A lot of bands come and go. Many musicians aspire to last long in the music business but only those who create really good rock songs can transcend time and perform in sold-out concerts even until today.
The 80s is an era that has produced numerous rock bands. Some say that it is the golden age for rock stars and rock bands. Here is a list of bands that are still doing their thing today.
A mere mention of Steven Tyler resonates rock band aura. He is the lead singer of Aerosmith. This band was formed in 1971 when Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton, and Ray Tabano met each other. Originally from other bands, they started making music in Boston, Massachusetts. Guitarist Ray Tabano was later replaced by Brad Whitford.
Aerosmith produced some of the most iconic songs of its time. “Walk This Way” was a great influence on music fans because of the creation of a new genre, that is, rap-rock. This was a collaboration between Aerosmith and Run- D.M.C. Another song that reached number 1 in the US Billboard Hot 100 is “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing.” It was the soundtrack of the movie Armageddon which starred Bruce Willis.
Today, Aerosmith still sings their songs in music halls in Las Vegas and around the world.
The Who is an English band that was formed in the 1960s. It was one of the most influential rock bands of all time. Some rock stars that we have today even see them as idols and rock gods.
The original group was made of Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Keith Moon, and John Entwistle. They are mostly recognized for their contributions to music like the development of a synthesizer, new guitar techniques, playing styles, and the creation of Marshall Stack.
