With 40-plus years of flat-out, four-on-the-floor blues-based rock to their credit, Aerosmith are one of the greatest—and most mercurial—rock 'n' roll bands of all-time. This massive, illustrated celebration is the first of its kind to provide a front-row seat to the Boston Bad Boys’ entire career: scrapping their way across country in the 1970s, scrapping their way back to the top of the heap in the late 1980s, and scrapping with each other the entire way. Music journalist Richard Bienstock’s lively history of the band’s rise, fall, and rebirth is illustrated with nearly 400 photographs and collectibles, including gig posters, backstage passes, ticket stubs, 7-inch picture sleeves, and vintage T-shirts. The book also includes an extensive discography and assessments of each of the band’s studio albums, written by such distinguished rock scribes as Daniel Bukszpan, Neil Daniels, Chuck Eddy, Bill Holdship, Greg Kot, Martin Popoff, Bud Scoppa, Phil Sutcliffe, and Jaan Uhelszki. The result is a visually stunning portrait of the band many have called America’s best.
Richard Bienstock is an editor with Guitar World and Guitar Aficionado magazines and the author of Aerosmith: The Ultimate Illustrated History (Voyageur Press, 2011) and Slash: An Intimate Portrait (Insight Editions, 2012).
It is a great coffee table book with great pics and lots of good information on the band.
The book had some great pictures, even for people our age who grew up with the band, and perfect as a gift.
You also get some really interesting text from each year, documenting the albums & history of that time.
