Weekdays 2:00pm–7:00pm

19. Steven Tyler

Throughout the month of February, 102.9 WMGK will count down the 20 greatest classic rock singers decided by our listener vote. 

We’ll dedicate daily blocks to one singer who’s made the list every weekday throughout the month.

MGK will celebrate Steven Tyler of Aerosmith on Thursday, Feb. 2. 

Aerosmith released their self-titled debut album with Columbia Records in 1972. Tyler quickly exploded onto the scene as the front man and lead vocalist propelled by the single track “Dream On” rising toward the top of the charts.

Aerosmith released Toys in the Attic in 1975. The album included two of the band’s most iconic hits, “Walk This Way” and “Sweet Emotion.”

They have recorded 15 total studio albums, and Tyler released We’re All Somebody From Somewhere solo in 2016. He has also played piano, harmonica, and percussion at different points with Aerosmith, widely considered one of the greatest American rock bands.

His work earned him the #19 spot on the list in 2023.
