Badboys to Sweethearts

Updated on March 6, 2013

"It ain't easy
Livin' like a gypsy
Tell ya honey how I feel
I've been dreamin'
Floatin' down the stream n'
Losin' touch with all that's real"

...Oh, yeah! and I'm enjoying singing that song. That's "Mama Kin" from Aerosmith, by the way. That's one of my favorite songs ever. Every time I hear that, I feel like riding in a wagon and traveling around the world--and yes, Aerosmith is making me so crazy. I can't let a day pass without listening to their songs. There's something about this band that makes young girls like me fall in love with rock n' roll and even they are older than my father it doesn't stop me from loving and admiring them. I am so into their music, their songs, their lyrics and their personality, I mean, they have the moves, the swag, the voice, the talent and the confidence and when you say Rock and Roll--they are one of the best definitions of it.

But who are they really? Where did they come from? Here's a little background of the America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band.

Aerosmith is the band behind the hit song that became an all-time favorite "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" written by Diane Warren which is the official soundtrack of the movie Armageddon wherein Liv Tyler, Steven Tyler's daughter, is a cast. Aerosmith is an American rock band that was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970 they are sometimes referred to as "The Bad Boys from Boston". Their style, which is rooted in blues-based hard rock has come to also incorporate elements of pop, heavy metal, and rhythm and blues and has inspired many subsequent rock artists. Guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton, originally in a band together called the Jam Band, met up with singer Steven Tyler, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarist Ray Tabano, and formed Aerosmith. In 1971, Tabano was replaced by Brad Whitford, and the band began developing a following in Boston. The rest is history, as they say and for 42 years, Aerosmith has been rocking the whole world with their amazing talents, passion and music.

Here is a list of Aerosmith's 21 singles that chart in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100: source
