I don't know why some people are giving this one star. This video wasn't released to rip people off. If what you want are costly music videos, don't buy this. It's called THE MAKING of PUMP. That means that it takes you in the studio and shows you the band writing and producing songs intended for the PUMP album. I'm very glad that this video was released (as well as the Chili Peppers' Funky Monks video) because it's an extremely rare view to see the band in. I love the album PUMP and the video made the album even better for me because I saw that the band put a lot of work and heart into the album and still had alot of fun in the process. This is like a non-glamerous version of MTV's "Making the..." shows. There aren't any special camera effects and the band isn't covered in makeup. It's just to show what the process of making the album was like. And I love it (and I'm not even a HUGE Aerosmith fan).

I thought the Making of Pump was an exceptional video. I wanted to see more than just concerts this time. I wanted to see what the band had to endure to get a new CD & video out. I have also purchased " Big Ones and Texas Jam " and so far the Making of Pump is a Five Star for me..It takes something very special for a band to stay together all these years and still be able to relate to the real word . Because of all the ups & downs Aerosmith has went through I believe it has made them what they are today. I highly recommend this video to all fans , you will not be disappointed..Rock & Roll forever with Aerosmith.

This DVD was exactly what I had hoped for. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't want a DVD of their video catalog. Although videos are great, they are "performance pieces" and you can catch those any time you want on MTV. This DVD brings you inside the studio .. and, in truth, inside the very creative minds of the members of the band. You get to see exactly what process they go thru to create their masterpieces. The DVD includes moments of brilliance, frustration, friendship, anger and sheer joy at realizing that their project is complete. All five members of the band are showcased and it becomes clear how each one is vital to the survival of the group as a whole. They candidly discuss their years of "drinking and drugging" .. and the lessons that they learned from it along the way. Being a musician myself, I was fascinated with the recording process and the methods the band-mates utilize to achieve a finished product. You get to hear the (now famous) hits in their infancy stages -- different lyrics, different music, etc. -- and the steps that were taken along the way to create the songs as we now know them. You see the anguish the guys go through when one of their songs is cut from an album. As Joe Perry puts it .. "these songs are their babies and somebody else gets to decide which of them will grow up .. and which ones won't".
Unlike the theatrical quality that you see in a produced music video, this DVD shows you the guys as they REALLY are. It even opens by hearing Joe Perry urinating in the toilet while he is talking to Steven about a song they are working on. It is clear that this is just an "ordinary" recording day for the guys. No stage make-up, no theatrics for the camera ..

"The making of "Pump" was created and taped at Rik Tinory Productions in Cohasset, Mass U.S.A.
The Band created and Pre-produced and composed and arranged and recorded most of "PumP" at this Legendary Studio and remained in the studio for an amazing, 18 months. The Band worked each and every day,sometimes for 11 hours a day,taking off only New Years Eve to play the Boston Garden(Fleet Center).
The Making of "Pump" which was taped with a Sony home Video Camera is an intregal part of Rock& Roll history,and these facts are vital to the band's past and future history ,accuracy is very important.
"Pump" was responsible for the return of the band in a huge way and resulted in Aerosmith's first"Grammy Award Feb 26,1991.
The band chose again to return for another 6 months for "Get A Grip".
Rik Tinory productions.provided a home for the band once again with privacy, solice and love. Aerosmith created some of it's greatest works at Rik Tinory productions. However, very little or no mention or credit was given for this tremendous effort,especially in the Aerosmith book ,"Walk This way". A token mention was given by Bass Player. Tom Hamilton, much to Rik's surprise,not a word however, from Steven Tyler, who Rik is extremely close. "It was more like a family situation and not just music business as usual". Steven and the guy's will always be special.
