For almost four decades, Aerosmith has managed to accomplish what few bands are capable of: making a career out of rock ‘n’ roll.
“You don’t have to be a big fan to shake your head and wonder how we do it,” Joe Perry told What’s On. “How we haven’t dropped off or died of an overdose…the trials and tribulations we’ve all gone through and still carried on. It’s the culture of rock ‘n’ roll to have a couple hit singles and disappear or break up or OD, but we’re proof it doesn’t have to be that way. You can survive the drug issues. You can have a career at this.”
