Aerosmith is an American rock band, formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970 by Steven Tyler (Vocals, Harmonica, Piano, Percussion), Joe Perry (Lead Guitar), Brad Whitford (Rhythm Guitar), Tom Hamilton (Six String Bass) and Joey Kramer (Drums). Their style, which is rooted in blues-based hard rock, has come to also incorporate elements of pop, heavy metal, and rhythm and blues, and has inspired many subsequent rock artists. The group is the best-selling American hard rock band of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide, including over 70 million records in the United States alone. With 25 gold albums, 18 platinum albums, and 12 multi-platinum albums, they hold the record for the most total certifications by an American band and are tied for the most multi-platinum albums by an American band.
Links To Peel
Peel played tracks from the band's early albums in the first part of the 1970's, before the punk era. However, he rarely played their material after that, but did play one of the group's singles in the spring of 1993, when he took over from Jakki Brambles' shows in the afternoon, whilst she was on holiday.
