    Aerosmith '73 - '79 Top 10

    We are covering our Aerosmith Top 10 favorite songs from '73 - '79. We get into some of the bands history, our history with the band, and what they meant to us growing up.

    Since Sonny is not a huge Aerosmith fan, I have enlisted the help of special guest and life long Aerosmith fans Phil Shouse from Accept, The Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley Bands, along with fellow podcaster and host of Damn Good Movie Memories, Brian Davis.

If you love Rock n’ Roll, this is the show for you!

Steven & Sonny have a variety of themes and episode topics, but one thing remains constant- It’s all about Rock n’ Roll! 🤘🏼😎🤘🏼

SpaceAce30 ,

Rock is still alive!

They say rock is dead, but that’s not true. It’s out there, you just have to find it. Sonny and Steven do a great job keeping Rock alive. The podcast highlights new rock music and discusses the classic rock I grew up with. I highly recommend this podcast if your a fan of Rock N Roll.

Keep up the amazing work Sonny and Steven! I look forward to this podcast every week!

A Must Listen

I love the diversity of music discussed and the varying opinions of the two hosts. I was turned on to this is a very roundabout way. Negative comments directed towards a Jody of a Kiss podcast (by a Dr) lead me to search out Podcast Rock City. Sonni far and away steals that show, which lead me to Growin Up Rock. Thank goodness! This is a go to podcast for me!! 5 stars.
