Aerosmith is known to many as a high drug use, alcoholic, and immoral band. I look at Aerosmith as the band that opened my horizons to rock n roll. I am a person who primarily listens to rap such as Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, 2Pac and many others. After hearing Aerosmith I wanted to listen to other bands that were just as good because I never gave rock a chance. Aerosmith led me to listen to Guns N Roses, Van Halen, Rolling Stones and many others. I quickly began to like some of these songs and I began to put these songs on my iPod.

Even when they broke up, Aerosmith came back stronger than ever in the 1980’s. I admire Aerosmith for getting through a lot of storms throughout their whole career.

Their last album “Honkin on Bobo” reached the peak of number five on the Billboards Top Albums. The first time listened to Aerosmith was in the fourth grade. When I first heard Aerosmith I was mesmerized beyond all recognition. Joe Perry’s guitar playing had such great rhythm and flow I just could not overlook it. Everytime Joey Kramer played the drums it was like he was going to war. My first song I listened to was Walk This Way with Aerosmith and RUN-DMC. I was always a fan of RUN-DMC and wondered who the rock band in this song was. I just could not believe that rock could sound that...
