Steven Tyler has acknowledged the 45th anniversary of “Dream On,” which was released on June 27th, 1973. He says, “If it weren’t for the boys in Aerosmith (and thank you WBCN) it never would have seen the light of day.”
In another post he says, “I wrote the music when I was 17 on a pump organ in Sunapee, New Hampshire. I wrote the lyrics in two days at a hotel at Boston Logan Airport and sang it live for the first time at the Shaboo Inn in Mansfield, Connecticut…” Tyler, who is on tour with his solo band, performed it 45 years to the day, last Wednesday, in Detroit.
