UG Classic Rock Band Bio Project #2

If you remember, Fenderfreak101, Wilty00, Derigiberble, and I had a project earlier this year where we would make band bios and put them on a site. The first project ended, but I want to start it again. Come here to sign up to write a band bio. I will make a list of who's writing what in the space below. Post your articles in this thread. NO PLAGARISM!!!

Articles:

frippogenics - Allman Bros. Band
Stula101 - Black Sabbath
xxZoSoxx - Fleetwood Mac
ufossuck - Bachman Turner Overdrive
Fenderfreak101 - Cream
Deadhead31331313 (however you write his name) - Grateful Dead
Maet - Rush
BrainDamage - Yes

Here is the site (for now at least). Come and see what articles have been done before you sign up.

Also, if you sign up, actually write the article. Last time we got a lot of people who signed up and never turned in their articles.

And also, 'cause Derigible didn't really make a point of it, ONLY SIGNUP IF YOU ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO SUBMIT THE ARTICLE. THERE WAS ABOUT 3/4 OF THE SIGNED UP ARTICLES IN THE LAST PROJECT THAT MAGICALLY NEVER SHOWED UP. Bottom line is, only sign up if you plan on staying here at UG and are actually going to write it. Don't waste Floyd's time.

Yeah I wrote the Stones one last time, but I don't think I have it anymore....I could do Deep Purple/Rainbow/Priest or something like that if needed.

I'd love to help out, and finally see this put into action, but i have enough work for finals right now.

I've got winter break soon, so ill do an article on Cream during that time.

Maybe even a few more, seeing as Cream lasted a whole 2 years.

Heres my Aerosmith one...

The All American Band

Aerosmith was formed in 1970 in Sunapee, New Hampshire by 5 small town guys who just wanted to rock. The current band consists of lead singer, ?the deamon of ?screamin?, Steven Tallarico (Now known as Steven Tyler), guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, bassist Tom Hamilton, and drummer Joey Kramer.

The Birth Of Aerosmith
Steven Tyler?s first band, Chain Reaction (Formerly ?The Strangeurs?), was first formed in 1964. Steven was the drummer, and the band mainly performed cover songs of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The yardbirds, and The Animals. Meanwhile, Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton form the band Pipe Dream, which is blues based.
Aerosmith was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970. The first lineup for Aerosmith was Steven Tallarico (drummer and lead vocals), Joe Perry (lead guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass), and Ray Tabano (guitar). Ray Tabano left Aerosmith in 1971 and was replaced by Brad Whitford. Also, the band took on Joey Kramer to play drums so that Steven could be the lead singer, which he always wanted to be. The band took off when in 1972 when they were offered a record deal with Columbia Records for $125 000. Aerosmith entered the music industry with a bang, when their first album self-entitled ?Aerosmith?. In 1973, the It sold over 2 million copies in the U.S. and went platinum twice. "Dream On", just as popular today as it was 30 years ago, didn?t go over to well with the fans, until it was re-released in 1976 to become aerosmiths first ?Top 10? hit. Next, Get Your Wings was released in the summer of 1974. Wings stayed on the charts for a year and a half and has gone platinum 3 times. In 1975, Aerosmiths third album was released called ?Toys in the Attic?. It had hits like ?Sweet Emotion? and ?Walk This Way?, both mega-hits. ?Rocks?, the bands fourth album, went platinum immediately on release and is considered by some Aerosmiths best album.

The Dark Years
Starting in the 70?s, Aerosmith started being careless with their money. Steven Tyler and Joe Perry were being known as ?The Toxic Twins? because of their hard drug use. These kids at heart from Boston were being taken over by the glamour of the rock world, and were throwing their careers away. The bands next Album, ?Draw The Line?(Obvious drug reference), did well but definitely not up to the bands expectations. The band tried to convert to more blues-based rock, and the fans weren?t into it. The bands next album, ?A Night in the Ruts?, was a bomb. The rage between Joe Perry and the band had turned from a dimlight candle to a raging flame. Joe felt the need to quit the band and pursue a solo career, and quit the band during recording. Jimmy Crespo was brought in to replace Joe, and this marked the downfall of classic Aerosmith. In 1981, Brad Whitford left the band and had to be replaced by Rick Dufay. Steven Tyler spent most of the year recovering from a serious motorcycle accident, so the band couldn?t tour and lost a lot of money. By now Perry and Tyler were throwing their lives away with their drug use.The band often got in fights and bet rocks of cocaine on them. Aerosmith had hit rock bottom, until the drugs began to be old news and the band began to feel the old feeling they hadn?t felt in five years. A feeling that the band had enjoyed for almost all the 20 years they had been together, through love and through hate, to be back on top of Rock ?N Roll.

The Recovery
After the release of ?Rock In a Hard Place?, the band?s wounds begin to heal. Brad and Joe begin to visit their old band backstage after concerts. The band signed with Geffen Records, and begin to feel the old buzz that they hadn?t felt in 5 years of being apart. Aerosmith re-entered the charts for the first time in 6 years when the rap trio called ?Run DMC? remixed the song into an incredible smash hit. In an interview, Tyler said (On the reunion tour of the band) ?We crawled out from under our troubles and got in touch with ourselves.?

A New Era
Aerosmith was back on top, in a completely different genre. Although the band had transformed into more commercially based music, they were still the leaders. Their hits ?Dude Looks Like A Lady?, ?Angel? and ?Rag Doll? tore up the charts. Their 10th studio album, ?Pump?, goes multi-platinum. The boys received numerous MTV awards, a grammy, and were inducted into the Boston Gardens Hall Of Fame. Joe and Steven were into rehab, and within a year both were clean. In 1993, ?Get A Grip? is released, and sells over 5 million copies. After the release of the double platinum record ?Nine Lives? in 1997, Aerosmith begins to work on ?Just Push Play?, and the album is released on March 6th debuting at #2 on the MTV charts. Earlier on this year, Aerosmith released their blues based album ?Honkin On Bobo? which is basically a tribute to all their influences. Aerosmith started out on blues, and the songs on the CD are the songs that influenced them to start their careers, and continue with them through the harder times. The Honkin on Bobo tour brought old fans and new fans together in the same stadium with the same idea. Rock ?til you drop.

What Is To Come
Throughout their careers, the five boys from Aerosmith have dealt with everything. Through friendship, through hatred, through near death experiences, to living life like it?ll never end. Somehow, they made it through everything. Through 30+ years, they?re still rocking like nobodys business. They?ve been to the top, and they?ve been to the bottom together. Aerosmith was inducted into the Rock ?N Roll Hall of Fame on March 19th, 2001, proving that they belong and that they truly are the ?Kings of Rock and Roll?

After All, They Truly Are "The All American Band"

Hey, guys, to all of you who are resending past articles, don't repost them. They're already on the site. I'll post a link to the site soon. Also, I may not have time to check up here often. I've been quite busy this school year.
