I always tell my friends and family that I am as messed up as I am because of these guys....lol. They were MUCH better stoned then clean.
I am very happy they are all cleaned up now, because they are still around and making music, BUT it is just not as raw, dirty, and raunchy as it was in the 70's and early 80's and that is what made them so damn good.
My all time favorite band to this very day. I don't think there is an Aerosmith album I don't own.....sorry Mom.
