    Aerosmith's coming up on a 50th anniversary, and will be doing a series of shows in Vegas to commemorate. I for one will make that long trip from Alaska! They killed it on the Today show, and i thought I'd share a few pictures. This was during of course "Sweet Emotion." Note that Tom Hamilton likes Gallien Krueger double stacks...

    It’s a good thing they found that van just in time.

    For anyone interested, check out Steven Tyler's appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience (podcast) from a few months ago. It's available on YouTube... just go there and search for "Steven Tyler" + "Joe Rogan."

    Rogan is a superb interviewer. The man is interested in all things cool and is simply hungry for knowledge. Great show!

    I'm always amazed what goes on in the heads of classic rockers. The result of what acid trips do to people is fascinating.

    Here's a funny 3 minute edit of that interview.

  10. There has been some controversy around that van find, regarding the age of the painted cartoon character on the side not looking aged at all compared to the finish on the rest of the body, and the fact that the Pickers just happened to stumble upon it just as the band is reaching a milestone in its history.

    Still very cool, though. The band bought the van back for $25k. Pretty steep for a rusted hulk, but when you're a rock star... Maybe they will spring for a full restoration job too?

    Everyone with snarky comments watch some rock and roll when it was REAL rock and roll. This is what it was about and nothing can touch it today.

    Wasn't Tom Hamilton very sick a while back? I recall he had to leave in the middle of a tour. If so, I am glad to see he is back and able to play again.

    I saw them in a Vegas last summer at their venue in the Park MGM. Great show but, holy crap were they loud. Bring ear protection!
