I'd add Get Your Wings to that. That is their ultimate trio before they went downhill.

As you say they are a legendary rock band, and recording that sappy garbage written by a professional easy listening song writer takes them down 6 pegs on the rock credibility ladder.

I have always been a fan, its tough not to be growing up near Boston, and as phanan mentioned the 70's were their hey day, the resurrection has had its high points (Pump) and its low (Super Bowl, Armageddon). They are still very good live, I last saw them a couple of years ago, have seen them 9-10 times total, and may see them in September...but I'd like to forget that the whole Diane Warren relationship ever existed. Rock bands write and record their own material. How would we feel if U2 started having songs written for them with an eye towards #1 singles?
Did you know that Aerosmith originally refused when initially approached to do a song for the Armageddon soundtrack, and that only after Liv Tyler got a role in the film did the band agree to it, as a favor to Steven's daughter?

The point is they should have written their own tune for the soundtrack.

Its funny. we were just talking about them the other day. My husband and I were trying to figure out what band other than the Rolling Stones had been around the longest. I'm a big Rush fan, so I said well Rush had and he said "what about Aerosmith?" and I was like -"oh, yeay - I forgot all about them".

anyway, I'd read that Aerosmith haven't written any of their songs since the mid-80's. I don't know if that's true or not. I do like alot of their 70's material though (sweet emotion in particular).

I LOVE Aerosmith. Just such a great, fun band. One of the best live shows I've ever seen (saw them twice on their Honkin' on Bobo tour)

I agree, their songs have not been as good lately. But the early stuff. and I hate the fact that it seems like they are just touring for the money, but as long as they are still good and Steven is still jumping around that stage, I would go see them.

It's ironic, you know. I read their autobigraphy "Walk This Way" and if memory serves, in the early days Joe Perry was the band member who was the one who said that "rock bands shouldn't do ballads" or something to that effect. He was dead-set againt ballads and was very apprehensive about doing Dream On.

Obviously, Perry's stance must have softened over the years.

This thread made me realize I never imported any Aerosmith into my itunes. Importing and listening to Nine Lives right now.

Eat the Rich made my first Desert Island list, that's such a fun song.

But since '87, for every Eat the Rich, there's about 4 Cryin's

Other than Livin' On The Edge which I absolutely love (both song and video), Eat The Rich and Fever are 2 of my favorite songs on Get A Grip. They're both loads of fun and great driving songs too!
