Acclaimed session man Tommy Demander’s childhood dream of taking the stage in front of thousands of screaming fans has manifested in ways once thought unimaginable.
Posturing at stage left, faithfully flanking Aerosmith’s titular vocalist, Steven Tyler, Perry’s driving riffs drove home classic tracks such as “Mama Kin,” “Same Old Song and Dance,” “Walk This Way,” and “Draw the Line.” For the Bad Boys from Boston,” the 70s was truly theirs, as the fivesome took the mantle of “America’s Greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll Band.
Best known as the frontman for the late-stage era of the Joe Perry Project, “Cowboy” Mach Bell’s lineage runs far deeper than the average armchair rock devotee could ever imagine.
As for Tyler, who along with guitarist Joe Perry once made up half of the infamously anointed “toxic twins,” is no stranger to battling addiction. Things actually got so dire for Tyler and his bandmate’s substance abuse troubles that their addictions all but halted the band, sending the once lionized band careening to a disastrous standstill at its initial peak.
