As co-founding members of AEROSMITH--America’s Greatest Rock & Roll Band--the songwriting team of Steven Tyler and Joe Perry have sold more than 150 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are the recipients of countless awards including four GRAMMYs, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music Awards, among many other honors.

With scores of multi-platinum albums, AEROSMITH continues to inspire generations to get their wings, to get a grip and to just push play. It’s no wonder their songs remain relevant to this day and they’re one of the most beloved bands of all time. The band’s 15th studio album released in 2012’s MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION! features songs penned by both Tyler and Perry, who also served as producers on the CD. Tyler and Perry are the iconic songwriters of Aerosmith.

Tyler is considered one of rock’s most recognizable and dynamic frontmen and Rolling Stone called him “one of the greatest singers of all time.” As the electrifying lead guitarist of Aerosmith, Perry has achieved permanent iconic stature in the pantheon of rock as he was immortalized in 2008 when AEROSMITH made history and created a cultural firestorm with the Activision released Guitar Hero®: Aerosmith®.

Four Grammy Awards for "Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal"
