At 2010's Download Festival, one 62-year-old Bostonian's outrageous charisma and incredible voice outshone every other performer by some considerable distance.
It doesn't matter how many of their albums you own, or even if you listen to them that often, if you've never seen Aerosmith live, you need to, and fast. And the whirling rainbow in front of one of the planet's greatest ever rock 'n' roll bands possesses a larynx capable of truly astounding feats. Whether he's singing The Star-Spangled Banner at sporting events or partying and screaming until his vocal chords are bleeding, there's nobody else quite like Steven.
Listen: Aerosmith - Cryin' (live)
