ONCE A ROCKER, ALWAYS A ROCKER – A CASUAL GUIDE TO THE MUSIC OF AEROSMITH’S JOE PERRY

Undoubtedly the most important and successful band to come out of the U.S. of A., Aerosmith remain intact after more than four decades of down ‘n dirty rock ’n’ roll. They’ve been called ‘The Bad Boys From Boston’ and ‘America’s Greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll Band’ for a reason. Aerosmith are one of the best-selling American rock bands of all time, having sold over a hundred million albums worldwide. The Boston bad boys have been together for over forty years and like their English heroes, the Rolling Stones, they are still making music and touring well into the 2010s; albeit at a much slower pace than the old days.

However, outside of the band Joe Perry has enjoyed a solo career that has attained cult status. Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker explores the original Joe Perry Project, notably the superlative first two albums: Let The Music Do The Talking and I’ve Got The Rock ’N’ Rolls Again as well as 1983’s less well-received Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker. Perry restarted his solo career in the noughties with 2005’s self-titled album and 2009’s Have Guitar, Will Travel and more recently, the 2014 EP, Joe Perry’s Merry Christmas. But it’s those first two albums that really made an impression.

Aerosmith: Live in Helsinki, Finland.

November 6th, 2007

AEROSMITH

07.07 2007

Hartwall Arena, Helsinki

The Boston based Aerosmith was one of the biggest rock bands of the ’70s. Even then the band had a unique ability to pull off both ballads and rockers which brought them a string of gold and platinum albums. “Toys in the Attic”, “Rocks” and “Draw the Line” amongst others are undeniable classics. After a while though, things started to change. In the early ’80s, the group lost their original lineup and soon after their audiences started to dissipate while some of the members suffered from serious intoxicant problems. As a result they were nearly destroyed, but somehow managed to pull their act together and in the late ’80s accomplish one of the most successful comebacks in history. Returning to the top of the charts with a series of albums like “Pump” and “Get a Grip”, with the help of MTV, they even managed to top the sales of their ’70s albums. To this day Aerosmith remains one of the biggest live acts in the rock world.
