Turning more towards power ballads without abandoning their hard-rocking base, Aerosmith conquered the music and video charts with such songs as “Angel,” “Love On an Elevator,” “Janie’s Got a Gun,” “Cryin’” and “Crazy” (which was voted the #1 All-Time Favorite Video by MTV viewers in 1994). In 1998, they scaled another career milestone when “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” became their first #1 single.
Aerosmith released its 13th studio album, Just Push Play, in the spring of 2001. It came on the heels of a halftime Superbowl performance that found them joined by – and yielding no quarter to – youthful upstarts Britney Spears, N’Sync, Mary J. Blige and Nelly. Meanwhile, their canon of great music and reputation as an unbeatable live act continues to grow. In 2004, the group released a blues album entitled Honkin’ on Bobo. The following year, Aerosmith issued a CD/DVD entitled Rockin’ the Joint. Then, in 2012 the band came out with the long awaited album Music from Another Dimension and hit the road for the Global Warming tour.
Aerosmith remains one of the most successful and influential American rock and roll bands. The group has sold more than 150 million albums, has scored nine Number One hits and has won four Grammys and 10 MTV Video Music Awards. Perhaps most notably, the same five musicians who came together as Aerosmith in 1970 are still together more than 40 years later, as their train keeps a-rolling with no end in sight.
