Songfacts – Brad Whitford Of Aerosmith

Leslie Michele Derrough has interviewed Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford.

Here is an excerpt:

There is no doubt that Aerosmith are American musical icons. They have survived drugs, hedonism, hit records, world tours, internecine conflict, marriages, divorces, car wrecks, MTV, cancer, American Idol, music industry upheaval, bad managers, stolen equipment, egos and the Sgt. Pepper movie. Yet, they are still standing.

With the release of the DVD Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014, the filmmakers have captured the band in all their glory, where the music does the talking, proving once and for all what an electrifying live band Aerosmith is, and has been, since their formation in the early ’70s when they were young bucks in Boston playing the clubs. Their journey from bar band to superstardom is a tale of perseverance, faith, and an arsenal of captivating songs that still draw thousands to concerts.
