  • Honkin’ on Bobo

    Released in 2004, Honkin’ on Bobo is the least commercial Aerosmith album in decades. As its cover suggests, the blues-inspired record is full of Steven Tyler’s epic harmonica, and indeed it finds the band returning to its raw ’70s roots. Honkin’ on Bobo was even produced by Jack Douglas, the man behind Aerosmith’s most classic ’70s work. Where most blues albums pay scholarly respect to the classics, Aerosmith turns up the volume on these 11 covers and one original (“The Grind”), adding its sleazy blooze-rock stamp all over the songs. As a result, Honkin’ on Bobo is as much a tribute to the British hard-rock bands of the ’60s as the blues originators. Even Aerosmith’s choice of covers is a surprise—from Mississippi Fred McDowell to Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac. Not many bands can rock this hard 30 years in. Fun Fact: Legendary Chuck Berry sideman Johnnie Johnson can be heard playing piano on “Shame, Shame, Shame” and “Temperature.”
