Aerosmith: History of the Rock Band
Formed in 1970 in Boston, Massachusetts, Aerosmith was signed to Columbia Records after performing local shows for a few years. They became stars only with their 3rd album and the single “Sweet Emotion” in 1975. Though their success was tainted by their sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyles, the band kept cranking out the hits. Their live shows sold well and their music videos were extremely popular in the 90s. Despite health issues, band tensions and outside projects, the band returned to the studio in the new century and continued to make music. In this WatchMojo.com video, we take a look at the history of Aerosmith.

The Future is Binary – Rock band Aerosmith formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970, when vocalist Steven Tyler partnered with guitarist Joe Perry, bassist Tom Hamilton and drummer Joey Kramer. After playing local shows together, they added rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford to the line-up the next year.
Soon came a Columbia Records deal, and Aerosmith’s 1973 self-titled debut. Critics liked it, but the blues rock album barely cracked Billboard. However, the effort did contain the future top ten smash “Dream On.”
