In 1973 friends from Boston got together and created one of the earliest official Rock & Roll “Power Ballets”. Dream On, which got a lot of air play, was unique for the time and certainly not representative of the rest of Aerosmith’s debut album. Tearing a page from Zepplin’s success with Stairway, and looking and sounding a lot like the Rolling Stones of the early seventies, Aerosmith stumbled out of the local bar scene with a raunchy, ratty sound that would help them create several great records throughout the rest of the decade.
You can’t judge this book by its cover. This one is great, very apropos, for running through the dirt, rain and mud.
