Better Than: Any American Idol performance. Ever.
Over the past few years, Aerosmith has been the focus of some rather mixed media attention, generally fueled by lead singer Steven Tyler's assorted (and very public) antics which have, at times, nearly spelled the death of the band. However, it is the same refusal to age with too
much grace (when coupled with one of the most distinct voices in rock 'n' roll) that makes Tyler one of best frontmen to ever walk the stage.

Having released their first album of original music in over a decade, the legendary band from Boston is back to brass tacks, and last night's performance demonstrated that the band is far removed from the drama that has plagued its recent years. The group is back to doing what they do best: Providing an arena with a night of blistering rock 'n' roll ecstasy, while making sure your mom is completely hot and bothered.
