AC/DC is a prime example of taking that blues rock thing and just living in that world. They only really move the furniture around a little on each album, but it still works.

After a while, no matter how much you love any pop song, you're going to get tired of it. That's the way it is with any entertainment. It's good when you first hear it or see it, you like it for a while, then it gets old. It gets chewed up and spit out and it's done.

Tags: Good, Love, Tired

'Back In The Saddle' - I never realised what a good riff that was, or at least how much it satisfied me. And when we play it live, it comes across much better than I ever expected it to.

Tags: Expected, Good, Satisfied

Every time I get in front of an audience, I do the best I can. I really don't look at it like, you know, 'This is gonna be this crowd, or that crowd.' If anything, I think about the demographics only because of what songs will entertain more than others.

Tags: Best, Others, Time

Five years after Aerosmith got back together, I realized how fragile we are as humans. There was a time I thought we were bulletproof, but then things happened and I came to the realization that I had to play every gig as if it was my last show. You have to start thinking that way, because you never know what's going to happen next.

Tags: Thinking, Time, Together

For years I've wanted to find some guys that I could work with, because I realized a long time ago that I can do a lot of things other than Aerosmith.

Tags: Time, Wanted, Work

I collect firearms, and I've got a Winchester, an Indian rifle. It has tacks for every warrior that was shot, like notches on a pistol, and it's got feathers and beads hanging off it. It's like a work of art.

Tags: Art, Off, Work

I didn't think I could go onstage and play unless I had a beer to loosen up. Well, if it was only one beer to loosen up, I'd probably still be drinking today.

Tags: Beer, Today, Unless

I don't spend much time listening to the records when they're done. Usually I let go of it. Especially in the Eighties and Nineties - they were like product, almost.

Tags: Almost, Done, Time

I have always been fascinated with guns. I grew up in America, so, granted, it is part of our heritage, and it is written into the laws of how this country is run.

Tags: America, Country, Granted

I really didn't like 'Done With Mirrors.' I really didn't like 'Just Push Play.' Then there are other records I really think were good for their time, like 'Toys and Rocks.'

Tags: Done, Good, Time

I'm a Republican, but I'm a Republican from the old school. I was taught that you get what you put into it. You can be anything you want to be if you work hard enough at it, and you can earn your place. That's the old way.

Tags: Hard, School, Work

I've always felt you are only as good as your next album or next show. What you've done is done. When you get a gold record, you hang it on the wall, and then it's like, 'Yeah, next?'

Tags: Done, Good, Show

I've been fascinated with all kinds of weapons my whole life, and as I have been able to afford to acquire pieces, here and there I started to collect.

Tags: Here, Life, Whole

I've been going long enough to prove what I wanted to prove, to get the girl I wanted to get, to make the money I wanted to make, to drink all the beer I wanted to drink. I've played - not exactly everywhere, but I've played enough places.

Tags: Enough, Girl, Money

I've been into guns ever since I was a little kid, and the ones that fascinate me most are the black powder guns that people used back in the 17 and 1800s.

Tags: Black, Since, Used

India brings out so many different feelings in me. I've been fascinated with India and Indian culture as long as I can remember - ever since the '60s with the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Tags: Feelings, Remember, Since

It seems ridiculous that you can be in one state with your driver's license and buy a firearm, and then in the next state it is totally illegal. There are real problems to that, but as soon as you bring up the subject and say 'gun control,' it sets a red flag.

Tags: Control, Problems, Real

It's easy to put on a Deep Purple record and say, 'That sounds great.' But why? Part of it is individual practice, but by playing together, a talent of meshing happens.

Tags: Deep, Great, Together

It's so important for people to pay attention to history and learn from it, because it's the only thing we've got that's going to help us figure out where we are going. Especially the way things are manipulated in the press today. You have to sort through so much stuff to figure out what is real and what is not. It gets harder every day.

Tags: Help, History, Today

L.A. was just an inspiring kind of place to be. It felt like going to Paris in the Twenties and Thirties. Everybody's there. Everybody's hanging around. Everybody's talking about music.

Tags: Everybody, Music, Place

Maybe you could put it out there that I don't have a built-in dislike of ballads. That was kind of the reputation I had back in the Seventies. But I've come around. Ballads have become something of an acquired taste.

Tags: Become, Put, Reputation

My Portuguese uncle had a Portuguese version of a ukulele. The family would pull it out after dinner and play Portuguese folk songs on it. I couldn't wait for him to finish so I could get my hands on it. I was seven or eight years old. And he used to have a Fender amp in his house and an electric guitar. I would spend hours making sounds.

Tags: After, Family, Him

People spend their careers trying to figure out what makes a hit single. But I learned a long time ago that you can't anticipate what people want, because it's always going to change.

Tags: Change, Single, Time

Some of the best rock riffs ever written were by Jimmy Page, and I can't really name the songs, but some of the stuff he did on his first and second records is beyond brilliant.

Tags: Best, Rock, Second

Sometimes when a record's done, I'm satisfied and I won't listen back to it for a while 'cause I'm usually pretty tired of the songs. Then I've got to learn them again to play them live, and sometimes it takes a while to realise it's a really good record.

That's what I love about music. It's immediate. There's a connection whether you are playing at Hyde Park or Chicago, and it's been happening since the beginning of time and the troubadours.

Tags: Love, Music, Time

The Beatles had some juice when it came to distortion, but Clapton was finally able to break through those early studio engineers' fear of overloading. He defined the sound that guitarists spend the rest of their lives trying to get.

Tags: Able, Fear, Trying

The Beatles just changed everything right across the board. They just had that right combination of clean-cut good looks - a cute band - but under that they had a real rock n' roll thing going on.

Tags: Good, Real, Rock

The bottom line is fans just want to hear a good song. Some people will look underneath to see who wrote it, but they just want to hear a good song. And if they don't hear it, they're not going to buy it just because you wrote it.

Tags: Good, Hear, Song

The media plays up celebrity a lot, but it doesn't hold a candle to being a scientist. There's a lot to be said for what they all do, and are trying to accomplish.

Tags: Media, Said, Trying

There's no doubt arena shows are exciting, but you don't get that up close and personal kind of vibe, and that's what rock n' roll is all about for me.

Tags: Doubt, Personal, Rock

When I got sober and started working out, I fell into that trap of working out too much. I know a lot of guys can relate to that - if you don't get that runner's high every day, you feel like, 'Oh my God, I'm losing it.'

Tags: God, Losing, Working

When I plug in my guitar and play it really loud, loud enough to deafen most people, that's my shot of adrenaline, and there's nothing like it. That's what it's always been for me - to be the flame the tribe dances around.

Tags: Enough, Guitar, Shot

Whenever I hear somebody cover a song, I don't like to hear it stray too far from the original. I like to hear some of the new energy that a band will put into it, but you kind of want to hear some of the basic parts of the song. I mean, that's what makes it the song that you like.

Tags: Energy, Mean, Put

A band isn't a band unless they're playing together. Otherwise, it's just five guys that are living off their royalty checks.

Tags: Living, Off, Together

Aerosmith is such a powerful band; I mean, it's like a steam locomotive.

Tags: Band, Mean, Powerful

Describing certain sounds, there's a common language that guitar players have.

Tags: Common, Guitar, Language

For me, L.A. was, and is, a very creative place to be.

Tags: Creative, Place

Hopefully I'm bringing to rock n' roll the kind of spontaneity that I love, and always believed rock and roll stands for.

Tags: Love, Rock, Stands

I don't see anyone avoiding the Stones because DJs make jokes about them being a part of the Geritol set. All it does is make the DJs look stupid.

Tags: Anyone, Jokes, Stupid

I don't think there's anything anybody's doing that the Beatles didn't at least try at some point.

Tags: Anybody, Point, Try

I have seen more bad songs make it because of MTV than good ones that haven't.

Tags: Bad, Good, Seen

I love Indian food - it's my favourite cuisine. I love the mixture of spices and the subtle flavours. It's really erotic; the spices are so sensuous.

Tags: Food, Indian, Love

I love to listen to the music that first inspired me - I get that fresh feeling back.

Tags: Feeling, Love, Music

I think one of the most valuable things Aerosmith has is the energy we produce when we all play together.

Tags: Energy, Together, Valuable

I think people have to be more aware of what the repercussions are of their actions.

Tags: Actions, Aware

I think that... the age of just slapping songs into movies, that's done.

Tags: Age, Done, Movies

I was very fascinated by the time when firearms went from being fire sticks to being something people could use to hunt and to survive.

Tags: Fire, Survive, Time

I'm turned off by the groupie thing. I'm a romantic; I like finding the right woman, and if it works, it works.

Tags: Off, Romantic, Woman

I've come to realize that you live on through recordings; they're like a musical diary, a window into somebody's soul.

Tags: Realize, Somebody, Soul

I've seen bands split up for five years and do nothing. That sounds great to me, but it just hasn't worked out that way.

Tags: Great, Seen, Worked

If you get satisfaction out of playing music and entertaining people and it makes you feel right, then go for it.

Tags: Makes, Music, Playing

Music is music; you don't have to put a label on it.

Tags: Label, Music, Put

Over the years, when you're in a band with a catalog like Aerosmith's, you accumulate a lot of instruments to duplicate those songs.

Tags: Band, Duplicate, Songs

Take life on life's terms - one day at a time. And have fun while you're doing it.

Tags: Fun, Life, Time

Tags: Keep, Mind, Vote

Tags: Career, Child, Music

Tags: Guitar, Love, Sure

Y'know, I don't like jazz much. I'll put it on once in a while and listen, and I'll appreciate it.

Tags: Once, Put, While
