Tyler tells Joe that his management (at the time) was constantly pushing him to finish the record and come up with the lyrics for ‘Walk This Way’. Aerosmith at the time were working on their third studio album, ‘Toys In The Attic’, which was later released April 8 1975 on Columbia records.
“You have a lot of pressure on you, and because they did that I went and wrote ‘Walk This Way’...the lyrics...had them in my bag, finished the whole record, got in a fucking cab, went to the record plant, New York, got out of the cab went upstairs and went “I GOT IT”....and I fucking went white...I left the lyrics in the cab….the whole album...and my producer goes “were doing walk this way tonight”...so I went upstairs took a pencil, listened to the track [Walk This Way] like I did the night before when I wrote the lyrics...and wrote them on the wall and that’s what happend” - Tyler
Tyler released a documentary about his life earlier this year, ‘Steven Tyler: Out On A Limb’.
