11:05 Marty Duda's Artist of the Week - Aerosmith

They’ve been through some ups and downs over the past 40 years, but incredibly all five members of Aerosmith are still together and making music. The band emerged out of Boston in the early 1970s and immediately got people’s with 'Dream On', the single from their 1973 debut album. By the middle of the '70s they practically defined American hard rock with albums like Toys In The Attic and Rocks. The band has survived its latest crisis…Steve Tyler’s stint on American Idol…and are in Dunedin on Wednesday.
