Despite the recent heart issues afflicting drummer Joey Kramer that caused the cancellation of a recent show in California, the seemingly ageless Aerosmith make their way back to Dallas this Friday. Surprisingly, out of all of the bands that had their heyday in the '70s, Aerosmith remains one of the few that have managed to make decent music in the decades since. The band’s continued popularity is a statement to the enduring quality of Steven Tyler’s sneering vocals and Joe Perry’s always top-notch guitar playing. Of course, classic songs such as “Walk This Way,” “Back in the Saddle Again” and “Sweet Emotion” don’t hurt either.
