Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

Amerikaanse hardrockgroep opgericht in 1970 in Boston, Massachusetts: Steven Tyler (geb. als Steven Tallarico op 26-03-1948; zang), Joe Perry (geb. 10-09-1950; gitaar), Brad Whitford (geb. 23-02-1952; gitaar), Tom Hamilton (geb. 31-12-1951; basgitaar) en Joey Kramer (geb. 21-06-1950; drums).

Perry verlaat de groep in 1979 om met de Joe Perry Project voor zichzelf te beginnen. Jimmy Crespo vervangt hem. Whitford houdt het voor gezien in 1981 en richt met ex Ted Nugent-vocalist Derek St. Holmes Whitford/St. Holmes op. Perry en Whitford keren terug bij hun oude makkers in 1985.

De rapcrew Run-D.M.C. steekt Aerosmiths Walk This Way in 1986 in een nieuw jasje. Tyler en Perry leveren de vocale en gitaristische bijdragen.

Tylers dochter is actrice Liv Tyler, bekend van rollen in films als Stealing Beauty (1996), Armageddon (1998), Jersey Girl (2004) en de Lord of the Rings-trilogie.


Songtekst

I kept the right ones out
And let the wrong ones in
Had an angel of mercy
To see me through all my sins
There were times in my life
When I was goin' insane
Tryin' to walk through the pain

And when I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah, I tought I could leave
But couldn't get out the door
I was so sick n' tired
Of livin' a lie
I was wishing that I would die

(Chorus)
It's amazing
With the blink of an eye
That you finally see the light
It's amazing
That when the moment arrives
You know you'll be alright
It's amazing
And I'm saying a prayer
To the desperate hearts tonight

That one last shot's a Permanent Vacation
And a how high can you fly with broken wings
Life's a journey - not a destination
And I just can't tell just what tomorrow brings

You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk
But I just couldn't listen
To all that righteous talk
I was out on the street
Just tryin' to survive
Scratchin' to stay alive

(Chorus)

(To all of you people out there)
(Wherever you are - remember:)
(The light at the end of the tunnel)
(May be you - goodnight
