Aerosmith’s third album, featuring killer tracks like Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion, saw the band perfect their sound, overlaying Joey and Tom Hamilton’s funky grooves with blistering guitar licks.
Joey Kramer says:
“Toys In The Attic was one of the many records that we did with Jack Douglas. Anything that you do with Jack is fun because he’s all about having fun. I have memories of doing Toys In The Attic and being on the floor next to my drums, on my back, laughing.”
“Tom, myself and Brad did most of the basic tracks on that record and we worked really hard with Jack. We had a good time doing all those records, but Toys In The Attic was just a lot of laughs. The record was a milestone in the career of the band. I think for a lot of people it’s still their favourite record. It’s one of my favourites.”
“In Walk This Way, there are three different figures in there: one for the verse, one for the pre-chorus, one for chorus. That’s what a song is all about, it’s got to have a start, a middle and a finish, just like everything else. That’s what makes life exciting.”
