A piece of rock ‘n’ roll history involving Boston band Aerosmith has been found on the other side of Massachusetts.

In a recently aired episode of the hit History Channel show, “American Pickers,” hosts and antique scavengers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz tracked down the band’s original tour van in Chesterfield that the group used to schlep to gigs around New England in the early 1970s.

I first saw Aerosmith open for Black Sabbath at Madison Square Garden in 1975, and ended up working with the band in 1979-80.  A wild ride to say the least, and I wrote it all down in "BABYSITTING A BAND ON THE ROCKS" (available at Newbury Comics locations throughout the Northeast and online at > Webstore > Books). Also adventures with AC/DC, pink Floyd, Van Halen, jethro Tull, Billy Joel, Keith Richards and more...

You are welcome.  Aerosmith is going to do a Vegas residency in 2019. I would love to see the van in the show. 😀
