Song of the Day: Aerosmith – “Last Child”

Happy birthday wishes go out to Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford, who turns 65 today. Here’s a classic Aerosmith track co-written by Whitford, one that has always been one of my favorites from the band (and I’m guessing a favorite of many other Aerosmith listeners). The track was the lead single off the 1976 album Rocks and depicts life on the road for the band at the time. Per, Whitford said in the Aerosmith biography Walk This Way that one day he began playing the riff to the song and Steven Tyler liked what he heard and started playing the drums, then Joe Perry added a part of his own and everything took off from there.
