humble beginnings

humble beginnings

Aerosmith were recently part of an episode of American Pickers on the History channel.

The hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz were in Chesterfield, Massachusetts when they stumbled upon a 1964 International Harvester Metro truck that had Aerosmith’s name painted on the side.

After a little investigating they confirmed that it was indeed the band’s former truck.

Aerosmith’s original rhythm guitarist, Ray Tabano made an appearance on the show, saying, “We’d drive from Boston up to New Hampshire [to play] for $125, then after the gas, the tolls, and the food and back, we’d make like $3 apiece… It just reminded me of the humble beginnings and I look at where (the band has) gone today — it’s just amazing.”

How could he NOT wish he stuck it out a little longer?
