The band started in 1970 and began developing a following in their hometown of Boston. By 1972 they were signed to Columbia Records, and they released several multi-platinum albums. At the end of the 70s they were established as one of the biggest rock bands in the world and had a loyal fan base, often referred to as the “Blue Army”. Guitarist Joe Perry said, "we drove up to the gig and the line went around the building, long-haired teenage boys wearing blue denim jackets and jeans. An army of blue jeans. Our people." Their Blue Army have supported them for over 40 years, buying Aerosmith tickets to see the band wherever they went.

After that, drugs and alcohol nearly destroyed the band and they found their audience decreasing. Between 1980-1987 their commercial success was limited, however they signed to Geffen Records in 84 and finally released the album Permanent Vacation in 87, which was a phenomenal success. This regained them the popularity they had enjoyed in the 70s and was followed by more multi-platinum albums (Pump [1989], Get a Grip [1993], Nine Lives [1997]). Their comeback has been described as one of the most extraordinary and significant in rock history, causing fans everywhere to clamour for Aerosmith tickets for the impressive live shows.

In 2001 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and they are officially the best-selling American rock band of all time, with sales of over 150 million albums globally. Their one and only number one single was I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing, which earned them an Academy Award nomination and stayed at the top of the charts for four weeks. It was featured on the soundtrack to Armageddon, which starred Tyler’s daughter, Liv.

After rumours of Tyler’s departure were rife, he has confirmed he will not be leaving the band, and will be performing at the 2010 Download festival with them and also on their Cocked, Locked and Ready to Rock tour this year.
