Aerosmith played their first show at Nipmuc Regional High School in Mendon, Mass on November 6, 1970. How did they land the gig? Joe Perry’s mom knew someone who worked for the school. Way to go, Mrs. Perry!

Just as Aerosmith has announced “Peace Out” The Farewell Tour, let us look at The 10 Best Selling Aerosmith Albums.  In all the band has sold as of 2021 has sold 69.5 Million Albums.  Not bad for a little band from Boston.

Formed in 1971 in Boston, Aerosmith,  Steven Tyler, lead vocals, harmonica, and piano.   Joe Perry is on guitar. Tom Hamilton on bass, Joey Kramer on the drums, and Brad Whitford on guitar.   Some have Aerosmith  The Bad Boys from Boston and America’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band.  Both would be the truth.

It’s rumored that the band reportedly spent afternoons getting high and watching Three Stooges reruns.   One day, they had a post-Stooges meeting to try to come up with a name.  Joey Kramer, co-founder, and drummer for Aerosmith is widely credited as the mastermind behind the band name  after listening to Harry Nilsson’s album Aerial Ballet

So after nearly 50 years, millions of albums sold, gold and platinum records, world tours, number one albums and number one songs, Aerosmith has announced their “Peace Out” Farewell Tour.
