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 took a course in hallelujah
I went to night school for the blues
I took some stuff they said would cool ya
But nothing seemed to light my fuse

But it's all in the past
Like a check that's in the mail
She was a tall whiskey glass
I was an old hound dog that just loved to chase his tail

Until I met a - blind man
Who taught me how to see
A blind man
Who could change night into day
And if ah, I can
I'm gonna make you come with me, yeah
Because here comes the sun and we'll be chasing all the clouds away
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I've had some lovers like a joy ride
Some things are never what they seem
My heaven's turned into a landslide
I thank God I woke up from the dream

I met a - blind man
Who taught me how to see, yeah
A blind man
Who could change night into day
And if ah, I can
I'm gonna make you come with me, yeah
Because here comes the sun and we'll be chasing all the clouds away

The way bees chase honey
And drink all the flowers dry
We'll be saving us a little money
And if that don't do it, yeah, I know the reason why

Don't make no sense lightin' candles
There's too much moonlight in our eyes

I met a - blind man
Who taught me how to see, yeah
Blind man
Who could change night into day
And if ah, I can
I'm gonna make you come with me, yeah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, yeah
Because here comes the sun
Ain't no surprise
Ain't no doubt about it
Gonna open up your eyes

Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
