Frontman Steven Tyler says the phrase was originally coined by jazz great Louis Armstrong to describe saxophone playing, yet Tyler admits there appears to be some double entendre Bad News Friend - Various - A Song A Day Keeps The Pain Away (File) with the phrase. With "Honkin' on Bobo" Aerosmith delivers the most riotous covers imaginable of classic blues tunes by the likes of Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley as well as a new Aerosmith original, "The Grind.
Perry's licks on Diddley's "Roadrunner" are hauntingly reminiscent of the sound that bled from Bo's signature triangular guitar, yet Tyler's guttural growls lend a whole new meaning to the lyrics: "Let's burn some rubber tonight. If this cut feels like Johnny B. Goode, that's because Johnson was Chuck Berry's piano player for decades. This mid-tempo track features ingenious high hat playing by drummer Joey Kramer, a strong bass line from Hamilton, mind-blowing riffs supplied by Whitford and Perry, and Tyler's percussive vocals which spit out lyrics like: "I'll prove to you Baby, that I ain't no square.
All of the subtle nuances you loved in Franklin's original are present in Aerosmith's updated version. A charming rendition of the rootsy Gospel song "Jesus on the Mainline," featuring Tyler's daughter Chelsea and Tracey Bonham on background vocals, as well as Perry I Want To Spend My Lifetime - Various - The Braun MTV Eurochart 99 - Volume 3 the bottle-neck slide guitar and Dobro, adds diversity to the album as does "Back, Back, Train," showcasing Perry's gorgeous lead vocals for a change.
PIC Coming off a lucrative decade-long run of power ballads, movie themes and pop singles, Aerosmith didn't have high commercial expectations for their new blues-covers collection, Honkin' on Bobo.
So they were as surprised as anyone when it entered the Billboard album chart at Number Five and soldcopies in its first week, nosing ahead of the other recent I Want To Spend My Lifetime - Various - The Braun MTV Eurochart 99 - Volume 3 blues project, Eric Clapton's Me and Mr.
When I Want To Spend My Lifetime - Various - The Braun MTV Eurochart 99 - Volume 3 tackled blues classics such as "Baby Please Don't Go" and "Road Runner," Steven Tyler says the key was to avoid anything that sounded like a preservation-minded blues tribute: "This is not about a resurgence of the blues. It was us discovering you can do these songs and have a whole lot of fun. It just plain feels good. To me, this is not a hit-driven record or a video-driven record.
And the track lends a really cool sound to the radio station. Aerosmith are currently playing an average of five Bobo tracks at every show on their arena tour, which lasts until late June.
Guitarist Joe Perry says they fit perfectly next to Aerosmith's originals. That's the thing about these songs: They're great vehicles for energy. It can't be denied. From the very beginning, the various members of the Boston, MA based quartet have found their musical style heavily influenced by the Blues. That includes guitarist Brad Whitford, who says he discovered a truly American musical form in a very roundabout way.
The British Invasion had a influence on me, as well as the rest of the band. They studied the Chicago and the Mississippi Delta styles and then gave it their own unique spin. Whitford says after a few weeks of much needed rest after the rigors of touring, the group decided to get together in an intimate setting and record an album that they always had wanted to make. We literally had libraries of this great music that we listened to.
Most of the stuff we ended up trying were keepers. By the end, we got to the point at the end of those sessions where we felt we could make just about anything work. We just wanted to see what made it tick, so we could make it work on the same level. Not many guys can play like that. We ended up using the samples and again, it added a lot to that song. He says as the band tours and plays those songs more, maybe that will change.
He also says that one favorite may not come to him until much later. Besides rocking old Blues standards, Aerosmith also has featured Tyler on the harmonica on a number of songs over the years. Initially acting solely as audience members, S. Proving multifaceted and promoting yet another album, these older gents just keep on struttin'! Aerosmith plays near there on Tuesday, May 4. The band sold 70, tickets in the first quarter of alone, I Want To Spend My Lifetime - Various - The Braun MTV Eurochart 99 - Volume 3 "Honkin' on Bobo" is perched comfortably at No.
More than just about any other band, Aerosmith has earned its survivor status with repeat comebacks born of tenacity and relentless touring. Last year's Aerosmith-Kiss doubleheader rated the No. Last week Perry lounged on his tour bus in Montreal prior to a concert and told his road manager to make a note that "Milk Cow Blues" should get worked into the band's setlist.

In our generation there are a lot of guys in a lot of bands that were influenced just the way we were, by hearing all the English bands playing what they played.
Perry has lived there 16 years, gradually adding on rooms and building a world-class recording studio. His main control room is a cozy 12 feet by 12 feet with a 7-foot ceiling.

It will show the band at the Boneyard, in concert - even at its Super Bowl gig that got overshadowed by Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction.
Joe Perry: I like hot food, and I like good food. I mean, I love Burger King, too…but with my hot sauce on it. From traveling so much, you get exposed to so many different flavors. There was a whole thing about hot sauce that started over 10 years ago…people were getting turned on to it.
But before that, I learned about Caribbean fiery sauce from being down there, and my travels. In Spain, we learned about the flavors in paella, and those kinds of things. We took aspects of different kinds of sauce that I liked and tried to incorporate that. JP: Yeah…that would be pretty cool. BC: Do you take the sauce on tour?
JP: Yeah, we actually sell it at the venues. We always have a case backstage. JP: Steven Tyler eats it every day. JP: I like it on eggs. When I have breakfast at about one in the afternoon…you can call it brunch, I call it breakfast.
It works great on burgers and steak. BC: Enough about sauce How has touring changed through the years? JP: Well, I think when the band got back together in the 80s, we started to get used to the fact that the demographics were different. In the 70s, we were all kind of around the same age…us and the audience.
Then you started to see that generation element. BC: Give me a snapshot of Aerosmith pre-fame…in Boston. JP: People would come to see us play, but I was spending more time at I Want To Spend My Lifetime - Various - The Braun MTV Eurochart 99 - Volume 3 girls dorm at Emerson than pretty much anything else. BC: Do you miss the Boston Garden? JP: Yeah…yeah, I do. It was great there. Not just to play, but I saw so many great bands there.
It really had a good vibe. But you know, we have the Orpheum. JP: We spend money as fast as we make it. We like living large. Chris Rattey is a content producer for Boston. Comments or questions can be e-mailed to crattey boston.
