Aerosmith: The Ultimate Illustrated History of the Boston Bad Boys Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With 40-plus years of flat-out, four-on-the-floor blues-based rock to their credit, Aerosmith are one of the greatest—and most mercurial—rock 'n' roll bands of all-time. This massive, illustrated celebration is the first of its kind to provide a front-row seat to the Boston Bad Boys’ entire career: scrapping their way across country in the 1970s, scrapping their way back to the top of the heap in the late 1980s, and scrapping with each other the entire way. Music journalist Richard Bienstock’s lively history of the band’s rise, fall, and rebirth is illustrated with nearly 400 photographs and collectibles, including gig posters, backstage passes, ticket stubs, 7-inch picture sleeves, and vintage T-shirts. The book also includes an extensive discography and assessments of each of the band’s studio albums, written by such distinguished rock scribes as Daniel Bukszpan, Neil Daniels, Chuck Eddy, Bill Holdship, Greg Kot, Martin Popoff, Bud Scoppa, Phil Sutcliffe, and Jaan Uhelszki. The result is a visually stunning portrait of the band many have called America’s best.

Synopsis:

One of Guitar World magazine's Top 15 rock books of 2011.

Aerosmith is one of the greatest rock 'n' roll bands of all-time. After their 1970s success was derailed by band strife and Dionysian excess, Boston's Bad Boys received a career jump-start in 1986 via their collaboration with hip-hop legends Run-DMC and producer Rick Rubin. This first complete illustrated history of one of the world's most successful and popular bands features a band history by music journalist Richard Bienstock and sidebar album reviews from a host of well-known music journalists, including Greg Kot, Jaan Uhelszki, Chuck Eddy, Bill Holdship, Martin Popoff, Daniel Bukszpan, and more. Illustrated throughout with hundreds of stunning performance and backstage photographs, as well as rare memorabilia, including gig posters, backstage passes, 7-inch picture sleeves, ticket stubs, and more.
