Aero-Vederci Baby! – Aerosmith

One of the biggest band in rock music, made a farewell tour in 2016 called "AeroVederci Baby!" . And the fans have been still wating for the tour and album news with hope.

Formed in 1970, the band consists of the legendary Steven Tyler on vocals, Joe Perry on lead guitar, Brad Whitford on rhythm guitar, Tom Hamilton on bass guitar and Joey Kramer on drums. The interesting thing is that the group has continued with almost the same line-up for over 50 years. The band hasn't changed much at all, except for a few years apart.

The band, which had a big break with their first album Aerosmith and the sequel Get Your Wings, released in 1973, peaked with Toys In The Attic (1975) and Rocks (1976). Although they managed with Draw The Line (1977), they disappointed their fans with the next two albums (Nights In The Ruts, Rock In A Hard Place). The biggest reason for this was that Tyler fired Perry after an argument between them in 1979. The absence of Joe Perry in these two albums, the band's most mediocre albums throughout their 40-year history, clearly showed the value he added to the band. Capturing their former popularity with 4 albums (Permanent Vacation, Pump, Get A Grip and Nine Lives) they released from the late 80s to the end of the 90s, the group also managed to win a total of 21 Platinum Records. After those there were some average albums like Just Push And Play (2001) and Honkin'on Bobo (2004),

After eight years, 15th studio album, had the biggest hits such as Dream On, Walk This Way, Dude (Looks Like A Lady), Angel, Janie's Got a Gun, Cryin, Amazing, Crazy, "Music Front Anathor Dimension!" had 15 songs. Against all the critics, a few songs stood out in the album, such as Legendary Child, Lover Alot, What Could Have Been Love, Can't Stop Lovin'you.

During those eight years, Steven Tyler decided to leave the group in 2009 and Joe Perry was looking for a new vocalist. The reason was that none of his friends from the band called and asked about Tyler, who had fallen off the stage during a concert and was injured. In January 2010, Perry officially announced that they were looking for a vocalist and signed with Lenny Kravitz for a while, and continued to search for a vocalist for a while after Kravitz turned at the last moment. Tyler, on the other hand, sent a warning to the group through his lawyer and agreed to be a jury member in the American Idol voice contest without informing the other group members. All the controversies in 2011, Tyler's hospitalization for rehabilitation, despite the legal processes, the band reunited and continued to make music, after all the troubles were settled.

Music from Another Dimension, released in 2012! Steven Tyler has not been in the studio since their latest album, released a country-style solo album called We're All Somebody From Somewhere in 2016, but did not receive many positive reviews. Finally, in 2016 Aero-Vederci Baby! The band, which went on a farewell tour called (reference to Goodbye in Italian), is still waiting for new album news with hope.

Aerosmith was ranked #57 on Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Artists of All Time" list. In addition, 66.5 million of them are within the borders of the USA; They are the highest-selling American rock band of all time, with 150 million albums sold.
