The ex-Smith proves his greatness on a spiky live album
Aerosmith; Hard Rock Café, London: Monday February 19
Ya-ya-ya-ya-yeow! Stadium rock stripped to 150-strong secret gig

We get flying solos, we get funky breakdowns and ‘Cryin’’ sung suggestively to a pretty blonde, we get the lot. “Going down, Mr Tyler?” Not anytime soon.
