AEROSMITH Reflect On 43 Years Of Rock - "We've Been Strung Out And
Sober, We've Sold In And We've Sold Out, Some Days We Didn't Even Sell
At All... What Matters Is We're Still Together As A Band"; New Q&A

AEROSMITH legends Steven Tyler and Joe Perry will be honored with the
Founder's Award for songwriting at this year's ASCAP Expo, to be held
next week in Los Angeles. It's part of a banner spring for the duo, who
were also selected for induction into the Songwriting Hall Of Fame and
are co-headlining in Australia with VAN HALEN. Shortly before takeoff,
the veteran rockers sat down with Rolling Stone at NightBird Recording
Studios in West Hollywood, where they discussed the pleasures of live
performance and how they dealt with early criticism, which Tyler admits,
"Hurt the first few years."

Q: Awards offer an opportunity to reflect. When you look back, which moments stand out?

Steven Tyler: "We come from an era when 'Sweet Emotion' and 'Back In
The Saddle' were considered dark and we weren't accepted. We were just a
B-side album band. We were never a singles band. Then the 80s came
along with 'Dude (Looks Like A Lady)'. I listen to that now and I think,
'What?' It's fun to hear, kind of like 'Wooly Bully', but were we
trying too hard to be a singles band? It doesn't fucking matter. We've
been strung out and sober. We've sold in and we've sold out. Some days
we didn't even sell at all. What matters is we're still together as a

Joe Perry: "One of the things that really hits the nail on the head
is the time Steven and I got a phone call from our manager telling us we
went to number one with 'I Don't Want To Miss A Thing'. That was our
first number one single. We looked at each other and said, 'Holy shit!
That's great, but I thought for sure we had a number one in there
somewhere.' And then we just put the phone down and went back to what we
were doing. We've been such a live band for so many years, the only
time I remember thinking, 'Wow, we've got something,' is when we aimed
for something that would carry the day live. 'Cause that's what we do –
we're here to entertain the crowd."


Tyler and Perry will be inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall Of
Fame at this year's Opening Night at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday,
June 22nd, at 8 PM.

The songwriting team have sold more than 150 million albums
worldwide, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and are

American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music
Awards, among many other honors. Tyler and Perry first appeared at the
Hollywood Bowl in May of 1999, with subsequent appearances in 2002, 2006
and last year's sold-out performance.

Following their induction during this season's Hollywood Bowl
Opening Night concert, Tyler and Perry will perform with the Hollywood
Bowl Orchestra, led by Thomas Wilkins. Other special guests are to be
