I just love this song so much.
I cannot think of a single Aerosmith song I don't like.
I'm not a classic rock player, but I grew up with the music, and Steven Tyler is one of the greatest rock singers of all time, especially now at his age. May he rock as long as he wants.
I always liked em’.
Old stuff, new stuff, don’t matta!
Great memorable riff rock, with a unique, wild and amazing singer.
I’ve dug em’ since I was in high school, in the middle Jurassic period.
Long(er) may they wave!
I was a teenager blundering my way through Dream On when the Pentatonic scale suddenly clicked in my head and all sorts of musical doors swung open. So this album occupies a special place in my journey.
My first concert without my Mom accompanying me was Aerosmith Toys in the Attic Tour in 75-76.
I like old better than new, but they’re pretty dang good no matter what era that you’re looking at...and live, they were dang near stupendous!
I still think Brad gets overlooked too much—I ain’t dissin’ Joe, Brad’s The Man, imho...
After all these years, I still get a kick out of hearing this song done live. Fun, fun, fun!
Not a big fan of the Desmond Child/Diane Warren years but Toys marked my transition from Elton to the harder stuff.
I still think Live Bootleg is the best live rock album. Polished it ain’t.
Aerosmith-Get Your Wings-Toys-Rocks..always on my turntable in the 70's
I saw them when they were just kids, opening for some name act at Winterland in SF. They didn't even have a record out. The thing I remember best is that the lead guitar player would be playing along, and when it was time for his solo bit, he would run back to his stack and turn up the volume knob. Then he would play his bit, and turn the knob back down again. It was cute!
Their first couple were the best. I almost seen them twice in the late 70s-early 80s. They walked off stage both times. Some small incidents involving S.T. and an M-80 and then a bottle. They couldn't handle Philly.
Their first four albums were stellar.
I think I had and wore all of them in every format available: 8-track, cassette,LP and CD.
Now I have all favorite albums backed up as .wav files on 2 mirrored flash hard drives.
The idea for starting this thread came from some footage they showed on the band in the studio recording THIS song.
And I was going "Oh yeah! Totally love that one and now I want to hear it and hear it LOUD!"
So as I got ready for my ablutions, I got out a greatest hits album and was singing along at the top of my lungs.
But I also sang along to these.
Somebody mentioned Brad as being the secret weapon of the band, so this song should also be mentioned.
Just good old fashioned Rock N Roll.
Heck, let me break a lance for the Jimmy Crespo era.
And the Joe Perry Project was pretty freaking killer too!
I am a huge ‘smith fan! Everything through Pump is stellar...even Night In The Ruts and the Crespo album...and the oft-dissed Draw the Line is just nasty dirt on side two...Get It Up, Bright Light Fright, Sight For Sore Eyes, Milk Cow Blues....
Live Bootleg is of Ya-Ya’s quality. Listen on headphones to Lord of The Thighs for a fun guitar clinic from both Joe and Brad...Brad had a MONSTROUS live tone in the late 70s. Bill Lawrence buckers into Music Man amps. And the JP Project? So damn good.
I saw them in KC back in 2014 or so and they just killed it.
And Tom Hamilton On Bass? Live his bass line under Perry’s solo on the song Toys in The Attic.
Yes, I am a fan. I learned to play guitar in 1978 playing along with Bootleg. Perry taught me how to look while I play.
Forgot to mention my love for Honkin’ On Bobo In 2004. They got their guitar mojo back on that album. Just pure rockin’ blues.
I can. I love these guys when SE came out, later when I found out that Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter did the guitar work on that song my respect for them fell to my socks. Then they became a power ballad song band, and well... that was it.
Great band. I got to see them the week Dream On hit the radio, in the summer of '73. They were doing a run-through for their first big tour at the Wayland High School basketball gym. I think tickets were $2.50. Awesome show, I became a forever fan.
This song still gives me chills.
