Book Review: New Aerosmith Book Highlights The Bad Boys From Boston

The band, Aerosmith has had countless books written about their highs and lows, their trials and tribulations, their break-ups and comebacks, but never has a book about the band been captured in images so well as “Aerosmith: The Ultimate Illustrated History of the Boston Bad Boys.” Author Richard Bienstock, senior editor of Guitar World magazine, does a great job outlining the history of the band with quotes from the band and with amazing full-color pictures.

The book begins with each band member discussing how they came to join one of America’s biggest rock bands. Like many other books by Voyageur Press, each Aerosmith album gets discussed in full detail. Like how the album was written, recorded and perceived by fans, beginning their debut album all the way up until their 2004 covers album, “Honkin’ on Bobo.”

In between, we get over 400 color and B&W pictures of the band throughout their history. This book also features many great concert posters and international released album covers. With so many wonderful images, you’ll need to read through this book a few times just to capture all that has been put into this 224 page document of the band.

Whether you’ve been a long time fan of Aerosmith or just getting introduced to the band, this book is a must have. Long time fans will love going through each page, reliving their memories while new fans can catch-up on what they’ve missed on the history of one of the greatest rock bands of all-time.

This hardcover edition was published on September 15 through the Quayside Publishing Group in association with Voyageur Press. For more information on this and other amazing books by Voyageur Press, please visit their website,
