Released on March 1st, 1974, via Columbia Records, Aerosmith’s sophomore set, Get Your Wings, has withstood the test of time quite nicely since its initial release 45 years ago this week — still standing tall among some of rock’s greatest records.
This DVD captures one of America’s biggest rock bands in all their glory in front of a packed crowd at Donington Park, England. Read our review here.
Aerosmith celebrate the 40th anniversary of their groundbreaking Toys In The Attic album by heading out on a North American tour next month. Ahead of the tour, Pure Grain Audio caught up with Tom Hamilton from the band for a chat about the tour and the anniversary.
Aerosmith’s Music From Another Dimension was eleven years in the making and was originally slated to be released in August 2012. Prior to that time, I was given the opportunity to sit down with bassist, Tom Hamilton. At the time we discussed the 25th anniversary of their landmark album, Permanent Vacation, upcoming tour plans and much more. With the album delayed however, the interview was more window dressing than promo for the new disc. At the time it was promised that a second interview would happen and as we approached the release date and Aerosmith’s team came through without hesitation. In this, my second interview with Tom this year, he addresses the band’s duet with Carrie Underwood, working with Jack Douglas and whether or not he thinks KISS is a “comic book” band (as his bandmate, Steven Tyler, recently suggested).
