Aerosmith Wrote ‘Walk This Way’ While Waiting For Cocaine Delivery, Says Steven Tyler
We all know that drugs have been a major component in the lives of rock and rollers since the early sixties (though now it's getting hip to be in recovery). Now Aerosmith details that one of their biggest hits "Walk this Way," was written by accident. While they were waiting on one of many cocaine deliveries.""We were all waiting for a load of blow to come," Tyler writes in a new blog for NME. "[Guitarist] Joe Perry was onstage and I ran up onstage and starting jamming with him. Who knew that from jamming with Joe, it would become so big and do what it did?"
So I guess one is to assume the cocaine arrived, the song became platinum, and Steve Tyler went into rehab. Ah yes the life of a rock star. All you have to do is "Walk This Way."
