    LIVING ON THE EDGE!

    I remember it was on all the time when I was in second grade. There were other songs that came and went that I liked, but living on the edhe has an edge to it for me.

    Album, BIG ONES.... so I dont have to pick

    Sweet Emotion- the way that song starts with the muted( or whatever they were) vocals leading up to that cymbal crash was pure rock heaven, still brings chills when I dig out the album and play it LOUD!

    ...their 1st 3 albums? :)

    Back in the day, when nobody knew who they were, I had the debut. The guitarist in my garage band had Get Your Wings & Toys. I recall "Train Kept A-Rollin'" as a KO…I always liked "Mama Kin", "Walking The Dog", "Lord Of The Thighs", "Same Old Song & Dance" (w/ the Brecker Bros), "Walk This Way"…

    Favorite song is probably "No More No More", which is also one of Steven Tyler's favorites. My favorite album is a three way tie between Toys In The Attic, Rocks and Live Bootleg.

    Not a huge fan, but I remember buying Get a Grip on cassette. It was one of the first albums I bought.

    Steven Tyler's rendition of She Came In Through the Bathroom Window and Golden Slumbers at the Kennedy center honors were amazing.

    Wow... Nobody likes the new(ish) stuff?

    My favorite album is Just Push Play. I like every song on that CD but Jaded. Beyond Beautiful is an awesome tune for the hammer dulcimer!

    Honkin on BoBo has some great bluesy stuff. You Gotta Move is a fantastic tune. So is Road Runner, Eyesight to the Blind, The Grind. I don't think they have a bad tune on that CD.

    Every song on Big Ones is a must have, and so is 9 lives, toys in the attic and Get your wings. Of course, if you have those, you also need Pump, Rocks and Draw the line.

    Huh! It looks like I'm an Aerosmith fan.

    Go figure!

    Favorite album: Rocks
    Favorite song: "Lick and a Promise" or "Combination"

    I don't really like any Aerosmith albums after "Done With Mirrors" which was their last album before they went clean. After that, they started turning out really slick rock-pop and then turned into a prom band. They wrote more interesting songs when they were young and all strung-out on drugs.

    Album:Rocks
    Song:Kings & Queens (from Draw the Line)

    I also have to agree with AaronVonRock.

    Some decent songs after Done With Mirrors, (And I didn't see them live until well after that.), but the albums were weak overall.

    I would support a law saying nobody can ever cover "Don't Want to Miss a Thing" again-and also restrictions on the original version as well.-Worst Aerosmith song ever, and then some.

    Favorite song is the opening trio on Pump. Young Lust straight into FINE into Love in an Elevator.

    Best album is Rocks, then Pump.

    I also love Nine Lives, and the live cut of Train Kept a Rollin into Draw the Line is awesome.
