Aerosmith Gets Its Start

Aerosmith's story begins in 1970, before you were even born, in Sunapee, New Hampshire where lead singer Steven Tyler (the one with the ginormous lips) met guitarist Joe Perry working at an ice cream parlor. Soon after Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer joined the band, they headed for Boston. They were scooped up by Columbia Records and in '73 they released their first record (yes record, as in big, black, vinyl disc) Aerosmith. The name "Aerosmith" doesn't really mean anything they kinda just settled on the name cuz no one hated it.

Aerosmith Survives Success

Toys in the Attic (1975) introduced the hugely popular Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion. In 1976 came another record and a lot more of the "party like a rockstar" lifestyle. There were lots of drugs and alcohol, more drugs and alcohol, and the start of addictions. In 1985 Steven and Joe completed a drug-rehab program. A clean-and-sober Aerosmith re-recorded Walk this Way with rap duo Run DMC. It was an instant hit.

Aerosmith Rocks Another Generation

In 1989 Aerosmith released Pump with the huge hits, Janie's Got a Gun and Love in an Elevator. The follow-up was 1993's Get a Grip, which included the singles Cryin', Crazy and Amazing. All three videos starred Alicia Silverstone (from the movie Clueless). In the vid for Crazy Steven Tyler's own daughter Liv Tyler paired up with Alicia. The videos were funny, daring and hugely popular. In 2001 Aerosmith teamed up with the pop music fave *NSYNC for the rockin' E-Trade Super Bowl Halftime Show which included the debut of the single Jaded.

Oh my gosh. Its been so long since I've seen any halo fans like me, I'm definitely able to do voice overs in the cast but it kills me so much that I dont got my 360 live anymore but instead on xbox one. Hopefully I'll do something about it omg. Im in love with halo machinimas such as Red Vs Blue and so on.
