Greatest Comeback of all Time
Aerosmith was one of the most well known rock band of all time. They are mainly known for their amazing musical comeback between the late 1800s and 1900s. They were an influence on many other bands and were the ones that helped start the rock trend. They are also known as being the rowdiest band of that era.
Famous Aerosmith quote
After years of success at Colombia Records, the band started slipping. Drug addiction and other conflict led them to replace Joe Perry and Brad Whitford with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay. Then the band really started to slip. They had not had a good record in a long time and none of them were meeting expectations. They later took back Brad Whitford and Joe Perry in 1979 and 1984. Although it wasn't until 1986 and 1987 the they regained their popularity.
Picture of the whole band
It was 1986 that Aerosmith started their comeback. They had a comeback tour and released and album called "Done with Mirrors" although it didn't meet expectations. They were still on a roll. They made a collaboration with Run-D.M.C. and that really got the ball rolling. Then in 1987 when the released an album called, "Permanent Vacation" that ended up going multi-platinum.
Aerosmith preformed what is know now as one of the greatest band comebacks of all time. To this day Aerosmith still preforms and since 2001 they have toured almost every year except 2008. They are going down as one of the greatest bands in rock and roll history and even after 45 years of preforming they are still at it.
