Re: When Did You Lose Respect for Steven Tyler?

It's strange to me but despite doing 101 things to sell out I HAVEN'T lost respect for Steven Tyler. He's never stood at the top of the heap, but he's never disapeared completely from the music scene either. Even when grunge killed glam or when American Idol pop took over the scene he's always found a place and remained visible.

Joe Perry Bar-B-Q sauce? That's another story.

I saw Aerosmith in the early 80s and they were horrendous and pretty much at rock bottom. They didn't even sell out an arena of 5000 people. So to say they are in decline, they already declined and came back. Now they are just old and irrelevant.

Bobo was ok, but not my type of music, so that leaves Just Push Play and Nine Lives which really, are not crap, but not as good as everything before Get a Grip. Aerosmith got a bad rep for Armageddon crap and now AI.
Everything after Draw the Line was crap.

Replace "early 80s" with "1978" and you have my experience (although the fabulous Omni was almost full ). They cancelled a bunch of 1977 tour dates; I held onto my tickets and went to see the rescheduled show in April 1978. Years later, I heard that the dates were cancelled because Perry or Tyler (or both) needed major detoxing. Whatever happened, the show was as listless and perfunctory as could be imagined.

Re: When Did You Lose Respect for Steven Tyler?

I've come close in recent years but he'll always have my respect for having a hand in one of the best rock albums of the 70's, Rocks. He was the only performer to visibly move McCartney at his kennedy centre tribute last year http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-0IW57a2gs
