Steven Tyler Shares Story Behind Aerosmith's Legendary Child
"Joe put the lead lick down. It was, 'Oh my God, we're back,'" Tyler tells Rolling Stone. "It was so incredibly true at that moment to me that the band was back in the severest of ways. I was overjoyed."
When the band got a call to submit a song for the soundtrack to the upcoming action film G.I. Joe: Retaliation, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Bruce Willis, they submitted the instrumental version as Tyler had yet to complete lyrics and add his vocals.
The filmmakers liked what they heard but needed to hear Tyler's vocals before committing. It was just the push the singer needed. Read Steven's comments about that and watch video here.
