  • Draw the Line

    When it came time to make album #5, Aerosmith was nose-deep in the excessive rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. Yet, the band still pulled it off. Released in 1977, Draw the Line was recorded in an abandoned convent just outside New York City. In addition to partying around the clock, the band got back to basics and laid down some sinister hard-rock tracks. Guitarist Joe Perry stands out on the opening title track with his mean slide-guitar riff and on “Bright Light Fright” with his first lead vocal. Other highlights include a reworking of Kokomo Arnold’s “Milk Cow Blues,” the epic tale of “Kings and Queens” with its inventive guitar interplay, and the roadhouse boogie “Critical Mass” featuring Steven Tyler’s wailing blues harp. This would prove to be the last studio album to feature the original Aerosmith lineup for nearly a decade. Fun Fact: The band’s name does not appear on the album cover; instead, there is a portrait of its members by renowned caricaturist Al Hirschfeld.
