Aerosmith "Toys In The Attic"
Released on this day in 1975. One of Heavy Metal Thursday's absolute earliest exposures to and memories of that glorious noise that's way down deep, still.
Aerosmith, the "Bad boys from Boston," is Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer. Aerosmith is an American Rock & Roll icon. To disagree is idiotic. You can get out and walk.
Singles released from this album, "Sweet Emotion," "Walk This Way," and "You See Me Crying," are the soundtrack for every kid who wasn't lame in the mid-1970s. Timeless Rock and Roll classics.
"Sweet Emotion," is among the greatest Hard Rock songs."Walk This Way," features the highly recognizable drum intro and easily one of the most iconic Rock & Roll guitar riffs of all time.
"Toys In The Attic," is another album we consider mandatory for anybody who thinks their opinion has weight around here.
The first annual Texxas World Music Festival, known as the "Texxas Jam," Cotton Bowl, Dallas, Texas. Summertime, 1978....be there or be square.
"Walk This Way"
"Toys In The Attic"
"Toys In The Attic," April 8, 1975, is 100% American Rock & Roll. This formula of blues driven Hard Rock, a solid groove, twin guitars and the kind of front man your momma don't like but she can't stop looking at, either, would inspire too many future Rock & Roll bands to count. Something about that big ten inch....record.
