comes Mr. Toughguy;
says 'Im your daddy now lad'
Well, along comes Mr. Toughguy
and he used to treat me so bad.
He'd say 'Boy you shut your mouth, you aint had it like I had."

Ive grown a little bitter, from deep seeds
yonder in the weeds.
But I know a little better, and the harvest will be sweet.
So I best be getting on, before its starts to freeze.
