2. Tyler released his first single as a drummer back in the 1960s
Steven gained worldwide fame thanks to being a founding member of Aerosmith from the 1970s, but his first real band that got a single in the jukebox was known as Chain Reaction. Tyler was the drummer and reserve singer in the band when they released “The Sun” / “When I Needed You” in 1966. It was this small but significant first look at success in the music business that would make him a local hero in New England to teenagers and future members of Aerosmith Tom Hamilton and Joe Perry.
